Ahhh! This game is great! Got to love the tactical gameplay. The voiceover and graphics could be a bit better, but anyway: A great game! :D

Yes so far it was good. But I just played the first two missions co-op and a bit MP. Mp seems better than the previous one, less grenades = more shooting and more fun.

Co-op was good, could be better but my mate was high, so I lost him every 5 min.

Less grenades, how? You have 1 grenade? That would be great :) You had 3 in Vegas 1 right? (cant remember lol)

Have'nt played Vegas 1 myself, exept from the demo, but I totaly agree with you. So for people who played Vegas 1, I think that this one will be a dissapointing experience.

This game is extremely disappointing graphically.

i think people are a little confused as to how the first game looked, this game beats the first game into the ground graphically. its not a huge leap, but it is better. as for gameplay, its the same, but then i didnt expect it to change all that drastically (and i think people are pretty stupid to expect that sort of thing) i mean, was GRAW 2 so different from GRAW1...hell no, did as many people whine and bitch about that game...hell no. if you liked the first game i cant see you being dissapointed by the second since it retains everything you liked about the first game plus a few things. i mean, you'd have to be all about graphics and nothing else to consider this game a dissapointment....not buying it tho, rental will do me fine. but i needed to play it. i'd be stupid not to considering how much i liked the first (was the best game on 360 untill cod4)

That is so true. GRAW2 was pretty much a GRAW1 expansion much the same way RSV2 is a RSV expansion. They both use the same settings, have similar and sometimes parallel stories, and feature slight visual upgrades over their predecessors. Still, Ubi is known to do this kind of thing with their Tom Clancy franchises, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, I'm looking at you, so it is pretty pointless to start complaining about something that has happened for a long time.

I think you people are way to negative about this one. It's a very solid game and they made a better MP. The campaign so far didn't have that much story (not that I cared about it anyway). Someone expecting huge changes from Vegas 1 is gonna get disapointed. I expected more of the same which is fine with me because Vegas 1 was a lot of fun while it lasted.

Everyone unsure about it should just rent it or buy it when the price goes down. As I said it's a very solid game

It's amazing they have 140k XP in the screens there with only two months of development. Or was it 6 months? I havent finished R6V1 yet, which already felt like an UT-mod.
