I know these games nowadays are all about the multiplayer aspect, but good god I cannot stand these linear style campaigns. I realize each mission needs a beginning and end, but it's how you get to the end that makes or breaks a campaign. Does anyone remember the old SOCOM single players? Those were great. You get to choose your guns based on how you want to play the mission (sniper, assault, heavy machine gun, etc.), then they insert you into the AO, then they basically let you accomplish the mission however you want with a little direction just so you don't get lost. Finally you make it to an extraction point where a truck/helicopter/boat picks you up. Rinse and repeat. Sometimes you even needed to escort hostages or VIPs to the extraction point.
No unrealistic car chase scenes or snowmobile scenes. No raping everyone in sight with a helicopter or gunship. Just a humvee every once and a while and the good 'ole 50. cal turret.
Maybe Im just expecting too much from SP in games that are clearly only created to play MP.
Thats probably why Ill buy ACIII instead of MoH or CoD.
Sorry just needed to vent my frustrations
