OK, I picked up the game today at lunch, popped it in as soon as I got home...after about 2-3 minutes of play im like "wow...this sucks." ok, ok..jesus..gotta give it time right... after about 1 hour of play..."wow..this still sucks..maybe more than earlier" i dont see myself spending too much more time with this game. huge dissappointment..gonna just exchange it for State of Emergency.. --------- Details: Dont get me wrong, the game looks absolutely awesome. Some of the best graphics Ive seen to date..but there are alot of shortcuts they take that get annoying real fast. Lots of "heat waves", lens flare, TONS of sparks type effect like a lot of light bulbs just popped. It all gets anoying quickly. There is sooo much chaos going on..that it actually takes away from the game..because I couldnt tell what was going on half the time. The control isnt that great...and all in all..it left me with more of a desire to pop GTA3 back in. sorry if I sound like an angry reviewer that just wont give this game a chance..but Im sure that if I come back and edit this post in another week..there wont be much changes to it. ohh yeah..and there was no Widescreen option, but the game is in DD 5.1 which was neat. (no sound mode option, just sound volumn controls etc). I dont know if it auto detects your setup and does Widescreen automatically..i doubt it. Looked fine in "stretch" mode. Most xbox games do though. Please RENT this game first!! You will have lots of fun during the rental period..and Im sure you wont be too upset come time to return it.
