So I have been playing Cold winter on PS2 recently. Great stuff. I like first person shooters ,I really do. I loved time splitters 3 and have recently finished area 51. But this game in my humble opinion is the top dog of them all. Its a gritty shooter about an ex M.I.6 agent sent in to.......well you can find out for your self because although the story is engaging it wont really matter once you star playing. This game has all the violence you would want and then some. You can blow peoples heads off or arms or legs and then finish them off once they are down. It gives you the option to search dead guards and cabinets and draws for things you can combine in to lock picks and timed bombs and molotov cocktails. The weapons feel meaty and powerful and the enemy AI is pretty clever as well, taking cover instead of running in to your bullets when confronted. You can grab Items such as boxes crates and dumpsters and use them as shields against enemy fire, In fact you can pretty much interact with most of the games envoirment picking things up and blasting them if you wish. My only really issue is with the graphics. Because of the nature of the game it can seem a little dark and grey sometimes and also at some points(not many,) you would think that you are playing at top playstaion 1 game and not a ps2 one. However this really is a minor problem and one that does not spoil the game play. Dave.
