I wanted to buy this game really badly when it came out, but decided to rent it first. my first hour of playing it was extremely fun. As I progressed in the game longer, I found that somethings that could have made it a lot better, but it didnt have. After I beat the game, I was pondering weather or not to buy this game. i did. This is not a bad game in any way at all, but EA did not create what we all thought it would be. if you liked the first game, this is something completely different, but fun. the features are great and easy to catch onto like finding free oil, bombs and cash, though i did get annoyed trying to find oil tanks I could steal without getting a faction pissed off at me. The game is exciting and fun begining to end and I highly suggest it to intense shooter game lovers, just rent it first to see if you think its worth it.
