Awesome Game for anyone who likes action
on 23 May 2007
This is one of the most enjoyable games ive ever played. Seriously.
The story is actually very interesting for a game of its caliber, with good twists in it like any horror film should. Speaking of horror... I almost died playing this game. I may be a wimp, but im pretty sure it would give even the hardest of people shudders down the spine. The Girl that follows you through this game is Horrible (in a very good way). This game actually makes you want to stop playing, but keep playing at the same time.
As for the Graphics, they are awesome! You need a fairly decent PC. But Most PC's should handle it on one of the default settings. The dust and sparks that fill a room when you get into a fire fight are extremely impressive, as is the light refraction that some of the enemys use.
The AI In this game is unrivaled (I could be wrong, but i havnt seen anything like this). They think about how to flank the player, communicate, interact with objects in game like sweeping lamps, books, PC monitors off of a desk to get a clear shot at the player and Pushing over filing cabinits over to block doorways (I have actually had an enemy push a cabinit over onto my head...). Extremely cool reactions when you suprise them, for example if you nail one of their friends heads to the wall you hear a "Oh F***!!!" Over the radio!
Up until "Dark Messiah: Might and Magic" came out, this game was the most physically impressive game in my opinion, You can see your own feet and when you Melee, you actually see your whole body do the actions. Its Very cool!
Even if your a wimp i recommend this as a long term challenge for your self, If you do think of yourself as a toughie... Give it a go and you'll see what i mean :p
Overall, Awesome Game, Get it now.
