Yeah its the first FPS I've played through in a while. I snagged it during the Christmas sale and finished it quickly. I look forward to playing through the DLC once the first 3 are released. I have the first DLC that was added to the be-mine deal.

You know, the real key to enjoying this game is replaying the levels to improve your score. It gives you a great feeling to see yourself move up on the leaderboard.

Thanks for the positive comments. I think you will enjoy the upcoming DLC packs -- especially Warp Field. It's my favorite set of levels in the game!

Mine too. I can't stop playing it even though I have no one to beat yet but myself!

Ok...after reading the last 2 posts consider me officially doubleplushyped to play the new levels

I´m really enjoying the pipeworks too, those cheeky 'minibrains' are hidden all over the place!

Paratech2008, Nelwyn couldn´t have explained it any better, the fun is in improving your score. It´s fun doing it and you always are left with the impression you could do it a bit better. Also, for me picking up flashy color bits that give you points never gets old (I actually have to concentrate not to stop and pick them up when I´m doing time attacks!)

Cheers!

I got this game because I wanted a few more first person style games other than normal first person shooters (which I have plenty of) to play with my 3d screen.

I bought the BeMine bundle (mostly for this game and the ball).
The ball was ok, but this game really surprised me.
Xotic always looked interesting to me, but I thought it was just a standard (but old school) fps game with nice colorful graphics.

But this game is truly original, when I heard you get rewarded for stuff like shooting in mid air got me exited, I always love making tricky jump shots in FPS games, but being rewarded for it makes it extra fun.
I like the timed levels without enemies the most, the enemies don't really seem to fit in the game for me.

Maybe there is an enemy free mode and I just didn't notice?

Anyway, this game looks beautiful in stereo 3d.

The bonus levels have no enemies. They are the ones with the little clock icon when you select your level.

Yea I know, I said I like those the most, just hoped there was a way to play other levels like bonus levels.

That's great news! I haven't seen the game in 3D yet. What setup are you using to do 3D with (card/monitor/glasses) ?
