Globe and Mail's Chad Sapieha calls EA's new shooter flawed but fun, and criticizes the way it skirts any sort of meaningful commentary. From the review:
"What’s more, developer Danger Close cautiously skirts anything that could be considered even remotely controversial in the game’s story. Rather than tell a tale about a frustratingly fruitless search for a terrorist mastermind, or explicate the difficulties of determining peaceful Afghans from warlike Taliban – and illustrate the consequent civilian death toll – they have instead focused on a fight for a patch of barren rocky land that has no more apparent worth than Hamburger Hill. In fact, simply by invoking that notorious Vietnam War battle I have offered more political commentary on the current conflict in Afghanistan than have the makers of this game."
