Lex,

Coming from an adventure gamer background, I like shooters that have alternate routes/methods to a goal, some exploration and puzzle solving and not just a frag fest like Doom3 or Serious Sam. Some of my faves are No One Lives Forever, Far Cry, Splinter Cell,Deus Ex I, Thief.

I am also a big fan of WWII shooter like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor and Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

I loved the atmosphere and adventuring of PoP Sands of Time, but the fighting sequences were extremely frustrating and the lack of saves did me in.

I entirely agree about PoP SoT, but much enjoyed PoP 3D: I now have PoP Warrior within , but have not yet progressed beyond the intro.

From your recommendation and other things I have read, I will have to give Splinter Cell and Thief a try.

Although I quite enjoyed the WW2 shooters you mention, I prefer something with more of an exotic or fantastic edge (hence HL and PoP). I am thinking of trying Chronicles of Riddick.

Thanks. thumbsup
