yeah i posted either before or after everyone else did,im not sure,i was just really excited after playing this game. However,I do have to admit it started off a little boring, and was a lot of walking around,but now its pretty fun, and the aimer doesnt bug me as much as i thought it would. I would say its completely different from halo and dead to rights in that its not just blow em up combat, and not just about shooting techniques and flat out button pushing skill,like with DTR, I would actually compare it too silent hill 2 in some aspects in that it is scary, the actual fighting gamplay is good, but not great, but if played with good sound and the lights out,it can be very scary,i only wished that they didnt cut away to a movie everytime a new bad guy shows up, as u lose some suspense(i.e cutting away to the foul ball or home run movie/camera angle in a baseball game) but i suspect this may change as we get more into the game and the thing and little things arent so new that they must cut away every time.

all in all a solid buy im glad i spent 47 bucks on. my buddy bought dawn of fate and was quite upset over a waste of his money,boy i hope steel battalion is good,200 big ones for the game, and it comes with your own console,wow!
check ya later

I had always wanted to play this. To my memory I donít think I ever did. Had a PS2 but I know I never owned it and I donít think I ever rented it.

I tried to play it on XBOX back when it was released but it was too frustrating. Tried it years later after that and still the same. My brother has it in Storage. Hopefully LRG XBOX ONE physical edition is released, I'll get it. I love the movie, in my top 5.

I bought an Xbox to play this back when it came out.

I really dug it but got stuck somewhere near the end and didn't play it for like 5-6 months because I was so pissed off at it. Then picked it up again one day and got right though to finish it.
