Haseeb Ali Afzal  "I Think This Game Is Amazing Because Of The Sound Fx And The Music Make This Game A Thoughtful Game.

I Think That This Game Should Have A Sequel With More Levels Like 24 Levels And Multiplayer Mode For Ps3 And Xbox 360. That Should Make My Favorite Game Ever."

Tom Voss  "I Have A Huge Library Of War Games And I Am A Retired Infantry Sergeant. This Game Quickly Has Become My Favorite Due To The Selection Of Weapons And The High Level Of Enemy Intelligence In Attacking Me. I Just Love The Way They Attack So Strongly. It Has A High Degree Of Reality In The Confrontations"

Bryan Jankowski  "I Have Played The Game For Over A Month And A Half. All In All An Awesome Game. First Level Was Easy And They Gradually Got Harder. Now Im On The Last Level On Easy But It Gets Really Difficult. 3 Weeks Later And Im Still Stuck. If Anyone Can Tell Me How To Beat It By The Way My Email Is Aust0912bj@access-k12.org. Honestly Though A Really Nice Game. Could Have More Unlock able Features Like Levels, Characters, And Weaponary."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Leprechaunlive@yahoo.com  "I Agree About The Checkpoints In The Later Levels. The Gameplay Is Great None-the-less. I Think That Critirion (may Be Mispelled) Is On The Right Track. I Like The First-person-shooter View. Kinda Reminds Me Of Doom (played Only Once). I Have Beaten The Game On Normal (working On Hard). Honestly, Now That I Think About It. I Just Don't See The Point In Beating It On Hard Mode. Ohh, So I Get To Play Black Ops Mode. So What. If It's The Same Game Levels As Normal & Hard, I Don't Really Care That Much No More About Beating The Game On Hard. So What About The M16a2. Playing With That Gun Would Get Really Boring, As I, Myself Enjoy Having To Get Health Every Now And Again.

I Guess The Point I'm Trying To Make Is This:
Hey Critirion Developers... How About Making Some Special Levels For The Unlockable, Black Ops Difficulty Stage.

Good News Here:
The Game (being Their First Shoot'em Up Game) Is Actually Really Amazing. Kudos To The Guys & Girls Over There At Critirion (may Be Mispelled). I Really Liked The Fact That You Could Shoot Through The Grate-floors, And Also, You Could Shoot Guys Through Each Individual Hole In The Stair-cases. Sweet Developing!

I Am Looking Forward To See What Else They Have Up-their-sleeves..."

Xtopher.longley@btinternet.com  "Checkpoints Are Not Saved During The Longer Game Levels On All Difficulty Modes. This Is An Annoyance As On Hard Difficulty As Getting Killed Can Take You Back To The Begining If You Cant Finish The Level Or Have To Switch Off Ps2.

All But The First, Levels Are Too Long Without Saves.

The Game Is Repetitive And Only The Difficulty Changes. I Would Like To Have Seen Hidden/different Scenes Of Play For Black Ops Mode."
