I've messed around with this game finally for a little bit (no time, no time!)...and I have to say, its reaching the point of being just a little too absurd in the "frantic pacing department". I knew the game was gonna be over the top, but right now its so fast-paced that I really wasn't enjoying anything I was doing, and I died. A lot. I mean, a lot. This is both good (if you are playing stupid), and bad (no lean, 10 enemies all drawing a bead on your location at the same time, etc).
Its almost like you don't get to enjoy the gun-porn because you are always getting shot at from all sides by ever-appearing enemies. Its just a little too much sensory overload for me....great game but I wish they'd let me enjoy my killing a lil' bit more
