Finally finished this game last night.

Decent clone of Vegas1 but nothing more. Simplistic action game with very limited and setup tactics.

Man, I long for the Rogue Spear days (RIP) with planning, multiple squads, excellent squad control and cover system.

So I grabbed this off of Steam for $15 yesterday, here's what I think.

The game has been out for quite a while now . . . and it's had months to be patched and improved upon. But NO. I'm a little disappointed to say the least. For example:

* If I'm looking around a corner and tell my team to stack up, they can't move anywhere unless I stop looking around the corner. WTF?
* Why don't my teammates listen to me when I tell them to go somewhere? They just sit there until I tell them 5 times. WTF?
* No AA/AF?

Performance is great and I like tactical games like this, but geez. A little disappointing.

Are there still online players? If not, I'll save my $15.

I play whenever i feel like it. There are constantly rooms with players so you won't have any problem finding one. Just keep your expectations low as most of the time you'll see around 80-100 players online

Vegas 2 definitely has AA working up to 8xAA.

I too miss the Raven Shield/Rogue Spear days.

AA is in the video options, ranging from quality level 1 to 8.

Also, yeah ubisoft has had such a long time to patch this game up, but they've proven that they really don't care anymore and have moved on. Theres 100+ page thread at ubisoft forums where users are trying to talk to ubisoft, but ubisoft still has not responded.
