I'm surprised nobody created a topic on this yet, considering that the game has been out for a couple of days now.

I love the game, though the mechanics took a bit of getting used to (never been a real cover based shooter gamer) and the melee combat was not quite what I was expecting. The graphics are better than I had anticipated, judging from gameplay trailers and the pre-release banter that claimed that the graphics were slightly under par.

The game is very unforgiving (especially in the early stages), one tiny slip-up will get you pumped full of lead really quickly. As such, it isn't surprised that I have found the head-on-combat approach to be less succesfull then the stealth-based-wall-hugger approach (it does miracles, I suggest you try it).
