    IGN really likes the PS2 version of the game - an overall score of 9.2.


    Presentation
    Everything is quick: Load times, respawn times, animations, etc. Good all around.
    8.8
    Graphics
    High resolution textures and great animation are slightly thwarted by generic characters.
    Still, a respectable looking game in every way.
    8.5
    Sound
    A great hybrid mix of themes for each level. Great sound effects.
    8.8
    Gameplay
    State of the art console first-person shooter action: The popcorn multiplayer is deeper than
    before and the single-player missions are just short of excellent.
    9.3
    Lasting Appeal
    An enormous amount of replay value with tons of cheats, easy, medium, and hard
    missions (with changing objectives), and 120-plus characters.
    9.7
    OVERALL SCORE (not an average)
    9.2

    That'll do nicely...some serious multiplayer sessions ahead [​IMG] and a decent single player game too!

    I hope the XBox version fairs as well. I've played the demo's for both the XBox and the PS2, and the differences weren't that glaring. I'm still planning on picking up this and Hitman 2 for the XBox this weekend ...

    When is TS2 coming to XBox? I've heard Oct. 15 from Software Etc., but I just got off the phone with EB, and they said it was due out tomorrow. What do you guys think? I'm really looking forward to this as well. Can't wait to find out how the XBox version compares to the PS2. Later!

    As far as I know the Xbox version is supposed to be out tomorrow as well. If it's anything like the demo, then the two versions should be pretty close.

    The PS2 version of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 got great reviews, but the XBox and GCN versions didn't fair as well. Hopefully we won't see the same thing here.

    EBGames has the Xbox version coming out on Oct. 22nd. A very nice birthday present for me. I'll guess I'll have to fire up the demo for a few more dayz ...

    Electronics Boutique in Ottawa (Rideau Centre) says they will have XBOX copies on Friday while the Future Shop in Gatineau says next week. I am hoping I can get this game before the long weekend.
