Yeah I had a similar thought. From what I've seen the gameplay looks like it's mostly running around at night inside a Stephen King novel, shining torches at things and shooting them in the head. Deadspace might also be a little too similar.
I'm not a huge military shooter fan beyond the Half-Life games so I'm in no hurry to try out Crysis 2...plus I worry it might make my PC catch fire.
Not sure if I'm of the mindset to get into a deep RPG series like Witcher right now, so I'll probably try 'Brutal Legend' next (thank you Humble Bundle!) It's a 'Double Fine' game and looks pretty light hearted and colourful. Oh and it has Lemmy in it!
