'Perceived' being the keyword...

It's unfortunate for someone in my position because the Live service around here is substandard (to say the least) and too lacking to warrant the asking price.

1. Live Gold is pretty cheap... Like $5 a month.. What's so tough about paying that? I guess there'd be no reason to whine then and I do know some people like to whine.. Plus, it's only a week.. It's not like it's a couple months or something outrageous.

2. I wish I would have known about the demo this morning.. I would have started downloading before leaving for work so it would be ready to go as soon as I got home.

OK enough of this Silver/Gold membership stuff... it's time to talk about the demo. I played it and all I have to say is "IT'S TO DAMN SHORT!". So far the game is pretty similar to GRAW 1 (which is a GOOD thing) but the graphics, sound and gameplay mechanics have been improved big time. Your character now moves swiftly and smoothly. The cover system is easier and quicker so no more sticking to walls when you don't want to. Animations are much faster and the drone controls and camera system function better. The textures used for the environment look amazingly crisp and sharp. Very impressive. That coupled with the increased gameplay speed make GRAW 2 a must have title for the 360. This game is due out for the 360 in March of 07.

One thing i hated about GRAW was how you're constantly shooting, and relying on, red blips. Is GRAW 2 like this?

Okay got GRAW 2 demo and graphics has improved a lot (it's not yellowish crap like those screenshots). Gameplay reminds the same however few things were changed. It's a bit confusing since I've been playing Rainbow Six: Vegas a lot lately. Hehehe. Great demo. Will buy GRAW 2 when it comes out.

HOLY CRAP!!

GRAW 2 is fetchin' amazing!

Sweet visuals better control for changing weapons.

GRAW has been my bread and butter (especially when I'm getting skooled @ GoW )

I don't preorder games often, but this will be an exception.

Best Demo I have ever played on Xbox Live. Period.

I love GRAW. Adding better graphics and better control...well that only makes a fantastic game even better.

Warning: Watch for the artillery.

I had one gripe with this game, for some reason when tapping the trigger to shoot in full auto, it would like stick and repeatedly fire until the clip ran out. WTF...

Thought it was a gamepad issue, but it's brand new and haven't had this issue with any other games at all. Tested about three other games to check and can't replicate the problem.

As if firing seems unresponsive or something.

I bubble tap it , then put the gamepad down and it stills fires..... wtf

I don't remember having this problem either but I'll check it out again tonight. Even if there is some problem with the auto fire I doubt something like that will make it into the finished product. GRAW 2 still has 2 months of development time left in UBISoft's schedule.
