Ive logged about 8 hours playing the game thus far. I expect it to be a 12-15 hour game. Kinda short, but awesome nonetheless.

The way I see it, it's 12-15 hours per character and countless hours for every variety of multi-player! That's definately worth $50 to me :D

The fedex man paid me a visit this morning too :D It came damn fast considering it was shipped yesterday and i paid for the 2 day shipping.


Anyways Ive been playing hunter all morning, imo it absolutely rocks. Only thing that could have improved this game so far is the addition of custom soundtrack ripping.

This is actually the name I go by online(xbc), so since I am getting cable I thought it would be easier for people to remember me by if my names here and xbc are the same! Besides my old name Bryanhls is not very fun! It is just my name and where I live....Plus I didn't want newbies knowing my first name incase the flaming had to start! Its just not as personal if they are calling me shaggy vs. my real name....know what I mean?! I definatly am not going to take my sig down, Just edit it when I have some time!

The soundtrack is pretty good, some type of mix of rock and techno, though it seems odd that the music isnt constant. It will come and go, like for instance you're walking through a graveyard and all you here is the creepy background sfx with the occasional zombie moan/shotgun blast, then walk up to a gate to open and the music kicks in as you're being swarmed by the zombie masses.

It does make for a good effect though :D

gotta get bum fights.

also, is the Night of the Living Dead DVD still available w/ Hunter, or was it a pre-order thing, and from where?

I believe that night of the living dead DVD offer was a preorder quirk.

it was only for the pre-order to my knowledge. The movie sent is the classic b&w version. Wished they gave us the color one, no biggie it was free!

its one of the few exceptions in terms of movies that are better in its original form.

Your right anthrax, it was only for a promotional tool to sell pre-orders of Hunter.
Hey, it worked on me! This was the first time I ever ordered from ebgames.
Much props to dem cats for doing my shipment overnight instead of the 2-days I ordered with.:cool:

It looks fairly different to me compared to the common DVD cases.

I did not want to put this in a whole new thread, cus this thread is about the same thing. Well just thought I would let you know. I got the only copy at gamestop today ,,,it was there b/c someone canceled there pre-order. WOW thank you God,,,is what I said all the way there.

I prefer the durable plastic to the breakable jewel type cases. But I cant complain :D

I actually just got done watching the movie and it was better than I expected it to be. Of course I did expect a really cheesy B flick. ;) Great addition to my DVD collection...

the case is pretty cool..always nice to have summin different....btw..just got back from lunch...and my GC,xtra cont..and memeroy card was waiting for me;)

only prob...the mem is only a 4mb and they told me it was gonna be an 8. I'm on hold right now seeing if they'll send me another one.

DZNUTZ
05-23-2002, 05:06 PM
well..heres what happened...i told the guy they sent me a 4mb instead of a 8mb as promised...he said that wierd ...we don't even carry those...i said well..i'm holding it in my hands as we speak...he said return it and they'll ship the appropiate one....i said..no way...reason i bought this was cuz of the 2 day free shipping deal and that i would recieve it before i went on vac (like i'm really gonna take it on a cruise with me...my girl would kill me!) anyways...to make a long story short...their shipping me the 8mb that was promised...and i get to keep the 4mb!!

when I saw the case for the night of the living dead I was like woah! that looks pretty cool, but now I think about it, my rot will probably break the case in about 3.7 days!

My rot pulls out **** I never new existed, or I forgot about....for instance, my girl walks into the room, playboys are torn to shreads and little pieces of paper that were once some beautiful boobies are all over the place. "Damn what happend? I said trying to deny that they are mine! Tears are starting to swell, I am thinking how and the hell am I going to replace that china issue....Its a collectors issue. "Bad dog! I saw how dare you bring porno into my house then shred it before I even get to see it" *smack* So this case is as good as history!

Are there any other difficulties besides normal? I mean is it like Diablo II style where after you beat it on normal, there is nightmare difficulty, and then hell difficulty? Or can you choose at the beginning or what?

The difficulty is automatically determined by how many players are playing. Once you beat it once you get to choose between regular difficulty and nightmare mode.

You, sir, are a nitwit. This game has tremendous replay value. 4 characters with 4 back-stories. Unlockable costumes, hidden areas, cheats, different endings, multiple gameplay modes, etc.

Most people beat Halo in about 16-18 hours their first time through. Is Halo not worth buying? :rolleyes:
