The game looks like it is straight out of the late 90's. The first thing I thought of was, had I actually started Black Hawk Down by mistake? But no, I had started a newly created game. Something just seems really off about the look of the game, given that it is a new game. No amount of anti-aliasing could cut down on the pixelation. There was also a noticeable difference between the character features that appeared in your HUD, compared to everyone else around you.
The limited voice acting is par for the course. The actual sound effects are not very fulfilling, however. I never expect a sweeping soundscape from war. In fact, all things being equal, if it were "realistic," all war games would sound identical and we would all be deaf.
