    I've got it but havent played it yet. If its anywhere near as good as the PC version then I'll be happy as I loved the pc version, completed it which is a rarity these days.
    Not to sure about the lack of mouse and keyboard though, these type of FPS do work best with a keyboard and mouse.

    I have completed the pc version and loved it. I was sceptical that they could do a good job on the xbox. However I received the demo on OXM and I was pleasantly surprised how good the game was. Ok the graphics are no where near as good as a pc but for the xbox they were very good. The control method also works really well. From playing the demo I would give this a 9/10 :thumbsup:

    Is Live play co-op? :confused:

    We finished decorating WHOLE house :thumbsdow , had a look for properties, could find nothing we liked so didnt even bother putting house up for sale. Trouble is, I had taken all my HC setup out of the sitting room and packed it up. Only one option left, the garage. Im not complaining, when its all set up it will make it all much easier :smashin:

    I ordered at gameplay at lunchtime, despatched this evening so hopefully here either tomorrow or saturday

    From what i have read the single player is really good and also the new feral abilities add something to multiplayer also

    lockdown hasn't been as good as i hoped, not all bad but wasn't finished in my opinion and without the regulars playing not as much fun

    I bought FCI in Game today.

    On the shelf were some copies marked at 32.99 ( 2 quid less than the majority of the other copies in the shop).

    I told everyone in the queue that had a 34.99 copy!
    Not only did this benefit a lot of people in the shop , it also got me considerably further up the queue!

    And the manager was not happy!
    Sent one of his minions off with a bullet to collect up all the mispriced copies!

    Ahhhh ... nice way to round of the week!

    Its an awesome game both single and multiplayer.

    You can tell they have made a big effort with this, its not just a lazy PC port this is a whole new game.

    I am absolutely amazed by the quality they have been able to squeze out of the xbox for this. Graphics really are top notch certainly amongst the best I have ever seen from the xbox.

    It will be really interesting to see how the custom maps / upload works out for live, obviously trying to get some low level mod aspect into the community even if it dosnt work the effort is appreciated.

    This is one of the few games that could be worth carrying onto the 360......

    I'll second that. It looks gorgeous despite the inevitable slowdown in the replays. At least EA have made an effort to push the Xbox version this year. None of the other consoles would be capable of running this game at 720p that's for sure. :thumbsup:

    720p is that right :eek: Blimey worth the £30 squid to see what 720p looks like.

    On Gamespot it says 480p :confused:

    Nope it's deffo running at 1280x720. The menus and ingame graphics are noticeably sharper and the Info button on my Samsung LE-26R41BD TV remote tells me it's 1280x720. I don't think it's worth buying a game just to see it running in 720p but it is a great game anyway... :smashin:

    It must be 720p to look this good. Its the best looking game I have seen on the xbox to be honest.

    And its a great game. Buy it !
