Well I have not played the previous games I was lucky enough to try this game out. So I went out and bought it. I installed it and played around. The graphics is amazing. The gameplay is very fun. The story is very compelling though. I think over in all this game is very worthy to add to my collection of pc video games. Everything clicks too. I have also never seen a game like this to really exceed with all the embellishments and that crazy but still excellent first person view point. It took me while to learn to play it but the time spent was worth it.
