Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

On one hand, this is a fun, attractive, and somewhat challenging game with a couple of interesting mechanics: deformable environments (which means you can blow open walls to create escape routes) and the ability to earn "intel bonuses" for accurate or explosive shots, which can be chained together for additional rewards. Along with the single-player game there are a few multiplayer modes, such as co-op (two Network operatives working together), Deathmatch (every player for himself) and Team Deathmatch (choose a side and the first team to reach the predetermined kill limit wins).

On the flipside, the storytelling fells like a poor excuse to kill virtual people, missions are repetitive and bland, and the artificial intelligence doesn't seem very...intelligent (computer-controlled soldiers will just stand beside a grenade that's about to blow up). It's a $60 game that feels like it ought to have been a budget title. Shooter fans who like over-the-top action might still enjoy it, but they should rent it for a day or two before buying. Note: the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game are the same.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
