whoa! i think you took my post in the wrong way. i'm not even sure what you mean about referencing "people talking out of their asses" - i never said anything like that... i just don't see how you can evaluate gameplay that you have never experienced.

i honestly had no opinion of the *gameplay* before i bought it. i bought it merely because it was the sequel to Q2 which i liked a lot. i would have bought it even if it got nothing but terrible previews/reviews. because i would have had to see for myself...

i expected it to be at least as good as other Raven titles, which are all decent games that i enjoy playing. but i didn't listen to much of the hype. i didn't read any previews. i don't like to go into a game with a lot of preconceived notions (especially comparisons). i mean, i knew it was a continuation of Q2 (which i loved) and i knew it was an FPS (which i enjoy) and that it is developed by Raven (i like other work they have done) and produced by id (i like their work too). so yeah, i guess you can say that i had a good idea what to expect. but i didn't assume any specifics. in fact, the game has turned out to be better than i had anticipated. it's no Katamari Damacy, but it is fun in the same way that a popcorn action movie is fun.

i went to see the Spiderman movie because i liked the X-Men movie. i don't expect them to be the same. i just figure that, hey, i liked one comic book movie - maybe i'll enjoy another one. same with music. i sometimes buy an album just because it is in a genre i enjoy. i often get burned - but at least i took a chance, and sometimes i find new music that i really like.

i'm sure it is possible that someone may think this game plays like Doom 3. but i don't know how. and i don't see how anyone can have an opinion of gameplay based on screenshots. and i think that any reviewer who says this game plays like D3 is full of beans.
