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

Nazi's beware.

ZOMG!!! triple post!!

ok, lets get this out there right now... this is not assassin's creed or infamous or grand theft auto or metal gear solid or mercenaries or sly cooper or godfather II or any of that shit... yet it borrows from all of that shit...

assassin's creed (CQC combat and scaling buildings)
infamous (ditto on building-scaling but, collecting shards/intel = destroying nazi shit)
grand theft auto (sandbox driving and robust city)
metal gear solid (stealth and infiltrating... yes, stealth is involved and yes, it can be used quite effectively)
mercenaries (milder destruction but, the one great element this title steals from their previous pandemic games tho)
sly cooper (IDK but i feel like sly, scouting strongholds from rooftops and infiltrating undetected)
godfather II (it's also from EA and the menus, graphics, and game play feel eerily similar)

there were times when i was playing this that i felt like i was a basterd from tarintino's new flick laugh.gif... walk up on a lone nazi in the streets and snap his neck... take his suit to infiltrate an area on alert... destroy the tower... shoot my way out... flee the pursuing nazi's... ... biggrin.gif... do a mission for the family, which deals with getting revenge on more nazi's... it's like he's collecting scalps without actually cutting them off... he's turning into more of a badass the more i play, the more i understand the scheme and unlock new tools... and that's almost assassin's creed II-like...

the art direction is one to behold as well... if only this game were given more time, or had an amazing graphics team, this would be one of the best artist visions in video games... never mind the fact that color is restored to areas that you've helped liberate, or that things don't quite look polished... forget all of that, the rainy colorless streets of nazi occupied france are really fucking awesome to take in... the only colors you see are lights, blue contraband (currency), and red nazi shit... it really makes the area feel dark and dangerous... something you might want to be a little careful through... it's the boldest artistic moves in graphics that i've seen in i can't remember... it's immerse...

i like this game... the flashback that you could actually play and interact with near the beginning was really fucking sweet as well... it seemed to give to the story more strength and really, the story is starting to feel more involved... and i guess you can chalk that up to some pretty decent voice acting and writing... it's witty and devastating at the same time...

a game well worth $60 and, a game well worth checking out for those of you that spot in the bargain bin for $20 because you decided to pass on it... it's understandable... not everyone is interested in these games but, do know that there is fun to be had for a few bucks in the future...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Good review bones, my thoughts exactly. The only comparison you left out was to Okami - replenishing color to an area choked out by evil. Glad you got the game though.

Anyway, I played last night for the first time in about a week or so (been slammed by the holidays, work, etc.) and I played through a mission where you infiltrate a Nazi base and essentially crash a zeppelin. It was the first mission I used stealth successfully in. I managed to get past about 25-30 guard before I decided it might be more effective to use a trench gun to blast my way through the rest of the base. The mission played out like a movie; cinematic explosions; catchy one-liners ("Master race my ass!"); beautiful cut-scenes.

Dare I say I like this game more than GTA4? Yes. More action, better setting, characters, story and concept.
