other than them taking that out they added so much more. Graphics top notch, its one of the the most immerse games out there great stealth action u play ur way, wish u were able to customize ur guns on the fly and be able to slide to cover.

I like that the game takes place in the future, but the guns are very much pre-apocalypse so it's much more realistic. No laser guns or pulse rifles. Just good old lead. Gameplay is good and aiming is easy.
Graphics good have been better - not just with detail, but the actual depiction of mutants. Some of them look great, others look rushed and just... generic. Story line is okay, but relatively short. I played a little everyday for about a week and beat it on the medium difficulty.
All things considered, though - this is a SOLID game.

We will start with the good. This game was really fun to play and I loved the concept behind it. Lets clear some things up aside from being post apocalyptic this game isn't like fallout. It's not open world, and being out in the open above the tunnels is a scary place. I like the realism they added to the game with having to have a gas mask and filters when above ground. It adds to the suspense. The fact your mask can break in combat is also very cool. I like how the flashlight, compass, and night vision goggles require a battery, that you have to pump to recharge. The fact you can go stealth with the ability to turn or shoot out lights to not be seen is also a really cool feature.The game setting does a great job if immersing you and the environments while not the best I've seen still hold up. With that said there are things that bring you out of the experience. Console freezing and lag happened a few times on me (only once where I had to turn my system off). Lag is much more frequent. When in conversation or someone's speaking in game it's hit or miss whether there mouths move (not consistent). The voice acting isnt great. Enemy AI is rather dumb, not noticing you when your right next to them. I had issues where my gun was loaded and would get stuck zoomed in or it wouldn't fire until I switched guns and switched back. Real fun when your in amidst a gunfight with the enemies. Regardless the bugs weren't enough to derail the whole experience but enough to knock it down a point or so. It's worth a rent, not something I'd want to have for a second play through.
