If you've managed to get the game let us know what you think...

P.S. You probably thought I had it already. Nope. :D

There are quite a few people who've managed to get a hold of it today. Just check the txb and xbox forums. Anyway, I checked with all the gamestops, eb's, cc, and bb's around Midlothian VA and none of them will have it out today. Oh well, one more day.

I gave up. Can't find the **** anywhere. It's easier to find a 360 then this game.

FYI... I just picked up a copy of GRAW at Best Buy in NYC. The store location is 23rd st and 6th ave. As of 2:26PM EST they have about 20 copies left!! :)

This is a very very good game. First, the graphics are nicely done. I notice that some textures are low, however when you consider the amount of geometry on the screen I can easily understand why. It doesn't take away from the gameplay at all IMO. The lighting, in particular, is very well done. The way the HDR works is fantastic and the color changes do add to the emotion I think. IMO this is easily the strongest looking 360 game to date. Very solid visuals. The animations are fantastic.

I thought I would hate the crosscom but I am enjoying it and sometimes wish they gave you even more information.

I think the sound is also fantastic. Makes me want a better sound setup...I love the explosions!!!

Oh, one more thing about the graphics...I'm not sure what the "official" word is, but it never really looked as if COD2 had any AA applied. From where I'm sitting there is absolutely AA in this game. I know it's silly, but I really was pissed to notice a lack of AA in any 360 games. Refreshing.

Yes I agree that this definet. uses AA and looks great on a Dell monitor. The graphics are awesome and the gameplay is insane too. Although i have to start getting used to taking it a bit slower, i keep dying from running in the open heh.

Only one negative, my game started artifacting, majorly. I checked the 360 and it was running cooler than usual as well so I dunno, hopefully a random bug. The game just turned completely black and then u would see random objects in white, kinda like a photo negative. I think it was a HDR bug from what I can tell. Anyways I reloaded the checkpoint and it was fine again. Alright off to play more.

Just played the first few single player missions. This game is sweet!! Graphics, gameplay, sound... all top notch. 360 owners should run out and get this ASAP!! :)

You at the kingdom yet? Jaw dropping graphics. What TV you playing it on?

Kameo is awesome. The graphics in that game is jaw dropping. Have fun playing. BTW I'm going to add everyone's gamertag to my list. If you see StryderXx you'll know it's me. Cya all on LIVE!!

Edit: HAHAHA.... Evilchis and I both said "jaw dropping". I guess those words best describe Kameo!

check my achievements to see where I am :D

Yes the graphics are amazing. Sort of like the same style as WoW but MUCH MUCH more detail. It's beautiful really. And the waterfall... best water I've seen to date. But the most impressive thing is where you get on horseback and there are literally thousands of trolls on screen in real time. I was in shock. NO SLOWDOWN at all. The XBOX360 has some serious horsepower.

I haven't decided on a HDTV yet (still doing research) so atm I'm playing it on my LCD monitor. Yeah it dosen't really do it justice, but I refuse to disgrace Kameo with a standard definition TV. At least with the LCD I'll be runnig it at full resolution.

I can't get a projection TV like you suggested. I have to mount it on a wall which means my only options are plasma and LCD. I'm zeroing in on the Panasonic TH-50PHD8UK. It's 50in, 1366x768 (so it can do 720p native), and a half-life of 60,000 hours. From what I have read it also has the best blacks on any plasma in the industry. Here's a link to it's specs
