    For anyone thinking of picking this up, I can highly recommend it. From what Ive seen so far, your mainly trapped underground because the surface is full of mutants. It looks/plays a lot like Fallout 3, but graphically far better (Im playing the 360 version which looks great, but Im sure it would look amazing on a good PC) and is a kind of RPG/FPS 'Survival Horror' (which equals WIN in my books :) )

    I dont want to reveal too much of what Ive seen so far because it would spoil it for others. But, I just teamed up with another Russian guy to raid a camp of bandits and before that I was travelling on a mine kart that was attacked by hordes of dog-like beasts :rockout:

    From what Ive seen so far, the game has some really nice touches to it. For one, I like the way your objective pointer is a clipboard with a compass attached to it and to view this in the dark you can use your lighter, and the way you use AMMO as currancy is pretty cool. Military Grade ammo (pre-war ammo that was made before the remaining humans were forced underground) is worth more then 'dirty' ammo (post-war ammo, made underground by hand).....so when your firing at enemies using the Military Grade stuff, you are literally 'shooting money' :eek:

    Im pretty sure that this is going to be a hit :D

    so is it a linear or free-roaming game?

    FPS or RPG?

    With Fallout New Vegas and (possibly) The Elder Scrolls V coming this year, I think I'll pass!

    Too early for me to say really. But by the looks of it its free-roaming because I can walk around and choose what mission to do etc.

    Well considering that vegas isn't going to be released until the end of the year barring its not pushed back and the fact that V isn't even confirmed to exist and has no release window inside the next 10 years currently you have fun missing out on what looks to be a good game while you wait months on end
    digibucc and DannibusX say thanks.

    No Elder Scrolls this year. Sorry, but it's true. Anyone "play" this game yet? I really, really hoping this game is good. It looks great!

    Everyone is talking about how great this game is supposed to be visually. Personally I think that is code for the game having bad code.
    Just like Crysis. While Crysis did look good don't get me wrong.... I can think of a tone of games IMO that look better and are better coded and less taxing.
    I have seen some of the screen shots and personally.... while they look good.... they aren't really all that impressive.
    They kind of remind me of the screen shots from AVP recently. While AVP looked very good and was supposed to have the defining visuals that separated PC from Console's......I think Metro 2033 will also have something in common with AVP.
    All that they are saying about it is just hype!
    I have a feeling that one of the reasons they listed the specs so high to be able to play it.... is because they are using that as a selling ploy to get gamers to buy the game as well as to get people to buy Nvidia cards!
    I also think on a side note that PC graphics have passed up Console graphics along time ago!

    But with all that said and off my chest. It looks like a great game. I like the idea of the story. And if it doesn't turn out to be a poorly written piece of crap.... I will probably buy it. All I would have to do then is bight my tongue during all the Nvidia advertisements!

    Or maybe I am just getting upset for no reason about the tactics used with this game. That's probably it :)

    Although from this video my suspicions seemed to be realized with the crappy coding part..... doesn't it seem to be a little choppy there?

    I'm guessing you've not played Crysis yourself then?

    The level of shit going on is insane.

    Its all in real time too.

    Been looking forward to this game for nearly 4 years . . . Prior to the beginning of this year, I was starting to assume this was going to be vaporware (much like DNF).

    Either way, I'm hoping I can find a copy tomorrow by the time I get off work . . . PC games don't tend to sell too fast at our local stores, although, STALKER:CoP sold out everywhere within only a couple of days (which shocked the hell outta me).

    I own all 3 games..... If you include Crysis wars a game by it's self. I'm not going to defend mo opinion on it..... It's just what I believe.

    But I know I am not alone in this opinion. I know there has been several posts across the net on how crappy Crysis is coded.

    I did't say I didn't like to play the game.... and yeah if you did notice I said the game looks good. But I also said it didn't look as good as most people said it did.

    But I do have great anticipation for Crysis 2.
