looks interesting, glad to see they kept the shape-shifting monoliths and black goo.

I must admit, I've been pretty skeptical...it's had a 'complex' development to say the least, with the changes, that long period of silence after Enemy Unknown was released...makes me cautious. Wasn't too keen on the idea of 'rebooting' a game which is a highly regarded turn based strategy/sim into a first/third person shooter either, tactical or not.

Saying that, the trailer looks interesting...I'll hold further judgement until more is known, Fishy made a fair point in the other article peeps were raging over Fallout going from a isometric RPG to a FPSRPG in Fallout 3, yet is works brilliantly.

The kid's hair's way too long for 1962.

You need to be tactical,we will see,to be honest ive heard it all before.Ime going to be really fussy about day 1 purchases until i no what is going on with next xbox.That aside the price in games over the last 6 months are dropping fast,I blame game for this,i bought 2 copy of hitman 2 weeks after it came out just before xmas and 3 days later they put it on offer for 20 pound.With my back log of games to get through and the way prices are dropping i will be lucky to by a day 1 before gertrude comes out.I bought injustice day 1 and dragons dogma today but the latter does not count as its not a full price game and the former has got to be a contender for goty.I do like the fact that they have not rushed the release of this game,that bodes well with me and i will keep my eye on it.
