Played A:CM for the first time this morning, got it for £25, I did want to wait until it went lower but really wanted to give it a go myself so I gave in. (It being the first time I've ever really taken in account of reviews before buying a product).
I'm actually enjoying it...yes! ok the graphics are no where near the quality of recent releases such as Halo 4 and is almost certainly not the same game we were shown a few months back which did have much better lighting and visuals, but it has not really bothered me too much to the point where its unbearable to play. I've started on Hardened difficulty after reading how easy the game apparently was, I did find it challenging to be honest... its either because i was tired this morning, im just crap at playing games or the game is actually more challenging now with the new patch updates its been having.
I'm still on the Sulaco so not gone far yet into the game, I've given the multiplayer a quick go and it seems fun enough...but then I have only given it a quick go and no idea when the novelty will where off yet...but yeah its ok.
I can't really rate the game yet, but it seems to be ok and I think ill prob end up agreeing with what OXM had to say about the game... its not as bad as people are making out, but then its no where near as good as Gearbox were letting on it was going be...so that's where the real disappointment is really.
