Actually,i do really love this game especially for the lady's party,i think this part of the game is outstanding,the ambiance inside the castle is just amazing,because of the music,the design,brightness,costumes,i think it's one of the best "electronic art" (LOL -.-) i have ever seen... Seriously
What a great game, I'm only 3 levels in, and so much of it just works so right, moving your character, you're rarely hung up on obstacles and you can go almost anywhere. On the flip side, the AI (so far) is predictable and repetitive. The one neat thing is the level design and enemy locations, not too easy but not too difficult to get around. I'm going at it stealthily for the first playthru, try for that Flesh & Steel achievement.
I don't know whats the problem with enemy AI,once,i decided to mod the AI of crysis 1,i managed to make it super agressive and really deadly,I also don't know what is the problem with the enemy view range,if i was the enemy AI,i would see the player like the wart on my nose.
Just finished my first play through today. Played stealthy, avoided killing, except for Havelock - I intentionally blew his head off with my gun.
Great game, one of my favorites over the last couple of years - felt totally immersed in the story.
I did the non-lethal routes for most targets:
High Overseer Campbell - branded him so he'd be seen as a traitor (ruin his life is better than killing him in my opinion)
Pendleton twins - figured I'd spare their lives, went for SLackjaw's deal to have them sent to a mining camp where they'd labour the rest of their lives (figured since Lord Pendleton was their brother that I'd spare their lives - next play, now that I know what happens in the end, I won't spare them)
Lady Boyle - she was just the "mistress", she didn't do anything wrong I didn't think
Lord Reagent - I figured it was better punishment to publicly expose him and have him locked away - figured if I just killed him no one would know what he did.
Daud - I fought him then let him live. He was "for hire" and was doing a job. He honestly seemed like he regretted it from the notes in his room and what he says when pleading for his life. Plus I thought he was cool.
In the end sequence (lighthouse island) I didn't look for Pendleton or Martin, just went right for the lighthouse. You find them dead anyways when you come across Havelock - I assume he killed them. ANd as I said above I decided to kill Havelock - I figured he's powerful enough, and a leader (since he's an Admiral) that he'd be too dangerous to leave alive and maybe go after Emily.

As I said, I got totally immersed in the story!
