    I think this is my favorite xbox game ever. It had all my favorite elements, action, story, artistry, water, horror, rpg, a shooter, a good save process, low frustration level, and a sense of being. It was the first time since the psychonaut game I saw real creativity and artistry in a video game. Loved it. And I think they have room for improvement which is the scary part. I also think it is going to give Halo and Gears of War some ideas for improvement too.

    From what I have read, the ending is MUCH better if you save them.

    Game is amazing, but I have not had much time to play it or pretty much anything for that matter.

    Once I got to like level four, I realized I easily could have missed a lot of stuff. I finished it up, and now I'm backtracking and checking it all out and you see a lot of stuff you missed. There is some decent replay value.

    ^ what kind of stuff ?

    like al the litle extra rooms and stuff ?

    I found alot of nooks and crannies in Acadia in the Gardens (like 4 passages only accessable by crawlspace)

    stuff like that

    i haven't bought much stuff from the vending machines, but I usually get 'enhancements' from the Gene Garden machines (plasmids / tonics) etc
    and I've found a dozen tape machines I wouldn't have found if I just followed the goals
