    gears of war was alright, it was definately cinematic but the texture streaming and other such eye candy left the game way too short. I like to pay for games that have a long lifespan, and gears of war doesnt have that in my opinion. They did a good job using the unreal engine though but the cost of that nice look was less game.

    sons of liberty was a good game, the bosses I would say went a little to far, but the game is fairly long and keeps you guessing with characters and crap.

    If I my post helped you click on the GREEN MUSHROOM .....wait nevermind choose for yourself

    Don't get me wrong I love Halo/Quake/Counter-strike. Just I've been craving an actual action based tactical shooter for so long. Playing through on "insane" co-op is amazing. Its so hard that you really do depend on each other to use tactical/suppressing fire. Fun as hell.

    (Someone else could prob explain this better, but... )
    The Active reload is thus;
    You press RB to reload.
    A grey bar with a white box in the middle appears in the top right of your screen.
    A line starts making its way across this bar - and if you press the RB button whilst the line is in the white box, you reload faster (and your wepon is slightly more powerful).

    When you get the timing down you don't need to look to reload quicker...

    You can opt to not active reload and just wait the extra few secs for the character to do it automatically - but it really helps in a firefight to reload quick.
    Also if you mess it up the magazine jams and it takes a few seconds more than usual even to get reloaded.

    As for the length of Gears I'd say it was pretty damn good for myself. I don't like really long shooters (Just too busy to play them all the way through in any sort of reasonable time.) There is a massive difference between casual/hardcore and insane though. Insane takes a seriously long time to get through. Also the online multiplayer extends the life somewhat.

    Metal Gear Solid series... my favourite game series (excluding Donkey Kong Country both my faves) I'm sad enough to consider getting a PS3 when they're going off cheap, just for this game.

    Its still a short game. I put 150+ hours in Super Mario Bros. 3 but that doesnt make it a long game. Xenosaga, thats a long game.
