Had a little time to think about it...

Played it for about 2.5 hours last night and had fun, once I got the settings right. It's not anything earth-shattering, but I wasn't really expecting that. id invented the FPS, and they don't seem to be interested in moving much beyond run and gun.

That said, they've definitely got run and gun down to an art form. There is something to be said for a simple, run and gun FPS, and there also seems to be a kind of "id touch" - that is, while the gameplay is in the simple vein, it is more compelling (for me) than, say, Painkiller. And the mods for this game are going to rock.

I'm happy with it. Hopefully that will remain the case as I play through, but I don't see it really letting me down. Bring on HL2, Halo 2 and STALKER!
How happy is the blameless Vestal's lot!
