    So I have been playing the demo today and - apart from loudmouthed American screamer kids - I was enjoying myself quite well. Sooooo, do I want to buy it? Yes. But..... If there aren't any other EG people interested in it there really is no point is there?

    So who here has bought it or is planning to buy it? Of the 26 'friends' online, I counted only 5 playing it today. :/


    I'm swinging back and forth between buying this or doing something safe such as Forza 2 or RB6:V

    PS: My favorite tool? Glider + teleport = Instant sneak & death from above. \0/

    Just get a friend or two to get it and you'll be sorted. Go around all the rooms together as a party, it's great.

    I love shadowrun, but I must say you really should buy vegas first. One of the best shooters of all time. Was playing it again tonight, and I still can't believe how good it looks in places.

    Theres a whole bunch of us playing shadowrun tho so dony worry about not having buddies!

    Well I've gone in to HMV 3 times this week to make an "Impulse Buy" of this game but they havent got it in stock!!

    Probably will be in tomorrow to make it a double with Forza 2 .. then will waste more time over weekend deciding what to play than actually playing..

    You know, I'm not sure about forza. Somehow it feels slow. I mean you can drive at 200 kph but it feels like you are doing 20 kph.

    Anyone knows if the versions at Play Asia are UK compatible?

    It's all about Wii360. Mario Galaxy is game of the year, but I must be nearing 50 hours on VT3. Someone help me.

    While the demo (only played the tutorial so far) was better than I expected, it's not a buy for me at the current price with the amount of content they're delivering...

    Same here, drop it down to 25 quid or thereabouts and I buy.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    OK, having just had a chance to play the demo for the last couple of hours I have to say i'm very impressed. It's even making me re-think tomorrow's planned forza purchase (or at least put it off for a couple of weeks).

    If at least a few people from here are interested in partying up then i'll buy. More games should have party systems.

    I'm another maybe. Was before the demo but now I am slipping more towards a purchase.

    The lack of content and the high price are still holding me back at the moment but that may well change when I go to pick up forza from blockbusters this lunchtime...

    I predict a purchase especially after just watching the very poor weather forecast for the weekend here in the east midlands which, if true, will ruin all my current plans.

    As far as I understand, it uses the same party system as Halo, so you're fine in that respect.

    Actually it looks bloody good in a lot of places. With a game like this you want a clean and crisp display - which is does very well. There are also areas where the engine shows off what it can do - Temple Dig Site, Maelstorm for example. The frame rate in my experience is also rock solid.

    I do want it, but I'll wait for a price drop. Well, and I haven't had a go on the demo yet either... too busy playing Forza!

    Similar but not quite the same. Between rounds the game tries to balance the teams, whilst taking in to account the parties involved too. So it should try and keep you together, but you may get split across the teams too.

    It's frustrating, but I can see why they did it. Makes for some good match-ups rather than one team steam rollering the other match after match.

    Another option is to construct a party and play as a team against Bots. They are surprizingly good and make a good attempt at pretending to be human. The switch tactics and adapt well to what you throw at them.

    The problem with waiting for it to price drop is that when it does Halo 3 will be around the corner and no one will be playing it
