i think your report would have more merit if you gave reasons behind your brute opinions as to why the games "blow"? are you even a fan of the series? i just figured i would ask since its "official" now. in regards to gun the only negatives i have heard about the game is the games length and lack of replay value, the story, gameplay, premise, etc. have been well recieved by those who have played the game. next time you should put more thought into your post if you wish to be taken serious
"if you're already familiar with the other versions of Gun, know that the only real differences are that this port runs on the Xbox 360 instead of other platforms, and it also costs more"
"When you play Gun on an HDTV, low-resolution textures and character models shine through, undermining what was a great-looking presentation on other platforms.Seams in textures, some weird shimmering, clipping, and other little graphical flaws just get magnified.On top of that, when running in true HD resolution, for some strange reason the game comes out looking extremely dark compared with other versions of Gun and other Xbox 360 games (we confirmed this using Xbox 360s, component cables, and HDTVs). Or, if you play it on a standard television, Gun barely looks different from what you could be playing on a PS2 or an Xbox, except that it forces you to play in a letterboxed widescreen mode, for whatever reason. It doesn't really suffer from frame rate drops like the other versions do, but the frame rate still isn't fast and smooth, on the whole. So even though the quality of the visuals may be technically better on the 360 than other platforms--some of the textures are definitely sharper, for instance--the game just doesn't look at all flattering compared to other Xbox 360 titles, and it isn't going to live up to your expectations of what a game for a powerful new console ought to look like"
Want some complaints? there you go
we can argue this as much as we want but ultimately Gun and THAW are just victims of a spectacular launch and as a result they have to endure sharper scrutiny. I mean with all the competition of great games for the 360 how can you recommend these games to anyone but the die hards that havent bought the game yet? Thats why they deserve the gamespot score.
