I agree that this game typefies next-gen
even if that sounds a bit cliché. I am not a "hardcore" gamer, but I do really enjoy playing video games mostly in the sports and adventure genre. Typically, I am not that big in to the first/third person shooter, but this game is awesome
I've mostly played one-on-one against a friend on an HDTV and the environments are completely enveloping. My brain is fooled into believing that I'm actually there. Even my heart rate increases, for crap's sakes! My only problem with this game is that it may be too realistic given the violent subject. Alas, that is a different discussion and you can't fault a game for being "too good".
