Got me Dead Space 2!
I just started playing dead space and I think the scariest thing is how hard it is to turn around. I am used to being able to whip around instantly in games, and in this one you have to be standing still or its not happening. It wrecks my nerves hearing the dead groaning from a dark corner and I need to stand still and turn around to see it.

To buy or not to buy that is the question.

Not worth it. FC2...is bad. So bad I couldnt even be bothered to finish it bad. Biggest waste of 5 bucks I ever spent.

I haven't played DS for sometime but I think you can adjust your mouse sensitivity. I just started up DS2 a few days ago and there is definitely mouse settings in there to make it as snappy as you like. Swinging around is not a problem for me. Movement overall is slower than your average combat shooter that's for sure. You can also run in DS IIRC. In DS2 you definitely can anyways.

I loved FC2 I totally finished it. The trick is to stay off the roads and get creative with your weapons. If all you do is drive from A to B and machine gun everything it gets pretty boring/repetitive. It's not without its faults but I find most people's complaints stem from driving on roads and playing it like CoD or something.

I got bored of FC2 too, but I guess it's because I did stick to the roads. It didn't feel like say, Fallout 3/NV, which encourages you to get lost, and off the beaten path. But for the time I did play it, I didn't miss the five bucks I'd spent.

I found far cry 2 to be the most boring repetative game I've ever played, story made no sense, missions were all exactly the same, fire was fun for about 5 minutes. There are much better shooters to play, not really worth the 5 or so I spent on it.
