Hay guys, been playing it for about 40 minutes, finished campaign mode and had a look around skirmish mode.

Initial impression is that this is a well presented and good fun game but there are some teething troubles. Most notably there isn't a tutorial, only a threadbare 'how to play' which doesn't really teach you how to control or play the game.

The post-mission screens whereby you choose which weapons you want to take to the next mission aren't very informative and its not initially clear that you have to select a new weapon type - I thought my game had crashed as the load bar wasn't moving - when in actual fact it was waiting for me to choose a new weapon.

While the combat is fun and its kind of strategic in that you have to think about which type of solider would be best suited to the current battle - it can get a bit repetitive.

I image once the devs receive more feedback on weapon weighting and there are a few UI tweaks (like a button that takes you straight to the frontline) we'll have a very cool and enjoyable game. Right now I would say its not quite living up to the hype the devs created.
