Recruit - 3rd Class

Recruit - 3rd Class (2/13)



  1. It amazes me that I looked over the names list and three people listed are on my Friends List already just from playing Xbox Live a lot!
  2. Thanks for the kind words, people! You've encouraged me to do more of these in the future! (Oblivion comes out this week... *shudders at that review*)
  3. I think the delay really helped the game even more since 360 owners have been starving for another A+ title since Call of Duty 2 at launch. That's a HUGE deal for Ubi too considering the small number of 360's out there. Hopefully they will see the sales and quality that went into the game and do the same with Rainbow Six: Vegas so it's not another Rainbow Six: Letdown.
  4. I watched this the other day, I thought the quality of the video in the review was superb.
  5. I wrote up a review this morning and I thought I'd share with you guys: Click This Link
  6. I'm not even sure if the 'Map Pack' is real yet, but that leaked list had it listed. I'm guessing they will do something along the lines of how Halo 2 had an added Map Pack to add on to the original game and sell it for around $20-30?
  7. Nice pics, makes me REALLY wish I had a vibrant HDTV. I'm stuck on a really old Sony Trinitron with S-Video. It's still not too bad, but nothing like 720p Widescreen of course!
  8. I've had a lot of connection issues as well. As much as people bash Halo 2, UbiSoft could learn a lesson from them about online coding. I can almost always play in 12-16 player rooms in Halo 2, but any UbiSoft game it seems like once you get past 6-8 players in a room, there is always some connection issues for me... (especially on Missions in the past)
  9. I wish there were more enemies on the Firefight type of games too. I always like GR2 the best in that area because there were about 120-140 enemies on a lot of the maps, it was WAY more fun since most of the time you're in a room with at least 4 people in it. With so few enemies, it's like you're only killing about 10 a piece. That's an absolute joke to me and so easy...I mean, I used to do "The Dam" level on GR2 with 145 enemies by myself with no explosives on Firefight.
  10. Cool posts. I'm only up to Mission 5 single-player wise as I've spent most of my time online in Co-Op modes. I'm starting to feel really bad about the single-player honestly and I know a lot of people will disagree with me. It's hard for me right now as I'm having mixed feelings about this actually being a "game" from what I've played. Maybe it's because you're so immersed in the world, but a lot of the game feels to me more like an interactive full motion video sequence to me. It's like for the most part, you go through and area and kill a couple of enemies, go through a large empty area, then hit a couple more button presses to kill an enemy? I don't know how to explain it, but it feels like one of those games to me so far like those old games where you go through a scene with no control then you just push whatever button they tell you to when it pops up on the screen. (like those old Shenmue sequences) I don't know why it feels that way to me. Another thing that made me take another look at the game was just how flooring the graphics were. In a way, I wish they just had the game control well instead of worrying about graphics so much. I mean, the game does control well, don't get me wrong. For instance though, in Mission 4 I believe, you're up on a hill where you can snipe down on enemies and when you're zoomed in to either the first stage or second stage of zoom on a sniper rifle, the enemies actually outrun your reticle because you can't turn fast enough. I feel this was an issue because if they let you turn faster, there might have been framerate issues. Developers make that sacrifice once in awhile. It's very frustrating for me when you actually can't target an enemy because your reticle is too slow and you're forced to take a sniper rifle? It's never been like this in the past with any other of the GR series games. I think that is what is adding to making it feel more like a button-pressing interactive movie for me as well...because everything is just SO slow to me. Well anyways, this whole post wasn't a bash, I love the game and I plan on reviewing it on my website when I'm finished with single-player and I'm pretty sure the game will score at least an 8.8 from or a decent bit higher. I was just stating some of the stuff I ran into that was disappointing.
  11. Yeah, I can totally see it being more of a helicopter type of game.
  12. Does anybody know why I did all of the Treasury co-op level online by myself (60 kills, 500 points), but it only gave me 2 Gamerscore points instead of the 8 it's supposed to give you? All the other levels seem to be giving me 8...is it just because I did it all alone?
  13. UbiSoft ALWAYS releases early release dates, then delays their games. That early 2007 GR4 will turn into Fall 2007 for sure. Also, that map pack better have a LOAD of maps. Only having 4 co-op maps and about 8 multiplayer maps in GRAW kills me, especially only having the 4 co-op, it sucks!
  14. I think the trigger always lags with a gun like the MR-C in single player? I brought this up all the time at TeamXbox Forums. I thought it was something they did on purpose for that gun to make it more realistic for some reason, I'm not sure, but it drives me crazy too. The other bug I ran into was on the first level there was a part were full auto fire from an enemy gun was coming out of a hill? Like the enemy was stuck way down in the ground? I couldn't figure out why I was getting hit or from where, then I walked up and saw it just streaming out of the hill and it would hurt you when you walked in it. It was right after you cross under the bridge in the first level...
  15. So...wait...this is your review and you said in the review that you've only played two maps? Did I misunderstand that? I don't know how anybody could ever review a game after only playing two levels. Granted, you do get the overall feel for the game early on and what to expect and I agree with you that it will probably never feel like Ghost Recon 1 again...I guess that is what happens when companies get bigger and want to make more money going more run-and-gun action orientated to sell to the male audience.
