If you want a game with a significant re-play value, game where every achievement feels like a hard earned award, game that forces you to be disciplined team player than look no further. Pop your head up for longer than a second and and be sure that headshot will find you very quickly, give up your location by making unnecessary noises and and see enemy grenade appearing right next to you, make more than two shots from the same position and become an easy target for the sniper. Make any mistake and you are dead. Sometimes you don't even have to do anything wrong, it's just an artillery, or friendly shot that will end your virtual life. Being a soldier here sucks! Your life expectancy on the battlefield is usually measured in seconds and every time you are killed you have to wait for the next waive of reinforcements to re-spawn and then run towards the battlefield ... just to die again and again. Sometimes it is so frustrating that I can't play for more than 10 minutes before I rage quit but I always keep coming back and this is how this game makes up for average graphics and clunky movements - replay value.
