    Some may ask why I decide to specify (EU) in the title, well, it's because EA (in their Infinite Shite Wisdom tm) have decided that PAL discs can only play with PAL discs, I have no idea why, but it's stupid.

    Other then that, the game is great fun, but playing on my own is annoying. Does anyone else have this yet?

    Will be picking up tomorrow, trading in Mass Effect and Lost Via Domus for it. Play with you tomorrow if you want.

    I want to get it for the PS3, but no one I know has got one yet and I don't really want to play on my own.

    I saw the preview for ps3, and i loved how it had swearing, and some real emotions in it, so i went out and bought it for my ps3. Only played the training and first mission, but i'm much more of a keyboard and mouse over controller person. Besides the touchy aiming, i liked the game, but so far it's nothing spectacular, but i will definitly invest my time into it to beat it and unlock some of those bada** guns.

    I paid £35 for it from HMV, but I'm sure it's cheaper elsewhere

    EA Suck

    hi

    me and my mate have been trying to play this game on contractor together. both of use have the (EU) disc and i have an 8mb connection an he has a 10mb connection. but yet i cannot play co-op with because ea's servers keep lagging out!

    does anyone know of a way to avoid using ea's rubbish servers as we have no problems playing together on any other none ea published game.

    also note to all if u are thinking of buying this game it is very good but i suggest that you strongly reconsider unless you intend to only play by yourself.

    as if you either work nights or play play on your xbox after nine at night you will not be able to find or host any kind of multi player game.

    and as the previous person stated you cannot play with anyone, even if on your friends list who lives outside of the EU or does not own a pal based console.

    :wallbash:

    it has taken me and my friend over two and a half hours to play an online game, and even then it would appear that ea have dedicated all of their bandwidth to the US as it was so laggy u could not tell what anyone was doing.

    all in all ridiculously confusing, and dear.

    do not end up like me who brought the last copy in my town for £44.99 on a game you will probably spend a day or two to exhaust.

    i recommend buying this game if you can get a copy for around £20 or less, otherwise it is simply not worth it.

    After some more play today, I'm taking it back, the game is far too restrictive and this is unfair.

    Joe: Can you see if you can contact someone if there's a patch coming to fix the region lock? That's the only thing that may save me.

    Ok not buying now, was all set to get it and now it seems crap as well, great, when is Vegas coming. Something that might stop me constantly going abck to Halo, COD could not do it, it got returned, my only game I ever traded in it failed to me that much.

    Is it two player split screen offline?? Because thats the 2 player im interested in rather than online. Online is great but not essential as I like to play split screen at home.

    Well I was looking into it, but the stupidity with online play has put me off that. Gonna wait for Joe's review and see if there's any news on the poor online play.

    Cool graphics, love the weapons customisation, but the gameplay has been rinse and repeat for me. Glad I only played it at my friend's house. Doesn't warrant a purchase imo.

    Tried the online and worked flawless for myself. I'm in Canada which is probably why. The game itself is fun when you have a mate to play with, but i prefer larger scale online matches. Oh well.. only a waste of 1 hour of shovelling snow, and i got my super smash bro's brawl coming this week :D
