Fun but Frustrating
on 15 February 2013
After playing the game, it has proven to be both fun and frustrating. It is a more-or-less standard first-person shooter, but the graphics are excellent and the missions challenging. There are two parts to the frustration; first, even in single-player mode, one has to log into Origin. I don't know whether it's directly related to that, but several times already the game has crashed. Worse, though, are the controls. For example, to stay in the crouched or prone position, the appropriate key has to be held down the entire time, which can be awkward when trying to do several things at once; the controls in Call of Duty 4 are much superior. Also, I find trying to drive a vehicle using the arrow keys difficult. (This is the same problem with the initial Medal of Honour game.) If they insist on including a driving scenario, they should at least provide a decent way to steer; if they can have a person on foot steerable with the mouse, why not the vehicle?
In short, if you have the patience to re-play the same scenario several times, it's a pretty good game.
