    So whats the likelihood of H & D 2 getting released on Friday?

    Do you think this will be the most immersive tactical shooter ever?

    Should be interesting.

    My orders been sent should get tomorrow. It's getting good reviews everywhere so should be fun. Hope it's not as buggy as the first one though.

    Well I have it. The game takes up nearly 2.5 GB of Hard drive space. The Intro movie is a masterpiece.

    So I'm now off to save Europe from Harry Hun, with Mad calvert, Bumbly Carstairs and The Badger.

    The excitements a killer.

    I've played it for a good few hours today. Basically I would say its much the same as the original gameplay wise with improved graphics, a revised tactics interface and so far no bugs!

    I'm enjoying it anyway :D not tried it multiplayer yet either.

    Well, I'm on the second campaign (on normal skill) and I finding it quite addictive. Great graphics and excellent atmospheric soundtrack and sound FX's.

    Best of all is the refined interface and improved AI. Don't fire and stay put. They'll pinpoint you co's of your muzzle flash, for example.

    Like the way that sometimes the enemy will surrender if it runs out of ammo. Haven't taken any yet :D

    The biggest improvement is the way your mens skill increase as they are used during a campaign. I even won an MC!

    For me it's the game of the year.

    How is it going playing this?

    Is it easy to command your men to do things?

    I think the game is excellent,but there are still quite a few bugs which need ironing out.One annoying example of this is the first mission in the second campaign;after taking out a whole airport full of enemies,you are supposed to locate some documents which spawn randomly;unfortunately there seems to be a bug where the docs dont always spawn correctly and you have to start the whole mission again:mad: As enjoyable as these missions are,repeating them over and over again does wear a little thin.

    There are also quite a few issues with crashing in multi player,but apart from the bugs I think the game is excellent,and apparently there is going to be a patch released this week which will hopefully iron out a lot of these bugs:D

    I'm currently at 2nd campaign mission 4. I have to defend the Oasis at night, and frankly it really scares the crap out of me?

    Any advice on placement of men and booby traps, tactics and generally not getting massacred!
