"A great game that, although has problems, is worth the time."
Lets start off with my time through this. I've been playing this game since it came out and I am trying to finish up on Hardcore mode. I will be discussing the multiplayer and single player of the game. I will review this out of 100, with each category having a certain amount of points to it.
Sound- The sound is great with songs that would be from Africa. When you are facing enemies, the music will change to address the problem of men trying to kill you.
Graphics- The graphics are just breathtaking. Fire comes alive on my TV as I burn an outpost to the ground and the jungle, desert, and Savannah terrains make this one of the best looking games I've seen in a while
Story- The story is where this game is most laking. it is almost too simplistic with the mission of killing the Jackal. After the first halve of this game, the story picks up. You feel more attached to this game and want to get revenge. Overall a decent story that shines in the end
Controls- The controls are easy to learn and aren't that hard to pick up. Standard left trigger aim, and right trigger shoot. I don't have any problems with this games controls, but there has been better.
Online- This game has great online play. There are many game modes and the class system is a good idea in this game. Unlock the classes guns you want the most and become the best. The map editor makes this even better allowing you to create almost anything. Games are often hard to find though.
Gameplay-This is where the most of the points come from. The health system is a fine line between regenerative health ala CoD, but you can still heal yourself unlock BF:BC.. You just have to preform mini-surgery on yourself to heal yourself all the way, and use syrettes in single player. The Health of enemies can be frustrating as it seems like the enemies are wearing body armor even when they have no shirt on. The repairing of vehicles is strange, as you can repair it just by turning a single screw(not an expert on vehicles) and rocket propelled grenades bouncing off the ground. But the reloads and guns feel realistic even though the guns are for left handed people. The game is fun over all, and is worth your time
Overall review- 92/100=9/10
