    I've been playing this game for quite some time now and am amazed at the quality of it. and how open ended the missions are. What does everyone else think about this game?

    Its very good. The flow and pace of the game is all up to you and the toys you get to play with are amazing. Plus the multiple story lines are very well written and flow together nicely.

    This is a great game, I really only have a few complaints.

    1. Siding with the Chinese makes it so you piss of the Russian Mafia. Which sucks.

    2. There was very, very little storyline.

    3. Trees are invulnerable.

    4. If you piss off the Allies, their soldiers will shoot at you. If you shoot back, you get charged for each soldier you kill.

    You can, however, blow the living shit out of everything (except trees)! This is one game where I fully support the use of cheats and the fun you can have with C4.

    Sorry, when I said storyline I meant all the the different missions and routes you can go through the game. Also the fact that a sandbag wall could take a direct hit from a tank and not be fazed but hit a concrete barrier and its gone.

    SUPER UBER LAME.

    you can't invert the controls. makes it unplayable in my book.

    yes. its retarded to NOT put that into a game this day and age.
    whenever i played it, i was running around looking at the ground.

    to me, thats a game breaker.

    But you cant base a greta game on just that, yes for some people it matters, but the great qualities of it just cant be ignored.

    i'm sure that the game had good content, but if it is impossible to play, i can't enjoy that.

    what amazed me even more, was that you could invert LEFT and RIGHT, but not UP and DOWN.

    All i see, is a game that may be great, but they clearly overlooked some of the most basic things.

    I have a question: How often has a PS2 game had inverted controls? The only system I have had experience with that had it was the XBox.

    ahhh i love this game...i play it on my friends xbox

    i am the master at getting atack helis
    u use the armor piercing sniper to shoot the pilots its awesome (you cant buy attack helis)
    my personal favorite is the stealth one cuz it is the most maneuverable of the attack helis

    and that nuclear cannon thing is always fun....:-)

    i also enjoy stacking helis

    try this:

    1. Order several (4-5) large transport helicopter
    2. Order any of the larger tanks
    3. Shoot the pilot out of the huge ass copter (you cant order this one) so it lands on a flat area
    4. Land 2 of the large transport helis on the huge ass helis rotors
    5. Order any number of larger and smaller helis and keep landing them on each others rotors
    6. Plant C4/Use rockets...basically do anything..its just fun blowing them all up

    I'll try that sometime. You can get the MI-5 from the russians for free though. My fav helo is the YAH-56 with 1200 rounds of exploding cannon, 8 anti-vehicle rockets, 4 anti-air rockets, and 36 rockets in pods, plus one badass at the controls= a world of pain

    But that would cheating, and you probably would get bored after a while. Fun for me was doing the ace of spades mission without cheats. Took me forever.

    yeah i know it is

    but i only cheat in that game to have fun. flying around killilng bases....
    and since i dont have it...i dont really do the missions. ive played a few and there fun, but if you can only play it for an hour or two then its more fun to just blow stuff up
