Man XboxLive is dead right now, completely. I can't start the download and I can't even see my friends or messages. I WANT, no NEED to play this right now.

I got it overnight no problem. Probably started it at 1am GMT and it was done when i woke up.

It's extremely weird. Wouldn't call it an FPS as such, but it definately has a Condemned kind of feel to it so far as camera and the overall weirdness of it i.e. the ghosts and scenery falling around you.

I'm not overly blown away by it, but I'm gonna play again to see if I want to buy it.

The demo is pretty amazing. LE copy is on back order. You'd have to be crazy to skip this one.

I was just gonna hold off on getting any new 360 games until Halo 3, but I might have to pick this up. Bioshock is amazing!

The download speeds were terrible, but I just let it download while I went to bed, the new low power download mode is awesome.

Anyway, the demo...............outstanding. This is one game that can definitely deliver all thats been promised and then some.

The only problem I found was not being able to see your legs when looking down, I imagine this will be fixed in the full game. laugh.gif

no legs? thats not new, dont expect it. tongue.gif the atmosphere was amazing though, the old music and 60s era feel man o man. i hope there is some puzzle solving though, it went from awsome exploration to just killing things quick. hope fully there are things to do besides kill things. and the graphics are stunning, i especially loved the opening swim =)

I agree! The demo was awesome. gfx are super smooth and detailed, another step up in the gfx stakes methinks! Very atmospheric too.

Wasnt too sure about the "hacking the bots" puzzles tho. Looked a bit out of place.

All in all, a big fat thumbs up! beerchug.gif
