Halo and DX:IW looked like fun too.
But Halo WAS fun, especially coop :).
I don't have an opinion on DX:IW yet, because I can't get it to run over 10-15fps even @ 640x480 on a 1.7ghz GF3Ti200. I know its not top of the line, but seeing as I get 60fps easy @ 1024x768 in any other game makes this a bit inexcusable. Oh well, I have a new upgrade cycle coming around march, or whenever HL2 chooses to release itself, though I may update early if I get excited enough about Far Cry.
By the way, did I mention the driving of the hummer off the cliff and ramming the helicopter with it? Big Style Points!!!
EDIT: if you can get a game to run at 1024x75
8 I'd be impressed, otherwise it was a typo This comment was edited on Dec 16, 00:35.
