    From what I've seen it looks like a must have.

    I'm definitely getting it. I didnt think Id like Ghost Recon. I picked it up on a whim, and I played it more than any of my other Xbox games by far. I love 1 shot 1 kill. I have Medal of Honor, and i can't stand it because I have to shoot guys what seems like 20 times. I would have never have thought I would love a tactical shooter the way I love Ghost Recon. Oddly enough I didnt like Splinter Cell, but Rainbow Six has been my most anticipated game other than Halo 2. Does anyone know for sure what day the new Rainbow six comes out on?

    I'm all over it. Like Scott, I didn't think I'd love GR as much as I did, but I picked it up after everyone and their mother told me to. I really do enjoy it. I was following the hype for Splinter Cell for a while, and I picked it up on release day. I really haven't played it that much. I'm just not that big of a fan. I like the realism of it--the game looks incredible.

    After playing the RS3 demo, it looks as though it takes all of the good things from both games. I can't wait!

    I bought it for the PC many months ago. Does that count? [​IMG]

    Assuming that the PC and console levels are the same, a lot of the levels are pretty well done. But it's still not a lot more than Rogue Spear with an enhanced engine and new levels. It's still great for multiplayer, though.

    You can't really compare it with Splinter Cell, though. Splinter Cell is more of a mix of Rainbow Six and either Thief or Deus Ex.

    I'm getting it. But I preordered something for the first time in my life, so I have no idea when I'll get it as it's not from a big name store.

    I was in Gamestop last week for Crimson Skies and the manager talked me into reserving it and let me have the demo. Now I'm not into squad-based games at all. I don't own any. But last night one of my brother-in-laws was over and we gave it a spin. Talk about an adrenaline rush! I was debating on using the reservation for something else, but after last night I decided to go ahead and pick it up.

    Y'all do know that this game will include voice commands for your squad using the Xbox Live headset as well, right? Some may have missed it--it's touched on in this article.

    Rodney K posted it a while back. If it works well, that seriously kicks ass.

    It comes out this week? I'll get it... I'll trade-in Ghost Recon for some credit.

    Boy, this week is expensive for games and DVDs. Guess I better save a few for my Xmas wish list.

    How many people can play co-op or multi-player on one xbox at a time?

    I went to Best Buy today to pick this up, and they told me this wouldnt be in until next week. What a bummer. If anyone gets this today, let me know. I may have to go somewhere else.
