Instant Classic Multiplayer Shooter. Rated M Mostly for frequent profanity

Similar blood as Uncharted 1 (reactions are more realistic tho). 61 F words. Multiplayer has less modes than most shooter on the market now but each is VERY fun to play on the many well made, balanced and varied maps that feel dynamic and open to a variety of playstyles as well as spacey without being overstretched, providing planty of opprutunities for intense squad skirmishes after a vehicle blitzkrieg. And it has FULL Destruction rqther than that "destroy one big building to slightly alter the map in BF4". It may not play or run as fast as its sequels but it will always be my favorite. If you have never played it, get it on PC were people still play it.

Great game for tweens!

I got this game for my son and he loved it. Every time you get shot the screen turns white (not red). No one else says anything about the destruction missions like destroying an enemy base out of a plane! all of vehicles and planes are real types not just made up (good learning aspect). surely a great alternative to other super violent games (order 1886).

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
