    Mafia II is definitely worth $7.50. I love a game that sets you back in an older time period and this game does a good job of it.

    That is a very nice offer thanks i might have to do that at some point.

    For example for some reason Bulletstorm isn't available in cyprus if you gifted it to me would it work??

    Don't know if this was mentioned yet, but if you preorder Homefront on Steam you get Metro 2033 for free :)

    It was all the rage on TPU when it came out not too long ago. Unless you have an insanely good system you won't be able to turn all the eye candy on, but I've definitely heard (and read) good things about the game itself.

    Metro 2033 is amazing ;)
    I'm pretty sure it was briefly discussed a couple of pages back.
    Mr McC says thanks.

    Metro is great. But I'm waiting to upgrade my system before I finish it.

    Metro 2033 is amazing, as long as you keep some attention to the story, and as long as you realise that the stopping power of most firearms is far from great (of course, but some user reviews on the interweb suggest that some people don't realise that).

    About how demanding the game is: it depends on how much details you want and your screen resolution. On non-HD screens and medium settings, it may run more or less (no super frame rates, but playable) with medium hardware (see my signature and system specs, btw I disabled Advanced PhysX).
    On HD screens and/or visual quality in it's full glory with all the bells and whistles, it will definitely get very demanding. Especially with tesselation enabled.

    disable physX and tesselation in metro and it runs better on most systems. the physX is a gimmick in the game anyway.

    I just snapped up Mafia II. Would it be worth getting Mafia 1 to play before it as I have never played it? Are the two stories connected at all? (without any major spoilers please :) )
