    Is there a load of forced / close combat in this?

    This game is excellent, so tense all the time. Only have 2 of my chums playing/played it(out of 90 odd)it really is a lot of fun.

    @ monk
    Yes there is a bit, but with the ability to lay various traps it makes it a lot of fun. I have had to replay a few areas a few times, but the autosaves have been kind.

    Cheers, think that's enough to sway me. Traps = fun. Think the last sniper game I played was Ghost Warrior and that was cack!

    Just completed. Played for nearly 13 hours
    Excellent game, once you complete you get a "horde" mode as well. I only lasted 4 waves mind you ;)

    I may go back and get some level specific cheveo's or I might not. Really glad I rented it, if it gets meaty dlc I'm sure I will re-rent at some point.

    Realy like the online. Skipped past campaign co-op and did the three Overwatch missions last night with FlexibleFeline (one spots the other snipes). Some very close calls at the end of those missions.

    Also tried one game of Bombing Run, which is likely to become a whole new addiction. Had no idea a countdown was actually going to start midway through - we made it with five seconds on the clock.

    I adore this; it's everything I hoped for in a sequel. Even Hitler has already said goodbye to his Nazi ball(s).

    I'm getting really in to this now... setting up escape routes, getting my timing down etc..

    There are a few things that I would like changed, like the AI once you've fired your first shot being able to pinpoint where you are no matter how good your cover is..

    That said.. I shot a guy who was lying on the rooftop and above from a few hundred yards away, upward, with wind etc.. right through his eye as he looked in to his own scope.. Love it.

    Playing through this on elite this time(only the 2nd mission in mind you)not too taxing as yet, I'm sure it will be. Death certainly comes a lot quicker as does wasting ammo going for head shots, still lots of fun though.
    Did you guys find all the bars of gold and wine (without guides) I only have 39 bars and 12 wine, not that I'm too bothered, just imagine they must be out of the way.

    Played some various online modes. Horde with a guy who sent me a message saying "he had seen some shite before but I was even worse! :) what is he fucking on about I got him the cheve for firstaid (you know the one)

    Had more fun with co-op with another random.

    Re the killcam, the exit wounds look nasty as hell.

    Does anyone else feel a bit guilty about the number of regular poor bastards just caught up in the hell of war you end up killing?
    Not to mention all the supposed allies you kill?
    Just me?

    Brutality of war innit. Can't make an omelette without bursting some testicles, etc.

    Loving this, the AI is the only cause of frowns so far.

    Second level, after taking out the first four guards.... I hit a trigger point which released a bunch of guards including one on an MG42 who all seemed to have been laser guided to my position firing away...restarting and hitting that same trigger unleashed the second time round just the 2 guards who were oblivious. With nothing as far as I can see between each approach, that is a little annoying.

    Despite this main annoyance, I still can't get enough of it so far just a shame the multiplayer didn't make it to consoles.

    Anyone know how to 'Secure The Plaza'? I've killed everyone but for some reason it's not letting me progress further..
  • Deleted user 13 May 2012 08:02:59
    That happened to me once - it's a glitch I'm afraid. I reloaded, did it again and the checkpoint triggered.

    Is this an easy game to get to 1000 on the 360? As is often the case for me with 360 games, difficulty of Achievements is the key factor in my decision of whether to purchase, rent or neither. How long did it take you guys to complete?

    Im about half way through on elite difficulty and so far its took about 5hrs.
  • Deleted user 9 July 2012 16:09:39
    Does anybody know if the DLC is worth getting for this or if it adds cheevos or anything?

    Is it just the kill Hitler dlc or is more out yet? No achievements for that... and I felt it was rather overpriced at 800 points. Got it free for pre-ordering, along with the new rifles.

    If that's the one you're refering to, I'd wait for a sale.

    That said, I'm keen for new missions.
  • Deleted user 9 July 2012 20:02:21
    Yeah i was on about the hitler DLC. Thanks for the heads up ill wait till its half price.
  • Deleted user 7 November 2012 18:37:16
    From what I hear, the multiplayer mode is out today :). Can't wait to get in there with me mates. =)

    Grabbed the dlc. The paid weapons are a mix: pistol with the kick of a magnum, fab machine gun and utterly shite sniper rifle.

    They should be shouting about the multiplayer stuff. No one's on yet. Word needs to get around.

    Renting this at the minute and it seems the perfect game to rent. It's quite enjoyable but the AI being able to spot you after one shot is annoying.

    Slo-mo cams will never get old though.

    Hi trout
    Get renting Gears, you ratbag ;-)
    I really enjoyed the game, must be played on the hardest settings though, and I say that as someone who is shite at the harder difficulties.
  • Deleted user 11 April 2013 09:03:14
    Yeah, I always play games on their hardest setting for the challenge, I imagine it makes this one a lot more tense than a lower difficulty would.

    As for Gears, blame lovefilm! They just haven't picked it for me yet.

    Did the family sharing on steam with a friend and they have been on this all morning, remember getting it for free somewhere.

    Anyone got a spare key? I got a spare Chivalry on steam I can gift to someone if they like.
