Maybe you're in the same boat, and your knowledge of the game has been entirely obliterated by the massive marketing and hype campaigns of some of the autumn's biggest titles. I don't blame you: I was the same. And then I was contractually obliged to play Bodycount. And while I doubt you'll find an iconic, genre-defining treat within its corridors and open-plan environments, if you love blowing stuff up then you might just want to pay some attention to this one."
