Watch out for the foul-mouthed 12 year old ninjas... Not only can they kill you from a mile away without being seen they talk crap to you.

I've been playing it for the last 3 months, but yea, it will suck you in and not let go. I don't particularly consider myself a creative person but damn I am making all kinds of crap in the game. I do find myself losing interest and getting bored when I'm not working towards something, then I start a new world/new map when I run out of things to do.

I picked it up the first day before reading the reviews. I wish I had waited. Maybe it'll get better.

All the trailers I've seen for BF3 look great. I'm just not expecting much.
The single player will not be sandbox, but it should be a fun campaign.

This will remain a mostly multiplayer game. I went back to Bad Company 2 after hating Black Ops and I've been having a lot of fun with it. My new favorite map is heavy metal, I'm not sure when they added that one but I don't remember it when I first got the game. Wide open with tons of vehicles, my favorite kind of map.

They only had what 15 years to work on it? I remember reading about it when I was still a kid and got EGM and Gamepro

Anyone grab Team Fortress 2? It's now Free on Steam. Looks sort of like CF but with the tongue to cheek, cartoon atmosphere to it.

Is it just PvP or is there a co-op with AI?

I've been playing TF2 for years now, amazing game. 5 minutes spent playing it and you will understand why it was game of the year.

To answer your question, its all about the team work... One team works against the other team and hilarity follows.

Take a look on youtube for the TF2 videos of Meet the heavy, spy, demoman, soldier, scout, doctor and sandvich. Those are the official valve videos for the game, very well done.

I paid full retail when the game came out and it was worth every penny. Now that its free you would have to be foolish to not pick it up.

A great game, truly. Love the new demo update . It was interesting to see the game evolve the way it did. Unlike most, I saw every update as a step in the right direction. Currently, I have 547 hours well wasted on that game . It is one of those games that you have to play to understand.
