I really enjoyed my first play through. It's a solid FPS for sure. Being able to run n gun or play stealthy when you want is a welcome addition. In fact all the little extra features really help make it a better game. It's not often i want to replay a game or spend time collecting all the hidden items, but I'll definitely be doing it with this game.


I've put that aside for the moment however to play Sniper Elite III. So far, I haven't been disappointed It's a lot of fun. Looks great and runs smoothly (although I have had the rare system crash in between loading screens, not in gameplay. Possibly driver related???).

I'm running at 5760x1200, all ultra, SSAA x2.25 with AA on low and it's smooth as butter. Core gameplay is the same as VII but with some welcome additions (improved x-ray for human and now vehicles, more chance to snipe with sound masking and the load out options). It also "feels" less linear even though it still is. You can tackle situations from a variety of ways/methods.

And no more bottles for collectables! I never did manage to find all of them in VII...

If you liked VII - you'll like VIII.

Thanks Patrick. I've decided to definitely wait till to get I get some gaming time. Plus I just bought Metro Last Light complete edition so that I'll be the first game played when I've got time. Hopefully by then the price for Wolfenstein would have dropped.

Anyway my gaming is now on hold as I concentrate on finishing off my Associates degree this year, then Bachelors shortly after that.

Peace

red orchestra 2/rising sun. I still love this game. had it since day one. its so brutally realiatic and soo unforgiving. if you dont use tactic or cover youll last about 2 seconds!

just a shame only die hard fans keep it alive, with only 2000 or so active people at one time. still makes it easy to find a 64 player game on hardcore.

I hear you mate, since I've started my course my gaming time has been somewhat limited. (And I seem to enjoy playing more because of it).

And Metro LL should keep you amused for a bit. It's worth a couple of replays just to try different weapons/styles of playthroughs. I've no doubt you'll get around to Wolfenstein sooner or later, hopefully cheaper and already patched.

I "thought" I started out on hardcore - Custom setting of Realistic bullets, harder AI with some of the assists, but I was getting way too many headshots etc. Turns out the custom setting reverted it to Cadet mode. Once I realised, I just stuck with the Sniper Elite setting which leaves the tagging, enemy state of suspicious/spotted and aiming assists on.

I'm looking forward to trying the authentic mode - but the main assist I really rely on is the aiming square. I can't seem to hit shit without it (And you can't pick and choose what assists are enabled like you could in II which sucks a bit. It's either all or none).

If you've just gone through II on Hardcore, then you'll be right at home in III The only mechanic that has changed in that area of gameplay is that you can get your breath back much quicker for focus mode which is welcome.

Dem sinus allergies are fine for me, but no good for my rig lol. I was a bit premature in saying the game ran butter smooth at my surround settings. I had to end up disabling SSAA. It really om noms the VRAM and was causing way too many slow downs since it was maxing out my 3GB limit. Yeah, Boo hoo to me

And while the x-ray cam is even better in III, I do wish they added exploding brains as well... still very satisfying though

I am going through Half Life again while waiting for the SEIII to come down in price and hope patched but mainly cos I am a cheap sob LOL. Thanks for the little write up on the campaign, much appreciated. As always, I am going to start with the easy/normal mode because, like you, I suck at shooting w/o some kind of aid and I am thick headed enough not to understand the added aids they give you .


I learn something new yesterday by watching someone played SEIII... I learn that Germans used to speak Italian in Africa back in the middle of WWII

I haven't really noticed much need for patching, but yeah I can understand waiting for the price to drop. At least you know there'll be a good game to wait for.

The aids in this one are even more straight forward so you shouldn't have much issues

I had a go on Authentic that maxes difficulty and removes all aids, map, most of the hud and did better than I thought. Still a shit shot though lol. The only thing that really sucks about the authentic mode is no manual saves OR checkpoints. You die, you have to restart the WHOLE mission... challenging.

Actually, the Italian speakers were Italians

The Italian government at the time was also Facist and they were allies with Germany and fought in the African campaign, amongst others. (They were pretty shit allies though tbh). When you have your hands on the game, you can tell the difference by the uniforms. They're only in a few missions.

Ahhh, ok so that map I saw was protected by Italians then, it was part of that gameplay video we had already seen... ok, that makes more sense now. I thought it was going to be like ghost Recon Future Soldier where the African Militia was speaking Portuguese.
