    i played online last night - all i can say it WOW!!

    this is THE 360 game to own - sell PDZ and dont even think about COD online. This game is all you need. there are more game options than you can shake a large RPG at - the weapons are superb, the enemy AI is outstanding (we got flanked so many times) and the maps are awesome. I think that the Dry Dock MP map is simply the best looking thing i've seen on the 360 - the lighting effects and sound are jaw dropping if you have the system to show it off.

    all in all - if you only have one game in your collection then make this one. i'm hoping a few more people have it today so we can get it on tonight. i've had about 3 hours sleep -and i'm shattered but i'll do it all again tonight!!

    god it will be good to see the back of the rubbish PDZ, although i will miss the crap animation of the players ha ha

    I've never played any of the Ghost Recon series...is it an FPS game?
    I really like the splinter cell games, is it along the lines of that?

    Want a new game to play this month!!

    the 5.1 is awesome - you blow up an APC in training - it nearly leveled my house as well :D

    as for it being like Splinter cell - in some ways yes. if you play co op on line (up to a massive 16 players in co op - which will make Razor very happy- Morning Razor) and you dont pay attention then you WILL DIE VERY VERY QUICKLY. Splinter cell players will love it - halo player maybe not.

    and it either 1st or 3rd person :thumbsup:

    yes it can be removed - but if you do then you will die. the levels are so detailed that the eneimies dont stand out - you cant see them from miles z\ways and the AI is so good that they hide from you - without the red diamonds yuor life WILL be short - i know i tried it.

    Gary :D

    I understand why alot of people ask this - it seems unnatural to us who've played previous games without such aids, but I think it's important to remember the game was designed with the fact that this aid would be switched on. Not that I've played it yet, but I'd guess there will be far more enemies than friendlies, so this aid kind of just balances up the equation.

    Can't wait til tomorrow to get my mitts on this one.

    Mind if I add some of you boys (and girls) to my friends list - will be nice to get online with some like-minded people.

    REALLY looking forward to giving the MP co-op a crack. That for me will be something different rather than the usual frag-fest. Man - proper co-op between the team over headsets just sounds awesome... Just hope the reality lives up to the theory... :lease:

    I tell you what, that outline is actually a red glow a la Ready Brek because these hombres must have been exposed to superhero sytlee radio-active material to aim like they do! I tried playing a bit on "Hard" and I've died more times than old folks' home hairdresser on free blue rinse day! ;)

    On a serious note, it doesn't detract from the game in single player mode from my experience so far, it may well be a different kettle of burritos in the MP game.

    as i pointed out before that is a NEWS thread - if it has become a thread of people who HAVE played the game then it shouldn't have.

    it was my intention to give my thoughts as i have played and very few others have. how many people would have read my post in a news thread? how many people would have bothered to look?

    i'm sure if it was a duplicate that had no merit as a stand alone thread a mod would have moved it by now/ you seem to be the obnly one who has moaned about it. everybody else just had questions.

    Well news is people playing it, what else would it be?

    I cant be bothered arguing about it. If you cant see the last thing the front page needs is another thread on GRAW then I doubt I am going to be able to convince you.

    I would come down on Gary's side of the fence here perhaps. I have been bitching a little lately about all the new GRAW threads, but that's because they weren't adding anything new to the discussion - ie. they were just "I haven't had my order from XXX dispatched yet". Gary's thread is actually the first started since anyone has got their hands on the game and so reflects gameplay as opposed to news or speculation, so I didn't see it worthy of a merge. All about opinions I guess...

    Anyway, I reckon we just call a day on that discussion.

    I think that it could add an intresting element to the MP game tactics wise. Now I could be wrong here but I believe that an enemy only gets highlighted red once you(and or a team member) has spotted them or they have been picked up by your survey drone.

    When playing MP the drones are going to mean that rather than just keeping an eye on terain ahead to try and spot your enemy you will need keep an eye on the sky as well. Shooting down any enemy drones as soon as possible will be vital so that your position is not given away.

    But maybe it wont work out like that when I actually get to play the game.....

    you are correct about how the highlighting works. The use of drones is important. It actually makes it more fun knowing roughly where the bad guys are and going for them, rather than wandering around for ages on some maps.

    You can turn the glow off though, and remove drones for a total counterstrike'esque game experience. The multitude of options are fantastic, something for everyone.

    a quick press of the backup key shows the map,and location of the drones, so you can try to hide from them if you wish, or take them out..the use of the back button for the map is very important actually, you will be using it lots

    Just played a solo elimination game on live and there was no red outlines, the team game earlier had them though. It seems to depend on the game setup but will check.
