hi, let me explain. Recently i've been playing this game and can't see why everyone HATES ON IT! So far i've been having a lot of fun - The setting is cool and exciting. hong kong in 2020 feels awesome. Like something out of star wars. But what i like most, is how you can approach your objective in different ways - You can sneak quietly, very quietly, or you can kill everyone... very quietly. Or you can just bring grenades and a machine gun. Being sneaky is my favourite though. Not only that, but there's an assortment of "sub objectives" that will make sneaking and shooting easier, and will make you feel smarter along the way.
Creep round the garden unseen, then whack the guard in the back, steal his radio, and tell all the secuirty forces to go home. That's how you do it. niiice.
One thing bugs me though - The story doesn't seem to make much sense. At mission 4 i am infiltrating a private mansion fortress. After deactivating radios, shotgunning guards, blowing up sattelite dishes, i enter and suddenly no guards are attacking me. I proceed and enter this room with this old man who is supposedly the CEO of datadyne, this megacorporation which is dealing in some shady buisness. I greet him blah blah blah then some woman walks in and challenges me to a fight to the death. I then beat her, and walk home. WTF WAS I DOING THERE EXACTLY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
But then, i guess it's like an action film. A bit retarded but fun and exciting nonetheless. So stop crying about how it sucks.
And while we're on the subject of crying, BAD NEWS EVERYBODY! THE HALO 3 SERVERS ARE DOWN!!! :(
