    Yo man this game is amazing, so fun and for a PS2 game it has really nice graphics. Although its not a SOCOM II killer its still a game worth checking out. It is much better than Rainbow Six 3 for the PS2 because this ga... Read Full Review

    Ugh, this game is boring.

    This game is rough. Rough in every sense of the word. The control is horrible. The gameplay is broken. The online is iffy at best, and the graphics are just average. For a game that has had some hype coming up to it... Read Full Review

    Underated. Great Game.

    The gameplay in this is pretty basic but fun. You pretty much hold on the R1 button to auto aim and square to shoot. To Control your character its a little awkard at first but you get used to it. There is a cool characte... Read Full Review

    First off, 6.5 is just not fair. This game is like a military RPG in a lot of ways, the only way it is not like an RPG is that you don't have traditional stats. You create a character with a unique name, down to the ... Read Full Review
