    They were very enjoyable games last night mate. Thanks for a good intro to world of multiplayer shadowrunning. The randoms we played with seemed to be generally ok. Certainly much better than the randoms encountered in most online FPS's.

    If demo players can play against full copy owners then add me to the list as I'll be on tonight as have a feeling a break from Forza 2 is required.

    GT - DelbertWilkins

    From the general good vibe towards this from the forum dont think it will be long before I upgrade to the full version

    To be honest I have not encountered many annoying folk on this game yet, a lot of people said they would arrive when the Halo3 beta ended, but it doesn't appear to be the case as of yet. I have however yet to fine a decent group of random folk on Forza 2....

    I think that those kind of people don't know about this game and don't care. This game after all is about teamplay and that's not something they are interested in.

    I've sent out several friend requests. Perhaps I'll see you all in game soon.

    Managed to get a quick go with the training earlier - then played an "online" game just against bots. Does the game still award achievements if you're not playing against humans?

    Apparently not, for obvious reasons as you could easily put them on easy, have your side full and the opposition a one man team.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I encountered this odd thing. I was playing SR tonight and a mate of mine joined my party (through the demo) and suddenly I was playing the demo as well. Annoying to say the least as it cost me several of the harder achievements (killing the flag carrier within 10 meters of the extraction point and winning the game ie).

    PS: People, before you start playing: be sure to set your party to open so EG people can join you.

    I had a good few games last night, didn't manage to get in any with you guys though.

    Managed to pick up the Telporter, Transporter and Shadowrun Fever achievements too.

    The reason people don't do this is that as soon as matchmaking gets slow, random yanks just start jumping into any party available from their "last played" list.

    Which is a good way to avoid the matchmaking issues, but it rather stifles the conversation some when random strangers, probably screaming kids, can just waltz in at any moment and start dribbling at you :)

    Ah right. I think we encountered that problem last night. Silly really, open should mean 'open to friends'.

    I will probably pick this up once the price drops a little further and when I've exhausted (see what I did there? ;)) Forza 2!

    I've never been spawn rushed and I've played every day since launch. You must just be unlucky, haha. My games have all lasted quite a while actually. So much so that I always keep a book to skim through next to me.

    Brilliant game. One of the best multiplayer games I've ever played on an Xbox.

    So hows this working out for people nowadays... I was loving it, but Forza came out, which consumed a lot of my time and the last time I went back every single game I played was two teams of nothing but elves spawn-rushing, which got very tiresome very quickly...

    Have the idiots ruined another perfect game, or is there hope on the horizon for people who like playing rounds that last more than 30 seconds?

    Most games I played are pretty balanced with lot's of peeps that have skills not directly related to killing. You played the demo I guess? The limited character classes are a problem there yeh.

    Quoted for truth. I seriously don't get the reviews from the likes of gamespot. At least EG said that it was a great game but a bit expensive which I suppose is true.

    Got mine yesterday, what a great game. The balance seems great. Impressed by the way it encourages team play.

    Anybody here play in the UK daytime? As I'd love to play with some EGers but time differences often make it hard for me to meet up.

    I am sometimes on around 3-4pm GMT but I might have to quit at a moment's notice. If I see you online I will try to join you.
