    With Emergence Day fast approaching, most of you who wanted this game will have had the opportunity to do so (except for our European friends who have to wait until next week, sorry chaps!). I picked up my copy about two hours ago and jumped right in. My first impression was one of shock and awe. The graphics and the gameplay appear to live up to the hype. I can only hope the campaign and the multiplayer keep me interested long after the honeymoon is over. Thoughts?

    It's the first console-based FPS that's ever caught my interest.

    It's not a FPS. Thank God.

    It plays like a FPS but the camera view is over the shoulder. The zooming and targeting of the weapons is effortless.

    I was looking forward to picking this up today. I reserved the Collector's Edition. There was a shipping problem here in Tucson, so I have to wait until tomorrow. That blows ASS!

    10 days is nothing really, especially compared to the wait we've had to go thru for some other things. Reviews have been generally positive, but apparently the single player mode is a little on the short side.

    Will still be picking it up though.

    I went to Target to get it and the guy wouldnt sell it to me. Said it was street dated for Thursday the 9th when it was actually availability dated (something Target used to train people on but I guess they changed that). I used the credit I had at EB for TH8 just minutes before so I have to wait till it gets shipped to me now.

    Game looks great and I cant wait to pick it up which I will be doing once I can find it used. Its nice to finally see a next gen game for the next gen consoles. Will definately make the 360 worthwhile having now.

    The commercials for it make me want to buy a 360. Just wish I had the money to do so. Anyone know who sings the song in the commercial?

    I finally tracked down a CE today. I've played through all of act 1 and most of act 2 all in co op. Multiplayer seemed fun as well. Snipers suck but are easily outflanked and people do actually work as a team and revive (something i'm completley not used to - I blame BF2 for that).

    Started playing it last night, and I somewhat suck at it. After being used to the FF12 control scheme, it took me a bit to adapt to the way Gears does it. Although reloading is a different thing.

    Amazing looking and playing game, we'll definately have to get a big game going sometime.
