So I just got my 360 last week, and as anyone would, I bought GoW with it. Now I like that game - and it looks great- but after playing Lost Planet, I had a lot more fun. This game should not be taken seriously. Sure, the cut-scenes are supposed to be all tough and demanding, but when it comes to gameplay, it's just over the top. Fly all over the place with your grapple, jump 6 feet in the air, drive around with mecs, etc. The AI aren't all that smart. They'll run from grenades, but just like lots of other games, they wont move an inch when their partner is sniped two feet away. For some reason though, jumping and shooting a dude with a shotgun in mid-air is extremely satisfing. To be honest, I don't care to much about the mecs. (especially the slow ones) I guess there movement is a little to 'wobbly' - if that makes any sense. The graphics are very nice. Awesome blur effects and I've never had those moments (like in Gears) when the textrures get all screwed up. The sound isn't all that great but the plus side is it never seems to get annoying. Overall, I've had a great time with this game and I will continue to play it online for a long time to come. Multiplayer is very straigt forward but luckily they don't take anything away that was in the single player part. It's hard to remember that we play these games to have fun - not to show off our graphics or anything - and when it comes to that, I've had the best experience so far.
