"Bodycount" is like a summer movie -- quick enjoyment but no long-lasting satisfaction.
This game does nothing to stand out in an overcrowded field of first-person shooters. The guns are not bad, but there are too few of them and you soon discover half of them are not worth using anyway.
The maps are pretty and feature lots of destructible walls and cover locations, but none gives you a sense of place.
Stupid artificial intelligence stands still a lot, so the game goes by fast. Paltry multiplayer offerings don't make the action worth repeating.
"Bodycount" is definitely a "popcorn movie" type of game. Rent it for a weekend, but don't hope for something meaningful.
