    Think I'll get this as I'm not into footy games :eek:

    Anyone know if there is an online co-opted mode included in this one as well - can't look at Gaming sites from work :mad:

    feedback please mr bonesy - was well up for this but the reviews are not great.

    dont like the 3rd person thing either.

    oh and as usual, ubi release a game with more holes than a swiss cheese factory.

    hmmm. hard one this.

    no more ghost recon, more counter strike in approach.
    single player seems a bit, hmmm, drawn out. very like that older 4 member squad 3rd person view game... erm...

    multiplayer is a bit more encouraging, very like old ghost recon. lie down quickly, scan the undergrowth, reload sniper rifle, etc.

    but tonight was full of americans shooting me ... for joining their team. thanks then.

    and the live optimatch interface seems a bit dated compared to halo 2.

    but, if you were a true fan of the first ghost recons, it seems very similar ...

    Well got mine today from play and had an hours worth of play - just played some single player quick matches.
    To be honest rather disapointed with it, very slow and some dodgy frame rate on one level i played(made looking around seem like you were drunk)
    Very clunky and poorly thought out menu system.
    The Friends list bug isnt too bad you can just about go all the way down but it is like you are fighting the game to get there.
    Also couldnt get the voices(of my squad) to come through the headset(like on R6) even though theres an option - it doesnt seem to work.
    A small selection of weapons too ?? But i'm guessing the rest are unlocked as you go through the game.
    Graphics are good and solid although theres still plenty of fog in the distance.
    Sound is aslo very good but not quite as good as GR and GR IT - when grenades go off there wasnt the cool echoey effect.
    If your a fan of the games i think its well worth getting BUT do get it from somewhere like Game so you can take it back if you dont like it.
    I'm going to try it out a few more times and see if i can get into it.

    Think I'm going to give this one a miss. A lot of the negative feedback is putting me off.
    I don't think I've really had everything out of GRIT yet anyway.
    Hanging on until Doom 3 and Halo 2 has enough there to keep me busy for a few months.

    Well you're spot on, I loved GR and GRIT. In fact I've probably played those two games more than any other. Particularly the first, must have played that for nearly a year non stop with the guys from here.

    I look forward to your review, maybe it will change my mind...

    I looked at the graphics and was excited. Read the reviews and was disappointed. I played Halo 2 and PES4 online and thought am I going to play it.

    The answer is of course no. Not got the time at the moment. Tell me I`m wrong and its brilliant.....

    Right, just my personal opinion. Menu's are difficult to use and minor graphical glitches, other than that its AWSOME, friggin AWSOME graphics are bang on, sound is superb. I have been playin co-op with Loopy,Easy,an Cap tonight and we all seem to agree that is v realistic. Thunder/Lightning/Rain effects on some levels really add atmosphere. Little touches like flies gathering around light sources, grass/trees moving in wind. Best game i've ever played to date.

    :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :clap:

    Yep - I've changed my view on this after a good playing session tonight. It really is a Great game.
    -Spike-
    THe Co op modes are great all the ones from GR plus a few new ones BUT the big news is you can have 16 players on co-op games!! It will depend on your connection speed so for us in the UK i would guess we will be stuck at around 12 players but thats a big improvement on GR which only allowed 4.

    I hope you dont mean Halo 2 that would be insane :rolleyes: I am encouraged by the comments. I almost got it but it was pretty much universally slated. I cant stand Rainbow 6 the whole experience has tarnished this sort of game for me I am afraifd. Been playing Halo2 & PES4 all night it will have to be spectacular to get me away from these titles.

    As much as I love Halo 2 my blood pressure could really do with a game that is a little less fast if you know what I mean....(cue the jokes about my age)

    And up to 16 players on co-op means we could all get on :)
    Where's my credit card :zonked:

    Dont get rid of Halo 2 as that is still the daddy for online gaming.
    Get rid of that crappy soccer game instead :D
    Chad does that mean you are going to be on live :eek:

    Mmm I am tempted. Might wait until Halo 2 calms down a bit. Still well into that and the footy dont think I will have time to play at the moment.

    Got it yesterday.
    The menus are a bit crap but the game....how realistic is this....?
    The sound is excellent too with guns and explosions shaking the room. 5.1 is used superbly.
    Played co-op and the first thing that struck me is how much harder this is. The other two games I would have the difficulty on Elite, with this one (you get normal and hard to choose from) even on normal it's very difficult.
    The AI behaves better as well, rather than just running towards you they shoot then hide, dodge, weave, and take cover behind trees and rocks.
    Laying down on one of the daylight maps the grass was so realistic it was like I was actually there, very tense and absorbing.
    So far superb :thumbsup:
