Looks fantastic, but "from the developers of Bioshock 2" is not a positive thing in my eyes.

This has gotten my attention now that it's no longer a FPS.

Well the 60's is an era that is not overly done in games, so that is a good start. A Tactical Third Person shooter also sounds great, I will be keeping an eye on this. I have only played the demo for the latest X Com but I wasn't overly keen if I'm honest, I know it's a completely different type of game to The Bureau though, or I gather it is.
You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.

Looks like they used Mafia II's engine....I like the idea of this game and the trailer was cool.

Hehe, I was thinking the same thing! Still, Mafia 2 is one of my all time favorite games, and X-com was great, so this could turn out to be a real gem!

This game got a bad rap very early on when a lot of people (understandably) confused it with the new Xcom, thinking that Xcom was being rebooted as a just another trendy FPS. Now that the new Xcom is successfully out (still as a turn-based tactical shooter- thankfully) this can have a real chance. I hope they do the franchise proud and theres some reason to be hopeful.

From the makers of BioShock 2... *blacked out by marker pen*

Hell, even 2K Marin want us to forget that game...

Oh good, hopefully this means I can start looking forward to this again! Obviously I'll wait for reviews. Pre-order bonuses are just a way to bump up day one sales.

Speaking of which, if you look very closely a the police car, it looks very similar to the one from mafia II
