This game looks decent from the screen shots. If its as good as a gory mindless shooter like Painkiller it'd be worth a buy IMO.

Any real show stoppers at all?

The game is also not consistent. Sometimes a guy is right in front of you and bullets don't seem to do anything. Sometimes shooting with the sniper rifle does nothing no matter how many times you fire. Take out the pistol for the same shot and it's a one hit kill. This game verges on funny/terrible. And funny was not in a good way.
Voice acting, you know that can really ruin a game for me. I recall FarCry annoying me to the point I wanted to remove the bad guys sound files or something. Might grab this today anyways.

"Hey you, in the shirt!" and "I'm gonna shoot you in the face!"

Oh man, don't remind me.

Anyway, back on topic, I could see me playing this once and having fun with it except it only runs at about 14-26 FPS as far as I played through the first 2 levels. That is not enough for me. If they had just slapped a couple video options in it so I could disable the blur and bloom crap, maybe I could get it playable, but for now it goes into my growing stack of games I can't play until I upgrade along with Crysis, Bioshock, The Witcher, etc, etc.

Multiplayer needs improvement. There's no chat and no mapcycle.

These quotes from a Gamespy review sum it up nicely.

Quote:
Payback puts you in the role of a mercenary who you don't care about who's double-crossed by an organization that you don't care about during a mission that you don't care about. The plot is so generic that it could have been bought off of the shelf at Wal-Mart, and the voice actors deliver their lines with all the urgency of the guy at a drive-thru reading back your order to you.
Quote:
Another nice feature is the way that the game defaults to "no" when it asks you if you want to restart from the last checkpoint. It's as if it's trying to save you from itself.
Quote:
As bad as the level design is, the enemy AI is even worse. Your ethnically ambiguous insurgent terrorist enemies fight like British Redcoats in the Revolutionary War.
LOL
