    is it right for me to be relieved there is a big title that does not try to reinvent the genre, but just seems to 'work'?

    If Bit-Tech are invoking Half-Life comparisons, they're either a) very dumb or b) quite sure it'll turn out to be a great game. I'm really hoping for b) :)

    A PC-friendly attitude from THQ is also heartening.

    same as all other games, don't get your hopes up and you shouldn't be disappointed.

    would love some scripted under-the-radar missions. my favourite missions in MW series was sneaky ones with Price

    Whoa, whoa. I'm not saying it's AS GOOD AS Half-Life, just that it uses a similar approach.

    I do think it looks really good, but lets not start getting carried away, eh?

    Sweet. I get to fight in environments I've seen in real life finally. So sick of the f-n desert. And world war two.

    As for the weapons available, just let me carry my 1911 through the entire game and I'll be happy. Realistic AND effective!

    Have to agree it would be a bit of a 'miss-step' to compare a potentially rotten apple to the Half Life series. So I'm looking forward to this, hope not to be disappointed.

    That's even if it's just in the approach it takes.

    would be interesting if they created a different scenario, like america this time going rogue and invading another country, and you are defending against it :D, that would make it totally different. lol, yeah yeah , I just woke up,lol

    Where have u been living? That already is pretty much every other game out there.
    Sure , sure, they say they are defending against someone, but are you really when yiou are taking over other counrty.

    On the other hand I am really looking forward to some triple A game that does not include US in any way.

    That was what I was thinking. 'Red Dawn', complete with pick-up driving, hunting rifle packing (at least initially) 'Wolverines' was filmed at the very hieght of the Reagan era Cold War, and was partly funded by the CIA.

    Anyway, looks pretty good. Can you make IEDs in the game? How far do they take this 'insurgent' premise? After all, one man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.

    Sounds excellent.

    To me it sounds very much like the single player missions in BF2:BC which I am enjoying immensly.

    This has sparked my attention, actually looks good. 'bout time the USA got occupied and invaded in a game instead of the US invading unknownistan!

    Think I'll be buying this

    Could this be the next Half-Life?

    I wasn't interested before, now this sounds good.
