Same old, same old, they will never fool me again with these videos .... fell into that trap already with GRAW 1 not gonna happen again. To me, it looks, feels and plays just like the original.

Finding it really hard to see what was funny about my comment ? but you go ahead and buy the game. .....I know I wont. The game has hardly evolved and for this reason it doesnt justify spending another £40 for what seems to be the same game. That's my opinion and feel free to disagree. Virtua Tennis 3 is a much better purchase for me personally.

Hope that purchase works out for you... frankly Ghost Recon series has never been perfect, but it offers some of the best online multiplayer on Xbox LIVE, and has the best features on Xbox Live. For games like GOW, having great multiplayer gaming, its options are totally lacking, and I'm afraid that a game like Viritua Tennis 3 could have wonderful gameplay, although no Sega game has shown me they know how to set up a good multiplayer lobby system, except for the 2K series of sports titles. I don't think Virtua Tennis falls under the 2K series umbrella or not. GRAW 2 is more of the same just like GRIT was more of the same of GR1, and GR2 Summit Stike was to GR2. If someone is expecting something a step ahead, then yes, you should skip GRAW2. If you want GRAW1 with more enhancements, features and polish, then this game will not dissappoint. £40 is a lot, and I hope Virtua Tennis pans out for you.

Final word... Ubisoft and the Tom Clancy series are setting the bar for online multiplayer features and gameplay on Xbox 360, till Halo3 comes out.

I agree with you mostly although I think Gears has raised the bar when it comes to mutiplayer. Sure the options are extremely limited but the transition between Single player to multiplayer has been incredible, a quality all of the tom Clancy trio games did not manage to even come close to achieving especially when it comes to graphics!
What bugs most about them is the fact that they feel like two games, An incredible Single player experience which instead of being toped off by a delicious cheery is plagued with a half assed multiplayer. I bought GRAW 1 because it was a huge leap from the previous ghost recons although I was hugely disappointed by the multiplayer but I just cant do the same for GRAW 2. At best, I think I will be renting the game just to go throught the single player.

Another thing is Gears of War is rumoured to have some sort of huge update coming soon where other modes are apprentely being itroduced with a bench of new features and maps which could perhaps satisfy what our customization craving.

Yeah, I totally agree with you. I'm just gonna miss the FLIR vision (both night and thermic).
We have a graw dev on the french forum and according to him, the AI solo is way better than in the 1st one. Besides he claims the framerate is smooth and they really have improved the graphics. I'll be able to confirm/infirm in 2/3 hours now.
I can't wait ;-)
Ali, I really liked the mp in graw1 (better than the solo actually) and it's so different from GoW... 2 bullets and you're dead ! I love my Gears sessions, but I'll be glad to have a more tactical TPS. Besides, the mp graphics are really gorgeous in the demo, IMO.

This game is like forza 2 u can do alot and it will be very long lasting, can,t wait.

I didn't really like GRAW 1 MP, dunno why but I had a hell of alot of fun with the GRAW 2 MP demo. I've been waiting for another online game for long now.

GOW is getting old and I just can't stand THAT amount of bugs and hostadvantage in this game. I always stop playing, when a half decent host comes along and just whipes the floor with my whole team. It would be a lovely game but enough is enough, hopefully GOW 2 will get a better MP...

I've been playing it for the past 2 hours on difficult. My only concern is that it's been quite easy so far, but otherwise, the new cross com really changes the gameplay... and graphically, the game REALLY kicks ass !

The ragdoll is freaking amazing in this. I love the part where he hits the two guys who come around the corner with a grenade. Awesome. =0

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (25 minutes ago)

  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (39 minutes ago)
