The initial batch of 360 titles were OK, but few of them seemed to really show a need for a new, powerful machine. Sure, Kameo having lots of enemies on screen was a nice effect, but it's not like them being there really helped the game. They were there to justify it being next-gen.
GRAW, though, was the first title to really make you appreciate next-gen gaming.
This was the best action title on the market for ANYBODY. No platform, including the PC, had a game better than this when it launched. It has been passed since then, but this title was a huge slap across the face of developers, challenging them to produce something of equal quality.
Visually, it is stellar. A beautiful game top-to-bottom. The visual effects are some of the best aspects of this game.
It is a phenomenal title. I was never a huge fan of the Ghost Recon titles before this. But this game is perfect. Absolutely perfect. It is so much fun.
The online portion of the game is the best of any title I've ever seen. No lag and the game is just MEANT for on-line play. You can play as a team or a race to see who can kill the most enemies.
As I wright this I have just beaten the game and really only one word can describe it, WOW. At first I was a little hesitant to play this game but after I tried it out at a friends I thought what the heck. At which point I asked to borrow it and I have been playing through the campaign since. The story on this game is incredible in my opinion and to quote my friend "This game seems like a movie, this is incredible". And I have to say he was right. The gameplay is solid although your teams AI can be a bit flighty but really that is the only bad. The enemy AI on the other hand is very good and provides a good challenge. I most liked the selection of weapons available to you however I usually went with what it recommended. Don't worry if you run out of ammo either just pick up an enemy 36K and you are just dandy. I played online once with this game not that the gameplay itself was bad it was actually pretty good but basically the name of the game was spawn kill so unless you were on the right team it got a little old. All in all great game I would recommend it to anybody so have fun.

I love this game. I really like the Online Mode. It is great to play if you just want to have fun. I think if you like Army Games but not so much the Army like Call of Duty then you should get this game.
