I found this game to be very entertaining. The main thing that struck me at first after the awkward beginning sequence was that the graphics looked great. the trees seemed like trees and the water seemed like water. weapons shoot and sound accurate. however the stealth mode was not even close or necessary. bad guys have the ability to hear like super man and see through trees and flora and fauna. driving is very awkward and firing weapons from vehicles is hary carey. i would have to say the ai is too good, but that is a good thing. nothing funner than outsmarting the computer. the only thing about this game i dont like is that controlling the vehicles is soooo difficult. and they have cool vehicles like a boat with a freakin rocket launcher. this is another excellent game that almost had it. if it werent for the superman ai and the sucky vehicle control it would have been good, if not perfect.
I've played many games and this one isn't too bad. It takes 6 discs to load. It takes forever to get to the last level. Gets a little boring after a while. I would definately get it for this price.
