Yeah I am stuck on that thing too. Damn cool game.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Yeah it is a fun game. though it is a bit short and very difficult even on the casual setting. But also the PvP in the game is quite fun as well.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started to do the same thing to them at funerals.

Yeah that boss is a bitch. Still haven't beaten it myself.

>> Are y'all playin on pc or 360? I got it for my pc, and have to say it fookin rocks. Solid game, which can be annoying when you got to baby-sit Dom, who has a habit of fucking things up. Apart from that, royal.

I played on the 360. It took me forever to beat the boss

I bought this game with my 360, and the boss was hard until you figure out what is mentioned above, snipe him. If you can get active reload everytime, you can get him before he even reaches you.

The online play/the game being better than Halo(3) is debatable by many aspects. I personally don't have a prefrence, I play both, but I play Halo more, just due to there being more players in a room, and general more fast-paced action instead of sitting for 15 minutes waiting for your team-mate who is being a pansy and hiding to actually die so you can play again. That said, GoW has a very nice cover system which I think is ultimate, as it opens the player up to many more options in terms of stratagey, and many of the walls in games such as halo aren't usable as cover.
