On the Xbox it's pretty awesome. Graphics are excellent, and the gameplay is a lot of fun. Most cursing I've heard in a game yet too.

I'd also like to know what it runs like. Looks like a watered down Doom 3 engine, but still impressive. Should run fine, but seeing as it's vivendi...

I want to grab this game and checkit out. I noticed it's up on gamestop.com but it's backordered for the PC version. Looks like I'll have to do some calling around and see if anyone else has it. I like the price. Not as cheap as Serious Sam for instance but it's no bank breaker either.
