Graphics. Simply Stunning. UNBELIEVABLE !
Sound. Basically Realistic.
Amazing Frame rate. No slow down at all even with EVERYTHING going on.
Amazing physics engine.
None with the game per se ... Although it's a victim of it's own success online. Too many people playing it causes server problems.
I have been waiting for this to come out for a long time. I think we all had. We all downloaded the clips from XBOX LIVE .. and watched them in disbelief. Surely this game could not play as well as they showed with graphics like that .....
But it does. In fact it's better. I have not seen anything like this. It's like playing a movie. Literally. It makes all other games seem 'cartoony' in comparison. The movement of the players.. the surroundings move and s way.. the GUNS oh my god THE GUNS ... they seem so real and sound soooo amazing. You find yourself shooting around at anything.Everything. Just to hear it and see what happens. It even feels 'meaty' and real, which sounds odd when talking about a computer game; but it really does.
If you look across a street, those characters near to you are in focus.. those far away are blurred, you see the wind blowing dust about, bullets leave tracer, explosions make you duck, aircraft scream in overhead and it you jump, ALL AT THE SAME TIME. There is no slow down at all. I cannot quite believe myself.
Even playing online, things are the same. Nothing changes. The graphics and gameplay are as good as the single player. Even if you are in an 18 player game. No Slow down. No reduction in graphics or physics engine power.
This truly is the Next Generation of Console gaming.
The only problem is caused by the sheer brilliance of this game. If playing Multiplayer in the afternoon, when the Americans come on line, and the kids get home from school. There are just so many people playing that the main XBOX servers cannot cope and you get lag and disconnects ... However, I cannot blame or mark down the actual game for this... It's just XBOX LIVE need to sort it out and give us more server space .... NOW!
BUY IT NOW. This is the future of gaming, here today.
