  1. Nice looking maps, will definitely download them once my burnt out 360 comes back to me.
  2. I'm telling you, the next game is going to be Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Team Rainbow Six Advanced Wafighter and will just be Mitchell and Keller launching nukes at Mexico the whole time.
  3. Online, last man standing, with the right players, feels very Ghost Recon esque. Single player.. not so much, but the general belief shared by most of the GRAW 2 360 community is if played right with the right people, the game kicks ass and becomes one hell of a tactical shooter.
  4. Same engine. The game will look sharper, effects might be better, and it will be smoother. Little more in terms of graphics. Don't expect any huge graphical upgrades. As it is, (the name of the engine anyone?) is pretty impressive on its own so I don't mind.
  5. Ah..I'm not hosting many games, so that shouldn't be a problem. I am playing mostly ranked games, and while I do find myself being ejected from some games, other games, I'm disconnected, dropped, what have you, not kicked from the server. It's nost just me, I'm surprised here that some of you don't see the almost inevitable disconnect of at least one or two players as soon as you start moving. It almost always happens in the servers I'm in. There's no way these people are leaving, either. I'm sure they get, "This game session is no longer available," even as the first engagments of the round commence. As for the interface, you guys have to agree with me there. Where is the filter that lets me pick a map? Or the filter that lets me turn off passworded or full servers? I'm tired of re-searching for servers just because my first choice was locked. I know a lot of Live games don't have filters like that, but even Vegas's online interface is way better than what I've seen here. Why can't we get all the choices PC players get? No other game has done it yet, GRAW 2 could have been the first. I'd like to play less ranked games and more player matches, but I mean, few of the players on my friends list have moved from Gears and Vegas to GRAW 2, so unless I find a clan of decent, enjoyable players, looks like I'm stuck lone gunning it out for ranked pts and achievments.
  6. It should, like more and more PC games, be DVD exclusive. The percentage of players who can run GRAW 2 who won't have a DVD player is more than likely incredibly small. I really don't think that number would, especially in the eye's of Satanic Ubisoft, warrant mass production of another version of the game.
  7. i've never sat for 15-20 minutes trying to get into a game before. after quite a few server is locked (where's the symbol that tells me that before hand?) i finally get into a server and as soon as the game launches, i'm one of the lucky ones to get booted. try a few more (server is full here, locked here, game session no longer available there) i get into yet another game that launches, and again disconnected as soon as i start moving. not to mention the fact that every single person is a 1. i know it's not that long after release, but they really need to iron this crap out. the game is great once you get playing, but the online interface is just absolutely horrendous. hell, i feel like i'm back to GRAW PC when it first came out. and that, my friends, is very sad.
  8. While thought provoking, this topic has no place within GRAW 2 since the two games don't run on anything remotely close to the same engine. One is a third person, the other a first. That alone isn't going to allow the games to mix. Rainbow Six Vegas could work, but not GRAW. Games will not be cross platform based on name alone.
  9. The 360 version was really short. Fun, but the single player was really freaking short. I enjoyed it, though I sometimes had cover system problems (not as good as Gears and not nearly as good as Vegas in that aspect). The graphics and explosions were stunning. I never liked the tracers in the 360 version but (I don't know if this is true) I decided the tracers were part of the CrossCom 2.0 HUD, and thus they became acceptable. I just wish it had been longer. MP is a lot of fun though. It seems console players want to play Gears of War in Ghost Recon. I spend most of the maps prone behind a tree or a car with an M4, picking off the same silly gold team members once, twice, sometimes three times as they feel the need to sprint down the road again and again. Still, unless I really fall in love with the MP, when I return this rented copy of GRAW 2 for 360, I won't be going out to buy it. Gotta save for H3 and GTA IV, and GRAW 2 for the PC.
  10. I plan on playing MP for the next few days, then happily returning GRAW 2 to Blockbuster. The SP was incredibly short, only took me two and half days on and off.
  11. I think it's a silly feature. Ghost AI was decent last game and will hopefully be better this time around. You can't ask developers to try and design great teammate AI and add a feature like that. Not to mention it would kill any immersion in the game, at least in my opinion.
  12. Yeah, I do have the same look on my face. After GRAW with just 1024 and medium settings with my GF 6800 Ultra I can kiss GRAW2 good bye. Naah, I would try a demo anyway. Well it's the same engine. They haven't changed the graphics at all really, only sharpened textures here and there, or so it would seem. I'm sure whatever got you by for GRAW will get you by for GRAW 2.
  13. Based on that demo alone (ignoring MP just for the sake here) I would never spend $60 for the full version of that.
  14. That's a rather rash decision to make based on music from a trailer.. at least wait for a demo?
  15. Well, logically, medium or low settings on a game with incredible graphics would be equivalent to a game on high settings that has just average graphics. Is it just the low settings option that scares you?
  16. here are scubas ACUs from GRAW. see how they appear to take on the yellowish tint and actually blend in better than the original skins? what was really neat is how on the other, more rural maps, the tinge or what have you of his ACUs adapted to those as well. my main argument for the use of the acus is though that the worlds most powerful military would not have chosen it as their camo of choice if it hadn't been throughly tested and proven to work. i'll take their word for it.
  17. we have plenty of videos that we've seen the graphics look great. /dead topic.
  18. I couldn't disagree more. Neither game is terribly tactical, but I was running and gunning a lot more in GOW than I did in Vegas. How can you possibly say it has the worst multiplayer on 360? The persistent ranking system, the different game modes, 16 players, unlockables, it has the making of Battlefield and yet you think it's the worst multiplayer ever? Give me some reasons, I'm really curious. IGN did their weekly Live special on how much fun Vegas is. Your opinion?
  19. in that first picture, she resembles a man. 4/10.
  20. What a stupid topic. No kidding the Crysis engine can render forests/woodland better than the GRAW engine, most of the game takes place in a forest! The GRAW engine can render urban areas much better than the Crysis engine. Why? Because it's an urban tactical shooter. From your posts, I gathered that these beautifully rendered forests will give you a more Ghost Recon like feel than GRAW. Yea, good luck feeling like you're playing [GR] in that game. Have you even watched the gameplay vids? Just yesterday I played [GR] and me and a few squad mates blew up a huge, screaming tripod with guns that looked like a cross between a G36 and the battle rifle from H2. Also, if your computer can run Crysis, it can run GRAW. What the hell are you on? That's like saying you can run FEAR but not HL2. Both are good looking games, but FEAR is more intensive. Both GRAW and Crysis are beautiful games, but Crysis will take more power than GRAW. Again, good look moving through a fully destructible forest when you can't move down a bright, empty street. The hell? It's called system requirements, Polita. I'd suggest you have a look at GRAW's, as there is no way in hell Crysis wil have lower system requirements than GRAW. Games don't magically not run on comps, as your quote there seems to suggest. You meet the requirements, you get to run the game. (even if it's crap like with a 9600) If you comp can't measure up to GRAW, it will certainly not measure up to a game released a year later in Crysis.
  21. http://www.usmc.mil/marinelink/image1.nsf/...607O-003low.jpg maybe something like that?
  22. You should play around with the marines vest. It looks a little dull. Maybe make it black or have it share the desert digital camo?
  23. As discovered earlier in the thread, the camo does exactly what it's supposed to do in the game as it does in real life. Really nice work, Scuba.
  24. Just tried them ingame and wow. They're really nice. I thought I wouldn't like the camo weapons but after viewing them ingame, my opinion is changed. Still, all black would be nice too. Skins worked fine in SP and a random online coop match. Will try deathmatch shortly.. I shouldn't get any conflicting file errors, right? They're just skins.
