Hopefully Rockstar can show EA how to port a game over with GTA IV.
It's not EA's fault, the game was under development way before EA took over Pademic Stuido's.

The game is fun, your just anal about every little gripe.

To be fair, I thought the last Mercs game was totally average as well so I don't see why there were such high expectations for this game.

A real test will come tomorrow with the release of the FIFA 09 demo. Coming from a serious doubter we'll see how it does.

It is an average game, and why is that bad? Why must every game release need to be AAA? Why can't we have an average game that is just fun to play? That is why the DS is so successful, there are not many AAA titles for it but there are thousands of average games that are just fun to play.

When did we start expecting every game to break the bank and be top tier quality? Back in the day we got a AAA title for a platform like once or twice a year...

Yes but we also know that you have a very messed up views on games.

Yeah, thats what I mean... I totally agree. The last game wasn't anything special so why did they expect this to be AAA as you say. This'll be one of those titles that there are many who think its enjoyable and probably just as many who think its complete crap.

EDIT: I'd probably fall in to the latter half as I usually get bored of games like this pretty quickly.

Nope, it's called being more open to games and enjoying a broader range of gamestyles.

EA put their logo on it, the game installs under program files\EA games. It doesn't matter if they are only the publisher or not it means they approved it and distributed it. If they felt the game wasn't good enough yet they wouldn't have given the approval to publish it.

Just noticed it. I'm waiting for console versions either X360 or PS3.

I have no idea if the PC version is actually the same base as the console versions (presumably 360 version) but I heard a month or two back that it is meant to be exactly the same this time (except better if its true).
