So who did everyone like or dislike?

I really liked most of the characters which I didn't expect. The only one I didn't care for much was Sean Darcy. Ironically enough, I had decided to go for an almost exclusively Suave playthrough so he ended up liking me anyways. I wonder what his relationship stat affects since you fight him near the end and kill him.

Marburg steals the show regarding conversations though. Seriously, that conversation when you first meet him was just beautiful. Same when you have your final shoot-out with him, after you take his health down a bit. You can call him out on some of the stuff in his dossier and the verbal smackdown that Mike gives is just glorious.

Steven Heck was a lotta fun as well but it was probably a mistake to bring him along to a mission where I wanted to stealthy, haha.

EDIT: Forgot about Henry Leland which was just the smug bastard I wanted him to be. The conversation when we finally "catch up" to the flash-forwards is great. And it was satisfying to put a bullet right through his eye (ouch).

Marburg and Leland were excellent.

I dunno if it was only because of the choices I made, but I thought some characters didn't get enough 'screen'time.

Heck Kinda grew on me, at first i was kind of a **** to him....yet he seemed to like it. Start of a beautiful friendship ended with him running through the endgame with me.

Leland was amazing, just the right type of villain for the game. I hated Marburg in a good kind of way, manipulative bastard. Albatross was my favorite group leader by far, gained all the possible rep with him.
Heck was okay, but something just didn't click with him for me.

Mocking Marburg at the cafe in Rome with the suave/smartass responses was awesome, childish, but awesome ;)

Albatross and Sis were really cool if you get on their good side, as was Scarlet in the end if you find out everything about her :)

I didn't know SIS was a mute until, well she never spoke! Which is really cool, not alot of characters in video games are mutes. Also I really like her design, style, weapon choices, everything. I would romance her if I could. Too bad she is a mute =(

Albatross is one of the best written characters I have come across in a video game for a while. There was also a conversation between Michael and Leiland (during Moscow) that was incredibly well written.

^I think she likes aggression.

I enjoyed the back-and-forth between Thorton & Leland. Reminded me of the one between Bond and Blofeld. The talks with Marburg reminded me of Auric Goldfinger. Good stuff.

SIE is freakin' hilarious. I treated her aggressively when I first met her at the trainstation, she loved that. Then when you meet up with her again, I attacked her. When the fight was over, we basically "made up". After that, I have SIE's kneepad sitting in my safehouse and I get an e-mail where she says that she's studying her naked body in the mirror, fascinated with the scars from the shootout.

And then when you have her as a handler for the Embassy mission. I laughed when, in the middle of all the action and explosions, I hear SIE starting to hum Ride of the Valkyries excitedly in my earpiece, hahaha.

Hmmm, I found pretty much that all the characters were fleshed out pretty good.

Whoever said "More Sis", hear...hear!


SIE is just...well plain nuts, Brayko...gotta ask a buddy of mine if he did any modeling for Obsidian since he looks EXACTLY like that guy. *chuckle*, Heck the Sociopath was fun too. Dunno I kinda love meeting all the weird, crazy people in games.

Well, after having the "romance" scene with SIE... I think all romances in all games from here on out will feel lackluster, haha.

I liked the old pornstar; Madison St. James the most (simply because she's normal! - and apparently hot) and I also like Scarlet a lot too.

Nah, it was SIE.
"Let real man handle this." Priceless...

I liked Mina in the final part, mainly because she shot Scarlet!

Steven Heck, damn... just like Atton, but in a very different and good way. I love him.

Also Marburg, that Russian mob. His voice actor is excellent - he perfectly delivers the tone for that character.

Brayko for his attitude, and his badass behavior.

Scarlet for... being female. :- But, seriously, I just really liked her character: it felt believable and realistic.

Sie was cool in that way she was mute: fascinating and unique. Sometimes, it felt that she was actually speaking. Good writing!


I'd love to see the characters I missed, like that German-Russian girl in Moscow. I never encountered her.

How did you not encounter SIE?? You missed a good pile of LOLs!
BTW, she's not Russian, just German.
