And I can quite easily say it was the best video game of any sort I have EVER played. Better than any of the Half Lifes (lives?), better than Alpha Centauri, better than Deus Ex, better than any of the Neverwinter Nights games, any of the Dungeon Sieges, any of the Halos, BETTER than SW: Knights of the Old Republic I and II. And that is high praise. It is almost without fault. I actually can't think of anything in it right now that consistently bothered me throughout the game. Even the slomo sequences where you don't have complete control over your character that would annoy the piss out of me in any other game were just brilliant. The ending. The ending was the best part of the entire goddamn game. You know the **** is gonna hit the fan when the only objective is to survive. And it delivers. In spades. One of the first games I've played in a very long while that I've wanted to replay. So, if you haven't yet played it, go out and buy it. If you've downloaded it, go out and buy it. This game is such an utter masterpiece that it's an insult to the developers not to, and this is coming from someone who has downloaded 99 out of the last 100 games he's played on the PC. And as a bit of cherry on top for your cake... the game runs perfectly and looks absolutely stunning visually on my PC, which is barely above the $800 low-end recommendation you see in the back of PC Gamer.
