Had a hell of a time with the demo, but it looks like they WAYYYY upped the likelihood of the crazy Xray shot happening in the full game which bums me out. Hopefully easily modded/console commanded to fix that, because I loved that part of the game. Made kills so damn satisfying and cringe worthy. Never thought I'd watch a man's testicle explode, let alone from that point of view :3

So I heard this game doesn't have MP and only includes Co-op? If so, big fail

You can set the amount of killcams in the settings.

Anyhow: I have the PC-version. I've played for 2 hours now. Can't really judge the game yet, as I'm experimenting with difficulty settings and replayed the second mission a few times (the first is a tutorial).

But I can tell you 1 sure thing: the game looks nothing like in the screenshots. The screenshots have been multisampled and vamped up with filters. The aliasing in this game is awful, even on ultra settings and AA (some sort of MLAA or FXAA, but definitely not MSAA) on high. Also a lot of details are invisible from a certain distance (LOD decreases with distance I mean).

But the lighting is superb. Reminds me of Crysis 2.

I'm pretty sure the PC version has MP.

I really liked the demo of this.

I'm loveing the tits off this game atm. Playing it at the propper difficulty and it's intense as hell, but even more satisfying when you judge a 300m shot perfectly. It has it's issues, but this is easily in this years best games for me. Love it.

This game is pure headshot porn, unfortunately it isn't much else, the level/mission design feels like a 10 it's taken from a ten year old game, a bland shooter hidden behind a fancy killcam system, very much a bargain bin game.
