     -This game has some limitations, but it is just pure, raw FUN

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The storyline is basically REVENGE. But like a good action flick who really cares about a story when you can airdrop tanks    

                       

 

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10
