Look at that cover, it's fucking kickass, like in the vein of Doom's cover art.

We have the hero jumping out of the water, leaping into action, brandishing his machete at the foul beast before him as vicious piranhas chomp after him.

Also the lighting & shadow, the coloring, it's fantastic.

I think the Powerslave art deserves special mention for being a very accurate portrayal of what you'll see in the game. The only real mistake is giving the guy a shotgun instead of an M60. I think it's cool how they actually show him with multiple weapons strapped to him though. There's in-art game that's even better with him carrying like 6 guns on his back.

That was pretty good overall for a hammy action romp and it did a number of little things that other games could have learned from. Enemies figuring out you were an actual threat and fleeing to get backup, regional based damage based on individual armor values, being able to mess with the environment and objectives to affect things in future levels.

Half Life may be called influential but people really should have pay more attention to what SiN did.

I haven't played it since I was a kid, but I remember loving the first level, but always quitting at some stupid stealth mission. It may have even been the second mission. Maybe its not as bad as I remember, but I remember it being complete bullshit that shouldn't have been in an FPS.

Everyone around me praises this game so much.

I tried to get into it, I really tried, several times too.
Every time I get thrown off due to how slippery gameplay is. I can't stand how bullets are actually projectile (versus hitscan), and quite slow projectiles at that too. It makes the game unfun and feel like everything is happening a second after it should. Plus, moving and mouse aiming feels slippery too, no matter how I configure it.

It looks like it could be a good game, plus Levelord did tons of level in it, but if the base shooting isn't fun, whole thing won't be fun.

The stealth mission wasn't bad and reasonably decent for its time.

What killed that level was the unpatched version of it:
At the start of it you'd see a short cutscene of the receptionist of the lab walking to her office but that sequence wasn't in a separate room but played inside the level right in front of your starting position.
If you skip the cutscene you'd spawn into the level but the receptionist won't be teleported to her desk and will still be wherever she was when you skipped the cutscene which is exactly in your line of sight in most cases.
This results in her imidiately sounding the alarm and rendering the level unwinnable.

What on earth does that have to do with anything? He didn't say "this is why the game wasn't successful," he said why he doesn't like it. Can you read?

I played SiN long after release and didn't think much of it--yeah I can see how the features were cool for the time, but nothing about it grabbed me. It's alright but there are better old FPS games to play. The shooting seemed fine to me though.

I love it too, but there are a few things that really annoy me:
-Rats and hands are hard to aim for and do way more damage than they should
-The minimap doesn't show the necessary key for each door, so navigation is confusing. I got pissed off the most in the abandoned mansion level.
-Voodoo doll runs out of ammo way too fast to be viable
