Its a must have...for the sake of saying that you have owned it.

Good graphics and a decent storyline, but once completed it's not that good.

I haven't played the 360 version only the PC one and i've got to say i really don't see the appeal and all the great things that people say about it.

Maybe it's because it's come out so late after the 360 and the interest has faded, I wish in a way that i had my 360 months earlier so that i could have experienced it at the time and got swept up in all the hype and excitement.

It just doesn't play very well, it's slow and often very boring as you can tell when you are going to be attacked as all the cover is placed in such a way that you know there is going to be a fight in that room.

I'm not sure if i have said this here before or somewhere else on the net but it looks like who ever blew up half the buildings in the game, went to the trouble to arrange all the large chunks of stone pillars in such a way that the room would have enough cover at both ends should there ever be a fight fight in there.

I just see it as poor design, sure they want the cover system to be the main combat feature used but they could have been a bit more subtle with cover and blend it in rather than almost perfect blocks everywhere.

not a terrible game but just very average imo.

yes and no.

it`s a fantastic game, but a lot of it was "Liberated" from other games (cover system = rogue trooper)

Played it, seveeeerely overated. You spend half your time with posture like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I've only seen it being played, looked fun and pretty nice though.

Very good, but apparently the PC version is pretty hard to get running well.
