By Grabthar's hammer, this time I'm going to finish this blasted game!
I have the same sentiment for a number of games.....and sometimes(like this year with games like Jedi Outcast) I actually finish them! :D

Now playing Shadowgrounds Survivor
, a "sequel" which seems to play alongside the timeline of the first game.
Slightly shorter levels or level segments(the game only saves after a level, so this helps if one has little time to game)
Character upgrade system(with levels and skill points), with some nice upgrades to be had
Better looking cutscenes and map
Modability(haven't checked to see what mods there might be for it yet, though)
Secrets (in the form of glowing S shaped tokens one can find, which can unlock new gameplay mods and etc later on) Cons/Misc
Game automatically goes to the next level/level segment after you reach certain areas or defeat bosses
(which is a slight pain if one likes to explore every nook and cranny and find everything)
Health kits(when found) are auto used when walking over them if one's health is below 100%, even if one's health is very close to 100%....otherwise one adds them to inventory.
No PDAs to pick up(the original had text PDAs that fleshed out the world a bit more, this one has sorta audio logs/etc)
No radar at game start....it is a skill that has to be selected when upgrading Tips
Wpn upgrade tokens are found in supply crates(green crates marked ammo) now, as well as on some monsters....best to grab as many as one can and upgrade wisely.
Some good character upgrades to get are the critical hit ability(especially good for bosses and weeding through monster mobs), and the radar. There is also an "auto use health if under 50%" ability(which might also be good for more frenzied battles) & an increased health upgrade, but I haven't tried them yet.
Don't pick up health kits unless your health is either 100%(to pick them up for later use) or decently below 100%(to make them count when they're auto used).
Save grenades and wpns better than the pistol for bigger monster mobs or bosses.
1. Oi, devs, how am I supposed to get them supply crates? Sprout wings?
(more pics to come soon....also apologies for the above wall of text)
2 & 3. The parking around here is simply top notch!
(Note to self: park my own vehicle, if need be)
4. The extremely slow gate mechanism finally opens the way forward
5. Ok that doesn't seem so bad.....
(also nice cutscene)
