I finally got a chance to try a 360 tonight. My impressions are as follows:
- The controller is brilliant. By far the best console controller of all time so far. Very comfortable, responsive, light, compact. Superb.
- Kameo. I was initially very skeptical, but the more I played the more I liked it. It was clever, fun, cute, very different, interesting, and seemed very much worth playing if you have a 360. The graphics were crisp, clear, sharp, very vibrant and colorful but not quite what I expect of next gen.
- Call of Duty 2. A superb port of the PC title. Controls slightly well, looks just as good if not better except for a few fuzzy edges and jaggies and a few low res textures-but some effects actually look better than my pc, and it runs MUCH better than it does on my pc.
Apparently my friend is going to open up Madden tomorrow to let me try it before we go camp out monday night so I can have even more reason to keep a console if I get it
