Direct X 11 does it again, Intense Action!!!<br /> " Where is the design and levels from E3"

9.0

Just Right
Time Spent:

The Bottom Line:
"Best in series"

Summary

Graphics: More polished BF3, Textures and Characters stand out on gameplay not fmv. The Physx are amazing considering not using Physx.
This is why I am a PC gamer. Far a head on graphics. Will need a Monster machine to play this smooth on DX11. The Rain is insane.

Sound: Amazing , The voice from the brefing sound like the guy from A-Team intro.

Controls: PC perfect! You can also use a 360 controller

Gameplay: Love those 3rd person shooter you can see all the details.
Would of love the snow level to be about the stealth then the mech shooting
missles. Best thing about this game is you can go Recon with the Drone or you can "Watch all the heavenly Glory" BruceLee. The Customization on the guns before mission is a nice touch. The cover system is perfect. Controlling each men for a kill is great.

The reason for the 9.0 is because its missing the entire concept of E3 .
That level from E3 is missing and the design. The graphics is there though
The Replay value is very high. Just what pc users need . Go Buy it now.
Don't forget your new videocard. You will need it, I have a GTX560 2GB and only getting locked at 25fps. But ran the entire game.

The Bottom Line:
"Broken"

Summary

First impression:

As usual, first I crank up the resolution and video quality settings to the max, as my computer handles every game I throw at it without a hitch.

Starting the campaign. Realizing as the intro video starts that I was too optimistic, and the game stutters like crazy. Ok, trying to get back into the options to optimize. Nope, can't.

Wait 5 minutes for a boring non-skippable intro sequence to finish in 10FPS, before I can have roughly 30 seconds of stuttery gameplay that ends with another lengthy video sequence that lasts five more minues.

Ok, finally I could get to the real game, but it's completely unplayable due to poor framerate so I decide to quit and change the video settings. Going from 2560x1600 to 1280x1024. Wait for loading.. nope.. Still stuttery..

Long story short, after about one hour later I had tweaked the game to a state where the framerate made it playable. But at this point I was already pretty fed up, and the game looks like something from the early 2000..

I played for a while, and it is your typical run of the mill shooter that practically plays itself. You can just duck behind cover and wait it out if you want. Your tech gizmos makes it so easy to play, you need absolutely no skills whatsoever.

Before I could move further to see if there was more challenging stuff ahead, the game crashed.

Needless to say, complete waste of money. This is a rushed port of a mediocre game to squeeze out some more money from the PC version. Horribly optimized, and as boring, linear and dumbed down as it gets.




DO NOT BUY without working patch available

Abysmal

The Bottom Line:
"Disastrous"

Summary

Impossible to play on PC without pulling your hair out. Incredibly poor performance on new high-end machine. DO NOT BUY without checking that there is a working patch. Already installed the 1.1 and SAME problems with frame rate.

Lots of bugs with keyboard mapping as well. There were a few hours of game play where I just had to give up reloading my weapon manually and let running out of ammo do the auto-reload for you.

As well, load times between levels are completely insane and kill immersion completely.

This has the potential to be a very enjoyable cross between Mass Effect and Call of Duty, but as it stands it's literally an exercise in frustration. Lots of customizations with weapons, looks like it could be very aesthetic to watch, decent voice acting, but none of that matters because it's too frustrating to play.

NEED WORKING PATCH QUICK




Complete rip-off of a PC game, should have stayed console. Doesn't work on PC at all!

1.0

Abysmal
Difficulty:
Very Easy

The Bottom Line:
"Rip-off"

Summary

This is the most disappointing and obvious console port ever!

1) All tips and tricks and menu options are console specific! You see X-box key commands on all menu options!

2) Doesn't even work with mouse and keyboard! This is the most atrocious as it is clear they don't even test the game on PC!

3) FPS and resolution locked at console standard. Resolution isn't adjustable and FPS is low low low even on high end machines.

4) Graphics are muddy and lousy and a FAR CRY from what you see in previews so far.

5) Menu structure is clearly designed for console with unnecessary screens and no ingame options. In fact, it doesn't even come with the standard PC game options.

All in all, this is a rip-off of a console port selling at the price of a full PC game and doesn't even work on PC.
