Can't wait till the third one. It's supposed to have a real-money auction house and always-online functionality.

Hey, finally a sequel to an FPS that I actually finished.

roblef2007d ago

I never finished the first one, so I hope this one keeps me interested. I'm not too much into the gun porn.

I never got into this game. I actually just saw some gameplay for the first time just now on youtube, I didnt even know it was a fps/role playing game. seems like theres a lot of hype for this game. based off the reviews its a well deserved hype.

it this a game that I should look into getting later on?

konnerbllb2007d ago

No you shouldn't look into getting it later on. You should get it tomorrow, it's worth it.

Bathyj2007d ago

Yes. I never got into either.

Gave it another try on the weekend. Many late nights/early mornings later I've played about 30 hours since friday

deantak2007d ago
