I heard this was a good game so I got it and yaaaaaay. I beat the first mission on Xbox. It wasn't as great as i thought it would be but pretty fun to command ur troops and be dieter, the sniper. I read the book and it inspired me to play the game.
If you really want to command troops, Get Battlefield 2 with the Special Forces Expansion, Then youll actually command troops online.
One of the scene I've always tried recreating is surrounding the enemy with helicopters armed with snipers, Troop Transport and Tank Blockades. But too back its not easy to achieve.
