    Anyone playing this? What do you think? Its a blend of Wolfenstein, BioShock and Time Shift if you ask me. Im about 2 hours into it and so far so good. Ive just picked up the Time Minipulation Device (TMD) and Im now going to test it on some enemies lol (making them older or younger) :D

    If your in the UK, PLAY.com have it in stock ;)

    LOL, I coudlnt think of any other way to explain it :roll:

    It is m8. I just picked up a E99 (the discovered element in the game) prototype rifle called 'Seeker' and when you fire it, you actually slow down time and control the projectory of the bullet! It looks far more impressive then it sounds, trust me :rockout:

    Aging the enemy soldiers so they turn to dust is quite good also :)

    Yeah I remember this.. saw a vid once with the player seeing a wrecked staircase, and used some time manipulation device to see it on its previous state as being walkable, with the player consequently traversing the stair's fixed state.

    Trust me, its a cracker :rockout: Its a bit like getting all of your favourite FPS' rolled into one :D

    Yeah, you use the TMD to change the state/phase of items like oil drums, stair cases etc. For example, you may have a garage style door thats jammed with only a small gap visible. You then age a nearby metal crate, you then put the rusted and squashed crate uner the door, then your return the crate to its original state. because the crate then becomes larger, it forces the door open :)

    You really should m8. I cant see many people not loving this game. Im actually finding it more enjoyable than BioShock 2.

    I'm liking the sound of this one!!!

    What's the setting? Is there any apparent story line or plot?

    Without giving too much away. Its set in 2010 and you play as a Russian soldier that has teamed up with the US Special Forces to infiltrate a deserted Russian research base thats situated on a small Russian island called Katorga 12.

    Your flying in by chopper when an EMP blast takes you down. You crash land on the island anyway (lucky that :) ), but your split up from your team. So you proceed into the islands labs and find out it that everything isnt as it seems.

    You see flashbacks, like as if you have been here before.........

    I dont want to say anything else because I would give the plot away ;)

    Honestly guys, GET THIS GAME!!!!!!!!
