Hmmm... I find it strange how so many people forget fantastic shooters such as shogo, and both NOLF titles... I never played tron 2.0 but it got good reviews and my room mate had fun with it...

Hmm... I've been awaiting this announcement for a very long time. I got into the GR series only last year but found my self totaly immersed in it. I hope they put the improvements in that have come up on the boards at ghost-recon.net.

I just hope they don't make it less simulator like so many games have done... don't developers understand that this doesn't work... my examples: Interstate 82, and Deus Ex 2

But this line...
"You will truly feel like you are the hero of a near-future war movie when playing this game."

...scares me. What are they gonna do? Turn this into a prescripted clone of Medal of Honor, I hope not! I loved medal of honor for the 5 hours that it lasted but loved GR a lot more for the countless hours I got out of it.

This was around in the beta too... it only happens on Nforce audio cards I think, or maybe its with the Audigy 2... can't remember... but yea there is a work around, simply go into your computer's audio hardware accleration and turn it down one notch... I think this is done in the direct x control panel but, again, I can't remember.

Hmm.. guess I'll be getting the game in mid April then...

Biggest mistake with making save points in a game like this is there's no guarentee that you'll actually hit any. In the first demo I got half way though the map before getting to a save point... the reason being that if I'm trying to infiltrate an enemy base I'm not going to stick to the main paths which seemed like where all the save points are located.

Definatley worth buying though, I don't think the reviews have given this game fair marks in multiplayer though. I beta tested the game and loved the multiplayer and am looking forward to future mods. Huge potential there.

No, I didn't dl 1.5gb in 10 minutes... thats the size of the directory NOW, a lot of that is other mods, maps, sound packs, texture packs, etc. You don't even have to have the full game downloaded to start playing... I pretty sure that it just downloads what you need first of all and then grabs the rest of the game in the background.

yea, it does download the whole thing but I guess it doesn't need to have it all to start playing the games... a lot of those files are maps and sounds from servers as well as textures from other CS and DoD.

I like the fact that I downloaded a 300kb or so file to install it and was playing counterstrike in 10 minutes without having a previous install on my machine... I like how you can now preorder game on it too... I like how it has always updated quickly and without hassle...

in fact, the only problem I've ever had with it is the friends network... half the time it show me or my room mate as being online but we have to sign off and on again to show up in each other's buddy lists... also, its very regular that I can't even sign on to buddies but I can still play all the games fine... The buddies list is the only thing that needs improvment....

I also like how all I had to do was find my CDkey and instantly I had half life, cs, and the other mods available to me without ever needing to put a freekin cd in my computer....

... I don't like how it takes up 1.5 gb on my computer...

Ok, I'm done... maybe you all who hated steam several months ago should try it again.

Hey Ant, the build that the demo uses only officially supports v3.9 of the ati drivers... but I have no problems with my 9800pro using the latest drivers.

Not really a fair comparison in Farcry seeing as the demo was sent with incomplete renderer code. If you go to the Farcry forums you can find config file hacks to turn on the beta nvidia code to make the game look better. Heck, you can also use OpenGL instead of Direct3d and it runs much faster but crashes after five minutes.

Crusader required 16mb of ram when I only had 8... how gluttenous... even pc gamer said it had high requirements.

Obviously our current technology is not ready for such a game.

There is also a really cool looking Ghost Recon mod (the perfect engine for this series)

I don't have any links but surely it can be found through google.

I was really scepticle of the idea at first but then I tried it just to start playing CS again(when I heard all you needed was the cd key and no cd). It downloaded half life in about 5 minutes, and downloaded CS in about 5 as well, simply amazing and the only trouble I've ever had with it is the friends section is screwy, I often have to signout and back on to see if any friends are online, and sometimes it just wont sign on to friends thing. But thats a small hickup.

The reason they are announcing this is the X community has been looking forward to it for a long time. (I check their site daily for news on it) The original X started out as a bench mark, then became a rolling demo and finally a game. They aren't going to add any blur effects to this at all, they just want it to be something so you can make sure your computer can run it. This is non interactive but is actually the real game engine so if it runs on your computer it means the real game most likely won't crash. So at least with this method you know the game has a stable engine.

Also, this does not mean they aren't bringing out a real demo. They will be but real demos take a lot more time to test and debug.

Plus this is something the community actually asked for because they want to see something and seeing as the developers are too busy finishing the game to put together a real demo I think its great that they at least offer something.

They have also made available some very nice, high quality movies already so I don't know what you all are crying about. What other company has giving out screenshots, movies, a nonplayable demo, and then a real demo? Baldur's Gate is the only I can think of.

Really now, this is just a bonus compared to what most companies put out.
