Who's got it? I just received it in the mail today and I'm excited about getting to play tonight.

Nazi's beware.

The animations looks stiff.

Your mother.

I've been playing this for a little while, haven't had the time to sit down and give it the marathon gaming session I gave Assassin's Creed 2 last month. Perhaps after Christmas.

Anyway, I'm at 9.4% in the game - I've completed the first mission, the "flashback" sequence and have started a few missions for the Resistance to fuck up the Nazi regime. There's a pretty decent revenge story (a la Assassin's Creed 2) and some semi interesting characters. The main character looks hauntingly like my Irish roommate in college, spot on. Basically, you're a drunk from Ireland, Sean Devlin, who used to be a professional racer until the Nazis ruined his race career and killed his best "buddy". Since the race and the chain of events that lead to his friend's murder; Sean has basically just been drinking and fucking while the Nazis take over Paris and the rest of Europe.

The city of Paris is huge and their are Nazi's everywhere. They've basically set up shop on every street corner, atop of every building and even all up in the titty club you live in. The city is full of detail, down to the cobblestone streets, the historic landmarks, and the surrounding country side. The area is huge; almost overwhelming. The cars that populate the city are historically accurate as well. There are beaters, race cars and all sorts of Nazi vehicles available for hijacking. Nazi Zeppelins float overhead, just waiting for me to find a rocket launcher.

The storyline follows the main character's path to revenge by basically killing off every Nazi in Paris and by doing so, inspiring the French to stop being such pussies (this is the most unbelievable aspect of this game). There are over 1000 different Nazi sniper towers, offices, vehicles, propaganda or Generals that need to be SABOTAGED in order to properly motivate them. Performing acts of SABOTAGE also generate contraband that you can spend on guns, maps, upgrades, etc. There is a nice leveling system in place that rewards you for doing x number of kills with a certain weapons or your fists. There is also the car collection aspect which also unlocks perks from your mechanic; who also has the ability to utilize NITROUS OXIDE to make a 1939 Bugatti Type 53 do over 100 mph. Very handy guy.

The gameplay is very fun. The controls are very reminiscent of Grand Theft Auto and the driving is more of the Saint's Row 2 persuasion. Sean has the ability to climb, I've already climbed the Eiffel Tower, twice, simply by scaling the metal struts. The climbing is much slower than Assassins Creed (and obviously Assassins Creed 2) however it does allow for a more "controlled" climb. You can basically select the ledge you wish to jump to by rotating your view and then press an action button which launches you in that direction. There's no need to grasp when you're falling either, Sean takes care of that on his own. Sean can run for forever, which is handy when Nazis are firing at you non-stop. He can also absorb over 100 bullets before really getting ready to die. It sounds ridiculous, but it's pretty necessary considering the firepower the Nazi's are bringing.

I've only noticed one glitch or bug. It was actually kind of funny. A messenger came running over to me - backwards. Very minor, but very unexpected.

Overall it's a pretty good game. I haven't given it the attention it deserves, honestly. It seems easy to get lost in, but real life time constraints are killing me.

I've been in two minds whether to buy this game but after reading that review I think it's likely to be my next game. If this is what you have to say about it with less than 10% completed then I'm definitely getting it.
Can you free roam in between missions without restrictions or do more areas of the city open up as you progress?

After you complete the first mission and flashback - which are essentially tutorials, you wake up in Paris and the whole city is available. There are certain bridges that are blocked off by Nazi blockades, but there is nothing stopping you from swimming across the river or running a car through the blockade (and getting the Nazi's attention.

I really recommend the game, especially if you're a fan of the era. It's the L.A. Noire that never was. The black and white theme vs. the contrast of color is really something to behold.

I actually got a new HD TV the day after getting this game. Switching from a standard to an HD totally revolutionized the game. The graphics are great, even the digital nudity - the burlesque scenes are actually very well done - something straight out of Moulin Rouge. Classy, yet tittiful.
