As always, let's cover system requirements. Even though the game was made in 2011, the graphics look like it was made back in 2008.
Vista, 7, or 8
Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz
2 GB RAM
Shader Model 3.0 graphics card with 256MB of memory
NVIDIA GeForce 7900GS or ATI Radeon 1900XT
Intel or AMD Quad Core 2 GHz+ CPU
NVIDIA GeForce 260 or ATI Radeon 4850
Worst part of this game is the graphics. They are really outdated. If I didn't know the year the game came out, I would have guessed that the game was made in 2008. On top of bad graphics, you will encounter a number of glitches. There are places you can't go and you can't go in front of your teammate most of the time. Score is 3 out of 10.
There is nothing unusual about the soundtracks of this game. There was not a single song that got into my mind, so I don't even recall a single composition. Score is 4 out of 10.
Even with bad graphics, I enjoyed the action. It never got boring. There are times you play with a handgun and times you hold a sniper rifle. I got to play in a helicopter shooting enemies on the ground and got to play in other military equipment. Score is 8 out of 10.
I was not a fan of the story either. Pretty much America is taken over by Korea and your responsibility is to rescue USA from the enemies. In 70s or even 80s, the story was sort of special, but in 2013, it's getting kind of lame. Score is 5 out of 10.
As in most warfare games, surrounding are real. Guns and military machines are real. Throughout the game, you'll have easy head shots to make, which is pretty unrealistic from a long distance. If you played Call of Duty, level or realism is the same as that game. Score is 8 out of 10.
Overall the game was surely fun, but single player was pretty short and does not have multiplayer. If you are wondering what price tag this game deserves, I'll go with $20.
