Ok, this is coming from someone who only played the GR demo on the PC, and owns GR2 on the Xbox but never played it (bought it used and tucked it away for a rainy day).
I like it...at least the single player. Haven't tried multi yet. Not sure how this style of gameplay leads itself to player versus player with the auto aiming and stuff. Co-Op must be fun, though.
Jasons right, this isn't an action game. its definatly like Rainbow Six....creep and aim, creep and aim.......choose your position and hope nobody appears behind you. Mastering the controls will also take me a little time, as I'm new to the series...but they're intuitive enough after awhile. I love being able to choose different weapons.
One thing that does suck about this game is that the interface makes it tough to turn around and defend yourself from the rear IF you're crouched and engaging enemies from one direction. Oddly enough, your team doesn't have one member automatticlly watching your rear, or so it would appear.
Also, I guess I gotta read the manual...one minute my team is following me, the next they are holding position. I rally them behind me, they catch up to my last position, adn then they hold position again. <SHRUG>...again, human error :) I gotta RTFM.
Its also tough to ID targets above/below you unless you really pay attention to the little hud queues. I found myself getting lost quite a bit, searching for my waypoint amidst several other arrows. Gotta brush up on my SA in this game.
GRAPHICS: I think they're hot. Really, they're quite good. I also love the way you can interact with the environment. Parked cars Blowed UP..>BLOWED UP REAL GOOD!<, glass shatters, environments take bullet hits. Etc, etc. But its definatly a slower paced game.
I'm going to enjoy going through this one over time, but I imagine I will DREAD multiplayer deathmatch type games, the level of "control" against human characters in this game seems kinda clunky.......maybe if you're playing friends.....co-op might be cool.
Now I wanna go back tomorrow and get BURNOUT :)
PS: HEY, WHERES THE DAMN HUD???
In every video I've seen there is the hud that sorta looks like a face-screen.....the outline around the hud, so its like its projected onto goggles or something. I DONT have that.
Not at all. I have the hud, but not the rest....first person or third person.
in the IGN videos they show that curved outline looking thing around the hud, but not on my game...its just not there.
I'm playing at 1080i......Anyone else not have this??
