    I played the demo for a while. I found it hard to get into. It is a fully online demo, if you have live give it a try. I don't plan on buying it, unless it becomes huge, in which case I will feel obligated to buy it, like Halo 2, which I do not truly enjoy, I just play so I can compete against my friends.

    yes this game looks great. I preordered it so hopefully it'll be here soon (don't normally preorder but I got $10 off Viva Pinata so couldn't resist). I don't play very many shooters but the third person adventure aspect of this game bought me. And also, to the guy above, there is a one player demo also not just the multiplayer (its a separate download though).

    Yes, I can't wait. I pre-ordered it and picking up tomorrow. It is supposed to come with a Vital Suit action figure. Not a big deal but its free.

    I absolutely loved the single player demo, I thought it was amazing when it first came out. I was really looking forward to trying the multiplayer demo, but once I got it, I wasn't into it as much as I hoped I would have been. I don't know why, just something didn't feel right.

    The only thing that disappoints me about this game is the fact that there is no co-op mode for the campaign. I really have come to find that to be my favorite part about shooters, being able to play with my roommates or friends online. Gears of War got it perfect, I was hoping for something similar. I'm surprised that co-op isn't standard on games now, it just adds that much more replay value to the game.

    I know the game with be great, but my excitement has been a little deflated since the so-so multiplayer demo and lack of co-op. I'll still end up getting it, but probably not right away.

    I'll be picking up my copy in the morning, along with Wario Ware.
    One of the few times Europe gets it a few days before you :p


    Give me a shout/invite when you see me online with it. I loved the demo's.

    Should be a killer game.



    Does that make you feel better Sky Blue ;)

    Check out Wii Sports. It too got 6.5 - but is a great game
    You liked Red Steel didn't you ? oh best not check that page, it got a 5 ;)

    Must admit the good reviews got me thinking about buying it after what I considered a so-so demo... but I think I'll err on the side of caution and rent it instead...

    Picked it up and had a good hour blast and certainy say It's better than the demo. I prefer it to GOW to be honest.

    I'll post a review after I've played more.

    Also picked up WarioWare for the Wii. :)

    For once I beat everyone to the goal with this one :p got it yesterday.

    It really is like any other WarioWare. Quick to complete, easy, insanely fun. My mum didn't understand it at all, then again she came to that conclusion from watching the Disco guys intro animation.
    The games are great, the controls work perfectly. The mini games are absurdly addictive. Multiplayer has to be unlocked (beat single player). Best title music ever, IMO.

    But it definitely won't be for everyone. The absurdity of the series peaks in this one.

    edit : I apologize in advance for bad grammar and spelling, but I'm trying to type and play the game at the same time. Damn I wish I was an octopus ;)



    Initial Impressions

    When starting the game you are prompted to update - so I did that straight away

    Menu system is minimal.

    Starting new campaign


    Intro is a mix of in-game engine cut-scene and narration with a few still images.

    Graphically this is WOW. utterly amazing with some of the best explosions and ricochet (similar to fears), All the effects, focus, blur, bloom & HDR all rendered to impressive effect at 1080i

    Audio through out is amazing score. Really cinematic orchestral opus.


    Then the game starts.

    Graphically its the same as the cut-scenes so you know its all good. With great reflection, anti aliasing etc.

    Now to mention the game is NOT easy, even on easy. I'm playing normal but it tough cookie, but not as frustratingly so as GOW

    No major spoiler here as its only the first 5-6 mins ;)

    Your inside a base with your team. and pretty soon if your fighting the beasts from the intro.

    You enter a room and it opens and it looks like a city - massive. You shoot a few flying creatures and nests, all of sudden the ground shakes. You turn around and :eek:


    The game is explosive, with some of the most impressive booms and bangs in a game.


    So far about 1 hour in - its hot. (for a game set in the cold ;) )

    Story is compelling.


    Definitely if you like action games, pick this up.

    Certainly as impressive as GOW, but I prefer the game-play here to GOW.



    A proper review shall follow, but its looking like a serious contender here folks for game of 2007 and we've only just begun.



    Haven't played Wario yet.

    additionally just discovered you can play the game if first person or third person by pressing up or down on the dpad. Nifty.

    Single player demo has 2 levels. 1 is the same level as on the multiplayer demo.

    The other is actually the first mission in the retail version. The first mission has some new features not in the demo one.

    Also they have tightened up controls It feels really intuitive now, I thought the demo was a bit clunky. not sure what they have done exactly, maybe make it more responsive ?

    ---

    co-op - unfortunetly none for the main story.

    But 2-16 player online arena modes,

    Will play multiplayer later when more people on my FL report in :)

    Looks pretty good. I'd probably pick it up...if I had a 360. Just not enough games that interest me to justify buying one (yet).
