Gives a good impression of the mission with a short background story and location. The overview picture is the crest of the 25th Marine Regiment, suitable for the theme, but not very interesting.
Shows the target area with scenes of enemy movement. Partly atmospheric, but lacks story and purpose. Primarily displays the poor driving skills that the AI possess.
Offers a clear plan for the mission with essential information. Target markers are clear, but are the only markers. Weapon selection to arm your team is rather extensive. There are plently of AT-launchers and sniper-rifles for everyone, which offers quite a macho approach if the player desires.
The chopper insertion sets the mood with proper dialog and some background gunship action while the players team is dropped to the AO. Loads of action is going on around the player, but with heavy friendly support and low skilled enemies at the targets, the mission feels quite like a walk in the park, with the exception of one twist that ended too soon. After reaching the final target in approximately 20 minutes, the lingering feeling was that the mission setting is great, but balance doesn't feel tweaked enough.
The short outro is slightly better than the intro, but continues to highlight the AI driving skills and poorly set scenes.
The mission is very straight-forward, offering a great insertion and heavy AI ambient action while the player hunts his own targets.
A short, explosive, action filled mission, lacking proper game play balance. Players seeking an eventful walk in the park, should still enjoy this.
