    Congratulations!

    This game has been awarded the most flawed first person shooter game of the year 2006!


    Eidos publishes another game which has the following annoyances:

    1) Overprotection. Buyer beware! Often the original DVD disc is recognized as an illegal copy. Some users must use a crack to get the original game working. Duh.

    2) This is the year 2006. The game hangs. First thing to get the game working is to set compability mode to Windows 98

    3) The game begins to stutter after level 5 to 7 even with the best hardware available. The performance of the game is an indicator of very poor coding skills, and severe problems of the integrity of the game.

    4) The readme of the game is explaing the errors due to the incompability of the drivers, which is very false information.

    5) Another Grand Theft Auto. Not very original idea.

    6) Finnish did the bullet time already (Max Payne)

    7) French

    Conclusion: DO NOT BUY

    It you bought it, return the game to reseller, until the immature release is fixed. I think it will never be fixed.

    This oldish poorly working badly coded copycat should be a budget game.

    Well said.
    Its a total waste of money. I have no doubt this game will soon be in the "buy three games for £10 bin".
    Sys:
    Win XP Home, SP2
    AMD FX64 Dual Core
    1024 DDR @400mhz
    ASUS A8N32 SLI Deluxe
    2x ATI X1950XTX Radeon GPUs
    250gig SATA 2 HDD
    2 x Plextor DvD Drives

    Meh, I liked it.

    Would've been nice if it had a larger budget...

    I was thinking of buying this game for PS2, but after your comments, I think I might rent it out first.

    Yeah, a lot of people didn't like it, but I did.

    Definitely rent it.

    Your complaints about compatibility mode are only in the UK version, the US version does not have this issue. The Securom issue you are describing are easily fixed by disabling any CD burning software running in the back ground or any virtual drives. There is also a way to create a analysis file to send to securom who will tell you the steps to get the game running. Contact UK support for more information.
