Fun and creative multiplayer modes.
Looks pretty good.
X-ray kill cam is cool.
A pinpoint shot over long distance is immensely satisfying.
Delightfully gory kill animations.
Nice array of explosive traps.
Tense competitive multiplayer.
Linear single-player campaign.
Audio tech issues.
Bad checkpoint system.
Enemy AI can be transparently dumb.
Unnatural enemy spawning.
Can feel like you are exploiting rather than outmaneuvering your foe.
