    Yeah, i have. Dont know what all the fuss was about really, its pretty average so far.

    Run around corridors shooting nazis, then run around corridors shooting zombies and mummies. Hardly ground-breaking stuff. Maybe it'll get better later on.

    Yeah, not revolutionary. However, the multiplayer is pretty intriguing, becasue its basically always assault. Another MP mode is a domination variant.

    Sounds like I expected it to be :
    I told you so ... ;) :p

    Any idea if there's going to be a single-player demo ?

    And are there any decent bots in multiplayer ?

    Pretty far into the *very average* game. It doesnt suck you in at all! The graphics are not groundbreaking, the gameplay is very dull, no suprises whatsoever. Shoot this, steal that, blow it up, blablabla...
    If you were to buy a fps for this year you better get No One Lives Forever or Undying. Both MUCH better in *all* expects!

    I thought the idea behind the game was to relive the original with standard (or sub-standard being it's using the Q3 engine) graphics. Sure, the graphics aren't better than Doom 3, but they're certainly better than the original. It's a tongue-in-cheek game, people.

    Isn't that a bit of a contradiction? :con:

    I haven't seen any signs of bots for multiplayer - odd now that I think about it.

    The enemy AI is pretty nice. They duck for cover, sound alarms, investigate if they think they see you. Unfortunately, there haven't been too many surprises so far, but I'll keep after it.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!

    Notf is one of the best fps I've ever played. It's funny, inovating, beautifull and nice plotted(?) ... really enjoyed it!
    RtCW though....blech

    Yeah NOLF was ok. RTCW reminds me a bit of a dull version of NOLF.

    Well, I thought NOLF had below par graphics and didn't do anything new at all. I admit it was fun to play, but it was a pretty average game overall. I definitely wouldn't call it one of the best FPS's I've played. Each to his own I guess ;)

    As for RTCW, I'll think I'll wait for the SP demo before deciding to fork out for it

    Dont tell me the "aaaaargh-i-gotta-get-that-parachute-of-the-back-from-the-guy-below-me-while-I-get-shot-at-by-other-bad-guys" wasnt fun!

    But it's true, each to it's own!

    grrr....;)

    and what about the beginning, defending that deaf guy who keeps losing his dime, or the guy who wants to sell his monkey all game long, brilliant!
    But let's talk Undying, cause WOW! That was one freaking gooooood game. Absolutely horrifying! Anyone got it?

    I'm buying rtcw for it's multiplayer. How many online maps are there?
    Undying never does it for me. It's fun for a while but not that scary. NOLF however rocks big time.

    Beach = mp_beach
    Depot = mp_depot
    Village = mp_village
    Das Boot = mp_sub
    Communique = mp_base
    Assault = mp_assault
    Castle = mp_castle
    Destruction = mp_destruction

    I think they can be played for objectives or as a domination like game.

    8 mp maps... considering the beachmap didn't even get a little repetitive, it's gonna be a long while.
