    First I need to play "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego downloading". Switzerland seems nice.

    Please don't crash and burn Steam

    35,000 is a step up from 200(pre announcement players*, not mod release day players ).

    *Players, not people waiting for AS:I

    I like the tracking of stats. And the post map breakdown, too. Very nice.

    Congrats Black Cat Games, it's not a disappointment Total kickass and graphics-wise so pretty!

    The only bugs I encountered were the intended kind. Well, at one point after a player death the audio crackled oddly for a bit but it resolved itself then. I had no trouble hosting a listen server throughout the campaign and apparently nobody had trouble playing on it. Where's the Queen?

    Funny how it's a completely different engine and all but it feels completely like back in the saddle again.

    Insane difficulty seems like a must though... and more maps/campaigns please

    Oh, and I can't even begin listing all the improvements in usability and so on... There aren't even any platformer sections! Just have to once more thank you for the awesome work this is!
    My cats are black! How about yours?

    The only thing that I sort of miss (apart from Flynn) is that it takes forever to encounter your first parasite. In comparison to "Reactor", AS2010's opening level seems rather pedestrian. Even the elevator part (an obvious reference) doesn't feel even remotely as intense and climactic as its original counterpart. It's still cool, but, I dunno, something's lacking...

    But the rest is great.

    I never played the original mod, but this is by far the best free game I've ever played (not saying much), but its also one of the best games I've played in a long while. I can't get enough of it and I love that the missions themselves are quite short, means lots of action can happen in a short time and it makes it manageable if you just want a quick game, rather than having to set aside about an hour.

    Again, thank you!
