How can they make better use of the hd if only 30% of 360 owners have one ?

Those of us who own a premium or, indeed a core with a seperate retail hd, are the fortunate ones. Most people can't find them and have had to settle for memory cards.


What's to say they can't have options to allow faster loading by using the hd if you have it, and if you don't, then you just can't use the option. PS2 has a optional hard drive and some games had options to speed up loading by using the hd if you have one, why can't x360? If most people have the hard drive, then there should be this type of option in every game.

I havent messed with the 360 version, but I do have the PC version. Its pretty cool, graphics are a little better than Doom 3. I thought the game was fun, online is pretty crazy too.

I think its an above par game, especially for a launch title. If i had any complaints it would be with the framerate and the save system. I can deal with the framerate because on my machine it seems to get better after playing for a short period of time. The save system kills me and please tell me someone can relate with the part where you turn Strogg and then go through a ton of storyline only to die and have to start over where the marines save you. Now that shit kills me and makes me not wanna play but if they fixed that it would be a very impressive game.
PS: I think graphics are beautiful.

The frame rate doesn't bother me at all. However, the multiplayer is god awful. I tried to play three games today and it froze at the 'starting game' screen twice. Ridiculous, especially considering it takes about 5 minutes to even start a game.

unfortunatly one thing I think your going to need to keep in mind is this is a port A and B is also a launch game.. Dont expect a 100% gem from a game developed in a new one and released on a new system... Just wont happen.

Gotta say it,

I really enjoy this game. I never noticed any framerate problems until I played it in HD, on lower resolutions, it does refresh very nicely, with only smatterings of ratchet vision here and there.

I loved the story, or should I say lack thereof, just your run and gun FPS! The visual sites on the levels range from the grotesque to unique, made for a nice atmosphere.

I found it to be an enjoyable minfless shooter on my PC but on my 360 it's not worth the money even if I hadn't played it before. Steer clear guys.

Please oh please god let valve port HL2 to 360 and monolith port FEAR!
