5/5 stars
awesome

:
The controls are very easy after few minutes and HD visuals looks great on the iPad. The Middle East story is great. Worth the buy!

I'm glad to have the experience to play this game. Almost like iPhone but more polished and more good looking.

3/5 stars
Performance issues

:
The game is overall great, and the visuals are stunning, but there are a few things that need to be addressed before the game is truly enjoyable.

First, there is the fact that there are some instances where the game tries to do way more than the iPad can handle. Take, for instance, the tutorial stage. When you had to cross a bridge on that stage, look down below at the water while you are on the bridge, and you'll notice the framerate goes below the teens. The game still worked fine, but just looking at that spot made all inputs almost unresponsive.

Next, there is the fact that whenever framerate goes down too much, the game tries to compensate in a weird way, and if you use the touch pad control method, then the gun will fire no matter which portion of the screen you are tapping. Does not happen when you are in an area free of any disturbance, but the game is all about those battles with at least 5 enemies on the screen at once, and those moments are exactly when the iPad cannot handle the visuals and go down in flames. In comparison, the iPhone version of this game works fluently and smoothly on the iPad, and is overall a much more enjoyable experience.

Last but not least, performance issues also plague the multiplayer game, and makes it extremely hard for precise actions. I play a lot of PC and console FPS, and have beaten this game on the iPhone 3GS, and in my opinions, though the textures and resolution of the game have been improved to a level that is almost unbelievable, the game also assumed way beyond the iPad's hardware capabilities. I would rather have a smooth game than a game that looks good but stutters and lags every single second I play it. Especially if it is an FPS game.

Therefore, this game only gets a 3-star rating from me for now. Hopefully we see an update soon.
