I've just about finished it, 6 months later. I thought it very arcadish, auto aim and all. One level just frustrated me to the point I packed it up for 5 months. I've been diggin out the archives of old stuff I never finished for one reason or another and am really enjoying "Freedom fighters." It too is a cross platform release, but is challenging and lots of fun. At least you can actully aim your weapon and give meaningful orders to your team.
Now when is HL2 due out? Doom3?
