2401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 02, 2005, 06:35:02 PM
http://www.gamerankings.com/itemrankings/launchreview.asp?reviewid=473989

 One more review is in! 9.0 at 1up.
2402  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 02, 2005, 06:30:15 PM
I`m grabbing it in a few hours. I won`t be able to play until later though frown . I`ll giev some impressions after I do play though, if I can tear myself away from it.
  As far as teamxbox and Ign having inflated scores, I`ll agree with that sometimes to a degree. But, I`ve really never been mislead by any reviews. Sure maybe one review could be wrong, but more than one. I haven`t ever noticed that before. I know lots of words like Black and white will be thrown around here, but I loved that game! :wink: Plus, the early hands-on impressions have been great. Later.
2403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FINALLY! Brothers in Arms Reviewed! on: March 02, 2005, 09:58:35 AM
9.5 Presentation
Overall it's a very convincing and exciting production. The perfect blend of history and fun.
9.0 Graphics
The look of the game is undeniably authentic. Character models are the high point here but the environments and effects are also amazing.
9.0 Sound
Very immersive. The chaos of the battlefield never seemed so near. Voice work is good but the actual dialogue is hit or miss.
9.5 Gameplay
The action is intense and engaging. You'll find the tactical elements are simple to use and are well integrated into the overall shooter format.  
9.5 Lasting Appeal
The missions vary a little each time you play them and that's enough reason to try the campaign more than once. Multiplayer is a blast.
9.3 OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average) -IGN



Gameplay-9.5
Fantastic presentation, solid controls, and a story that rivals most motion pictures. The accuracy to the events and weapons provides an authentic feel that no other WWII game has managed. The multiplayer mode is a refreshing change from the typical deathmatches we see so often.

Graphics-9.2
Even with its framerate hiccups and few graphical anomalies, this is a beauty to play through. The soldier models are some of the most detailed to date and eerily lifelike.

Audio-9.3
The motion picture-like score complements the gameplay to perfection. The voice-acting is believable thanks to the edgy script. Turn up the 5.1 system because this is how a war game should sound.

Longevity-9.1
The single-player campaign should take you anywhere from 10-15 hours depending on the difficulty. There is plenty of incentive to play through at tougher levels with tons of unlockables. The multiplayer modes further extend the replay value.


Next-gen-9.1
While there have been many WWII FPS games before, none have managed to provide a more realistic representation than Brothers in Arms. The fresh multiplayer mode shows that FPS games aren’t just about deathmatches.
Overall 9.4-Teamxbox


 I simply can`t wait. I`ll not going to sleep much tonight! Tongue

SS2 was a great game. And I do have a beefy enough PC I believe. DX:IW is mine! I`ll grab it soon before it disappears from shelves, but play it in a few months once this backlog is gone :wink: .

Technically it doesn`t have coop, does it?

 I`m grabbing the xbox version later today. I`ll be on later at night . Rage if you wanna play a bit, my gamertag is Harpua3.
 
 This game looks juts as good as I expected. Both single and multiplayer look like a hoot. Anyone wanting to team up with me, send me a friends request if you want. Later.

 Ahhhh, and here`s this too http://reviews.teamxbox.com/xbox/900/Brothers-in-Arms-Road-to-Hill-30/p1/...I`m off to read.

 Wow a 9.3 and 9.4 so far! Good stuff indeed.

Did anyone here of this whole hospital lawsuit issue of his now? Wow :shock: !

that hospital lawsuit is a sad excuse for someone to try to milk a little more money out of the guy.  i don't see any way they could possibly hold him responsible for that woman's condition...she was in trouble no matter which room of the hospital they chose to keep her in.  now it sounds like the family is just trying to make some money off an unfortunate set of circumstances.


 I agree with that. Either trouble looks for MJ, or he goes looking for it.

Well, I also agree a picture is needed to figure this one out. Even looking average at best I wouldn`t think this would be needed to get a date. There`s a lot of average at best looking guys out there, not me of course Tongue .

This has to be cheap now. Does anyone recommend it at a cheap price(10-20 bucks)? I know when it came out it was buggy etc, but from what I`ve read they fixed most of those issues, is that true? I loved the first one, but I really don`t have any idea of what to expect here. That`s gotta be a good thing. Any comments?

2418  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Things that sound too good to be true... on: February 28, 2005, 09:45:58 PM
I always see "work from home and make $$$" and it always seems to be too good to be true. Has anyone around here had any experience with any of it? Is any of it actually legit? Also, what about that crazy guy with the money signs on his shirt(the who says you can get $$$ from the government for rent etc). Is that at all legit? I would think not, but...So spill the beans on this for me. Later.

I just got second sight and psi ops both for $30.00 new. Both are really worth it so far. Not perfect games, but LOTS of fun each.
2420  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi ops help on: February 28, 2005, 07:11:50 PM
Yes there are but...the vents have a cover that need lifted to get into(or so gamefaqs wants me to think). So I can`t seem to lift the vent cover and move the box over at the same time. Only one thing can be moved at a time... :cry:
2421  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi ops help on: February 28, 2005, 05:32:01 PM
Hmmm. I didn`t think of that for some reason...Judging by the faqs that isn`t the way to do it. I`ll give it a go though when I play next though. Thanks.  Does anyone else have any other ideas in case that`s not it?
2422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Psi ops help on: February 28, 2005, 09:55:44 AM
I looked at gamefaqs but all the faqs were useless on this part anyway. SPOILERS!!! If anyone cares :wink: )...



 I`m very early on where I need to get into a dudes office and there are vents on the wall that you can move with TK, but I have no clue on what to do. I can lift the vent cover, but I can`t seem to find a way ot go into the vents. All the faqs say thats what is needed to be done, but not how to do it... Does anyone know what I`m talking about? If so, please share :wink: . Thanks a bunch.
2423  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What Xbox Live games are you playing? on: February 28, 2005, 09:05:51 AM
I`m still not sure. Xbox or PC of BIA??? This week, on my bday with full voice support out of the box w/ live! vs. pc in a few weeks, not on my bday...and 3rd party voice(I think anyway). The xbox version has been pulling me over that way. Not sure yet though. :?

The PSP lauch games are mostly shit anyway.


*cough* fanboi *cough*  :wink:

Seriously though, I don't know how you can claim the PSP launch games are mostly shit. I think this is one of the most impressive launch lineups for a system, handheld or not, ever.

Compare it with the launch lineup of the DS....now that was mostly shit. I bought the DS, not for DS games (since there are basicly none that interest me at all right now) but for the GBA games.

 
 They are all mostly shit imho. There`s alot of them...I won`t deny that. It`s the quality I think that will be lacking.

Quote from: "Cleric7"
I think, in the end, quality software is going to be the deciding factor (at least for us gamers  smile )

I bought a DS at launch and have tried most of the games that have come out for it. Out of those I would say that only Zoo Keeper is a great title, with Touched and Mario having their moments (well, the mini-games in Mario anyways) That's a pretty underwhelming start--and this from someone who really wanted it to succeed right out of the gate. Looking to the future, there are a few titles like Advance Wars, Animal Crossing and Pokemon (NOT Pokemon Dash -- a proper Pokemon RPG!)  that are promising, but I get the distinct feeling that this will be another Nintendo platform where we wait for months in between quality games.

The PSP, on the other hand, has a very impressive lineup of games coming. We'll have to wait on reviews for many of the launch titles (I am particularly leery of the EA sports titles), but I'd be willing to bet that there will be at least a half dozen or so of the 24 launch titles that score in the 80-90+ range (Ridge Racer and Lumines being my top picks) After launch, the PSP has a VERY impressive lineup of games coming: Grand Theft Auto, Gran Turismo, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy (down the road) and a slew of others. I don't think it will be valid to say that the PSP doesn't have the "genre of game I like", because it will have plenty of games of every genre!!

And let me tell you, just wait til you see that screen!!! :shock:  :shock: biggrin


 I`ve played a PSP(at EB) it really just doesn`t do anything for me. I have a cube, xbox, pc and ds. If you noticed I don`t have a ps2. Most of the psp games are similar to what`s on the ps2. And I guess that`s just not my cup of tea.
 And seriously those launch games DO NOT impress me. Metal great solid card game...I don`t like metal gear solid(minus the 1st one) and while the games graphics are good, it just doesn`t look fun for me at least. The racers don`t look that good either, other than gt mobile. And that is really not my kind of a racing game. And then the other stuff looks blah.
 I`m not saying it`s a bad system...but for the price it`s going for, and the fact that I don`t want a mp3 players, movie players and moving parts on a handheld gaming machine...I just don`t see why many people are going nuts over it.
 I like innovation. The touch screen and the duel screens are really interesting. There is SO much potention here it`s crazy. I think even if most of it never sees the light, we`ll still see great amounts of new, fresh ideas. Add in my backlog of gba games playable on the machine and I was sold.

Well, the main reason I ask is that I don't have convenient access to my Xbox anymore, I am 100% Ps2 right now.

Thanks for the replies. I'll give it a shot sometime.


 I noticed that. You added me to your friends list, or vice versa. Then I never saw you online :cry: .
 Why no access to Xbox anymore?

I still have the 9700pro available. To tell you the truth I got it off of newegg.com and I`m not sure of the manufacter. I know that it IS a 9700pro128mb card. I still have the box it came in(not a big video card box but a shipping box they used for it),the cables, the instruction manual, and the driver disk etc.
 Here`s that info.

 I have a feeling that it will cost more than what you guessed. Give it a shot though. Get back to me after take a look. Thanks, Andy.
