  1. I know steve above and he bought his copy from play.com. So that rumor above is NOT true at all. I personally don't have any problems with the demo though, i've never had any disconnections before.
  2. This was the first game since the [GR] that has really interested me and my squad in getting back into playing the GR series. This has been due to the communication between the GR community and GRIN and may not have reached the expectations of GR fans and other audience otherwise. UBI doing this is a huge mistake!
  3. I'm not too bothered about reviews these days, I've disagreed with many from various websites and enjoyed the game myself. If I remember correctly the [Ghost Recon] never exactly received the best reviews. From what I've played I am really enjoying both single player and multi player. For me ghost recon was mostly about its online play and the community who played the game... Games felt intense and it just had a good tactical feel to it, something other games fail to do. The feeling I had with ghost recon was I had to be really careful playing, watching my every move, just peeping around a corner and I could be killed. In matches it got like that a lot! -- those clans around here also would probably agree with me. I haven't yet found this in ANY other first person shooter on the PC. GRAW2 for me delivers a similar experience. However, I would of liked variety in maps and to have seen more 'green' environments. The maps from 'island thunder' ghost recon exp pack had very nice environments.
  4. Hope there will be websites like clanbase hosting ladders for GRAW2 ! Hoping to get all my team together - DoW should be real fun like [GR] was. Something that made it a little easier to play matches in [GR] was the way the Lobby / game was set up. Playing the demo over the last few days its GOOD to see that a few of the old clans are about playing again!
  5. EXCELLENT! What a major improvement over the first GRAW. I'm very impressed, the graphics are far better than what the screen shots show, the lighting effects are nice. The game ran around 50 fps so it was smooth playing all throughout. The changes that have been made are really cool, I like the command map and its controls especially, the a.i seems to have undergone major improvement over the first Graw too. I just love how the game feels as well. Overall, you have done a superb job with both single player and multi player aspects of the game. I really enjoyed playing that single player mission, shame there was more... especially for that huge download. Can't wait for the game to arrive I like the first GRAW, but this looks to be better than [GR] and Graw1
  6. Seems to be fixed in the new Single player demo
  7. I have a power colour X1950 XT 512mb card and when GRAW does the system check it comes up with an Error on the driver. however the game itself runs fine. Around 40-90 fps!
  8. Playing for a few more hours and starting to really enjoy it! I so hope that this game will draw in new people and bring back all the old Clans that used to play [GR].
  9. Don't download from Gamespot as I just wasted over 4 hours and 2gb download on a corrupt file. Cab2 is corrupt :*(
  10. I'm really enjoying multi player, and can't wait for me and my old team to get back into GR! It feels like the old GR in a lot of ways, the look is more '[GR]' too! The game is paced similar to how [GR] was and I like it very much. Hopefully the games will become more intense when playing in matches and we see more strategic movements and combat from squads. The map was 'ok' in my opinion. One thing I both hated, and loved about GR was the fact that there were certain points of the map where you could win the advantage over the other player. I.e you cover a certain spot to prevent enemy movement while you the rest of the team flank them from another direction. There was no real strategic points in this map that I could see. I remember in GR that it was quite important that you 'won' the ground and it felt important. With this the map is a bit chaotic. However I really enjoyed it and the game certainly is good, and has potential to grow. Far better than GRAW1 ! Well done GRIN. Now its up to the community to embrace these game and realize its potential.\ Game runs smooth, no lagging. I'm really happy with it!
  11. Antec TruePower Trio 650W PSU ASUS M2R32-MVP Radeon Xpress 3200 CrossFire AM2: Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2 GB (2x1gb) Ultra low latency GEIL RAM Power Colour ATI X1950XT 512mb GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics card Creative Audigy 2 6.1 surround sound 160gb hdd 2x 250gb s/ata hdd Pioneer dvd writer The game in MP seems to run between 40-90 FPS. Stays quite high even during a full server! Res is on 1024x768 and all settings on high as they can go. Excellent !
  12. Its done when its done.... thats how it should be. First impressions are very important if you want to build a good online gaming community. If GRIN doesn't feel that the game is ready yet then so be it. Trying to recover with patches after the game is released is always much more of a challenge, rather than just coming out with a very stable and nice looking polished game. We all expect there to be 'patches' or updates to games these days, but they should be able to work on it as long as they feel they need to. Moaning about the game being pushed back is pointless.
  13. I'm happy to wait for this... don't see it as a bad thing, but its an oppurtunity for GRIN to improve and make little tweaks before the game is released. The demo is great, and I think GRAW2 will be better than the first, both in sp and mp. Everyone be patient! GRIN wants their game to be as good as it can be!
  14. Soon they'll have some cool Nano-Armor http://www.isracast.com/Articles/Article.aspx?ID=28
  15. I really liked the effect when you got hit by a bullet in the [GR]. Getting shot put you at a big disadvantage for a second because your aim went to hell. The limp in the first GR was also good, but not sure if it would work with this game... however, remember when redstorm had taken out the limp and the majority of GR fans wanted it back in. Will be playing this demo properly on monday, can't wait! -- Right now I have a busted fan on my graphics card so waiting for replacement
  16. I tried getting it from gamespy but told me my system wasn't good enough! AMD 3000xp+ 1GB ram ATI X850XT pe That is above what they're looking for correct?
  17. I thought it was a brilliant game. Kirse; Maybe you should just take breaks while playing games and not try complete it in one go?
  18. It would be nice if we got a DEMO or something, while we wait for the June release date.
  19. Camping can be a very good tactic. I remember how intense the games used to be... it was attack and then defend in some cases (defending our point (kill)) or sometimes we'd just go all out and attack and keep pushing the enemy back (mp games). Strategically having people camp in different areas of the map can cover many areas so that your offensive team don't have to worry about certain parts. I remember we used to split up into two teams in my team. We had a defensive team or a team that would cover a general area while our offensive team would move forward and clear out areas. It worked quite well. Yes some maps in GR were too big to be camping, but it also created the atmosphere as it wasnt all run and gun. I remember how difficult it would to sometimes be to gain a few paces because you popped your head out and BANG, you die. You really had to think about it as you knew some of the other team are carefully and certainly being very patient about watching a particular place. I think its how you use the camping tactic that matters. But the hotel thing was a bit of a problem... I wish we could have blown up the building
  20. I think the limp was an important thing for GR1... because it made you think that if you get shot you are screwed.. so you were more careful. I thought the single player of GRAW was fine, and I quite enjoyed it... but they have to take clues from GR1. It will get the awesome community back together. The tension that was in GR1 isn't replicated in many games I think. I hope GRAW2 can deliver a very solid multiplayer! I'd love to see some maps other than urban ones. Diversity is the key!
  21. I thought GRIN made an AWESOME single player campaign, far better than GR1. Just the multiplayer is a bit errr, different than I expected.
  22. I think we'll see environments pretty much spot on to how they look in reality within a very short amount of time from now... It's still going to be the characters that they are going to have to work on to become more convincing... What you think sup... how long before we get to this point? The problem is we 'humans' can pick up on extremely subtle differences that makes the character look real fake.
  23. This game felt quite different from what I've been playing over the last few years. It was actually fun to play and felt I was in the environment. The demo was an enjoyable experience! Excellent graphics, sound and gameplay. The depth of field in that video was great. I don't think my x850xt p.e is capable of that I love the foilage in this game ! this engine would have been certainly been more than adequate for graw. I find it pathetic that someone would not play a game just because a certain publisher was behind it.
  24. I don't know... I played the GR1 campaign and just found it very easy compared to GRAW. They just sometimes had an accurate shot rather than employing tactics. I can't say that SP interested me much as I enjoyed many years of Multiplayer with my team
