Well, I was having some fun with this game up until the 9th level. It is very brutal and unfair, with only 1 heath pack that I could find throughout the whole level. It is a huge level and you can get killed very easily, trying to find anything useful. There are a ton of empty buildings used to house some enemies, but they only drop ammo and weapons, sometimes... Other buildings are just empty and are used to lure you to your death from enemies hiding in buildings across from you.
The biggest problem is the fog. The enemy can see and shoot you way before you spot them. Plus your sniper weapon moves a LOT and theirs do not. They are dead on snipers and they will kill you fast! Without health packs, it's only a matter of time before you stop reloading your quick save and quit playing.
Then there is the problem of not being able to save during the most intense battle in that level. IMO, that was a game breaker. They throw so many enemies at you, it's impossible to get through it without dying. Then you have to take out a tank with almost zero health! Even if you back track way back, you cannot save anymore. It's locked into the "NO SAVE ZONE!!!" It is a very frustrating experience!
If you have killed any of the soldiers that are in the "NO SAVE ZONE:, before you trigger the no save feature, and then save your game… You will have to kill all of the soldiers again, that you lured out of that zone! It's so frustrating!!! Again, don't try to lure them out of the no save zone and then save your game. If you have to reload your save, you'll just have to kill them all over again… And you WILL have to reload many times trying new strategies, only to die over and over again…
Keyboard bindings will not let you bind commands to some key's! Why can't I bind Left-Shift? Kind of the norm these days. So crouching can be rough. And you really need to crouch a LOT!!! Another game breaker for me!
You also do not stop moving for a second making it hard to judge where you will stop. This has gotten me killed many times! Just trying to strafe and shoot is a major chore! You really need to be accurate and do head shots or the enemy will kill you first! So movement sucks! In a FPS, movement is everything!
Collision detection is way off and invisible walls are everywhere. Don't expect to use a vehicle as cover then pop out to shoot. You'll need to step way away from the vehicle to get past that invisible wall. I have died too many times trying to kill an enemy 2 feet away and never hit him. Even with the shotgun! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=438580301
I really wanted to like this game as I said, I was having fun with the first 8 levels. I'm stuck on level 9 and will probably not ever play again as I got too frustrated!!! I may try again when the game is finished, but they really need to fix some game breaking problems for me to play this again. I'll even change this review if they fix the fog and sniper weapon so I can shoot strait.
EDIT: I got past that 9th level. I restarted it and found health packs and armor everywhere. Maybe the new patch fixed this problem. Anyway, now I'm stuck in the sewers with no MAP!!! Silly game IMO...
