I am going alphabetically in my game backlog. Anything I should know? The game is never talked about. Is it still buggy? Any kinds of mods or unofficial patches? Game work better a certain way? Controller over kbm?

take pistols and a heavier weapon like rifle, because you'll need it hard come one mission (e__e), do rookie as your first playthrough's background.
Not buggy now
there are some ini tweaks out there to make it look/play a bit nicer, no mods really exist for it sadly
dunno, i only ever play with the controller (360) and it's fine with that

runner up goty for me behind New Vegas that year easily

Use a 360 controller. Remember that it's an RPG first and foremost, shooter second.

Yeah I was thinking about doing a stealthy pistol game, a la MGS. It seems like there is no point no a non-leathal playthrough though except to make it more challenging. What is the rookie class? Why would I do that? Don't you get less points or something?

And yeah I only saw some .ini tweaks, does it even make a difference? I was going to do mouse but from what I have read, the mouse controls are very wonky. Not sure if it was fixed.

If you play as the rookie then you can play as the veteran next playthrough and he gets a bunch of extra points. Controller is definitely the best way to play it.

As an RPG, the combat is in a way like Morrowind's, in that its based partly on your stats, and only partly on your ability to point the cursor. Sadly, reviewers at the time failed to grasp this simple concept.

its a great game, just dont expect the best polish and dont treat it like a shooter, but as an rpg. Also remember to specialize in atleast one firearm skill. most will say pistols, but really all the guns are pretty damn over powered once you max them.

as for controls either works fine. funny enough the hacking minigame is crap on a M/K while the lockpicking minigame sucks with a controller. so pick your poison.

Pistols are over powered in this game so it's the one everyone recommends. The first few missions will feel bad, but keep going as the game gets better. The game's story and interactive nake a choice cutscenes are nice too.

Hey guys, can you do me a favor? I tried to run the game and I get an error "Failed to start game ( missing executable )". I deleted the appcache folder, restarted, tried to verify game data ( it completes ) and it still won't run.

Can someone with Windows 8, or better yet 8.1, just launch the game and confirm it works, please? I don't want to have to download another 11gb of data...
