  1.  Graphically unbeatable, not so much on gameplay...

    Posted: 

    As said in the title, this game is by far the best graphics the PS3 has to offer so far. Sometimes it really is like watching a CGI movie.

    However the campaign is very very short. It can be easily completed within 8-10 hours. Even the highest difficulty doesn't pose much of a challenge if you are used to shooters.

    Thankfully, the online is a lot of fun. It will keep you entertained for hours and hours and the maps are excellent. The only downside is that it can be very hit and miss on who gets the kills in a 1 on 1 duel. Sometimes you blast someone 2 or 3 times with the shotgun, only for them to turn round and kill you with 1 shot. It does get very frustrating at times, but doesn't take away from the fun too much.

  2.  Can't work out what the big deal is.. ?

    I got this game bundled with my XBOX 360 along with 2 others, but was eager to get into this after all the hype. I can honestly say, it is probably the most over-rated game I've ever played.

    Fair enough, I have never played Halo or Halo 2, so I'm not very in the loop with the story. But aside from that, the graphics are dull and lifeless, the guns and AI are poor, and the gameplay doesn't have any depth to it. I was hoping the multiplayer would save the game for me, but that too is boring, and lacks an inch of depth. There is literally nothing to it apart from a few people shooting at eachother.

    I'd avoid this at ALL costs, even if it was a fiver, nevermind £39.99.

  3.  One of the best games around.. probably..

    Definately 100% a must have game.

    The first thing I noticed is the huge graphics improvement. The detail is so much more crisp than Gears 1. The story is very good and in my opinion better than the first.

    One gripe I do have is that it is far too short. I completed it on the 2nd highest difficulty in 2 days, and I wasn't even on it for the whole 2 days. The ending was very abrupt and sudden. But there is always the multiplayer! Which is amazing. (But VERY difficult).
