When I said it "reminded me" of Halo I meant the whole concept of the game (space Marine or whatever, the power suit, killing aliens, etc.) Have you played the demo? When you first go through the configuration tutorial on how to use the suit, that doesn't remind you of Halo? It sure as hell reminded me of that game. I never really liked Halo or any other FPS, but I do like 3rd Person better. I don't get the motion sickness problem with 3rd Person. If anything, the game play of Vanguish reminds me of WET, with the slow mo firing and the ability to slide and fire, etc.
Believe it or not, I haven't played GOW or the other games you mentioned. Haven't played any of the COD games, either. One day I'll get around to it. IDK, maybe being a former Marine myself, I just can't get into playing games with realistic war fighting whereas the sci-fi shooters, I don't have any problems. Maybe it's me, however, I did like playing those old Army Men games on the original PlayStation. That'll be cool if they brought those to 360, but the current stuff... IDK, never had a urge to play them. One day I will, though. I see RedBox is now renting them for $2.50 a day, so that will be a good excuse to give 'em a shot. I seen MW2 on the kiosk yesterday.
