    It does look great, but HP bars > bloodscreen. Bloodscreen is far to unskilled CoD noobfest for me. Other than that, this game looks pretty decent all round from what this video shows. Any word on how many hours the story takes to complete on hardest settings ?

    I agree that the auto-health regeneration takes away immersion, they could've let the guy seek cover and apply some sort of bandages or painkillers w/e just so it doesn't look like he can run through a rain of bullets continually. But the game looks nice, although apart from a cool badguy it doesn't show anything new.

    I see your point of not adding anything new Pete and I guess I have to agree, with what is shown in the trailer anyway. You cannot agrue that it looks outstanding, and if the campaign/story takes a good amount of hours to complete on the hardest setting, I may just buy it for that, but yes, you are right, this "just another shooter". A bloody good looking shooter though. Maybe there are new things they bring to the genre that the trailer doesn't show and someone else on the forum can enlighten us with.

    Health bar and use of bandages/painkiller/medpak/stimpak/whatever is infinitely better than bloodscreen regeneration. Damn xbox and CoD have a lot to answer for.

    Is it only me that finds annoying the arrows pointing where you are getting hit from?

    Yes. Again, there needs to be a mode to disable all this stuff. All I want is a gun, an hp bar, a health pack and an objective. No go here go there directions, no HUD telling me how many bullets I have in my gun or how many I have left, no arrows showing where enemies are, no flashing "CLICK ME" items in the gameworld. I WANT A CHALLENGE. Too much to ask in this day and age ?

    I don't understand the arrows either, you are still not paying attention to them when you are being shot at. The best way and most realistic way is to hear where the shots come from, it's also more realistic and less intrusive. Just make sure you don't have a Mono headset..if they still exist.

    I find that fighting the UI/controls is a bad way of challenging you. :p The choices you make should be more relevant imho.

    Also, even though I personally am a fan of the oldschool health-bar thing I think the immersion argument is quite silly, it's not like either option is even remotely realistic. If you want realistic, play ArmA/Operation Flashpoint.

    I don't argue either is immersive, just that health bar with healing consumables is far more skilled than bloodscreen with regeneration.

    I didn't reply to you either ;) They can both have distinct advantages/disadvantages though. For example, environmental control is more important in the auto-regen version (since you generally need cover to gain health) but favors only burst, whilst there is an added skill-element of if you can slowly wittle someone down in a healthbar game they will be out of consumables etc. It's not black and white.

    The one thing that told me it was consolised before I even saw the ps3 controller was the glowing guns when dropped! Why would a gun suddenly become golden when the guy wielding it dies?
    Looks graphically pretty good (not a huge jump from what we are used to on pc since crysis 1) but the gameplay looks like same old shit.

    Sorry but wide berth from me.

    uhh shit like that has been in games forever, mostly in Modern Military and WWII games. But yeah it's unnecessary aswell, as graphics nowadays make it rather easy to recognize a weapon. But hey, its still better than having a gun in the middle of a shrine or block floating in mid air right?

    I talked to one of the guys in QA, who accidentally said they had been working on making it the longest campaign they've ever pushed. Then he realized he couldn't say that, so it will last about 10 minutes (12 if you're bad).
