Well I cheated a little last night and got it early. The game is a mix of splinter cell/Mass Effect. Near future settings with the atmospheric feeling of Blade Runner. The story line is pretty good so far, a little predictable, but still good. If you liked the first one this one rocks. I'm playing it more stealth than run-n-gun and it's proving to be a challenge. The only complaint so far is the loading times are out of control. I moved it to SSD and it still takes a while to load. Pretty good game though, worth the purchase if you like splinter cell / mass effect. Good action RPG.
