Review: America's Army: Rise of a soldier (Xbox)

Ok, so I just got America's Army: Rise of a soldier from my friend the other day. I have only played though about half of the game and all I can say is that I am impressed. The graphics are what you would expect for a Xbox game. The only thing I didn't like was when the guys talk their body's move but there lips don't, not huge, just looks kinda weird. The sounds from the game are one of it's best assets, all the guns have there own unique sounds. You can tell what the enemy is shooting at you with just based on the sound of the gun. The gameplay is very fun. It's mainly team based, cause it's made by the army. But some times you are on your own. There are only two things I find wrong with this game. One the training you have to do is boring and kinda tedious. The other is that there is not to many missions to play. Once you have beaten the game you are left with the multiplayer. Which I have tried and it wasn't too bad. There just wasn't a whole lot of games to choose from and the ones that were there were hard to play in just because of the talent level of the other gamers.

Overall: 7 out of 10
Gameplay(cause that all that matters in my book) 9 out of 10
