I want to be annoyed...but it's just too good!
on 6 July 2007
Let's get this out of the way first: this game is amazing. From the lovely visuals that capture the look and feel of the various locales (yes, the title is a little misleading), to the incredibly intuitive cover and combat system, to the well paced single player and expansive multiplayer campaigns. But wait...man down! Whilst the single player campaign is well paced, it's so short! Having owned the game for a week, i've been able to play a little here and there, loving every minute, only to find out that I was on the penultimate level after only a few days casual play! Whilst this is a problem somewhat compensated for by the replayability of the main story mode and the expansive online suite, this is not a game for those who are looking for a long single player story mode!
As a relatively young (and poorly financed) PS3 owner, I try to ensure I get the maximum play value out of the £40-£50 I have to spend on games (leading to my best investment yet: Oblivion!), and feel slightly cheated out of my hard earned cash.
But despite all of this, despite the fact that I want to be annoyed with the game, i just can't quite manage it...it's just too damn good! So, all in all, a high quality title that lives up to the standard of Ubisoft's recent output - but it won't last you forever!
