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).
Agreed. Go get it, and get it now. I picked it up Wednesday afternoon, and it is awesome. IMO, it was worth the delays. The game, as usual, looks spectacular, but it looks even more detailed than GT3. Lots of cars, lots of tracks.
