The graphics are very good
indeed, massive area full with mountains, buildings, people. With
no slow downs, its very smooth and there are always real-time
battles going on allover the place. The people look good but not
perfect, vehicles and buildings are good detail but the most amazing
thing is when you up stuff from cars with rockets and grenades,
helicopters with anti-air rockets and big huge buildings can be
wiped out by air-strikes. using the havoc physic engine on all
vehicles and also buildings too, rumble goes everywhere, dust
clouds covers the area, big explosions and all looks amazing.
Car sounds, gun firing and bomb explosions all sound great, music
is very good, sounds similar to freedom fighters plus some of
the music is like star wars too as Pandemic Studios, the developers
is part of LucasArts. Voice Acting is pretty good too.
Controls are very good and are easy to use. You can control
over 20 authentic vehicles including helicopters, trucks and tanks,
the controls could of been improved a bit more for them as the
vehicles are very sensitive and helicopters do turn very slow.
You use air-strikes and other equipment by selecting with the
up or down directions that you pay for with your hard-earn cash.
The gameplay involved lots of different missions, any
number of vehicles can be high jacked, there are over 30 real-world
military weapons that you can use that you can only hold 2 at
a time, there's no pistols which is a bit sad as it would help
to have a 3rd small weapon. Completing missions will unlock more
new vehicles and weaponry in the shop and unlock new bonus missions
that are specific to each faction. When you use the horn you can
get allies to get in the car with you so they can use guns of
top and help in shoot outs.
The reply value is very high as it takes weeks if not
months to complete plus 3 characters to use, a second outfit to
get for each and a 2 area go to halfway thought the game and both
are filled with hidden items that gives you more to buy in the
