Plays pretty well, looks good, and has a couple of neat touches. The duck and cover stuff is not used in many other games, so I suppose that adds a bit, but after an hour found it a bit of a Yawn. Other than the graphics, this coulda been done in the Quake 2 engine nearly 10 years ago. But that could be said of any FPS, wish PC gaming would move on from these...(YAWN) To the guy above, 8500 really isn't a good enough GFX for many games, it's DX10 in name only really. (sorry) You'll get benefit across the board if you move to an 8800 series card. So that £180 spondos will seem much more worth it.
