And agin, I don't mind any game mechanic, even an overused one, being used it it is appropriate. Obviously, a Matrix game would be broken without it. And there's that new John Woo game coming out starring Chow Yun Fat...bullet time should
be part of that game because it meshes with Woo's film presentation. IIRC, Doom 3's expansion had it as a special power, but it wasn't always
available. But again, I come back to games like FEAR...I can't think of a reason for bullet time in that game. He's not wearing a special suit, it's not a special power up, and the game isn't trying to mimic any movie genre I've ever seen before. So I just don't get it.
