    Wonder how buggy this game is ??
    As Ubisoft have just admitted theres a crashing problem with the USA release of Ghost recon Summit strike - and of course its too late to fix the Uk version.

    Note the word 'SHOULD' be released on Sept 9th.... :nono:

    Fingers crossed!

    Funny, people I know who don't play Live but know I do, say 'get a life'. Not having had much to play on live recently, I've 'got a life'. But I don't want it anymore. I want a good Live game again.... :blush:

    I heard the demo was pretty buggy so I'll wait for a few reviews of the game before I pick it up. I liked Rainbow 6 3 but not enough to make me rush out for this. The main reason I'm interested is that it looks a lot more realistic that RS3 and I've heard it's a bit more tactical and that your tactics have an impact.

    Well got the demo and had a couple of games - Very disapointing to be honest. The menus are slow. In game the speed seemed really weird as the enemy team were zooming around at twice the speed of R6. The frame rate seemed jerky - animation was very glitchy, the game would freeze for a split second when you killed someone. Climbing a ladder takes 3 times as long as it did on R6.
    Graphics are dark and rather dull(using a new graphics engine) again this is only one level so hopefully theres alot better ones than this.
    Weapons were totally crap you couldnt hit the side of a barn door standing right next to it - BUT i'm guessing thats due to the Persitant creation mode where you have to earn Experience and gain new skills eg your aiming would increase etc.
    I'll still be getting the full game but will trade it in if its doesnt improve with the better game modes and levels.

    Along the same lines as Cap but maybe not as harsh. It was enjoyable but somehow didnt feel as intuitive or 'friendly' as Black Arrow. Graphics seemed to be inferior although as Cap said it was dark. To me it felt more like a Splinter Cell game, which I never took too. Explosions were crap and gunfire seemed to have no kick unlike its predecessor.

    Oh and the grenades, although more accurate due to a set of rings are like kiddies crackers. Hopefully full release may fare better.

    Matt

    P.S The demo is only an online team game where u head towards a yellow triangle to capture a canister and take it to the 'white triangle' within your view. No offline play at all. (that I could find anyway)

    persistant creation mode?

    that sounds great...not :rolleyes:

    so that gives the bloody yanks a week to build up their soldiers before us.typical.
    i hate games where you have to develop something.like bloody forza when everyones cars go flying past you.

    i aint got time to do that.:mad:

    im hoping this aint such a big factor in this because ive been looking forward to lockdown for ages.

    I was disapointed with this new version. I was hoping the graphics would improve over Black Arrow, but they look far worst. :thumbsdow Everything is a dark murky grey.

    I was going to buy this game but after playing the demo I have decieded not to. :nono:

    I also had trouble direct connecting? Any one else experiance this? :confused:

    As far as I know, that demo is around a year old. Read into that as you will.

    Also remember, that this has been delayed for over 6 months so I would say that it was probably to fix all the issues encountered

    I think they will have their work cut out to pull this title around. I will wait for the xbox360 instead and see what it has to offer. I can't hack the aging graphics on the xbox any more, back to my pc untill the 360 arrives. :(

    Forever the optimist eh Holte :hiya: .

    Surely it doesnt make any sense at all to release an old demo with bugs. This will, if anything diminish sales when the corrected version is released.

    If you see me on send me an invite i might come over for a game - then get kicked back to the dashboard as you can only play one game on this crappy demo.
    Hopefully the finshed game will be better as this demo really feels like a poor PS2 game. I've tried out the Napalm Grenades and they look sh## just like the normal grenades.

    Malone same here - no voices or anything - couldnt even hear the grenades ??
    Yep you can stay in doing that but its bloody silly way of doing it.
    The Rumour i heard is on Rainbow 6 Breakdown on xbox 360 - you have to press X, Y, Wink twice with your left eye into the 360 camera, then waggle the left thumb stick for 2 seconds - if you dont do this you get kicked out of the lobby and cant play another game of R6 for 48 hours.

    :D Sounds like UbiSoft ;)
    No doubt there will be a patch for the stick waggling.
