This is one of those cases where it is hard *not* to get your expectations set unrealistically high … and part of me cynically expects it to be released and be all bright and shiny and have cool stuff that will have PC Gamer emblazoned with a 95% 'GOTY' label with their 'exclusive' review - only to realize after playing that it is all flash …

… and I'm using that cynicism to temper my expectations … I'm just hoping for a decent shooter, perhaps with some RPG-lite elements and a tight and linear and heavily scripted story that pulls me by the nose from gorgeous set-piece to gorgeous set-piece …
