This game rocks. : ))  


It's a slower paced version of DC IMO, but with more realistic effects/weps.

Well, saving for a new video card :(   Mine runs it but looks like crap.  In multiplayer, do the deaths turn into cross/buriel site also or is that just in single version?  lol, not sure If i like that in the game.

Happens in the game too, and you can pick it up of course.

It's kind of a give away, say you're snipeing a common traffic area. If I seen a pile of bodies, I would go around. ehhe

How is the sniping in the game... realistic (ie breathing patterns and such)

Yes.

-The crosshairs sway with breath.
-There is no distance allowance. i.e.. raising the aim
-Speed allowance. i.e.. you must lead the target

Rather than that, it's down to find nice cover and never staying in one spot, unless the death cam is off. I have only found 2 servers (no idea of the IP address) which have it off. Otherwise when you shoot someone, your crosshairs point right to the person giving their postition away.  I've tried looking at the server info in the in-game browser and I never see the cvar for it, so I look for server that have short spawn times and free cam movemnt.  This method doesn't allow the crosshairs to point at you and if they're fast enough, they can look around and find you. But if the spawn time is low enough, they will not have time to find you.

FYI- The booby traps suck in this version.  You can run across one and it take 2-3 seconds to explode, barely causing damage. Even if you stand beside it, it doesn't kill you.   So If I use that player, I will use the traps to cover my 6.  If I hear'em explode, I know someone is coming up behind me. :>
