So I bought this over the weekend based on your review (GOTY edition)...and I adore it. I'm a PC gamer through and through, and games like COD always seem catered to the console generation, far too easy.

I've been after this game for ages, and the $10 Steam deal sealed it for me. The realism is AWESOME, and actually encourages you to work as a team! You quite literally can't run and gun in this game, you have to work as a team, using cover and tactics to reach the objective. The learning curve was steep, but holy shit once you learn it, it is SO much fun, without a doubt the most enjoyable shooter I have played in a LONG time. I also love the fact that you can still positively contribute to the team's score without racking up a mass of kills, which is great because then EVERYONE can enjoy it, not just those with insane killing skills.

Only for the hardcore though, you'll get too frustrated otherwise. Still a few little bugs here and there, but overall and excellent game. There is nothing more satisfying then swarming an office block with your team to capture it.

8/10 from me.
