Average User Score: 6.7Mar 7, 2017This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game is a slow burner and I'm growing to appreciate the differences between this and SE3. I would have rated this a classic and more of a draw from other 3rd person tactical games but for a couple of little things missing that break the immersion. I want this franchise to be so much more given the period.
1. The ability to adjust the HUD, in particular to remove the crosshairs for a smaller dot to enjoy those impressive graphics,
2. To be able to switch shoulder - it's almost a given with some developers that this is necessary in a 3rd person game for your character to be able to 'check the corners' when scouting around walls, through doorways etc.
3. The animations themselves - the weapons and Fairburne's character appear a little disproportionate. The 1911 and Grease Gun look huge in his hands, where his head looks tiny for his body, unless he's been comfort eating since Africa.
4. Weapon modifications - to be able to switch different scopes or rely on iron sights. To add a supressor to a Sten... etc
If these were incorporated into the next installment, the game would be close to perfect.… Expand

I bought in US on release date 10th June - no trolling here, just disappointment at the quality. While the positive reviews will boost the ratings, anybody who is genuinely happy with a game that looks and plays more than 10 years old is welcome to it. It isn't worth the full amount I paid. I'll bump up to 4 simply for the inclusion of the De Lisle Carbine in multiplayer as this deserves recognition in itself. Hopefully the European launch will bolster the multiplayer forum and maybe some patch releases will fix the lag. But I'm still sad this wasn't more and pushed Cry Engine. But no way is this a 10 game… seriously?!… Expand
