The gunplay is much better with the new option. Finally got a chance to finish it. Left me wanting more!

Is it sad that the thing I like most is the cutscene viewer?

Cool been wondering when the patch would come out, and this is surprisingly fairly soon. Unchart 3 has been on the on my backburner since Saints Row 3 and Assassin's Creed Revlation came out. I've only just finished the french chateau level in the single player. Time to go back.

So is the new shooting option actually better now?

Absolutely. Ironically I was already warming (or I suppose adjusting would be a better term) up to the shooting style of Uncharted 3, but man... it still feels good to be back. It's essentially been reverted back to Uncharted 2, with a much more fluid reticule and significantly easier headshots to pull off. I myself still don't really want to play through an entire run of Uncharted 3, though... the better shooting of course doesn't remedy the bad pacing of the later stages nor the less-so engaging storyline. But it's still appreciative that it's there.

From the multiplayer side of things, the blind-firing nerf is definitely noticeable, but isn't detracting too much from the number of people who still just run around blind-firing Kal-7's or Micro Uzi's for an entire match. It's much easier to counter against because of the stilted speed, though, so hopefully people will soon realise that that ridiculous tactic isn't going to keep them above water as much as it used to.

Just played a couple of gunfights from single player with the Alternate Aim Mode on and oh boy.....does it feel a billion times better. I started off playing each with the original UC3 setting and could not believe how much the reticle gets pushed away from enemies. But when I put the Alternate Mode on it felt just like UC2! Glad they fixed it, I just wish the game had shipped like that. I loved 3, but I did get really frustrated during some of the big firefights.

I'd love to go back and play MP and the story through again, but Skyrim has it's hooks in me and will for probably until Mass Effect 3....also want to get another playthrough of Mass Effect 2 in.

Finally got around to beating Crushing last night thanks to this patch. The enemies still have unholy flanking/sniping skills, but at least i could line up headshots.
