This may amuse some of you younger gamers: Up until December 31st, the only fps game I'd ever played was Red Crucible and it's later reincarnation RC Reloaded. It's a free game, and lots of fun, but it was getting boring and I was coming to realize it's fairly basic. So I finally decided to try one of the COD series- I'd never played any before. By comparison, this game is far more challenging, more intense. Hell it even has a story line and my partner said it looks like an interactive movie. Well, the graphics aren't that good, but they're better than RC. The game isn't exactly realistic: bad guys standing at point blank range hosing you down, and you're only getting "wounded". Still, I'm just beginning, and haven't even considered trying the online stuff yet- too busy getting killed in the introductory stuff to try that yet. Yeah, I know there are far better, more realistic games out there- but this is proving to be an enjoyable challenge for this old fart.
