During the first "mission" especially, I noticed the gameplay is really dark. At night it can be very hard to see. Does anyone else notice it, or is it just my TV? I had to raise the brightness/contrast in the menu quite a bit.

I noticed the dark aspects of gameplay when watching some of the gameplay videos on the internet. Its actually worrying since those videos belonged to the Xbox360 version and we've all heard how DARKER it is with the Playstation 3. Hopefully its not as dark as the Splinter Cell series lol, my guess would be it was made that way to give you the whole Liberty City night feeling. Or it could simply be your TV thats the problem. tongue.gif

Yep, the very first impression i had was how dark it was (oddly enough, my very first impression of SA was how orange it was, and that bugged me through the entire game) but in IV after 10 mins i just turned up the brighness by 3 or 4 it's all good now! Love the holding X for full beams, nice touch.
