Well I can get two headshots about as fast as mark & execute and I prefer to do it myself... 3 or more it's a real advantage, but then it also feels too easy. I beat the game on realistic without ever using it more than twice and it was already an easy game...

So I finally tried Deniable Ops tonight... it was fun! I did not realize that it was all-new maps, I assumed it was pieces of the single-player campaign. Now that I know they are all-new, and sort of linear like a normal level, I think I will play through them all like a new campaign... finished the first "town" tonight and it was easily the length of a level from the campaign.

Anyone who wants to try co-op my name on Uplay is the same as here.

Last I checked she hasn't signed on for like 140 days, lol.

Still looking for a game she likes since Peggle.

Did anyone else notice that the FPS is capped at 30 in multiplayer?

Besides it's just not fun to just press a button and wait for the kills. That's lame, that's console style.
on RROD_Box720 there will be a deadmen switch on a controller labeled PLAY, you just have to keep holding the button, and game will do everything

People bragging about owning in Single player games make me laugh. Mark and execute was a great feature and I used it whenever possible, though I have no doubt I could have finished it without it. I thought it was going to be lame, but it's actually somewhat balanced and purely optional.

Tearing through the "deniable ops" mode on realistic today... fun stuff! I think all the deniable ops levels added together is longer than the campaign mode.

Is their any tweaks to get more fps? I am kinda surprised a 5870 is struggling with this game. I have 2xAA/8xAF and fps is around 30-35 sometimes 20's....but the graphics...are not that special. I have soft shadows on med i think...

Graphics look ok...some nice mixed in with some horrible..
