IGN gives both the PC (http://pc.ign.com/articles/598/598433p1.html) and Xbox (http://xbox.ign.com/articles/598/598423p1.html) versions of this game a 9.6. I really wish I didn't hate stealth games, because this thing looks really sweet.

Played the demo and thought it was a horrible, disgusting step backwards from the original Spliter Cell games. I won't be getting this god awful piece of controlling hell, thank you very much.

O... kay then, you don't buy it then. Nobody else here had experienced the horrible problems that you seem to find everywhere. I found the single player demo very fun, and the multiplayer to be a vast improvement over PT. You're entitled to your own opinion of course, but I honestly can't see where you are finding it a horrible mockery of past SC games.

I thought the demo was pretty good, but I really hope the loading isn't as bad in the actual game. First it loads the Ubi logo which you can't skip, then some Dolby logo, then loading some crap with guys talking, then a loading a trailer, load this crap, that crap, loading the kitchen sink.

Controls exactly the same as the first two games for me as well, minus the toggle for semi/full auto on the SC2k (which I was displeased that they removed).

Simon, it is unfortunate that your brain damage has now affected your motor skills, preventing you from enjoying this wonderful game. http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

why do you always go over the top? it might not be your cup of tea but its CERTAINLY not as bad as you make out. i remember you commenting on controls before aswell and they take some getting used to but once you've got a grip on them, they feel ever so right

try giving it another go...i hate for people to miss out on this game cos i REEEALLY enjoy it

There is already a patch (http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=24337) for a game that isn't released yet.
Thought that was kinda funny.

Too bad most other game developers aren't as fast to fix problems in their products.

The big question is, why don't any of the patches work for me? I'm just running the game at version 1.0, I've tried downloading the incremental patches individually and the big 1.0-1.5 patch (from several different sources) and also tried using the built-in game autoupdater. No matter where I get it from, every time I try running the patch it gives me an error about "certain game files not being in place," which I think is total BS. The game runs well for me, and I've beaten it. Short of reinstalling the game or reformatting my hard drive (which I absolutely don't want to do) is there anything else I can do to resolve the patch situation?
