The other one I posted wasn't valid for this site....this is cheaper with the £2 voucher anyway!

Was I the only person in the world who wasn't THAT impressed with GOW 1?

I thought it was OK, but nowt special

im about half way through this game and can truly say its worth every penny. probably the best shooter ive played tons of action and humour loads of fun to play and has a real epic feel. best game of 2008 closly followed by fable 2..

ps whatever you do dont buy far cry 2, most over hyped game i ever played it truly is awful, cant explore, each section of the game is devided into narrow roads and other larger sections all constricted by rocks. I thought the game would be immersive, there is no element of exploration its more on rails than bioshock for example in this type of game. why did they bother re moving the hud in game to make it feel more life like and then add signs posts in game to your safe house?! how gay and un realsitic is that!

Still only played the original once despite buying it at launch. God knows why I've ordered the second one.

loved GOW 1 , but for the life of me cant kill RAAM at the end, even after seeing the youtube glitch cheat to beat him......not friggin possible

It helps if you have an active co-op player as Dom (since he's as useful as a chocolate teapot otherwise). I did it purely as single-player but it took loads of turns to keep throwing the grenades then switching to sniper rifile. A friend of mine got stuck so I went online with him as Dom and it took us 2 attempts

Thanks OP. Loved the first one.

Don't forget Quidco !

yes, this game is very similar to the first but with very good tweaks, bout half way through it too and can say, it will rule for a very long time just like the first one has.

You're not alone, GOW was repetitive and boring, but it was better than Halo 3 which was a real steaming turd.

And a lot of people will be feeling the ban-hammer too.....

yeah ive played abit of it and it does seem a good game

didnt play the first one much as i only got a 360 about a year ago and was hooked on cod4

gonna play it abit more, had it a few days ago as it got leaked online

yes people may get banned if they play this, but so what, all you gotta do is sell the banned xbox, buy a second hand console only and flash that and your back onto live

it probably wont cost you a penny either

cheaper in the long run

maybe i would buy games if they were a tenner each (ive bought cod4 and pes08)

yus

I pre ordered my copy from lovefilm.com for £31.44 with the 10% discount code but that offer ended yesterday. So this might be the best price currently available.

I fully agree, but i am a little different as i use two consoles, one that is modded and not connected to the net(not banned, just havent connected it since i modded it) just for games i want to try and ones i will never play on live.

And another 360 that i solely use on live for games that i have bought, like GH3, Fifa09, COD4, mercs 2 etc.

I have a few brothers and my son likes to hook up with me too, (he has the same set up as me too)

Even when i have finished GoW 2, i will buy it and use it with my live xbox, so i can hook up and play the multiplayer with my family and boy.

So i do buy games, just not all of them

The only way I could do it was to get to the big gun near the back of the train.

As soon as it starts run as fast as you can to the concrete block right in front of raam + take cover behind it. Tell your team mate to attack raam + get his attention. When raam moves around one side of your cover go the other way and head to the big gun. You may have to wait in the light for a moment if the bird/bat things are attacking but then use the big gun and just keep blasting raam.

Took me about 4 tries doing it this way but it finally worked.

I'm really looking forward to this game, I came late to the 360 party and gears of war is easily one of the best games ever made + number 2 looks like being even better.

now that sounds cheap, im tempted to get it but

does anyone know if asda online game price is same as instore?
if it is then i could use my discount, iv never brought a game from asda and i seen its 34.93, which makes it 31.44. otherwise i want to get it from the hut.

im in the zone baby!!!!!!!!!!!!! cant wait

What are The Hut like for sending stuff out early?

shows you how much this game is wanted when a price of £32+ is considered hot.

I got the collectors edition coming from zavvi - £39'll do me

Order Collectors Edition from Zavvi for £39 delivered.

Good price for this one also.

Banned

great find thanks http://photo-shack.com/img/96ea64f3a1aa2fd00c72faacf0cb8ac9.gif

Excuse me ladies and gentlemen, i have been playing this game all day since i acquired the beautiful thing in my possesssion just yesterday.....and let me tell you, it is ****** INCREDIBLE.

lol just scared to go on LIVE, however people are playing on live already and not getting banned....anyone know about this? cheers.

Okay random person on a message board. It is getting fair reviewers but I will trust whatever you say.

I don't see why. I buy the games myself but I can see the appeal. Pirate three single player only games instead of buying them and you have paid for a new clean Arcade to take online.

@ alternate

lol just trying to save people the dissapointment I had with far cry 2. I loved Bioshock, gow cod4 etc they all have a high standard to follow. far cry 2 truly is a terrible game, ign and other places will give it a high review becausce the industry is corruppt just like any other, they dont wanna bite the hand that feeds them so even if a game is utter rubbish it it comes from a highr profile production house it will still get a fairly high review score...

Worst things about far cry 2.

Cars look and drive awful worse ever in game cars.
Totally on rails enviroments no exploration factor.
very dated graphics. yet runs sluggish on gtx 280!
they removed hud to improve realism, but added signs to your safe house, wtf is that about..

I think your claim about reviewers and moneyhats is unrealistic. More likely it is just that reviews are inherently subjective.

My mate is getting it anyway - I will try his out before deciding.

Good price, but with the Zavvi discount code via Virgin Money, you can preorder this for cheaper for £35.10!!!

driving isnt that bad, you do realise that its meant to be bumpy etc.. on that sort of terrain. you are only restricted in the first tutorial missions then can explore everywhere? maybe you should play it on a 360 wouldnt have the fuss with graphics cards then.

voted hot. i will be ordering this for my bf now :-D cheers.
