I’ve had a few busy games in the last week, so this took more time than predicted. I also predict it will continue to be a little busy, but I want to finish a few more games this month. The game was an improvement over Sniper Elite V2, although I much preferred its setting. SE3 world was well designed, but something about the desert and Africa that does not entice me.

“Only two kinds of creature get fun in the desert: Bedouins and gods, and you’re neither. Take it from me, for ordinary men, it’s a burning, fiery furnace.”

Garcias

Oh, really cool quote! Where’s it from?

Charles Nonsens

It’s from the beginning of Lawrence of Arabia, in the scene where Lawrence gets the mission to seek out Prince Faisal in the Arabian desert and says it will be “fun”. Fantastic movie - and a lot of quotable material!
