It’s a game beloved by CHUD honcho Nick Nunziata, the Atlanta contingent and a kazillion other gamers, but not me, who got bored halfway through the single-player game, have no interest in fighting others on 1/4th of my television, and feel first-person shooters are meant to be played with a mouse and keyboard instead of two coordinated thumbs.
