This is a fun FPS that is reminiscent of the Battlefield franchise (though not as good)
Pros:
- Good variety of weapons and equipment
- A nice selection of drivable and flyable vehicles
- Campaign is fun and engaging with multiple mission types
- In most mission you get backup and don't have to run it solo
- The AI is acceptable

Cons:
- Campaign is too short
- Online future doesn't work anymore
- Compatibility issues
- Story is generic and hollow



Also, don't forget about the bonus mission that you can unlock in game!

Just plain fun
Simplistic mission designs (taking points, eliminating all enemies, destroying specific spots)
Various controllable drones

The Bad:
Short (4-5 hours)
Inaccurate weapons
Enemies are bullet sponges
Can't use enemy's weaponry
