Now that it’s out, here’s where we can talk about the actual game (I have it for PS3, if anyone is wondering).
I greatly enjoyed it. I wish the campaign were longer, but from what it did have I thought it was wonderful.
-Fighting someone with a damn uniform, for once.
-The West Wing. Hell, I thought the entire Airborne campaign was fun. I don’t know why, but fighting in trenches in front of the White House was great fun.
The Frustrating (not ‘bad’ per se, but made me want to throw my controller at the screen):
-The militia levels and the level where the Americans and Russians were fighting each other, and you had to run through the firefight. A couple of times I was pinned down with bullets flying everywhere, afraid to move.
My favorite cinematic cuts were the one with the astronaut above the earth and the one where Ghost and the other Brit got it. With the space scene the moment I saw the blast I thought, “EMP.” When Ghost got murdered I actually stuttered, “What the fuck, dude!?” I did not see that coming, although I should have.
I really didn’t have an issue with the mall scene. I mean, story wise it didn’t make much sense, as others have said. But it’s just a video game, so I didn’t get disturbed in the least bit. It was weird killing Americans in the latter levels, though.
