Pro Fantastic use of multiple fighting mechanics
The player can couple the fighting mechanics of the game in order to feel powerful and like a "bad ass". You can shoot an enemies legs, to then run up to them to then kick their legs out from under them, to then knife them to death while they are down. This interesting combination of tactics allows for the player to feel powerful as well as makes for an fun to play game that balances ammo against hand to hand fighting maneuvers.
Con Limiited in movement
Unlike later games in the series, in 4 you cannot move while you shoot. Some people may enjoy this control scheme, while others may hate it. One thing is for sure, it is limiting if you consider this game a third person shooter.
