Yes... I do think that way... But I don't go around going "DUDE WTFZZZORZ YUO DONUT HAVE TEH MGS3 YU ARE NUT A MEN!" Besides... I bought HL2 now. So far it has been good (not great)... but some of the stuff is crappy (starship trooper ripoffs and aliens ripoffs, crappiest fire effects ever, etc.).

Well I didn't mean you actually say that... just some people act like it is the best thing ever. If you think it is the best game ever... so be it... but some of you act like HL2 completes you :\.

And yeah kyle.... I really hope they patch the poo-fire soon (doubt that would happen though ).... it looks like water from a PlayStation (1) game.

I think the fire looks a billion times worse than it actually is because of the rest of the graphics :\. MGS3 (yeah yeah... I talk about it too much :\) has some great fire effects and it is a PS2 game.

I think Doom 3 had the best looking fire I've ever seen in a game.

Just to get back on subject for a while, I have just read the review that appeared in the UK PC Gamer mag, and Battle for Middle-Earth got 73%.

They seemed to have focused more on the single player side of things and said that there are some bad AI problems which spoil what could have been a great RTS game. Basically the AI builds one type of unit which then prompts you to build one type of unit to counter and the tactics appart from seige are nearly non-existant.

Non of which is going to stop me buying this game, because I still love playing Generals in multiplayer mode and I am sure this is going to be just as great in multiplayer. May even stop me playing WH40K for a while.
