64 bit Crysis ran a bit better than the 32 version.

I liked Oblivion for the first 8 hours and then it fizzled out with cookie-cutter dungeons and too easy combat. I'm playing Fallout 3 now and enjoying it, but I wonder if 8 hours of gameplay later, it will end up too easy and generic like Oblivion ultimately was. Just saying that first impressions of a game arent reliable.

So far every location I've been or "dungeon" has some kind of story attached to it. The combat in each place might be similar but the added story makes it all more interesting. It gives you a purpose and a sense of discovery.

You can definitely compare it to Oblivion. The same way you can compare a masterpiece like Plansescape Torment to Icewind Dale. Both games use the same engine and "play" similar, but are two very different experiences.

This game rocks, it's every bit as good as the originals. It's also miles better than Oblivion, which I did not like.

You may go back to your hate.

How is it an RPG lite from a gameplay perspective? What makes the gameplay less RPG than the originals.

What makes it RPG lite? The skill system is nearly identical to Fallout's, improved in my opinion. The writing isn't nearly as good, but you have very similar choices to the ones you had in the originals.

The game is definitely easier than the originals.

Can some of you please explain to me what RPG means to you?

I'd just like to point out that the main campaign is designed to be played 2 player co-op. A nice option.

Each area has a range, 1-4, 4-8...ect. The enemies will be somewhere inside that range depending on your level. Once you've entered an area the level is locked.

I have my doubts that the textures are any better in the PC version. The shitty Oblivion textures were shitty in both versions.

The biggest problem is with the car chases that basically make it essential to pick a machine gun as your primary, rather than sniper for those that prefer stealth - that's not as much of an issue for me, though a friend is finding the game quite a chore as sniper. Other than that the combat is great fun.

Tell your friend to get a light machine gun. It goes in the special slot. My loadout is either silenced pistol/sniper/machine gun or grenade launcher/sniper/machine gun.

I don't understand the weapon complaints. I've never had a weapon jam that I bought from the arms dealer. I just get a new one every time I pass one on the road.

Enemy detecting your shots depends on distance and frequency. If you shoot from a long ways off they won't know where you are. It's possible the vehicles have a different setting but the people walking definitely have trouble finding you sniping.

Too fast for a shooter? You people need to get off the "realistic" bandwagon. Lots of us like high speed action. Just like you like slow shooters. A fast shooter doesn't make it consolized.

I'll also point out that the game sports lots of high end graphics for the PC version. That's a lot of extra work for the PC version.

Please do not lump this game in with the ones that are truly poor ports. This game is nowhere near as bad as your Oblivion or Halo.

The game has a few nitpicks, but shit at least it shipped with high res textures and such for the PC. That alone shows they put a lot of work into to PC version. The vast majority of games released on both the PC and console have the same muddy textures all console games have.

The checkpoints are stupid but you can Rambo them and get through in under a minute.

The problem is the FOV doesn't adjust properly. If you're a person with tripelhead the view is all fucked up.

The Gamespy reviewer was actually playing the console version. He mentions having to save at safe houses. Only the console versions are restricted to those save points. Shit the only difference between the reviews is they inserted some PC specific stuff into the PC review, bout 4 sentences. Otherwise they're word for word identical, they forgot to take out the save point part for the PC review.

They mentioned how the AI is inconsistent and erratic.

I'll just say you could add that to just about any review of most games.

Uh...you say you've played them then you say:

Maybe we can sneak around in a brightly lit building or during the middle of the day, for a change.

You can do that in Thief or Splinter cell, as long as you move from cover to cover. Again, those games already do that, they're just removing some of the more difficult to implement options.

What the hell are you talking about? If I'm behind a box the AI shouldn't see me anyway. A shadow/movement/sound stealth system takes more work, which is probably why they dropped it.

Hmm...whats' to keep people from renting the game and paying the transfer fee to move the songs? Does this work with RB 1+2?
