Wait for a patch or 4 seems to be the way to go for this game. Bloodlines does indeed seem to be a direct sister of this game.

If a patch or two doesn't come along to fix some of the rather obvious issues with this game, it should drop in price rather quickly. I'd wait a while.

I bought it because I love Obsidian and have liked many games in the past with technical issues cited in reviews.

Installing now, I'll post comments later.

Freaking awesome. Problem is... Narc likes some bad games sometimes . He even defends Velvet Assassin... yuck.

Watching some guy on justin.tv playing it and he refuses to answer any questions I have .

You guys are review slaves.

Bad news though: no in-game AA and forcing it through nHancer screws up the dialogue HUD.

I can deal with that... is the aiming as bad as it seemed? That is the main thing keeping me away from this game.

Well I can say right now after only an hour or so that this is an awesome, awesome game buried underneath mounds of buggy, unpolished technical stuff. Pretty much what one would expect from Obsidian. If you are the type who could love a buggy unpolished game for it's core gameplay and story, grab this up. If not, stay away.

As for what kind of game it is, think Splinter Cell: The RPG.

The aiming is exactly like Deus Ex. Exactly.

Well that sucks... I will wait until Steam has a deal on it which shouldn't take too long since I have only heard bad things mostly.
