NecroVisioN: Lost Company is supposedly shorter and less buggy than the original, and I'd say that is the way to go. The levels are constructed well, there are some ooh nice vista moments. Many of the assets, models, animations, etc, are quite nice. The engine is pretty good for the release date. But the game is completely ludicrous. Not just the basic premise of weaponized occult monsters in World War I. The crazy ragdolls, frequent small glitches/anomalies and laughable accents and b-movie plot all make the proceedings quite comical. And with regen health, it seems very hard to die until late in the game when you get swarmed (man of courage). I believe this is to encourage you to charge ahead and do kicking and melee combos. Which are fun. It's a goofy, pretty fun game. Lost Company has an interesting mix of World War 1 super guns, melee, dual wielding and occult powers. If you are an fps completionist freak, enjoyed Painkiller, Dead Effect, Chaser, or other silliness along those lines, you'll probably be happy with this, especially on sale. If you have proper self respect, you should play some of the new Wolfenstein games, DooM, or Unreal Tournament, or watch Breaking Bad, read a book, go outside, hug a loved one XD. I'm reccomending this, but beware, you will be left with bemusment but also ennui.
