Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Just to add a bit to that comment above.

I was very suspicious of this game to start, and only bought it cos it was on sale. I was very surprised that I enjoyed it all the way through. Even the usual shooter ennui didn't set in on the last stages (though the last two were a pain in the ass alright), and I was always happy to fire up the game while finishing it over the course of ten days or so.

I loved the iconography and the take on American Exceptionalism - the US does appear like that to us European types sometimes, and though the shooting wasn't really inspired, it never wore out its welcome - there were just the right small amount of enemies released at the same time, then it was time to move on to a new area.

Pretty cool overall, and I was very impressed. The one sour note was seeing the same female model all through the game - could they not have made a tiny effort in this area given the extravagance shown everywhere else?
