    Hi.

    Considering Xbox purchase. I liked what I saw of Halo2 when I played with my cousin. I like what i see of FSW's movies/trailers that I've seen online.

    Anyone play FSW here? Who likes/dislikes? Why?

    Thanks.

    It has great graphics... but it has no replay value and the play itself is rather bothersome. You cannot control individuals. Only squads. You cannot point and shoot for yourself....

    I was rather disappointed. There are some great games for XBox but FSW is not one of them...

    It was intended to be a squad-command trainer for the Army. Not a run-and-gun game with you behind the trigger.

    I am aware of what it was "designed" to be. But I thought that since they changed it somehwat to fit in as a console game, I thought they would make it funner (is that a word?) to play.

    It just isn't that fun to play is all. I am sure it does a good job teaching what it was intended to teach.

    Well, I guess I'm going to look for it used then--that is, if I actually buy an XBox.

    Full Spectrum Warrior is fun, but repetitive and has almost no replay value. Save your money. It's an overrated game.

    It's a WWII squad based FPS, you control two groups of around 5 or 6 guys, and can position them to flank or provide cover fire, etc...but you also control your own character and have the freedom of a first person shooter.

    I know it's coming out for xbox and PC but don't know if Xbox will come first or be simultaneuous.

    Here is a really great video of the game and gameplay

    I think Brothers in Arms will be a very excellent game. I'm looking foward to it.
