A co-worker LOVED it while I found it pointless. My co-worker loves to replay the same mission to get to perfection in all of the games he plays. He isn't frustrated by the tedium you and I felt; I think he actually likes that type of gameplay. I now look upon his gaming raves with a jaundiced eye. :) Hitman 2 looks beautiful and plays pretty well, too. It just isn't any fun. It was like ... GASP ... working. Repeat. Replay. Reload. And the same thing happens again. I stopped after the first level when I read the walkthroughs online and they had all these nifty methods that took trial and error to figure out. I have a job; I don't want my games to feel the same way.I may give Mafia a try.I just finished up Mafia, and that was a treat to play, mostly. I liked the game better than GTA3, which it closely resembles. I was challenged but had to only occasionally replay the same level. I thought the save-game "feature" would bother me but I actually came to prefer it for the main quest portion. The save-game sucks for "Free Ride" mode, though. I'm not a fan of console gaming and the save-game systems are a big reason why (the other is I'd have to get a TV and probably a couch, too).--ibbieta
