I too hate how reviewers deduct points for no online play. Its truly retarted as the developers don't have that option yet.
The controls look good. Turning is slightly slower than CoD3, which I think is better (less spinning out of control) plus, 180 quick turns, and grenade throwing. Although it has been rated 0.7 worse than CoD3 on IGN, I think it will be better. Matt of IGN has been a bit mean lately, I'm gunna pick this game up.
