Well, I did actually buy the game thinking it was innovative... sorry if it bored me and made me feel like I wasted $50 and thought I'd share my opinion. Thought I'd save others the wasted money if they think they may feel the same as me.
Now, I do like innovation in my shooters. And I like innovation in my RPGs. I think FEAR rocks and I think BF series/UT is great. They each add their own thing. But somethings that can be added just don't make the genre more fun... at least not for me. I felt it took away from the game.
