you should get it on sale if you don't own it yet. you can switch between first and third person mode with a button, and change difficulty on the fly. there's a free HD texture pack as well as fan made enhancements, and fan made mods that make this game do crazy things. there's no reason to not get it. even at $40 it has more content in it than other games at that price range. i've played 1 sidequest series of missions that had so much, it would have been 1 whole game on its own if it was from other studios.
