    The game doesn't seem too complicated
    It gets more complicated. I can't get past the part where you have the bat and no guns.

    The bat with no guns part was pretty hard. I just ran out and ran up to the two guys who were walking away, beat the shizit out of them and grabbed their guns and took off. Then killed the rest of the baddies.
    Awesome game.

    Oh, HARD it sure gets. If you thought the bat sequence was hard, wait until the final chapter. There's a place where you get 5-6 guys lobbing grenades at you from above, like there's no tomorrow.

    But it's not complicated imho. The gameplay is pretty straightforward all the way.

    The ending is exactly the beginning. You know the sequence on the rooftop they show at the beginning? Well, that's the end. Well, not really. It has some more story and stuff, but you get the idea. (In fact, you'd do well to watch that starting sequence and pay attention to details, if you can't figure out how to solve the ending. It can give you just the hint. I'll stop here, 'cause I don't want to spoil it for you.)

    A nice touch is that you don't get to duke it with a 100 ft tall monstrosity of a boss like in other games. The end actually makes sense (as in: fits the Real Life setting very well), it's believable, and after I figured it out it gave me far more satisfaction than the traditional huge boss endings.

    As for the soap opera, I've watched it until the end, but I don't remember anything funky happening.

    LOL, I do really like the screwed programs on TV...like that soapopera. (BTW, she has his sister right? And he didn't know about it, right? That's soapopera allright.)

    There was another strange program about a weirdo who was speaking to a flamingo or something...

    The game is great, and those small details really make it something special.

    There's alot of cool things going on. When he breaks into that romm with the dead hooker in it you can walk into the other room and look through the camera behind the wall. Cool stuff. I stop and check everything out.

    Aye, the nightmare sequences definitely felt like a nightmare all right.

    I am still at the beginning of the game but would like to see all of these little "secrets" in the game. Has anyone found a site that has these listed and what to look for? I don't want a hints or cheats site (don't want to ruin the game), just one for the secrets...
