I completed the game. It had a lot of problems. Most of them revolved around the fact that Harvey Smith and Warren Spector took a gigantic piss all over PC gamers and fans of the first game. The problems included:
1. Terrible AI
2. Broken physics
3. Awful interface and menu setups
4. Huge 36-point letters obviously made for the X-Box crowd
5. Crap level design (mostly they were too small — once again: thanks XBox!)
6. Lame ending cut scenes
7. Uninteresting music
8. Crap weapons that sounded like crap
9. You could max out your biomods 2/3 of the way through the game
10. Universal ammo. Christ what were they thinking?
11. Dumb contrivances like magical weapons fields that would turn all of your weapons off when you entered a bar.
12. Terrible engine that ran like garbage even on an ultra high end PC. I had a Radeon 9800 Pro at the time and I had to run it at 800X600 with anti-aliasing turned off. I ran Far Cry five months later with all settings on medium or high.
13. PC version of the game would minimize to the task bar between levels

The game was a disaster. It practically destroyed Ion Storm and it destroyed what could have been an excellent franchise. If Eidos wants anyone to be interested in this game at all, they had better disown that game immediately.
