I mean, it was one of the best FPSs I've played in some time, and for a lot of reasons. Great setting, good voice acting, interesting gameplay and, most of all, you can see your own body when looking down. =P Seriously, I don't get why it didn't get better reviews. What is so bad about it that I'm missing?
Well, I for one really liked it as well, but then again I *am* really dumb, so I'm probably not the best one to ask.
At any rate, you most definitely want to give the sequel -Bound in Blood- a try: It's everything that was good in the first one, only better in every aspect, and it even removes a couple of annoyances. About the only thing you could maybe complain about is the fact that it would seem to be all kinds of set up for coop play, and yet there's nothing of that. But if you liked the first one you're most likely gonna love it.
I have played and completed many FPSs in my life. But when an FPS starts with a stealth mission I can't complete, then it's not my type of game.
Seriously, did anyone actually enjoy playing as Billy and going through this impossible stealth thing?

Billy's stealth missions (along with the whole of Billy, in fact) are one of those things that I mentioned that have been removed in the sequel. The opening cutscene even makes a little joke about it.

I gotta say I wasn't that bothered by Billy's stealth missions. I don't know if my version of the game was made easier or something, but I didn't get stuck on them, I had more trouble with shooting portions of the game (due to the fact that I avoid quicksaving during a level). I actually enjoyed the stealth missions, but if even the developers joked about it, I guess I have a weird taste. =P

I think they changed the stealth in a patch. I liked both gameplay styles equally, but that one Billy section with the Indian and the mountain was too long and too boring.

Unfortunately the sequel doesn't run on my computer. An event is not triggered during the very first, introductory mission, and I can't continue. Very weird.
