Well, may as well be the one to start the thread..
Picked up my metal box special ed this morning, and played it for about 2 hours when I got home.
I spent about 20 minutes just setting up my characters appearence alone.
I haven't gotten very far int he game yet thoug what I have seen is pretty got. I have noticed some little lgitches, but generally speaking it's nice and smooth even with lots of killing and blowing **** up going on.
Love the dual wield thing - it seems they have designed the weapons so that you can no longer just run around with the pistol aiming at heads, you kinda need to know what weapon does most damage to what type of enemy and use appropriately.
Had a quick run through of some multiplayer levels, and some of the oldies are back (blood gulch, battle creek - though they are renamed - with some amusing little entires about them "We can't quite figure out what this blood gulch was useful for (or something like that)) Want to get on Xbox live - but am not sure if the live download things makes it incompatible with a non live downloaded xbox (if you have ever tried to play system link with Mech Assault where one person didn't have the live download - you will know what I mean) But I'm so looking forward to playing this game on live...
I'm not hardcore enough to have finished the game (unlike some people I know) but I think this was money well spent.
Anyone else manage to pry themselves from the game have any opinions?
