I don't feel ashamed for buying a game I really enjoy playing, no.

From the videos i've seen it looks kinda crappy,character animations doesn't exactly look realistic,everything about it just looks old but from what i've read the gameplay is solid.Sad in a way,if these guys had the same artistic skills as bioware this could have been special but now i find it hard to motivate a purchase,it looks horribly dated.

Haha, it does look dated, but it has some nice effects, runs really well and is a fun game.

I'm playing Recruit on normal. I do have to empty a clip at a guy to get him, but it makes sense seeing as I'm a green as can be recruit and I suck at everything.

This game is too close to real life. Trust Obsidian to make a real life simulator. FML.

Make sure you hold your shot and shoot when the target thing is small. Even when under fire it is best to do this.

Side note: I love how these RPGs all have women who like to be treated like crap. Very true to life.

Oh, I only just started playing, and as stated I'm a recruit, I haven't been patient enough to let it aim properly. Still, the guy I'm playing is a crazy blind fire pistol type guy. He's a bit on a knob, but means well. Basically I'm playing as Mr. Hunt crossed with Bearclaw.

K, been playing this all day, I gotta say, I'm having a blast. The first mission I was like FFS! but once I slowed down, put points in stealth and pistol, I found how I'm really meant to play the game. Sure stealth makes it way easy, but I'm not really using it. I'm using cover and the ability to aim the pistol from cover, which is really cool. I'm guessing it's something the people who complain abut the aiming miss. With a pistol you can take aim from cover, pop out then execute, with a silencer it's an easy stealth kill. On top of the the chain fire mode is devastating. Think SC: C's execute, where you tag bad guys.

Velvet is 100% right with this game. It's great fun if you like RPGs like Deus Ex. It really borrows from both Deus Ex 1 (skills, choice) and Dues Ex 2 (hub system and power system) then throws in a little Risen with some intentionally and unintentionally hilarious dialogue. I know the game wont be for everyone, so I hope they release a demo, despite the reviews I know a lot of gamers will like this title.
