One of the ten best video games ever made
21 May 2007 | by hchaisSee all my reviews

This game is great! It is so fun to play. It was never meant to be a hard to beat game. It was made for one reason. For fun. It is a long game. There are many levels. It is just such a fun game. Now, in my opinion, this is one of the ten best video games ever. This is what I think the order goes in my opinion. Mercenaries, Indiana Jones and the emperor's tomb, Grand Theft auto: San Andreas, Call of duty 2, Batman Begins, Jak II, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Star Wars Battlefront II, and then Call of Duty: Big Red One. Now you probably don't agree with me on this, but I think that is how it is. It is a very fun game. There is lots of action and it is just very fun. There is also a very good story. This is one of the best video games ever. 10/10.
