I had it in my hands today at EB.  But with Halo 2, Half Life 2, and San Andreas already on my plate.  Metroid Prime 2, Metal Gear Solid SE, and GR2 are going to have to wait I think.........unless GR2 is really good.  I'm almost wishing for some bad reviews  :oops:

Yup:

"Missions can be accomplished solo or with up to four people through split-screen, System Link, or Xbox Live and offer a wide variety of tasks. "

Coop over xLink anyone smile?

Nah...Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory comes out that month and that got moved back from a release this month on Xbox.  I think Ubi decided it was best to flee the scene and sharpen up the game and release it in the spring.

I stopped by the local EB to pick up HL2 today and saw four games (!!!) that came out today that I want to pick up: HL2, Vampire, GR2 and Call of Duty.  I was good and only walked out with my intended purchase though.  I still have 3 or 4 on the X-Box I'ld like to finish up before I get anything else.  Yeah, right.  Prince of Persia and KOTOR2 will be here before I know it.  At least I'm not in a committed relationship right now so I can make time to game when I feel like it. smile

I picked this up today and played a bit at lunch before I had to go back to work. First impressions: It is great. I really love Tom Clancy games because of the online co-op options. Red Storm is one of the few developers who seem commited to including co-op options in all of their games. GR2 has all of the co-op modes in the original like defend, firefight, recon, and missions. The enhanced voice support for commanding AI teammates is included ala Rainbow Six 3. You can also control specifc actions for your own character via voice. e.g. Saying "Secondary weapon." switches to your secondary weapon slot. You can change to the map, change your rate of fire, reload, etc. all via voice commands -- very cool feature. The graphics show some nice improvements over Rainbow Six 3 and the over the shoulder vs. first person view brouhaha that came up when the game was announced is no big deal. You can change to classic first person view via the options. Actually, I played with the over the shoulder view for the first mission and liked it. When you zoom in the reticle it goes to a first person view anyways. You can also pick up enemy weapons and use them.  Cool  

After about 45 minutes of play time, so far so good. With all of the online options this will be taking first spot in my Live game rotation replacing Halo 2 (gasp!) -- after a week of playing -- a game I think the hype machine ran away with. I much prefer UT2K4 for the gametypes Halo 2 offers.

Did I hear right, you can play co-op over Live?  Me and a buddy can run through the single-player game via Live?   Plz tell it is so.  Definite buy if that is true.

Yes you can play individual missions over Live, but you can't save the campaign like the single player game. Playing the campaign co-op is really just playing the individual mission maps in order. You have the same objectives and enemies as the single player campaign. This is how it was done in Rainbow Six 3. I think you have to unlock the missions for online co-op though by playing them single player first. I'll have to check when I get home tonight. Also, you don't get AI teammates on Live, but it is much more fun even if you only get one other person on your team. Four player co-op is tuly a blast because you can use real overwatch and fireteam tactics.

The plasma blade, a few plasma 'nades, and cloaking? You're a walking corpse. slywink GR2, Halo2 and MechAssault2  should complete my list of SEQUELS OF CARNAGE... or, just make Mastercard richer off of my interest(s).  :lol:
