There are so many words to describe this game: Beautiful, Inspiring, Awesome, Unique... I could go on and on. The side quests are excellent add-ons too along with the history and art along with it all!! This is the main reason I bought the XBOX!!!
I played it at Software Etc. a week ago today. I only played a little bit of it (30 seconds to a minute), because there was a Metroid Prime/Zelda: WW demo next to it, that I didn't notice until I was playing PDO (I'm a Metroid die-hard starting with Super Metroid years ago, and I still hadn't played Prime yet). I had just played PDZ (CD-R
) on my Saturn an hour earlier for the first time (first PD experience). I was surpised as to how much it was like the Saturn version. Controls were almost the EXACT same. I felt at home right away.
I just picked up the full game. I totally love it.
The demo doesn't really do it justice - you miss out on a whole other level of gameplay - absolutely addictive and facinating. I really love all that depp history stuff and it makes a few references to the other PD games through the "Encyclopedia" in Pandora's Box.
I really loved the game when it came out. the same day I got the DOAXBVB and Splinte Cell.... I can tell you, I haven't placed Splinter Cell into the XBox, and teh volley ball game has barely been in there too. It was all about PD for a while, until I finished both, the original and Orta.
I really enjoyed it a lot, it was a perfect example of keeping the series evolving in every sense and not destroying the basis. Highly recommended.
BTW, I did check it out in an HDTV set, and a Polk/infinity/Kenwood 5.1 setup.I tell you, it is worth it (visually it is not as enhanced as DOA3, but hey man, you won't be going back to S-Video or Composite, I tell ya.)
i'll been playing orta in full dolby digital 5.1 and with composite video ....men! its incridible the sound its awsome
por dios, este juego tiene las mejores y mas detalladas graficas que e visto....o bueno...de las mejores.
pero creanme...realmente es increible jugarlo con un home theater, un buen televisor y claro, teniendo el high definition av kit
if you can try play this game with the hight definition a/v kit in a home theater and of course a good tv set...really its worth
i dont know if the playstation2 someday will do such a detail on the graphics side like the x-box....but well....the really important thing here is the gameplay, the fun factor....and this game have it all ....a 10
