My memory of the levels is sporadic.

I will say this, I am playing it on Normal and I definitely feel its more challenging than the original at the same difficulty.

I am really enjoying it too. I was just thinking it couldn't have looked or played like this back in the day. The acid/blood splatter is great. All in all so far I think they did an amazing job.

Getting blood spatter on your gun and hands from close encounters with zombies is pretty sweet. I also noticed it seems to be more difficult. Damn marines seem to have aimbot hacks. It is basically impossible to have a 1 on 1 open area encounter with a rine without taking damage.

This is like when they remade goldeneye through source and made it free. Nothing beats the original.

Eh.

I only played an hour of it last night. I always either love a game, or totally write it off within an hour.

I wouldn't say it beats the original, as that had the wow factor, it came from no-where and blew everything else out of the water, but my god it's very close.

So far I have no problem with the changes made and was happy to see ammo and guns were harder to find. I found some higher tier guns farther in the game then I had before.

I am still trying to get out of the compound. I got stuck at a part where I have to jump across boxes. I keep missing the last jump, so I got mad and minimized the game. Maybe tonight I will try again and hopefully get past that section.

And so should so many other games. Co-op vs the CPU is awesome.

Sprint, jump, crouch. When sprinting you have to jump earlier then normal.
