    First off I have to say Holy Sh*T. Ok now that is over this game is so awesome. The cover and the way they use it makes the game, the game play seems fluid and not too forced so far. I am only about 30 mins in but I am already absorbed by the story. Unfortunately I don’t have a High-def TV at my apartment but on my 32 inch (rounded glass) I was still blown away by the graphics of this game I am a avid PC gamer enthusiast and so far it I cant think of any game that beats it (FEAR come in par with it). Will have to try it out on my parents 52 inch High Def.


    I haven’t played any multiplayer yet will need to get solid with the controls before I venture into that realm.

    Overall for my initial thoughts I give this a 4.75 out of 5 OSNN stars..

    Only Con I have and its not really a con is that the running mechanism while looks so freaking cool gives me a headache lol.

    Two more things about this game..
    1. chainsaws on the end of machine guns and being able to sneak up behind someone and just chomp through them is so badarse.
    2. The fact that with a stationary mounted heavy machine gun you can see chunks of flesh being torn away away and the body breaking apart is amazing. The graphics are so damn good.
