You guys know me and single player games, but I may well give this a whirl too. I have next week off, so maybe it'll fit nicely

It might also push me into my next PC upgrade

ive gone about 10 hours into the game, loved it do far, you are limited on ammo because this is not a first person shooter, its a first person game yes but its not all about shooting, theres a reason why you can complete the game by only killing the 4 bosses in the game.

Anyway ive loved it so far, could barely tare away the other day to go to london to see my fiancee lol. Got tomorrow off to play it more. The key to the game is to learn to be careful with your ammo and only pick fights you can win... Shooting people in the back is also a good idea lol.

P.s. the game doesn't really get going until you get to the first city hub.. before that is just a corridor kind of thing really, after you get shot in the head the game opens up and gets a lot better.

Ah -the old 'getting shot in the back of the head' ploy eh? cunning.

I'm playing Dragon Age myself - picked up very cheap in a steam sale. And in a couple of weeks I'll be playing Red Orchestra 2.

Picked this up and am finding in very similar in gameplay to Batman Arkham Asylum with all the sneaking through vents I'm still near the beginning and already gassed a load of hostages.

lol I forgot about that, yes thats the opening mission, you get more freedom in that but once you get past that mission with the hostages and the final hostage taker the game gives you a bit more freedom, also you dont need to go through the vents, they are just an option. I simply killed everyone i saw in my first playthrough of that mission.

I completed the game fairly quickly, now that I have completed it I can say it was good, the ending though was not a suprise to me and I went through it all fairly easily. The game was good and I am glad I got it, but as I played almost all the side quests and completed most of the special missions I doubt ill be replaying it again soon.
I Am mainly looking forward to Skyrim now.

I've talked with a few people about it and there seems to be a number of different ways to play I'm much more of a stealth gamer than a blow the crap out of everyone gamer.
