    I am going to pick up a few games and i am considering getting kane and lynch: dead men, however i have heard that it is buggy and has problems. So, what is everyone's view on this game? I tried out the demo thought it was decent. $20 at futureshop right now. I think i'll pick up crysis and maybe warhead too ($30 + $20). Also, is fallout 3 good? I am going to wait for CoD5 to drop in price, $60 bucks right now. What should I buy?

    I played through alone and with a friend, with a mate was more rewarding but it made even my 4870X2 rig choke a lot it's poorly implemented code in some parts.
    overall worth a shot but not worth over $10-15 imo

    I read the fallout review, sounds like it's pretty good, just hope that the VATS thing doesn't make it too easy. Bonus on how it runs great on lower end graphics cards, Im running a 2600pro so that is an advantage. I am fairly certain that I will buy crysis and warhead as both of them together cost what crysis alone cost when it came out.

    VATS is optional and doesn't detract from the gameplay...slow-motion gib is always, and I mean ALWAYS fun :D

    Fallout was tons of fun.
    Same graphics engine as oblivion I believe.
    it does not disappoint
    you'll enjoy it to the end.

    crysis and warhead were also tons of fun.
    I just finished crysis and warhead a week ago..
    the graphics are intense.
    great games all 3.

    warhead is short though.
    more for the mp online I guess..
    but even being short it was tons of fun.
    and for the price, it's fair.

    you know this is why Bethesda are to be lauded: they didn't disappoint with taking on the Fallout franchise, a lot of fanboys of the original series had misgivings about them. i'm glad Bethesda proved them wrong.

    I had to return Kane and Lynch as there was a game-stopping bug about 15 minutes in....this was release day though.

    Fallout 3 is amazing and definitely worth the money (shame I've lost my copy....)

    I remember the story was great but the performance was horrible--especially on really open maps like that park surrounded by elevated highways. I managed to get through it...barely. I'd say it has a pretty good story but the gameplay doesn't stand out.

    I don't know if I would consider it being worth $20 or not. :confused: That must mean it isn't worth buying. :ohwell:


    Edit: I should add that it was like a year or two ago when I played it (not too long after it came out). Maybe they released a patch to fix a lot of the problems since then.
