The game modes criticism seems very... odd.

Also, the 300-word limit doesn't work for this review - the first paragraph tells me nothing and this wouldn't help inform my buying decision.

Your criticism of the criticism is also very odd.

Whats wrong with the opening paragraph? Its tells you what the guy thinks and lets you know of its close links to call of duty.

Interesting read. Can't wait to play this.

How does it look, though? Isn't this supposed to be the first big third party post launch game? I want to know if it's been cleaned up since the beta at all and of it looks better than other current gen games. Also, Is net code stable? Does it work to make you play as a team? Hoping this promotes more team spirit than COD.

Nice read Mr Burns. I'm not getting this at launch (for multiple reasons), but if I have some extra cash next month near the time I get my new PC, I'll definitely will be picking this up for PC.

On an some-what related note, will VG get round to doing an revised review of the 360 version when it comes out later in the month? I'm interested in the differences.

Seriously dude! i think its time to get over the issue of 300 words not being enough, it seem like its here to stay and in my opinion it does just fine, if you need a more in depth view the internet is your oyster. It seem that you have become quite the negative sole of late neon-soldier

Really? How come? (To the negative soul part)

The 300 word count does work for some reviews - mobile, indie etc. But for this review it didn't. Too much time was spent waffling about how it isn't gimmicky, how it's not quite CoD. I mean, this is 2014, we know how a FPS works by now, so there's no need to waste the word count about going ADS in a 300 word - or any - review. Instead it could have elaborated a little more on the 'campaign' element, or how much teamwork matters etc.

For me the opening paragraph could be condensed down to, 'It feels like a mod that improves CoD's multiplayer.


Also, did VG base it's review on playtime on private servers as other websites did?
