Anyone know what the deal is with this one?? - is it going to be good or is it going to go the same route as Rainbow 6: Lockdown....?

I REALLY want a decent tacticle shooter and with R6 looking poor I've turned my attention to this one.

thanks.

This will be good :) The PC version is being made completely seperate from the console version, alot of effort is being put to keep it to its roots.

Which console version? I ask because the Xbox and Xbox360 game are completely different games being made in different parts of the world. Are you saying there are 3?

Its the 360 version which is being done by a different team. RedStorm, the same guys behind RVS for the PC is doing the 360 version while the XBox and PC version will have the same traits from a separate team.

So the PC version is being made by the same team as the original XBOX version?? - but the 360 version is being made by the guys who did RVS - possibly the best tactical shooter ever.

Sounds to me as though its the PC that we should stay away from.

Thanks for the input.

The PC version is done by Grin ( www.grin.se ) and they only do the PC version. The PC version is the one you want, if you want a tactical shooter. They even made professional military FPS, and the owner of Grin was a swedish SpecOP, so I would say they do know whats important with a tatical shooter and will deliver one.

Here is the devchat from December:

Well I just watched the Dev video and looked over the PC screenies - and GRINS's website and I have to say my pre-order is now in.

I need a game like this and TBH It looks REALLY good to me.

What have grin done before?

When it comes to commerical PC games, its actually just their 3rd game. They did "Ballistics" and "Bandit Phoenix Rising" before (racing games).

Here is an intersting post with plenty of info as well:

@LiquidX: The only thing they share (Xbox and PC version) is the title and first person view with a weapon. The Xbox version is done by someone else. Tiwak I think.

Nice full size PC screenshot:
