i loved the game. both co op and single. it felt like an action spy movie. yeah it could have been longer but it was awesome none the less.

Did the complete solo and 1st co-op one so far, having fun to this point. Short but pretty sweet.

I thought the singleplayer was pretty damn good. I wasn't really digging the plot at first, but around the Lincoln Memorial things started getting a lot more intense. 
 
Only did the first mission of the co-op campaign so far but I enjoyed it too. A lot more fun to play with another person.

I don't see how anyone would choose A and not E.

I love how the missions in SP are all linked together with loading video making things seem pretty seamless.

I really enjoyed both, but on Realistic there are parts that just seem a little cheap in both. Nothing rage-inducing, but a few things that just weren't a whole lot of fun. I feel the pace of the game flows a bit better on Normal difficulty. Mostly though, I thought they were good. Stories are quite cliché, but well told nonetheless.

I absolutely HATED that scene when you enter the Third Echelon building. You can´t skip that scene and it plays every time you fail in the next 2-3 Minutes. "I´m Sam Fisher. I used to work here." Pretty darn cool the first time, but really annoying the second and third time.

lol i think I watched that about 10 times.  I played through on Realistic my first time and towards the end of the game there were a few controller throwing moments for me.

I really liked the single player.  The story actually had me interested.  I can say that no other SC game has done that.  I still have to play the co-op with a friend though, but I've heard really good things.

Tell me about it. Trying to play through it in one sitting on Realistic my first time really seemed like a bad idea at 4am when I was dead tired and had to watch this damn cutscene multiple times. Lets not even get into the VP/Ballroom scene.

Yeah.... I have to agree with that. I was doig it on realistic too and I saw that cut scene too many times. But one I understood that you don't have to hurry up. I was much easier. The rest of that level was wicked!
