    Big download, looks nice, but will wait for reviews.

    Good movie, not as good as The Departed though.

    Any clue what the price will be once the $.99 tag comes off? Hate for this game to be awesome and jump up to $3.99 or something once I finally decide I want it.

    As soon as I started the game:

    - Very polished interface (really) including a nice background music
    - Profiles
    - Options: Sound Vol / Vibration / Calibration / Invert Aim
    - Interactive tutorial (includes spoken narrative)
    - Two Modes: Story and Arcade (which is locked)
    - In the main menu there's also a Medals item

    Starting Story mode:

    - Great mission presentation including spoken dialogs (that's a really nice touch)
    - First you use binoculars to see where enemies are (take a good look): you have to align two red circles in order to find the right spot; once found you click fire (bottom right) to go to the sniper mode
    - You tilt to aim (not so easy and it should not be in fact); wind is a factor to consider; hold your breath (bottom left button) to stabilize for some seconds; then shoot! You have also to reload which I found very nice
    - Some enemies are easy to shoot but the last one was hidden... Well I don't want to spoil anything here; the fact is that targets are not always just standing there waiting for a shoot
    - When they start to shoot back then you have to hurry up and find all of them (game gets interesting)
    - You have to finish a mission in a given time

    Conclusion so far:

    I didn't even finish the first mission but I'm quite impressed with this game for only $0.99. Great production, graphics, sounds, background sounds, spoken dialogs, awesome user interface. It's really nice.

    The only thing that annoys me a bit is the fact that the game has a "loading" time when you switch from the binoculars to the sniper.

    It's too early to rate but if I had to do it right now (after playing a few minutes) I'd give it 5/5. :)

    Thanks for the review Carlos, top notch as always.

    That's good enough for me, add another application to my backlog. ^ ^
