    I dont talk about system link or Xbox Live. I talk about the story line.

    Black is great. Weapons are like real. Ghaphic is good. Story line is way better than Halo.

    I just passed the 2nd mission. I can't wait to go home and play more.

    Yeah, a great game i thought.
    I like the military type better than Halo anyway.
    I forget how many missions there are total but i know i just went over a very large bridge into a fortress of some sort.
    Love the mine feilds, they are my favorite. One grenade and you can set off a whole chain reaction :)

    Yeah I just pass a 2nd mission where is the Fram. It is great.

    The only thing is bad about this game that it does not have system link and Live.

    Maybe the Black2 will have them.

    I'm upset..Not had chance to get back on it...I wanna do the black ops..(sulks!)

    Commandos strike force and Brothers in Arms..Road to hill 30 testing taken up all my week...

    Driver Parallel Lines not much of an improvement on 3..In and out of the cars a bit better but no swimming or jump!!

    Ice Age 2...Not just for the kids..Great fun but only a good evenings worth..Rent if possible..

    I personally would have been challenged to be any more dissapointed in commandos. Just absolutely dull.

    Black has some fun moments. But comparing it to Halo is no more valid than when people compared it with Killzone. They're all great titles, but they're nothing alike. The only similarities are that you are 1st person perspective, and you carry a gun to shoot with.

    That's not a huge similarity. You might as well compare Unreal 2 to Goldeneye for the n64.

    But yes, Black is a fun little romp. I just want more.

    The only real comparison to Halo is Half-Life.
    where Halo ripped all of their ideas off from to make their game.
    Halo & Halo2 were good, but Half-Life & Half-Life2 were great.
    That is why both 1 & 2 have won game of the year.

    But i had a blast playing Black, yes it is your basic military FPS but i thought it was much more fun that some of the others like Killzone. The graphics and sound in Black were just far beyond that of Killzone. Which i found to be highly overrated. Kill.Switch on the other hand was a great game. Psi-Ops was another one.

    Yo Steimy..now thats a game list there in itself...

    Agreed commandos is a real letdown, just doesn't seem to get exciting..very mechanical with no feeling of involvement,,but all said still better than Conspiracy,WMD..that was grim, a good example of how not to do it..

    Maybe if they get quick we can have another installment of Black..There seems to be a lot of plot potential hanging there, and I do enjoy a good shooter..

    Gave up with Driver..Just lost interest a few missions in..dull dull dull..

    Road to hill 30 never seems to get going....I played all night and.......It looked nice so I gave it a chance

    Now Tomb Raider Legend.out today ( I got it on Friday.."smug grin"..)..Save up your spare change guys..This one is truly a classic..67% completed and only one or 2 little moans, but It wouldn't be Tomb Raider without 'em...Feels and plays just like the old ones we loved on the ps1...Total classic all over!!Buy It! (or whatever ;)
