This is a FREAKIN AWESOME game. I have no idea what Joe is talkin about. Sure the graphics aren't the best ever, but the sound is good. Yes there are a few boring missions, but there are a lot of very exciting ones. It takes a lot of time, and plenty of hours. In a whole week, I only got through 15 or so missions out of 60+ plus missions. And, you do get to use the character you made for use in the campaign. Sure, you do play as afew other ppl, but you do get to play as your person (except for the name). Some AI are stupid, but not that stupid, they do find cover. I give this a really good grade because of the content, missions, vehivles, ways to complete missions, its a free choice shooter. Battlefield is really good, but it is limited to a pretty small area with only a few objectives, take over, ctf, whatever. Everyone should try this game.
P.S. It tells you the coordinates you may not understand, but it gives you what direction to go also.
