Seriously, this game is too fucking linear.
You have a crowbar (gun "1"), it takes out enemy "A" (first enemy encountered) with realtive ease.
Enemy "B" comes along, the crowbar does not work well against enemy "B"...
So you find gun "2", it is effective at killing enemy "B" and anything lower than enemy "B"...
Enemy "C" comes along and the process repeats until you get some god-like gun that kills everything.
The A.I. is dumb as shit, if the fucking thing sees you it will stay still wherever it is and shoot at you no matter where you go or what gun it has.
If you want insane A.I. give HALO 2 in legendary a spin, THAT is good A.I.
Its does have good graphics, but I still prefer the Unreal Engine 2 (UT2K4), its more flexible and powerful.
However, no one gives a shit about graphics if the game sucks ass. (except fanboys and graphics whores).
I'm not saying this is a bad game, but from a gameplay stance, this is piss poor. Truly good gameplay resembles TLG's System Shock 2. This game dissapoints, just like the first.

dude 2: no, i just pass up the oppitunity to buy the greatest game of all time so i have more time to masterbate and make fun of the old and retarted.
dude 1: you shuld get it, it rules!
And look how far Half Life has come, people are still making mods for a 6 year old game. Imagine what they can do with the source engine!? Half Life 2 will last much longer than Halo2 and I bet Microsoft is trying to make Halo 3 as fast as possible so people don't lose intrest in the Halo series. Whereas Valve will take it's time because Half Life 2 isn't gonna lose intrest anytime soon.
