      It's even more ridiculous than that in Blacklist, whenever you're in darkness it's not just the googles that light up now but various parts of the sneaking suit start twinkling green as well! They actually light up to tell you you're in darkness. Somehow the bady guys pretend not to notice...

      I'm really not liking the new voice actor who replaced Michael Ironside either. If the game had been a total continuity reboot it might have worked, but this game is very much linked to the story of the previous game so it makes the change seem really odd. Also, Fisher's 3D model actually looks older for once, which in one sense is a nice change from the previous games where he seemed to be aging backwards, but it's totally at odds with the new, younger voice!

      Still, I also got Wonderful 101 and it's fantastic!
