If you're looking for CoD or Battlefield, stay away from this title. If you want standard FPS play, stay away from this title. If you want to charge into battle Rambo style, play this game--but not on my team. If you are curious about military service or interested in a serious attempt at simulating combat where wounds are not typically superficial and team-oriented play is a must, this may be the game for you. It's aging a bit now, and the game's community/development has been replaced by that CoD wannabe pretending to be an America's Army game. BUT this is still a great game. If you try it and like it, you might even see if you can get a copy of America's Army 2: Special Forces, as in some respects I think that was a superior version. The AI on it, some of the training, and especially the special forces training section can help anyone improve their FPS game--regardless of what game you regularly play. That being said, it does have limitations in areas that some other pay to play games do better. However, fewer jumpy Halo types to annoy--either because they're too chicken to play games like this or because they have enough sense to adapt their style to this game. That right there makes it worth playing in my opinion.
