View Full Version : Best Single Player Game in along Time

I just got around to playing this game, and it is amazing. VERY FAST. I have finished it twice and I always feel like my mind and hands just do not work fast enough to do everything I want from it. Many will complain it is too short, but I played it without firing a single shot at an enemy!
Another DICE game that knocks it out of the park! I just wish there was SOME plans about making another.
BTW, Why don't people tell Me about these sleeper games. I have over 200 friends and never seen anyone play this! The graphics are amazing, the use of contrast is awesome and when you really get things going FAST and move without much slow down, things start to get really fun!

The game does give you a good sense of running around an actual obstacle course. The fluidity between jumping over railing, sliding and wall jumping is pretty intuitive and becomes a second hand thing real quick. I enjoyed reaching top speeds and trying to maintain that top speed. I think there's even a 30 second top speed achievement in the game.
I also dig the extra content for just racing on a particular level and being able to see your ghost is cool too.

YEs I agree, and I have found this to be true, but the thing that I find to be the most difficult is to combine the movement options with the combat. Near the end of my first run through, I was by passing allot of baddies by running along the wall and right past them. But combos of using Terrain and combat together is often where I start to get overloaded.

Agree I become Faith when I play. The full body awareness in the game is great.:D

i'm really enjoying the tense feelings you get in this trying to get from point a to point b....but it's definitely broken up for me as I seem to die more in this game than any other I've played. It's as bad as the MW2 save game attrition!

One of the few video games in the whole history of video games I would call an "art".

noticed it was real short though. 2.5 hours? This from someone that takes AGES to finish games.

It was the only game that I have ever played though that the shortness(4 hrs for me. what? I'm not coordinated) didn't bother me a bit. It was a great nugget of fun-ness!:D:D Too bad there will never be a sequel. Then again perhaps it's better that way they would probably just casualize and ruin it.:(

Hummmm, Last I read anything on the game, it was it sold so bad it was no go on a sequel. Great to hear that in 10-15 years that small team will bring us a new game!;):D

hahahaha, sounds good to me =) The only thing I don't like is the focus towards multiplayer that eA is taking. They might mess it up, timing wise, in a similar fashion. Just hope they give us some good single player.
Did you feel like the single player, in terms of environments and progression felt similar to HL2? was that just me?
