Talking What you guys waiting for?????

This game is nothing short of SICK. The share amount of killing moves you can pull of and the ways that you pull them off are just off the hook. The menu system is also a very nice touch, hell you can even unlock lots of extra content like a ingame video interview of vin, xbit, that hauser dude that played johns in pitch black, and the game developers. The graphics are also a nice touch as well as they pretty much rival any of the bes games out right now and the company star breeze is using ther own engine. Anyone still sitting on the fence about this one should read the gamespot review they gave it a 9.3, half life got a 9.2 and doom3 a 8.5....The only word of warning about this game is that there is alot of foul language in this game and the way people are killed is very graphic, hence the reason it's rated 17+..Anyone else still thinking after reading the gamesot article should check out the long ass thread at rage3d about this game that has over 7000 views in 3 days.

Alright.....am I missing something??? Up untill tonight I've loved this game then it took a nose dive to "stupid as all hell"
What is this crap about having to fight room after room of *heavily* armed emenies (including mecs) with a club and fists???? Is this supposed to be fun?? Stealth has nothing to do with....there is no way to use it??? It just rooms and halls with a few boxes and a **** load of enemies wth assult rifles (and mecs)...I'm armed to the teeth with a club???.....I don't get it, this could have been one of the best games and it totally flushed itself with this degradation into bogus game play.....

What a dissapointment...it should have stayed on consol .....

Does this game have a physics engine? How about ragdolls? I'm thinking of picking this one up tommorrow.

In the start of the game you have no weapons except some melee weapons you get from the presoners BECAUSE the weapons need a DNA match to be able to use them . in the upcoming events you'll be able to enjoy the weapons at thier full potential .. you just need to wait a little buddy .

Sadly the physics demonstration in this game is very poor . actaully i dont think there are physics at all .. hmm well maybe some scripted ones & some ragdolls when you drag dead bodies .. not quite sure about that .

I've already gotten way past the Prison mainframe...where I got DNA encoded to use weapons...I'm in the "mines" where you can't fart or a turret will shot you or a guard will shake you down...not to mention I can no longer pick up (shootable)weapons anyway ....I hate to say it but it just ruined the entire game for me. Stealth play is onething, intentional ridiculousness is another.

And there are no in-game physics

Yo Pain, you need to sneak around, soon you will find a very nifty little gun, tho it dosent kill in it self, but guards are easy enugh to kill once they are down. You'll stun those mecs too but you can not kill them, not yet. You'll get your revenge. So for now you have to use your stealth, You dont have to kill guards unless they really are in your way. Trust me, it's well worth it
