Concept: Ambitious first-person shooter with the substance to live up to the four years of hype pending its release
Graphics: Guerrilla Games used the power of the PlayStation 3 to deliver a visual tour-de-force, best graphics yet seen on a console.
Sound: Extremely well done. Music is grand and well-placed throughout, and each weapon sounds distinct and fierce.
Playability: The controls have a slight learning curve when transitioning from other shooters, but the result is its own feel rather than frustration.
Entertainment: Intense single-player campaign, addictive competitive multiplayer. A co-op mode would have been a welcome addition, but I can't complain with the amount of content already in place.
Replay Value: The addictive multiplayer mode and dozens of "Trophies" will keep players hooked long after the campaign ends
