    Completely agree with this review. I got the PC version with high hopes, with the fond memories I had from the original. Boy, what a let down. The control feels completely clunky, the enemy AI is excessively accurate, and the squad AI is dumb as dirt. I also felt the campaign was far too short, and did little to show off what strengths the engine had to it's full abilities.

    next time this game comes out will be to trade in at GAME to get MW2 half price.
    enjoyed the play through but the allied AI just completely prohibited me from even bothering with hardcore mode

    I bought this the other week when ASDA had it cheaper and boy what a letdown. The enemy A.I is way to tough for my liking. Even put it onto easy to see if I could get anywhere but it was almost as tough. Visually it is very impressive and the sound is great.

    Where do you draw the line when it comes to fun and enjoyment when it comes to military simulation. I find this so tough that it takes away the enjoyment. Shame really as I had high hopes for it.
