Default I shudder when I watch this.

This video is actual gameplay from Black for the (regular) Xbox.

I get two things from this video.

1.) This game is going to own.
2.) I cannot WAIT to see what next-gen consoles can do.

I was on the fence about pre-ordering this one, but that video just changed my mind. I'll try and get over to the local EB tomorrow and put my money down.

I played the demo on the Xbox and geez... I hated it. I was sort of looking forward to it since it looked quite good for a current gen game... but playing it was terrible. The aiming was aweful and the movement was so slow.

I disliked that the enemies were too accurate but the rest I enjoyed. One thing disappointing is that there is no MP at all... even Red Faction was able to tack on some sort of MP...

Guess theres no reason for you to go nextgen if you can't tell the difference. I find it more suprising that the game looks nearly identical on both the PS2 and Xbox.

Wow, it does look good. Amazing what you can do with hardware when it's a closed platform and you optimize the crap out of your stuff. Sadly, that's something you never, ever see on PC hardware. All that waste...

The game does look very nice. I wouldn't go as far as saying it looks good as a next-gen game, it definately has a few "current gen" flaws like blocky geometry and flat-looking walls (do the characters even have shadows?), but it does look very impressive for what they're running it on. The game really does seem polished, all the way from the explosions to the feel of the weapons. Some background textures look a bit bland, but the weapons are surprisingly detailed. Even when you zoom in with them and the tip of the barrel takes up the entire corner of the screen, the textures still aren't fuzzy.

I'm actually quite impressed with the audio as well. Weapons actually SOUND like weapons, instead of like pea-shooters as many FPS games' weapons do (*cough*Half-life 2*cough*), and the sound effects and distortion are very well-done. I always found it funny that FPS games spend millions and millions on the graphical aspect of the games, and then they sound like they hired a guy that does saturday morning cartoons to do the audio.

I don't, considering who the developer is. All the Burnout games I've played on both PS2 and Xbox have looked similar, which is to say very good.

Yeah, It looks fairly good, nice concentration on effects, debris and bullets, but tbh, FEAR did all that pretty well already.

Now....Condemned ...that was a fun/different take on the FPS.

This game will have some stiff competition. Counterstrike has been refined over ..what ...8 years and is still a very, very good game as a result. Halo2 has online console play dominated. Plus theres a billion FPS on PC that I haven't mentioned. FPS is a very DONE genre.

It really reminded me of Goldeneye. Still one of my favourite FPS games. Yes, it was cool when you shot a guys hat off in goldeneye, but from that video it looks like it happens to every other person you vaguely headshot.

Goldeneye copy with nice effects? Hmmm, is it coming to 360? I might be able to get interested.
