Brilliant so far. The gameplay is pleasingly varied. Very linear, but it doesn't feel restrictive. You get a great feeling of the consequences of your actions, unlike the other 'living city' game. The best description for the gameplay is GTA3, but with Max Payne segments mixed in. The game looks as good as both of those classics, and is littered with picture perfect building interiors and cityscapes, including tunnels, autumn country roads and some of the best shadows I've ever seen. Shoot outs in churches, on rooftops, hotels, warehouses, abandoned gas-stations, and one spectacular shotgun shootout at a farm during a thundery-night, complete with background lightning and swaying trees! This is probably the best game I've played since MOH:AA. Great voice actng. Great engine. Great stuff. A definite recommended purchase.
