I think I'm going to buy it. Needs a relatively beefy machine to run well, unless you want to sacrifice graphical quality (which you don't - the game looks supersweet Smile ).

Hey, I got it, it looks absolutely sweet but suffers from severe freezes in the first ten minutes of gameplay, after that it runs smoothly. And yes, compare it to my all time favorite FPS/RPG Deus Ex. It's amazing, but buggy. I am eagerly waiting for the patch.

You will get freezes every now and then - I'm not complete sure why, it seems to be related to AI spawning (compiling LUA scripts? That shouldn't take so long. Loading models/textures? They should either be precached, or at least kept cached. Loading level stuff? That seems to happen when you enter new areas. Those freezes are weird!)

Doesn't seem _that_ buggy to me - the small freezes, the "diary" part of the PDA, and every once in a while the graphics garbles (that's probably video driver related though?, and doesn't happen very often).

I'd say action. You can go "guns ablazing", although imho it's better being a bit strategic, hiding behind obstacles and leaning to the side, firing a few well-placed bullets, etc. But you can play it as you want, do missions in more or less the order you want, etc.

Why run Vista anyway Smile

And the game _is_ relatively heavy when you have dynamic lighting on (just on the edge of what's comfortable on my GF7600). Funny thing, though, is that it if I go a few steps about minimum quality, I might as well take it all the way to the max and have same speed Smile
