Overall: I gave this a 4 because I think it passes for really realistic but this game doesn't have enough in it for weapons and missions for each class but there is alot here but not as much as I want. I am however very demanding when it comes to dropping $50 on a game. This game does however rate alot more realistic than alot of the other army games except for Socom 3 maybe but even this game has some things in it that all other games could use.
Gameplay: This game is sort of like an RPG in that you level your guy up by earning experience for doing good in missions and in training and you get your rank up so you can become different classes. You also get skill points in which you can use to add to around 8 skills. Now the skills are actually unique to this game since there isn't strength or nothing like that it's all military related so expect to see leadership, honor, condition, etc. Now in this game you actually have to train for every class you want to be. That is after you qualify for them. You start out as rifleman and work your way up to Grenadier than auto rifleman than sniper and so on. You have to go through at least 1 training mission for each class and there are a total of 7 classes and 5 missions for each class but note that some classes the missions are training. There isn't no 20 weapons or nothing like that. There are not alot of weapons but hey the weapons they give you are good. They all really need to use their sighting system to aim accurately since no crosshairs in this game bud. I found that all the guns I have fired are easy to aim. Even the M203 is easy to aim but it takes a little while to get used to. The grenades I find a little harder to get used to but they do work good once you're used to them. To sum up the gameplay I have to say that I give it an awesome rating but it could be better by adding more modifications and weapons but hey still a good set to pick from.
Graphics: This game looks realistic and the explosions look really real. The sights on the weapons are great to aim since they look realistic and work like real life. The one thing I do not like about the graphics is the mouth of the people who talk doesn't move. The buildings and tree and vehicles all look highly detailed. I have yet to find any flaws besides the talking in the graphics.
Sound: Now the sounds I notice are awesome since when you are fighting you here comments about what is going on and even better the guns actually sound realistic in my opinion. Now what I think is neat is how when you crawl around for sniper training you can hear the guys talk to themselves and it's actually realistic because who doesn't talk to themselves when they are trying to find someone who you know is trying to sneak around? Overall I didn't noticed any music because this game pulls you in.
