My favorite part is when you're in cover behind a window, go to peek out and there's a friendly AI in cover on the opposite side of your window, staring at you with his back to the enemy. You shoot him in the face because he's a danger to yourself and your team, and he doesn't flinch while the game shouts "Hey, that's a friendly!" No, that's an idiot. There's a difference.

I lol'ed.

"Campaign" is a stretch anyways. Think BF2 single player. It's the MP levels with bots and voice-over intros for stories.

The enemy AI actually really isn't that bad, the friendly AI is the real problem, consistently getting in your way while they all make a B line to whatever window/door/corner you happen to be looking out from so that they can stand in your way.

The MP can be fun, and very atmospheric, but this is a title I should have waited 6 months on before buying.
