if you have too much money and want to waste it, then get this game, otherwise, save that 50 bucks. this game is not worth it. I got it as present for my birthday so i can't really complain about wasting money but game play is too arcade like, guns sounds very toy ish not even realistic, character voice is terrible, especially koreans when they speak their native language(i guess they couldn't hire real koreans to do the voice? heck I would've done it). Don't even compare this game to bfbc2.

This isn't a good game but it isn't totally garbage either. I agree save the 50 and wait for it to drop down to $5-10. Then I think it would be worth it.

I have heard the MP is actually alright but the marketing was for the SP which turns out is a whopping 4 hours long and not really that great. Too bad I had high hopes. Oh well... saves me money.

Got it , played it maybe 3out of 5 only took about 3 hours to go through it , now just trying to find all the newspapers. LOL Its got some good points but not many, predictable ,pretty good graphics , no surround support that I can find , too short , MP could be fun in the suburbs though. Just loading up Crysis 2 hopefully it will be better.

Yeah this game turned out to be a total dud. Luckily I got Metro 2033 free with it and I'm starting my second playtrough in russian with english subtitles.

The SP was decent, but the storyline puttered out and was destroyed by the clipping and scripting issues. MP was just as unrefined IMHO, and just comes off as another substandard boring military game.

No native surround/eyefinity support, with the amount of games these days that lunch with it and THQ saying they'll make it available if there is enough demand leaves me unimpressed and i doubt i'll give this game a shot (amongst other negatives i heard about the game)
