8/10 is too high. I'd say more like 3.5/10.
It looks good but its horrible for a game that has tried to be realistic. Fire can't spread too far before it stops burning, vehicles have shot out wheels and smashed in engines fixed with a trusty tool (don't know what it is mind), you get shot to pieces and are magically better with the use of morphine, there are no doctor visits, you can't run very well (very well occurs in CoD4), everyone is out to get you (lazy AI programming), missions are the same and shooting people is all fine and dandy until you put one of your 'buddies' (I hate them) out of his misery then you have to turn away as its simply too painful. Ha!

I want to finish this game to say that I beat it. But it pains me to do so. Don't get me wrong, I like the guns and some of the game mechanics but there are to many annoyances to make it worth while for me.

I enjoyed the game quite a bit myself. Only thing I highly disliked about it was the respawning roadblocks. They were re manned far to often, like within 5 minutes of you wiping them out. At the very least they should have been un manned for a few hours, game time. After all, there is a day/night cycle, why isn't there a realistic timeframe for the gaurds to be cycled?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

This is one of the few games on my list of "Never completed", and considering I normally complete most games I play at least twice, that's an achievement.

Boring. Really really boring. But pretty.

4/10 imo.

Also: One of the game "extras" when you buy the pro edition is a "Silenced shotgun". What? SILENCED SHOTGUN??? You ARE taking the piss, right?

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.
