You'll get a lot of +1s from this one...:)

I wish I got it, but I wanted a membership to the climbing club more....299 dollars = ouch.

Is the single player any good?

Why are you posting here? now? go out and play the game fool!

I love it, the skull system is back, and now you have a choice of when and where to activate the skulls, there is a new aspect to single player, its the metagames on every level, basically everything can have a point value, such as: kill hunter, or kill teammate (neg points). And well you strive to get a certain ammt of points and its quite fantastic, oh and 360 achievements are always fun.

The forge is a do all map editor that you can play either after you create the map or during.

Basically you switch between spartan and guilty spark, as guilty spark you can't attack but you can summon stuff such as vehicles and weapons and teleporters, then instantly switch into spartan and use what you made. So, you need a rocket to take down that banshee, no prob, press d-pad up, x, spawn a rocket launcher, and take down the banshee.

There are new game modes, (and the old are back) so: slayer, Oddball, CTF, Assault, juggernaut king of the hill, territories, are all the nice old ones, then I think VIP is new (kill the vip for points, vip has overshield, 1 vip per team), and infection (my fav) Each player starts either a zombie or a human, with both species having very different attributes. Zombies score by killing humans humans score by killing zombies any human killed by zombie becomes zombie.

Single player is nice...just great.

Graphics: MY EYES ESPLODED

Sound: it's like listening to a symphony of dying grunts, (that occasionally yell after you kill a fellow grunt: He was my nipple buddy).

Story: 10/10 no spoilers sorry.

Co-Op, split screen: 2nd player is part of the story and is in the cinimatics :) X-Box Live: 4 player (other 2 players also incorporated into story nicely)


SO did I get my moneys worth?


HELLS YEAH

Will I get fat and get carpel tunnel

HELLS YEAH

should you get it?

I'll leave it up to you

Haha, I was just worried it wouldn't be worth it without Live. I don't have it yet, no money.

I just got done playing my first little bit of the game. It's amazingggggggg! Its awesome, I can't wait until I play 4 player online co-op. I just played for about 3 hours, maybe four, and i still have the impulse to keep playing. And I shune those who were worried about the graphics, it's gorgeous. And the charecter AI is amazing. On the first level a brute threw down a bubble shield, and two grunts ran in, so the brute ran in and threw both the grunts out. The grunts screamed "noooooo" and died quickly. I've never seen that before in a game. The enemies actaully interact. Theres so much new stuff and I love it all. Although I'm a little mad that theres no SWAT.  :'(  :'(  :'(

All in all is def a 10 out of 10. Woth every penny.

Since all the gamers are posting here i thought i might mention, you should all check out "Assassins creed" You tube has a nice 5 min demo of them playing the game. Im sure you will find out why i love real quick.

The hard ending is only true if you are aroused by cortona doing a murmakil

lol, Moa.. sounds like the traditional fan boy speak right there..

I just got the game, it's very nice.. played a bit of the system link, it's very nice... still have to try the online multiplayer though (can't cause they want to play guitar hero, but whatever, I'll get back to it later...)

Add me : Lethal R2D2 , whenever you guys get online, cause I won't be logging on for about an hour

I'm working on getting live right now, but the campaign is awesome.  I'm only on the 6th(?) level, cause I haven't had the time to play.  I should be on live this weekend, so I'll post my Gamertag then.
