Weeman 0313 nailed it. I have not even made it half way through the game when I realized WOW attention to detail! I wondered what have game fly user reviews said about this game it can't possibly be bad!?!? Just as I thought great reviews so far. IT SEEMS and I'm not sure because I've only played it maybe for a couple hours but it seems that even guns have their own process of reloading them. What I mean is that even loading the shotgun has its own technique and its not just cr'a'ck the barrel open and jam some shells in there and you are ready to go, nope there is more to it! I'm not sure if all guns are that unique but they have put A LOT of detail into it. It is such a nice surprise to find a game SO WELL put together, and have had very little commercial runtime. Or at least 'I' never saw a whole cr'a'p load of commercials for it. The most I saw any trailers for it where on GAME FLY! It seems like a diamond in the rough, I hope its a long game! I guess we'll found out! I'll still give it a 10 because I'm confident I will not be disappointed, DESPITE how Weeman is absolutely correct about the voice clashing! Annoying as it is I will look past it and give it a well deserved 10 even going out on a limb and having not beat it yet mind you!
A could have been great game marred by severe bugs

OK so you play as Artyom in Soviet underground. Cool. Nice graphics, an alive world, nice monsters all good. However the fact that single handedly destroys this game is its buggy combat. The guns as some have mentioned to be as weak are not just weak but the hit mechanic is horribly flawed. The same guy that dies in 2 shots can take up 20 shots instead, all because it was moving( playing an animation). This game can take frustration to unprecedented level not surpassed only by the likes of The force unleashed and the latest bionic commando. Too bad I purchased this game day one along with god of war 3. These guys had guts releasing the same day.
I was pretty excited about this game, for some reason i thought THQ would stick to their 3rd person format (saints rows, red faction, etc) in a fallout, rpg kinda game... BOY WAS I WRONG, its a clunky fps, you dont get to interact with any other survivors hanging out in the metros, and the only thing you shoot at are mutant dogs that look like skags in Borderlands. BACK TO GAMEFLY SAME DAY
