Now that we've hopefully got all the naming jokes out of our system, I'd like it if they took the series in a direction more like the first than the second. The second kind of felt like Fear meets Modern Warfare, especially with the engine basically dropping the whole realtime shadows bit (or at least it felt like it did).
The first is a timeless classic I still have installed and speak highly of whenever the opportunity arises, while Fear 2 was something that was a good two day distraction, only to be purged off my hard drive once completed.
I remember when Driv3r came out and I was in a Gamestop getting something (I forget, but it wasn't Driv3r) and some guy asked for Drive-three-r. As in, he pronounced the 3 in the middle. Now I always think of that when I'm reminded of Driv3r, although that's not often.
This game and Thi4f should totally hang out sometime.
I don't think they can screw up the gunplay more than they did with Project Origin. Maybe they'll lay off the screen flash effects for this one. Ya know, realise that doing that a million times over will only give people a headache and ruin the effect. If they can get back to the gunplay of the first game maybe I'll check it out.
So how long until they show off Condemn3d? I'm sure they'll somehow turn that into a FPS.
