According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Intense Violence, Strong Language

Parents should be a little concerned—it's a fairly realistic strategic FPS, full of violence and blood. The subject matter is relatively innocuous, though, with generic multinational commandos hunting down generic multinational terrorists, who don't seem to be fighting for any particular cause or belief. As long as your teens are ready for the blood, there isn't anything morally reprehensible about it.

Xbox Live players should grab this right away—just as Call of Duty 4 is the ultimate arcade shooting experience, this is the ultimate strategic shooter. If you like realistic weapons and a little bit of thought going into your online gaming, you have no excuse for not picking this up.

Fans of the series probably have this already, and if you don't, what are you waiting for? It's an exceptional shooter offering more of everything you loved last time around.

FPS fans in general make sure you're ready for tactical combat. While progressive health has brought back run-and-gun games with a vengeance, this is by no means one of them.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will find the game more difficult, as they'll be missing several vital audio cues, like the clink of a grenade as it lands a few feet away, or the sound of an enemy reloading. All vital information is written onscreen, though, so the game is fully playable, just a little harder than it would have otherwise been.

What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died?

Nothing relevant to this conversation, that's for sure! Because we're here to talk about (sorry, write and read about, respectively) GC_Danny, who's updating this profile for the first time in thirteen years!

So let's take a gander back at that time and see what's happened! In addition to writing hundreds of video game reviews, Dan produced a book that can be legally purchased by almost anyone! He also wrote two short films, two episodes of television, and two movies! Although, sadly, and through much fault of his own, the movies have yet to be released.

In addition to general game reviewing, he's also dabbled in more long-form work, writing some of the longest and most comprehensive game reviews of all time. Then there's his non-GameCritics blogging, where he's famous as the world's foremost expert on the TV show Criminal Minds, as well as the co-host of a weekly podcast - he's even working on a new videogame/critical experiment, which you can find out more about here!

If all that wasn't enough, just a few months ago he rebranded himself as 'The Hidden Object Guru', hoping to stake another claim of ultimate expertise, this time over a genre of casual games! Will he be successful? Only time will tell, but you're free to join the thrilling ride at his YouTube channel!
