I'll start off by saying this game really is not as terrible as people try to make it out to be simply because the box doesn't have the most popular shooter franchises on the front of it. Regardless, that doesn't mean it is necessarily a ground breaking must-buy shooter either. For the price it is now (around $20) it is worth the play through, even if you don't have an online gaming service such as xbox live. Content wise, there's not much to worry about aside from language and violence - characteristic of the first person shooter category. Words such as f*** are used in heated situations and there is the frequent shooting of other humans, but never ones that don't pose a threat to your character. The killing itself isn't portrayed in a gory way or extremely bloody in any means, and I would be willing to say it is less bloody or gory than call of duty, and around the level of battlefield 3. But, the story does feature a few intense moments in which, if the story has done its job and has established an emotional connection with your character and those around them, will tug your heart strings (I don't want to spoil the story or anything but consider it the rather unfortunate death of a much loved comrade). What truly motivates me to give this game a 4 out of 5 would be the cause and effect no other game i've played has featured. It displays the cause of war and violence, but also the effect on everyone in it. It shows the heart breaking loss... the fear of what could come out of this terrorist movement... the effect on a man's family and kids from being away for so long... It brings a meaning to the game, rather than simply blockbuster glorified kill this terrorist to save the world from a possible nuclear bomb because if you don't it will explode... and will kill people that you will never meet or know like every other game. So, for that, along with top notch graphics (the same or better than battlefield 3), with competitive multiplayer on par with other games of the genre and a unique story line, this game is worth a look.
