  1. I looked forward to this game and pre-ordered it as many of us did. Played a few levels and had to check out the multiplyer mode. Have to say I was VERY disappointed. The graphics look very boxy and reminded me of the first Doom, especially the map with the grass lawn and dummies standing around (WTF)…the grass looked so artificial and the mannequins (sorry…civilians)looked so out of place…if they really wanted to have people there they should have made them more realistic and have them move around but I guess that would be asking too much given the fact that the players faces look amazingly pixelized. But I guess the biggest disappointment was the sound effects..and I mean ALL sound effects. Cobra attack helis are as quiet as cobra snakes and you can hardly hear them when they are around…end of game sounds are really lame and lack drama.
