If you have a 360, then this game is a must have. Heck, if you don't have a 360... then this game alone is reason enough to go out and purchase one..

Gotta get back to the mayhem!!!

I picked mine up on Wednesday and I must say it's one of the best looking games I have played in some time. Not to mention it is just overall awesome!

Totally, this game is just insanely good. One of the few times a game has lived up to the hype.

Yeah.. It's pretty tough to beat RAAM even on Casual.. Took me a lot of time of constantly trying.. There are a couple different strategies/weapon combos that I've tried that work fairly well..

When I bought this game, it was a toss-up between Call of Duty 3 and GoW.. So I bought both.. Currently playing CoD3 on Veteran difficulty.. Just beat the American campaign, now on the British..

Yep,
I picked of COD 3 also, but it's still in the plastic along with Fear and NFS Carbon. That's just how much fun GOW is.

I don't much care for CoD3. They fixed a lot of things that were really bad about CoD2, like the very generous sniper rifle, but they took a lot of the good things out, like the radar showing gunshots, 1 smack kills, and vaulting obstacles. It seems like they tried to mimic battlefield with Farcry: Instincts like gameplay. Not ot mention that those instant spawns are just plain dumb, in my opinion. Maybe I'm being harsh but it doesn't help when 5 minutes into the game (on multiplayer) I get stuck IN a wall by trying to hop on a motorcycle.

I don't know what you're talking about not being able to vault over things.. You can, it just doesn't say "hold A to jump over".. As far as the AI goes, it's identical t o CoD2 if you ask me.. The game in general is just a step up of CoD2... A lot more detail, better graphics, the particles/debris effects are cool too.

There are "1-smack" kills still too.

The multiplayer doesn't have the CoD feel to it, but it's still really good.. The maps are too big I think. They should at least have a couple small ones for those days that are slow on Live when t here are 5 people in a game. There still is the radar that blips red whenever it goes off.. Maybe the games you played, the host had it turned off?

Actually, that's good to hear. I was playing some 1v1 with my roommate. I guess we need to mess with the game options more. Still, though, what did they do to the sniper in CoD3? That's a little over the top don't you think? I know I cited this as a good thing, but all they really had to do was make it a 1-shot head/body shot; 2-shot anywhere else, which it seems they did; but they didn't have to make it nearly impossible to aim. BTW have you noticed if the trench gun has been weakened at all? It really annoyed me how overpowered that was in 2.
