Here is a review that I wrote on this game within the specified parameters that the admins have bestowed upon me:
Graphics: Nice, polished, and realistic. Absolutely no complaints, the building and terrain destruction is awesome, explosions and vehicles and interactions with vehicles and players and stuff easily keep me entertained through the long matches and stuff
HUD totally works and blends in with the environment yet stands out just enough for you to get the important stuff.
Presentation(sounds, controls, and online): the sound is real, it's gritty, it's entertaining and is overall just great...for sound anyways. The ambient sounds are realistic and it's just cool the amount of detail in this game. Even after you shoot your gun you can hear an echo in the distance...so much stuff too, too much to say but don't want this to turn into a wall of text
There's a lot to controls, a lot to control. The default settings are unlike those of most other games of the same genre, so you'll probably have to remap them to suit whatever CoD and other stuff has taught you but once that's all said and done the game rolls much more smoothly and controlling infantry as well as the vehicles is easy as spelling "I" and playing this game will enhance your size by 2 inches
As far as online goes: phenomenal. The inclusions of squads within an army gameplay makes online play absolutely awesome and deep and I feel that people don't use it to its full potential. You can spawn on your squad members as well as at your base, which ALMOST eliminates spawn camping...or is at least a great milestone in its prevention. The only thing that subtracts points from this section is the other players. They rarely communicate if ever. But that's only a personal problem, the microphones being too quiet takes away from the potential that online play has...nothing major but whatever...people do fine without it. Oh, and noobtubes aren't a problem... they're mainly for blowing holes in walls for temporary cover and creating distractions.
Gameplay: This game feels solid and the gameplay is great. The bullet drop makes it all that much more and realistic. This isn't too easy because, unlike in MW2, you can't get a heashot across the map with an M9 by simply aiming at the head, and hitting a moving target is even harder because your bullets take time to reach their target. Yet this is not too hard as most situations will find you in fairly close quarters with everything and everyone in this game...both singleplayer and multiplayer. All in all, this will be very offsetting and new to you at first but you'll get the hang of things very quickly. Especially if you play the single player campaign first. Adding wind to curve the bullets might be too hard for most people to grasp and it's kinda hard to tell wind speed in a video game so I'm kinda glad it's not THAT realistic. I think it's just right and so deserves a perfect 10.
Replayability: Hell yeah this game is very replayable. Every single time you play it, the experience is different. Due to the variation of vehicles and infantry loadouts and...stuff, you'll always be adjusting yourself to new challenges and finding a lot of ways of going about things. Things have remained fresh for me since The game came out and I look forward to the coming days of enjoyment.AVERAGE: 10
This game is awesome, the only complaint here is the lack of mic communication due to the game making mics quieter than usual. I play on PC so I wouldn't know what the console versions are like, but I would assume the worst since you have so much to do on such a small controller but whatever. You guys can be the judges now
