Right, I bought this game back at launch and had a blast playing through it. I've been meaning for a while to have another playthrough and never got around to it, but I'm getting the itch now.
I've heard that this game has one of the best branching storylines around, with major differences depending on how you play the game. On my playthrough I played each situation as I saw it, generally adopting either a suave or professional approach from teh three basic styles for the most part. What I was wondering was, whether there is any point in only ever picking one response style all the time (roleplaying a character, so to speak) or does this hem you in or restrict you in any particular ways?
I realise that there's probably no right way to do it, but just looking for some general feedback really. Any advice greatfully received...
After my first play-through I decided to explore the decisions that seemed a bit rash. Like, sometimes I would zone out a bit or make a snap decision and regret it afterwards. So I played my second timeand took what I enjoyed doing and carried it on and changed what seemed weird to me or what I felt didnt fit with the character I wanted to create. I've refined it now so I can play through the game in a way I know will finish awesomely for me-I feel bad now if I deviate from my own storyline!
Get Albatross on your side, if you haven't already. Really helps out. Delete the spyware in Taiwan, don't kill Sis and rescue him from Brayko.
Get it ooon with all the chicks (harder said than done in a single playthrough). To get extra points on Mina, don't trip any alarms in Saudi Arabia, take out Shaheed's elites bt stealth and spare even the most hateful enemies. It'll give you some buffer for when you choose Madison as your handler in Rome.
Also, try to **** off Steven Heck, just for kicks. He is a foul mouthed idiot when you gain his antipathy, but he'd worth some good laughs.
