Background: I'm a FPS fan, I enjoy some similar game play types such as Unreal Tournaments Assault. This particular game didn't click with me.
I played this game in early 2013 as part of a personal challenge to play some games on my backlog. Naturally I had to play SP with bots as the MP community had mainly moved onto other things years ago. Also as your have to "level up" I didn't want to start as a noob with rude people who would be telling me I was doing it wrong.
The levels are quite fun at first, you can pick what type of character to play, follow the other bots to an objective and either earn it, or death zerg until success. Be prepared to hear about capturing or losing command points a hell of a lot. You could be about to win the level, then the enemy AI take one of your command points and the AI on your team decide to go get their revenge.
The movement to the game is kinda fun, but really its just a gimmick. In battle you'll either kill the guy or get killed, its not about fancy movement and gunplay at the same time.
The game has 2 sides, each map lets you play the story from either side, but really, does anyone care what the story is about, why the are getting wound up? The third time you have heard the bots talking about "WE HAVE TAKEN THEIR COMMAND POST" you have forgotten what or why you were doing. You just know you have to get closer and press and action key to win the objective.
Overall the game wasn't fun enough. Apart from going back to get some more achievements I won't be going back to this.
Things that annoy me:
I don't want a choice of voice actors
One of the maps was impossible to win at the normal difficulty. Partly as the bots never teamed up with me. I dropped the difficulty and got through the map flawlessly.
Lots of focus on things that I'm just not interested in.
The bots dialogue
The bots, both friendly and enemy are the main reason you'll want to quit.
