So I finished my first play-through last night. It's amazing how much gaming you can do when you are home sick all day and online play is out because your daughter destroyed your backup headset and you haven't received back your primary one from the manufacturer - so online gaming is out.

What a great game. I'm glad Jon was so sure in recommending it. It is definitely worth getting especially if you are a fan of tactical games.

The one mechanism I didn't like was the save games. Only four slots and they could easily get overwritten by autosaves. Also, your character wouldn't stop moving and re-evaluate if all of a sudden enemies came in sight. That second one made for encounters to be incredibly methodical, especially near the end where one shot deaths were very likely.

My final grudge was that the end requirement couldn't be achieved without equipping something. I did a pile of missions hoping training would take over when all I needed to do was equip something. Argh! Of course they WERE fun.

Other than that the game was great!

I didn't do the creep saving thing. In fact I only generally re-ran a mission if I felt cheated and people died. There was also a learning process involved. Next game will probably be hardcore.
