After being used to games where patience is not the key criteria of the game, it takes a while to adjust to a game like this. At first I was getting bored of waiting but the success to a game like this is not just the game play and the visual/audio quality... but it's the story.

It's crafted like a sad hero type of movie with a happy ending. I've played through it a second time on the hardest difficulty and it was actually quite easy. Not sure if it's got enough to make me go after those achievements but I think it's worth a play.
The good thing about the campaign is that there's variety in the missions, so thumbs up for that! The Co-op campaign was a nice bonus too. Sam Fisher looks like a well built macho George Clooney!
