I have to say that the game does look amazing by looking at some screenies over in Hi-Res thread.
Without going through 14 pages i have one quick question - is the game played using only 3rd person view or you can switch around?
Apart from one small section you play in first person it's a third person game. You can go first person (kind of) in driving mode. But apparently someones working on a first person mod, and as you go first person in one section it should be possible. The veiw in the game is quite dynamic, it's over the sholder most the time, but when you press to aim, it zooms in and is more like a first person veiwpoint (basically he's not in the way). I've never found the camera angle to be bad though.
