A confusingly overlooked FPS
on 13 November 2013
For some reason this game seems to come in for a bit of stick and I can't understand why.
The storyline is good, the graphics far surpass a lot of what is in, wait for it.......COD games (I bought this for something to play waiting for the release of Ghosts), and it has good gameplay (I am using the battlefield layout).
Gamers ask for realism with these games and for what I can see the developers have been brave enough to try and provide it and they have come into for some flack for it?!
"..it's to dark" now I am far from a Ross Kemp styled veteran of warfare but I have never heard of a war in which both sides stopped and rigged up a bit of better lighting first. ".....the aiming is erratic" nope, what it is is more close to the truth. Guns have recoil they don't stay where you point and automatically return to the same point after firing. Also they have, not sure if anyone has noticed added bullet drop to ALL shots. Meaning those sweet moments so easy to come by in COD when you take a headshot to someone standing 100 yards away is a bit harder to come buy. This is also because, even though previous reviews have stated the AI is poor (?) the enemy takes cover, they work as a team and will try and work towards where you've tried to hide yourself. "....you have no compass" yeh because every soldier I have ever seen walks around with one strapped to their face! This game is more tactical and about you making the right decisions. As said, never been there but if I was being chased through the hurricane swept streets of a strange city pursued by gunmen I wouldn't have a compass in hand.....more likely toilet paper.
Only criticism is that it is far to short!!! Well worth £10-£20 though.
