I'm only through the first 3 missions, so I don't have enough to make a full judgement, but here are some things I like/don't like so far:
-The mechanics/engine. The controls are good, and shooting works really well. The buttons are only slightly different from other FPS's, which is a good thing.
- Gun selection. Already I've used several guns, and they've all had good pros/cons.
-Achievement pace. I've gotten some achievements for story, some for other things. It seems like one pops about every 20 minutes or so.
-Visuals. The colors are very vibrant and the enemies contrast with teammates.
-Health. There's not a good indication of when you are about to die. Sure it gives you some red border, but it's not enough to tell that you are in critical condition.
-Grenades. You can't tell where they are. Having a guy yell "Grenade!" does nothing, just makes you panic for a second.
-Destructible Environments. Not that I'm against the idea, but it's frustrating when you can't find any cover because the enemies just blow it away immediately.
-Lack of coop. You play in a squad with 3 other guys. Why can't these be real people?
I've heard that the real appeal to this game is the multiplayer, but I just don't see myself getting into that. This could be a game I trade very quickly.
