I'm going to refrain from composing a huge list of clearly obvious gameplay mechanic flaws (not opinion there) that easily degrade the fun and enjoyment of the title, where it could have been MUCH better, no doubt in my mind. The reviews alone with these changes would be much higher, I promise you.

Oh, it's pretty easy to list changes that would give the game better reviews. Just make the game like CoD.

As for the clearly obvious gameplay mechanic flaws, I'm interested in what you have to say. If you believe that platforming and puzzle-solving are flaws, I'm going to have to disagree with you there.

Honestly the puzzle solving was really one of my favorite parts of the game. I loved controlling the duke statue the most, and the wrecking part.

I just can't sit through the parts inbetween.

One gripe i forgot to point out is the damage models and the blood in this game are really strangely toned down. Bullet decals only appear on dismembered parts of the corpses and nowhere else.

When the games weapons don't secure a solid feeling with the guns, it really makes the whole shooting the entire game less cool. ESP when most first person shooters revolve around the first person and the gun infront of you.

Fallout for example, the gun animations for the pistols etc are pretty cheesy, and don't feel like I'm shooting a real gun. But when you hit a mob's head and you see the 15+ chunks JUST FOR THE HEAD, it really makes it pack a sense of wallop. Duke's shotgun to me is the only gun that seemed to still pack that Wallop!

The first alien rifle you get is so lame and weak, then the later on heat seeking rifle feels just as weak.

srly the puzzles were better then most titles, thats what's dissapointing. I know this game could be getting better reviews (minus being COD) That COD quote really only applies to the bigger reviewers like IGN etc. Where money is clearly involved, or you have someone who should never be delegated to review a game esp if they gave crackdown 2 a good score etc. Some people just don't have a good gauge on what good really is.

Lately making money is where "good" is, as far as most dev's now and days are concerned.. thats why you have too many COD rippofs.

I think the player reviews as a whole would be better with more wallop.

The lack of kick btw. That's such a big No No. Dark Messiah of might and magic did the kick new FPS age justice.

*goes to play dark messiah*

^----allright story but with INCREDIBLY awesome swordfighting dynamics. Better than oblivions jokey swings.
