Meh I didnt like it.
I liked the 1st MOHAA games and COD alot more that MOHPA!
Yeah it runs great at 1200X1024 with 4x Af of but the game play just isnt as good as Cod.

Good...
Loved the out of focus effect when you fire the fixed MG.
Also the color fade effect when you get hit.
Great sound. Very Chaotic battles. Lots of character.
weapons very realistic.

Bad...
Can't find a way to turn on 5.1 surround.
Too many damn keys! Arrow keys for squad command? anything that takes my hand too far from the wasd or mouse is bad.
The bit with the MG shooting down all those planes is unrealistic.
The medic bit is way too slow. Could get annoying.
Doesn't like overclocking on my 6800gt. Get texture smearing (same with Halo)

If your name happens to be "Tommy" you're gonna love this game!

Downloaded it in 18min, played it, definately gonna get it. The bleed option is great, makes the game much more realistic. Get stabbed, you'll sit there and lose health like crazy until you bandage yourself or call the corpsman. Much better in the squad tactics and controls than CoD, which was partially a turn-off in CoD with me, since it had that "one man vs the world" feel with programmed AI backup. Here you actually need to issue orders to get the jobs done (unless your name is Rambo). Getting sliced in the chest by a crazy sword wielding jap made my day

Oh, and yes I agree, the mouse lag was awful. I've been playing at 1280x1024 2x/4x with acceptable framerates.

i beat it, pretty good although way to short... the mouse lag is terrible, makes it really hard to aim. my fps were good for the most part... although it did have a tendency to dip at times 1600x1200 2x/4x

The Demo keep crashing on my system after a few minutes of play. I've installed it on a fresh WinXP SP2 partition. Yeah, my system is not top-notch but since I can play all the other games at reasonable speed and without a glitch, one wonders why this one should be different.

After hours of jungle fighting with Far Cry, this title does not seem that impressive. The gameplay also does not seems rock solid like MoH and CoD.

I'll put my faith in the CoD expansion.
