    It's in the top 20 pre orders at Gameplay, saw a short preview video which looked good but it's out on ps2 so will it be better on 360? I did a search of the forum but couldn't find anything. Any good?

    Yeah, it's out on 360, and pre-orderable for £30 at the mo with GAME.

    looks like it could turn out pretty decent - the previews so far are all pretty positive.

    Quite tempted to pre-order this from GAME for £31.49, but do you think it'll likely be region free as it's by Eidos? If so I might wait & order from play-asia. Must admit I never like to give GAME my business, just don't like 'em.

    Shame the info about this game is a bit thin on the ground, considering it's quite close to release. If it's good though I might even cancel my pre-order for Saints Row & go for this instead, I don't know, I have a feeling SR might get boring pretty fast as it's a bit too similar to GTA for me.

    Tetlee, there is a few gameplay vids on gametrailers and gamespot, you may have already seen them but I looked at a couple of new ones this morning, I like the look of this game:thumbsup: from me.

    Funny enough I just opened a Gamespot video while I popped off to pour a cuppa, gonna watch it now. I certainly like the sounds of the game, plenty of vehicles etc. all sound good too.

    If I had to choose between this game or Saints Row as a free roam game, then I would choose Saints Row, because this game looks like it will be worst then Saints Row.

    I'd like to see some proper reviews of Just Cause really. The thing with Saints Row is that it's just so similar to GTA, not a bad thing you could argue, but I have a feeling I may get bored of it quickly as the novelty starts to wear off. The only thing that's really tempting me with Saints Row is the online play.

    I've played the SR demo quite a bit now & to be honest there's something about it that just isn't as fun as GTA, can't quite put my finger on what it is.

    The official website is now up incase anyones interested http://www.eidosinteractive.co.uk/gss/justcause/index.html

    The game looks like a cross between GTA, Farcry & Pursuit Force to me, From the videos it looks like he does more leaping around than Frogger!

    As already posted in the Gaming Special Offers section, you can preorder this game for £29.99 delivered from amazon at the moment. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...=sr_1_7/202-3508848-5447016?ie=UTF8&s=gateway

    Can't wait for some reviews to appear. I feel this game could go either way, awful or a classic, hopefully the later as it does look good.

    I'm behind a proxy filter at work and cant access any of the game site links. Can anyone give a summary of the game or cut and paste a preview from a gaming site?

    The Amazon description looks interesting and the gameworld sounds absolutely massive - surely the gameplay mechanic cant be the same as GTA/Saints Row?

    wow - thanks for that... sounds impressive.

    I wonder about the story and implementation of it on something that big...

    anyway, its a pre-order for me too - i'll wait till the demo comes out to make a judgement on whether I keep the pre-order or cancel it...

    looks interesting. Saints Row doesn't really do it for me. I had another try at the demo tonight, but got bored really quickly.
    Thanks for the info about the demo, will try that out.
    Nothing really grabbing me in the releases at the moment. Gutted to see that RS Vegas has been delayed :thumbsdow

    The demo video off the marketpace looks stunning on a 50 inch hdtv in 720p, forget the low quality PC trailers, really looking forward to it, and at £29.99 it's a no brainer.

    A streaming version of it is available here;
    http://www.xboxyde.com/news_3310_en.html
    And it's been edited together from lots of game play clips, I'm still going to wait for the demo, as September's already an expensive month!

    Interesting, but I still have absolutely no idea what to think of this game. Although that video does look nice, it also looks as though it could be very repetative. Guess we'll just have to wait & see when the demo drops on marketplace.

    Shame there isn't any live multiplayer, think it would've been great with the game setting, looks like a fantastic playground. If the game proves to be a hit though I'm sure that'll be something for the sequel.

    I gotta agree,I dont really know what to think although i'm sceptical about a game this size not having enough interactivity to fill the game world...

    the teaser trailers havent shown any NPCs that actually 'live' in the urban areas. A game world that immense needs people in it to give it a sense of being real... For example, the Oblivion gameworld is much smaller at 16 square miles and it can feel empty at times even with over 1000 NPCs...

    also... why is this game so cheap? I'm keeping my pre-order until I know more but might cancel if previews/reviews arent much cop...

    This is a strange one because the release is still a month away, right? If you check the box-shot on Amazon you can clearly see a 9/10 from 360 Gamer with a nice tag of "Bigger than GTA - Better than Oblivion - Dive into the best game yet on XBox 360".

    I didn't even know the game had been reviewed? :confused:

    well according to metacritic it hasnt yet - and metacritic are usually pretty quick off the mark.

    bizarre...

    Also, the price has risen today to normal Amazon price £39.99. I guess the special price was either a glitch or some kind of marketing ploy?

    Its because the magazines get there stuff quite early as they write there stuff about a month behind, so it could of been reveiwed in 360 gamer, but the mag has not been released yet. But the review was done and the magazine lets the game makers no there score so they can put it on the game case. So if it says a 9/10 then thats what 360 gamer have given it. As for the online reveiws there not out yet as they can be wrote then put up on the internet straight away. I myself am looking forward to this one and 360 gamer is one of the better mags(IMO)so thats a good score, cant wait.:)
