    So, the Demo's out on the 5th (12th for Silver members), the game comes out on the third of March.
    What do y'all think of it? Will you be buying it?
    Discuss it here!:D


    I think it looks like an awesome prequel to Halo, I will definitely be picking it up (unless the demo blows, which I doubt it will).

    I heard it comes with a map pack for Halo 3 lol. I'll try the demo but most likely will never buy it.

    Will give the demo a go of course.
    I'm not really expecting to be amazed, I reckon they'll be playing it kinda safe with this game, not to upset any Halo fans. Just a hunch, of course.

    i think its gonna be a great game if your a fan of the genre and halo, but i am neither, i'll give it a shot though if i like the demo i may give it a rent. the map pack comes with the collectors edition and they will eventually hit xbl marketplace anyways so i'll get them like that.. if i even do get them.

    Since it's a basic RTS and the majority of buyers will be Halo fans... I kind of want to buy it just to completely rape all the thick skulls that don't even know what RTS stands for and Halo is the best game ever.

    thats kind of funny, because its true. "zomg deres a n3w halo gam3?! wow im gonna pwn lik3 halo3!"

    my buddy is a pretty big halo fan, and hes sick at RTSs i wont even play with him lol. he wanted me to get endwar with him and i used the excuse that i didnt like the private beta, i just knew id never win lol.

    edit: okay so i got the demo today and i really like it so far. ive only gone through the tutorials but after work (if i dont play killzone 2 all night) im going to try out the campaign and multiplayer features of the demo. looks promising though.

    Taking forever for me too. Probably because of the large amount of people downloading it.

    Started at about the same time as you and I'm 87% done.

    mine downloaded unusually fast. i was suprised since its such a large file. killzone 2 demo is 1.2gbs and that one went fast for me too, ps3 usually takes longer.

    the multiplayer isnt an option in the demo, its clickable so i thought it would be but when i went back after work to finish playing it it just brought up a screen telling me i can play 1v1 2v2 or 3v3.

    also the campaign is co-op over live, just found that out too. i havent been reading about this game or anythign, thought i wouldnt like it im gonna have to read up before it comes out but i think im getting it.

    Very good demo, I loved both of the sample campaign levels. Very good use of controls on the 360 controller, Ensemble Studios nailed it IMO. Can't wait until release.

    yeah good controls but theres one thing thats bothering me...

    theres no simple way to select multiple units out of a large group of units. say you have 20 units in a group and you want to seperate 5 and move them to the enemys flank or somthing, you have to select each individually. they should have made it so you hold a button such as R and press A on the units to form a group, then move the selected units to where u want.

    right now im moving each individually, then moving the camera so only that small group shows, then pressing RB wich of course is select all nearby units. its a pain in the ass.

    if im missing somthing in the controls let me know! ive tried different button combonations and i cant come up with anything. also did both tutorials.

    I didn't really like it. Didn't really expect to like it though since I'm not a fan of RTS games.
