Storyline: 10/10 -
With 14 different levels to play, and 3 difficulty levels to play at, this game makes for a great story. It all goes in order, with 14 very nicely done levels. After you finish the game (or before, for that matter), you can do different training levels, such as terrorist hunts. Extremely Nice.
Graphics: 10/10 -
As soon as i saw this, the first thing i said to my father was WOW. They are simply stunning. As one of the members of your team is communicating through their headset, their characters mouth moves. How cool is that?
With greatly detailed weapons and characters, on top of a very extremely nice level, this makes it better graphics than halo in my opinion.
Sound: 9/10 -
With every weapon having a unique sound, it makes it extremely realistic with every texture having a different bullet reflecting sound. Men making realistic sounds as they are shot makes the sound definitely something to be happy about.
Realism: 11/10 -
Good god... the realism of this game earns it an extra point. Just to name a few things... If you look into a flashbang grenade head on, when it goes off, the image you were seeing is burned into your characters eyes for a few seconds, in a white image, and your ears are ringing, just as in real life.. whereas if you are facing 90 degrees from where it is going off, you will be half blinded for a shorter time and your ears will ring for a short time.
Another is if you go into some tear gas, your character will begin to get tears in his eyes and make your vision blurry. Thats some of the coolest stuff i've ever experienced in a game. As i said before, your characters mouths move, which is pimp as hell. This aspect of the game is just so simply amazing i cannot stress it enough.
Controls: 9/10 -
The controls are great, everything is very easy to use, the only problem is that it is hard to get used to. They are difficult to explain, but just expect to have to play for about an hour before you get the controls down.
Online Play: 10/10 -
Online play is awesome.. there are many different levels from the campaign that you can play on, in team survival games. You join either the green team or the red team, and you just face the other team. This mode is similar to counterstrike online, if you have ever played that. Very similar. You can also play missions and terrorist hunts with your buddies.
Friends list is easy to use, communicator is activated.
Overall: 10/10 -
This game has been one of my best buys for xbox yet, if you havent picked it up yet, i recommend you check it out immediately.
