It's a lot better than the previous incarnations, the aimings really been fixed and that was my biggest worry.
2 hours and 40 mins in and I'm halfway through the story mode which is a little disapointing, hopefully the later levels get longer like the one I've just done.
A few annoying things like not being able to kill zombies on the ground when you know they are goingto get up as soon as you pass them - this isn't a problem, as I'm currently going through it on easy, but I can see these little things making the higher difficluties become tiresome quickly.
Another thing is the over use of NPC defending and 'OMG your trapped in a room untli you kill 'x' amount of creatures for the 10th time this level' begins to grate after a while. and, like a recent review said, stealth has been included just to say it has been included: a particularly daft bit comes early on where you have to sneak through two empty rooms without being spotted to get to another room. Needless to say this was quite easy because the rooms were EMPTY.
It's pretty funny, I liked the bit where I span a vehicle out in a tunnel and couldn't turn it round. It turned into that bit out of Austin Powers where the same thing happens.
Playing through I kept wishing they'd splashed out an implemented the Havok engine as this would have put the icing on the cake and make the destruction just a little more fun and seem less scripted.
All in all very good so far and I haven't got round to the multi yet.
However if you're thinking of buying it purely for the single player missions I would suggest you rent it as it 'ain't all that'. Return to Castle Wolfenstein did this sort of single player much better a year or so ago.
Good game, short story...
Hard is sufficiently easy to get through, whilst appearing challenging. Arcades and Challenges are ace though, as is the multi-player.
The challenges rock though, and so do the arcade leagues! The one weapon deathmatch with flair guns is ace. Also, zombie monkeys, why did it take so long to happen?!
Could anyone tell me what I need to get my PS2 online? And are there any other decent online games besides TS3? I get free broadband in me next uni accomodation...sweeet! :D

Not on TS3 I don't.
Or any FPS I've played online.
TS2's aiming was unbalanced and I wasn't a fan.
Being able to do the Perfect Dark challenges with more than 1 player (up to 4) was an excellent idea too.
