SPOILERS INSIDE - My impressions as I play....

Ok, to start this off I do not have this running through a HDTV unfortunatley, that being said, the game still looks amazing.

Interface - I know people have been griping about the interface taking up too much of the screen, etc. but I have to tell you, its deserved. Its a little difficult to get used to navagating things, I still havent, but its becomming easier. Aiming is still alot easier on a PC but thats to be expected.

Sound - The sound is pretty good, I really liked the music aspect while I was in the blackhawk, it made it feel like a movie. The voice acting leaves a little to be desired IMO, but thats to be expected in most games I feel.

Training Mission - It may actually shock you how realistic things look right away. The training for team controls is really nice, but the actual training as far as controling your soldier is a bit confusing. All in all though, its a nice walk-through, and i'm sure i'll become more familiar with things as I play.

Will add to this as I play...

First Mission - Died at the second hostile. Its a pretty difficult game, which is good. Aiming is very difficult thus far. Just got the UAV, and then got taken out on my way to the rally point. The UAV is a little less of a "spoiler" as people probably think it will be. You basicly have to stop everything you are doing to use it (at least I do at this point) so you cant just run it all over the map and put red diamonds all over the thing.

What I am really liking about this is it seems like a very nonlinear game, more similar to GR1 PC version. Far more tactical of a game, and if I havent said it enough yet.. You REALLY have to be careful moving around.

haha.. I don't even know what to say about it. The first mission alone is so tense. You really CARE about reaching your mission objectives. This is by far the best 360 game available, and short of the difficulty in aiming, the best GR game available as of yet.

Hi,

    How realistic are the enemy and friendly AI ?

Enemy AI seems good, they take cover when fired upon obviously, and I actually just got killed a minute ago because I was flanked by a couple soldiers that got out of my line of sight some how.

As far as how realistic friendly AI is... It "seems" good, but it is very hard for me to pay alot of attention to what the other soldiers are doing at this point since I am still having some problems with remembering how to control everything.

I just went and had a smoke and was thinking... In reguards to what I said about how you really care about reaching your objectives, for some reason the tension gets you to want to reach the president or whatever. The only thing I think is kind of ashame is that they didnt give you a story line at the beginning of the game. I'm sure it will come as I continue to play, but given how much I seem to care about the story, it would have been nice to be given some background on what you are doing instead of just dropping you right into the action.

Cleared the first mission... I won't spoil it, but the "suport" you et towards the end is kick ######!!!

Starting on the second mission now...

If a mod could put in the subject line that this thread contains spoilers that would be great.

From this point on there are going to be spoilers, so I am going to put a big space ion here....

Ok, this is the first mission where you are in the seat of the blackhawk, all I can say is it is better than advertised. I have died twice and I am loving every second of it!!

Ok, second mission centered around securing and escorting the MExican president. The support in this game that you can use ia amazing. So far you have been in control of tanks, truck, the drone, and the blackhawak. All of this you control using that tactical map that everyone was complaining about being too large, while you are fighting with your team. This game is amazing. :)

Aiming is difficult? Hmmm...not at all IMO :)

And personally i'd rather had the game alittle bit harder, more enemies on the map and stuff. Although i'm far into mission 3 now and things are getting hectic, but i like a challenge alot, so that's good...i want the gameto be hard, i don't want to

be able to go trough it quickly without being killed several times.

I was kinda worried at first, since i went trough the first two levels rather quickly, cause of the cover-peek move you can use, it becomes quite a bit easier to kill your enemy, on a forum i read something that the game's gonna get frustratingly difficult at times...well...bring it on!!!!!!! :rocky:

kingotnw, how does a 4:3 TV handle the 16:9 gamescreen?

Do you have different aspect ratio options when using a 360 on a reg TV?

Thanks in advance.
