Just beat the single player portion yesterday. Really good, but not really a sequel. Sorta like GTA Vice City was to GTA 3. Some new gadets and moves, but pretty much the same basic game with new missions. The story is done much better this time around, also. So thumbs up for the single player.
Then, today, I took it on Live. AMAZING. Easily the best reason so far for non-live users to get online. The levels are so well designed, and the spies and mercs are balanced just right. You can use so much strategy, so many different tactics, that the options are endless. It takes some getting used to, but once you know the level layout and how to achive your objectives....well, there is nothing I can imagine that could be more fun. Great month for my Xbox with this and Ninja Gaiden. Now bring me my Halo 2. My tag is Yakanator X if anyone wants to play a game.
[b]Man you are fast. I am only on the second board on Ninja Gaiden and Pandora Tomorrow is still in the case untouched. This has been a good month for games. I hope to see you on live whenever I get time to play (I average about an hour a week these days).
i haven't played SMB3 in a long time, but in the first lvl he seems to be flying after the initial jump, without a tail. like, he hits the peak of upness after the jump, then begins to hover as if he had the tail, but he doesn't.
