Fun game, actually a nice variety of missions. All scripted and directed "do this, go there" type stuff, but fun. Still mainly stealth based. A lot of eye candy, the game looks like a tech showpiece almost. The headshots just don't get old. Even got the slo-mo cam with a headshot on an ox once. LOL

a few great sniper missions mixed with a ton of action shooter... 2 is said to correct that and have more sniper missions.

(IMO, you wouldn't like it.)

I'd echo Magum's view on the game. Also knowing the little i do about your taste i think it'd be too 'actiony' for you.

It's not bad, multiplayer ends up being run-n-gun more often than not but hopefully part 2 will be more sneak-n-shoot, early on the compass would give player positions away unfairly but if you can find a server that isn't using it it's much better.

Yeah, I was afraid of that. If I hated Operation Flashpoint Red River, I'd probably hate this.

There's a demo out there, it pretty much covers how the game goes. It's not deep, just simple shooter fun. The full game doesn't promise more than you'd see in the demo.

I agree. I bought the PC version and then the PS3 one. It's a fun game!

It wasn't a game I particularly liked. Too much generic action shooter bits, not enough good sniper bits.


I refuse to buy a flight sim that I have no interest in playing, on the off chance that MAYBE someday they'll make the one I really want to play.
