just got myself Gunmetal yesterday and this game is awesome, I had some of my Game Cube friends round last night and they didn't have nothing to say about it hahaha they were going on about how smooth it was and the graphics are great with effect that your flying through some clouds is really cool and I love the change from mech to plane, and when it's loading a new level the mission is told to you so it not one of the static screens with a picture this kicks Rouge Leader on it's side and thats a comment from the CG owners hahaha 1 up

tell me something. This plane to bot deal... I've been wondering this for a long time:

can you change from mech to plane and back as many times as you want? or is there a limit?

NO mate it's a one person game, it's a shame as in the making they said they would make it a split screen game like Halo
Oh well it's still a good game though

06-29-2002, 09:41 PM
nvm, it comes out in july 30th or 31st and there r 25 missions. this game cost 39.99 and it will be worth it since it dosent have multiplayer. im gonna pick this game up when it comes out!

Snoopy7548
06-29-2002, 09:42 PM
nice. im gonna buy it. it looks so awesome

CodeMonkey

Nice to see the UK getting a game before the US

:D

The transition from bot to plane is smooth and nice, as I seen this at my local game shop. I was intending to pick this game up, but from the footage of game play I saw, I was relatively disappointed. I will definitely rent it though as it may prove me wrong from my first impression of the game

:D

LOL CodeMonkey it's nothing like Gunvalkyrie (I spelt that right I think hehehe) the controls are like Halo in mech mode but plane is a bit funny though as the right thumbstick it the boost and brake

man, I got to get some sleep almost 4.00am as I want to watch the Germany vs Brazil match later on
I hope Brazil win (I got cash on it hehe):D

what is that game like?? is it hard to learn? can u fly wherever u want?

E-Vader
06-30-2002, 12:52 AM
I've just been checking out the website www.rage.co.uk and dowloaded some of the music tracks for the game and I have to say that the music is allmost identical to Dark Reign II, not that thats a bad thing or anything.

And irule23 according to OAXM the learning curve for it is realy steep but in a challenging way not a throw the controller way.

YES you can but the only problem with that you may fail your misson but it's great just flying around for the first time as the graphic are great you can kill the animals, burn down the forest, stamp on your enemys (blood everywhere) destroy buildings and walls ah and those cloud effects are really cool when you flying around

the steep learning curve isn't that bad as long as you've got to grips with the plane as the mech is easy to use (plays like master chef in Halo) you shouldn't have no problem

I think I heard somewhere that you could use your soundtracks in Gunmetal. Is this true because this seems like the perfect game for my Lords of Thunder songs.

Thing is, I have Hunter pre ordered, (but I could swap if need be) and I have been waiting for this game since forever. Now that there all this hype about Gunmetal, and AFRO with you saying it’s a great game, I’m not to sure which to get..
I mean Hunter comes out on the 5 of July, so just 5 days away. Decisions, Decisions

U looking forward to Hunter Afro?

Snoopy7548
06-30-2002, 12:41 PM
i already beat hunter. its fun while youre playing it, but after you beat it, theres nothing else to do. anyway, i wanna get gunmetal. are there like big buildings that you can destroy? i like destroying things in games. can u like destroy anything you want? how many levels are there?

I've got Hunter the Reckoning it's OK and I mean its just OK the graphics are OK and the game doesn't slowdown, but the only thing about it, its a bit boring on your own all you do is just go around shooting and chopping arms and heads off, with is fun for a while but then loses it's appeal, now don't get me wrong I mean I still have it as it's great in multiplayer (well sort of) in 4 play the only thing wrong with that it that the screen doesn't open wide enough for you to get out of sticky situations
It is funny in some areas where you can blow up a car and not tell your friends to get out of the way or trap them in a corner and get the boss or the zombies rape them, as you run in another direction, if I were you I'd think about renting this game first as it's a hit and miss game

But get hold of Gun Metal you'll love that if you like Incoming

dave_m123
06-30-2002, 01:29 PM
Hmm i remember playing incoming on the PC and while it had nice graphics it got boring fast. At the moment with multiple characters, multiplayer plus dismemberment of zombies and stuff it looks like hunter is the better game.

Im deffo gonna rent Gunmetal though as it did look rather cool even though the mech u control runs funny lol :D.

Gun Metal or Hunter, eeerrrrrrrrrrrrr. Its tough, they both look like great games but I want something that will last for a while. From what I've read it looks like gun metal is the smart choice. :cool:

CRAIG123
07-09-2002, 01:55 PM
id say you should get both of them games..maybe not both at the same time if you havent got the $$$$$ but after you bought one of em.. start saving for the other..coz gun metal looks good and hunter is cool..both are "must buys" in my opinion.:)
