i got this free wit my video card and after i installed it i wouldnt run, i said "please insert the original disc not a backup" well a quick visit to my favorite no cd patch website fixed this. I find the game to be fun but a little tedious because it take so many bullet to kill some of the enemies but fun so farBut the cd glitch was the only glitch i have experienced so far.

Well tanks aren't as responsive as humans but the where a little slow. I love the tank battles though.

The tanks are definitely tough. I managed to take out 2 heli's with one though... that was sweet, they never even saw it comin. Have not done the VTOL yet. Sounds fun though.

The VTOL controls are pretty nice as it makes the ship pretty maneuverable. It can roll, slide, turn, pitch up or down.

LOl kcksteve, all you got to remember is the NYPD's unofficial motto for gunfighting:
"Two the tummy and one to the head
knocks any man down and kills them dead"

YMMV but I find it works wonders in FPS games as well

I don't know what the damage multiplier is, but headshots are truly king in this game. I've dumped a dozen rounds into soldiers before they finally stop trying to shoot back. One bullet in the head, and they're down.

Anyone run into the glitch on "ascension" where if you kill the first few bogies before you hear the second set of instructions from your pals, when you try to advance to the next evac point, the damned thing crashes every time by the dome. The crappy thing is that the better I got at killing the squids, the further away I got from doing it slow enough for it to work- finally decided to look online.

Anyone else thinking "Matrix" when they see those things?

I've found with the sniper rifle a well placed shot to the head or chest will take out a KPA np. Same with the Gaussing (sp.?) gun. One shot they're down :) Two shots for the KPA nano suit guys. Up close you gotta aim for the head and be on target. Shooting while running with the any automatic rifle in this game is less than favorable IMO. On the other hand the shot gun can be surprisingly accurate at a distance? I'm playing on "normal".
