if you could some how magicly make the game engine transform from an MMO format to a FPS format it would basically solve the problem of Ground combat being the most boring thing i have ever seen in a game.
I have to agree that Third Person Ground combat really is not sufficient for this game. Also why is it that ground combat seems to lag the worst of all. Not so bad in open areas but it is absolutely horrible in enclosed areas especially infected I couldn't even play it the lag was so bad.
FPS would fix those missions when an NPC follows you so closely it seems like they're about to enact a prison **** scene, and when you go to 'Aim' all you see is their butt. Especially that creepy Section 31 guy, Drake.
