Here is a game that just screams attention, and it should get it. This is no Â«Halo-Killer» as alot of people call it, this is a game all on its own. The differences is that you can play with more then one character and the story is a little different with that character. You have Templar the leader, weapon: Assault Rife/grenade launcher. Lugar the assasin, weapon: Small assault rife/sniper, knife and heat vission. Rico, the heavy gunner, Weapon: chain gun/missle launcher. Hakka, half helgast spy, weapon: helgast assault rife/shotgun and knife.
The story is simple: kill the invading Helgast. You are the ISA and you take no welcome when it comes with invading srum. This guys are mean, well trained, smart but stupid all in one, and just plain old hard to take down with one shoot. They look like freaks with a gas mask, all in black and with a wid take on weapons that make the USA look like a school girl on a sunday morning.
You can`t drive the vehicles but you can make them go BOOM and its jsut so pretty. The sniping is cool when you get used to it. You have a sprint option you will use when you are in a hurry, witch is alot in this game. The guns rule, the weapons are just so well made and planed that its different every time you fire it. Height matters and you can`t run fast with a rocket lancher. There is not melee, only when the icon poops up, same gose with jumping over things and climbing ladders, all in FPS view, sweet!
The graphics are some what dated and could be better, the AI not so great sometimes, there are soem bugs in this game that make the sky go away, make your enemies invisible and it looks like a flowting gun shooting at you. The game is laking alot of good things, but it is not terrible and its worth playing if you like FPS. Its hard near the end, you are a 4 man army and you jsut can`t believe you killed all those Helgast and survived it.
The game gets fast in firefights, the lighting feels real and the explosions are well made. This game is good, and its fun online with up to 16 people. You can play this game over and over just for the story that sticks to your skin.
This game could be better but its a start of something, or series, that will be worth the wait. I only recomend this to FPS fans and the ones that love action.
