I would like to see 2 or 3 short movies of mp, not over 20 megs each so there is no problem with downloading, check in-game models of soldiers, customization, how they look, shadows, feel of game. good luck  :thumbsup:

yep, i will try to get all that. JUST wanted to let everyone know (and rub it in a bit, jk) that i will be playing graw in about 4 hours at the NYC comic con. Appearently its at the ugo booth. I will give my impressions about the game tonight. any more info request post it hear, and i will specifically look for it. i imagine this is final code, so probably a good place to get info.

If it's only SP...which I imagine it will be.....prob even the demo (1st level..is my guess), look out for the improved aiming system..or the short zoom..left trigger I think? I would love 2 know what kinda effect this has on accuracy...I need all the help I can get with this...lol

Have fun....and yes I am jealous....!!! :o=

Well it says.... "Join GR Community Manager "HangtownSOG" and the Frag Dolls' own Seppuku at the tricked out UGO booth for your shot to try out the game, or watch others engage in multiplayer madness."

So I'm sure they will have system link games going. I'm dying to hear from someone not related to the media give their opinion on how the multiplayer looks and plays.

He's probably still stuck on the long line to get in. :lol: I went last night and waited about an hour and 45 minutes to get in. The game looks very good, even on the small TV's they had. I was surprised how quickly I picked up the controls, and started racking up the kills. Felt very much like the GR TvT I'm used to. RSE did a great job with it.

just got back , every thing looks really solid. I have to say that the movies on the net do the mp no justice, there are parts of mp that look photo real, and i cant figure out why that doesnt translate on the movies on the net. suffice it to say you guys will NOT be dissappointed graphics wise. Gameplay wise everything was cool, i love the quick drop feature, and the tight over the shoulder shooting. Thats how i got all my kills. i will do a bigger write up later today about all the in's and out's. also "hangtown" from ubisoft, told me if i come back tommorrow, which i am, he will give me a pretty indepth walk through of the game.

btw, the demo is a squad mp demo. team vs team. seppuka from the fragdolls is there playing as well. She is good...very good, even though she is a run and gunner, lol. jk. anyways, the only complaint i have really is the screens that we play on. kinda crappy lcd's, with a low refresh rate or something. one other note about gameplay. I WILL definitely be turning off night vision while on day maps. meaning, turn it off in the server settings, because on a day map, it helps you too too much.

Actually the best thing to do is just ask questions about what you wanna know, that way either me or nycr can chime in. i will tell you everything i took from the play test. and tommorrow, i will learn a great deal more about the game.

Wow, thanks OPSIXDELTA!

I mostly wanted to know how the mp looked and you say it looks great so I'm good with that.

Any idea if you can speed up the...what's the words I'm looking for......aiming. That's it, can you adjust the aiming? How did the aiming feel....fast, slow, etc...?

Also just anything you want to add would be great.

Is it everything you thought it would be?

SMOKE!! Smoke grenades....were they in there? Tell me about them.

So all and all were you happy with the game?

aiming, felt, good, however there is kinda a lil bit of sway with your aiming, not much just enough so that you cant just put your cross hair on an area and it just doesnt move like in gr ss. there is kinda a natural movement to everything including aiming. i would say that you would be slower like the first hour you play, then after that you would be up to the speed you are now. the game is very easy to pick up and play. yeah smoke grenades are in there, however i didnt use them yet. i will try them tommorrow though. the game is everything i though it would be. what i am most impressed by though is the graphics. in person they are really quite astounding. i know there will be people who say "its not as good as sp" but after seeing it in person,. i think they are that good. you will have to see for yourself. i will do a long write up in about an hour in a half. so look out for that. i am going back tommorrow for a long play test.

another thing is that the drone wasnt very useful....at least to me in my play session today. i dont see if being very useful in squad, but maybe very useful in coop.

Allright here are my impressions. Now be advised this is just a preliminary write up, because i am going back to comic con tommorrow morning, and will go through alot of the games finer details with "Hangtown SOG" from UBI.

To start things off the first thing i noticed when i walked up to the booth, was the graphics. Now i had been thinking what alot of people on here were thinking , that the graphics in MP arent as good as SP.

well i do not think that is the case. the first map i saw was desert gulch, and it was simply beautiful, photorealistic in many places. you got a real sense of light and shadow. I guess you could say you felt like you were under the sun so to speak. Everything is animated in the map. all the grass moved, trees swayed, etc. Again everything casting really convincing soft shadows, and really hardline shadows, when you were shaded by an object or rock etc. The next map i played was the beach map. not sure what it was called, but the one that serallen first showed way back at x05 or something. The one with the white sand, and the castle perched up on the hill. This was really nice looking, and really nice playing. many different types of play styes were good for this map. Snipers could take advantage of the long distance perches, and riflemen could have their way in the twisting turning rock outcroppings that lined the beach area.

The next map i played was treasury, and this was incredible. It was kinda the "new govt. district" for all you Summit strike fans. But this was not a grided out metro area. really natural layout of the buildings, streets, courtyards, etc. Seemed very very open and large. as a matter of fact i got turned around more than a few times. This map is huge ! what i really liked were the many cars throughout the map., and when people use them as cover, you can shoot through the windows, and even blow the cars up. No more cover then. heh, the explosions are , in my opinion, the best i have seen in a videogame. both when cars explode and grenades. both have a real power behind them, and can do alot of damage.

Tomorrow, i will play through all of the maps if i can, however the game is set up on a lan, so i am not in control of the server when i play. The drone wasnt very useful in my opinion in a squad type game. at least with the people i was playing with. everyone was running and gunning, which basically meant i couldnt do much intel/recon, i basically had to go balls to the wall, and hunt people down. i CAN see the drone coming in handy on coop or , when playing tactically. Also the drone can be taken out quite easily.

The guns are really nice. alot of power behind them, and the sound is unmatched. hands down the best sound effects for guns i have ever heard. I didnt use alot of them, but i did see when i cycled through them, that guns come in alot of configs. Like when you went to the scar, you had several versions, of it including the silenced and grenadier, versions. and if i am not mistaken, a version that had both a silencer and launcher. Which was cool to see. Alot of the fan favorite guns are in there, and i will try to write alot of them down tomorrow if i can,.

The new tight shoulder view is really cool. when you pull in your left trigger, the camera pulls up close behind shoulder, and gives a pretty solid view to use when firing so that you dont always have to be zoomed in, but still focused on an area in the distance. You also have the ability to move while firing in this view, and maintaining, accuracy, because you move slower in that view. I didnt get a chance to mess around with game options but will try to get my hands on that tomorrow. If there was any complaints out of the whole experiences there would only be 2 of them.

A. when i set up a server, if i am playing a daytime map, i will personally be turning off the night vision ability for all players, as i saw quite a few people using it to their advantage on the day time maps.

B. they werent giving away demos of the game there. I WANT MY COPY NOW !!!!

This game totally lived up to the hype, and the expectations i have. and i am a long time ghostrecon fan. i bought GR1 the day it came out years ago, and i did the same with GR2 and the move to xbox. GRAW really just seems to take all that, and really sharpen it down to the point where is just straight deadly. I will bring alot more tomorrow, and more pictures.

Pictures, yes they arent very good, i guess i need to turn the flash on, because of the lighting. i will take better pictures tommorrow, promise. so here are just a few pics from the event.

Just when you walk up.

Again...excellent work and if I may say, one of the best reviews I have read in some time!!!!

I'll be glued to the forum tomorrow for more of your impressions. If you get the chance....use the smoke grenades and give us a little insight into their effectiveness for cover etc.

Enjoy!!!

Great read....Thanks for the info!

Question though, when you say quick drop what do you mean? I am a GR1 and GRIT Xbox player and the quick drop to me is "down, down, left"....from standing to prone in a split second. Is it similiar to that?

And if so what button do you use to quick drop? I thought that to go prone on GRAW you had to click left thumbstick in and hold it down to go prone? Am I right?

and BTW.....Seppuku is so HOT!
