Coincidentally, I just got there and just down the helicopter on the second try but then the seventh mercanery killed me. I am loving the game though. Edit: I should add that I am playing on Easy or as K9 calls it "Noob".
Since getting my new m9750, I decided to start playing older games that were too taxing for my old computer. This way I will still be dazzled by the performance and be even more dazzled by the time I work my way up to Bioshock. Maybe by the time I get to Bioshock, the driver situation will have stablized and any bugs will be worked out.
In the last few weeks I have played for the first time:
Company of Heroes
HL2: Episode One
Unreal Tournament 2004
5% of Far Cry
UT04 was unlike anything I played before, a Frag Fantasy Island. Far Cry's beautiful, serene and realistic tropical forest background is a fun contrast to UT04's sci fi fantasy manic battle fest. I like them both.
