Two clans in ilcr have dropped out already of the primary league in order to make time for Ghost Recon. I played the demo...and while it is a cool single player game...I don't think it can replace Inf mulitplayer. Still...I am uneasy...the force is strong with this one.

I proably will get this game for christmas...but I will remain an Inf player until such a time the ilcr dies. Nevertheless Inf is gonna take quite a hit from Ghost Recon.

My main hope for the future of Inf as we know it is that someone makes an aimbot real fast and distributes it to everyone... destroying online Ghost Recon play.

Then they all come crawling back to Inf....MWAHAHAHAHA!

Man I hope Warren and Deppo gets that mission orientated game mode on real fast. Team deathmatch looks kinda shabby against GR...i gotta admit.


So you guys...I don't post here much cuz for some reason I never see any of y'all.... but if there is hope it lies in the proles...no seriously this is the biggest forum =).

Will you convert to Ghost Recon? or will you remain with Inf?

Can't stand any other FPS unless it has INF-like (damned near 100%) controls and such... care less about spiffy graphics, if it doesnt function like INF (eg using the gun with the Sights and not a crosshair etc...) I don't play it.. even though I have the Demo of GR, I have yet to play it rofl.. anyhow I think I'd stick with INF, cuz, I am just so attached.

INF is very in depth. And I am sure its been in development a lot longer that Ghost Recon...

Therefore INF has just about every feature I could want, it just needs some serious bug fixing.
I wish I knew how to do that.

The character-specific aim/conefire works well when dealing with managing several different units in a single-player game, but when you're playing as one and only one soldier I'll take iron-sights aiming any day.

Plus INF has better gunshot sounds iMO.

Where else in the world would I find myself surrounded by gorgeous weapons. Infiltration Forever!

Infiltration is in-development. GR is not. So when they get bored and start howling for mods... our next version will be coming out, and we will have a whole new inf to play with. For free :D
Eat that.

I don't like Ghost Recon much...it has the same frustrating half-slow, half-fast action of SWAT 3, the same annoying crosshairs, the same annoying timer-icons instead of reload/weapon change animations.

GR has a few good things, such as get up / get down keys to switch between stand/crouch/prone, but Infiltration is the uncontested champion of realism games.

Inf rules. GR sucks I got GR on friday and I had completed it by then, so in my view it was a waste of £30. And in my view it don'y get in my top 3 games list.
1)Deus Ex
2)Inf
3)OFP

I also think for a finished game GR is way to buggy, when compared to Inf. Then you have got the factors of no 1st person weapon models, stupid sounds, Ultimate in crap AI and so on.

Well thats good to hear. After testing GR some more I think that it is only better than Inf in single player. But that not saying much =).

The good thing is that everyone I know who plays Inf is diehard addicted. Hopefully ghost recon will only be a temporary distraction.

The crosshairs sook arse!

I have GR and I love it because, well, it's a Clancy game, but it will never replace INF and the ironsites... Been here since 2.75 and I aint goin' nowhere...

Go inf! i've been a loyal infiltration member since 2.75 also, i can't wait to see what's in store. eat that 'already been shipped and no further improvements and if there are they still won't be as good as inf' stoopid clancy game!

inf forever! :cool:

I like them both.

GR has a very strong single player element. IMO INF has a stronger Multiplayer element than GR. I dont see why anyone has to choose between one or the other. Play both if you like. Thats what I do.

My crosshairs suck arse was directed at ghost recon =)
for clarification

Ghost Recon looks gorgeous and has a strong single player element, yet i find Inf to be better overall -- i wonder if there will be a single player mode for Inf in the future? anyway, ill stick with Infiltration all the way

...:rolleyes:



yeah I know we(GHOST) dropped out...kinda sad but we liek GHOST recon...lots of them are leaving and not looking back but don't worry I ain't goin no where...been here since the unreal days(2.61) and leaving inf would be like forgetting my childhood. :D


see the problem is before ghost came to Infiltration(and before I came to GHOST) they were a HUGE rainbow six clan...they were actually the number one clan in the entire game. so when we found out that GR was coming out we all got a little antzy.

now as to why gat left...they just can't play anymore with us leaving :D

LOL
Sorry to see ya'll leave ghost. I hope ghost recon turns out to be an elaborate virus and you coem back.
GAT hasnt left btw.
I was referring to RU486

GAT is just slowly disintegrating or something. 7 active members according to archangel. They still make matches but they dont practice much. Ghost recon i'm guessing.

But don't worry the ilcr will survive. MAD and C7C will step up to replace thsoe who leave. As long as Inf is fun for me, I'll be here too.

O.D.

Or maybe they just didn't make room for new blood...

Apoc is pretty lazy I think. I hear he will recruit if 2.87 is good. I have no idea why I post this.

I prolly shouldn't talk too much smack, cuz I've never played it, but ghost recon, from what I hear and read, isn't all that good. Especially to be dropping outta INF to make more time for it. From what I hear, the bots suck about as bad as INF bots. And being single player, that is unacceptible. Then you can't see your gun. That is one of INF's highlights to me, the great guns. I thought about buying it, but now I don't want to. It may be good with multiplayer, but being single player too, that's not that good. It sounds like you need other human players to enjoy it. I think I'd get wolfenstein and aliens first. Can't afford a lamer game.

I really liked the AI in the demo. I have been hearing great things about Operation Flashpoint recently, what are it's flaws?

OPF: Flaws? Well, it does have Ironsights...:D :p

But it is still, even after the 3rd Patch after it's initial release, running very unstable, even on non-exotic configurations and I allways have the feeling that Netplay is "not going anywhere with OPF".
Not to mention that now we have a nice mix between todays and yesterdays weapons.

Personally I have had only one problem with Flashpoint, that was when it decided to crash out to the main menu at the end of a mission, BUT that has been fixed. The graphics seem to run O.K on both of my machines. The sound has a slight bug if you enable EAX on some SB Live cards you hear soldiers footsteps from miles away as if they are only a few metres away. One cool if not entirly acurate thing is a few of the new units have been implemented into the campaign, so far I have noticed the HMMVEE and the AH-64. The netcode does unfortunalty suck. After extensive testing on my and my mates networks it can get very laggy certanly on big mission that would run fine in single play mode. One thing though that might improve network performance is the release of dedicated server updates and patchs, as I have not yet tryed a dedicated server. My verdict is buy it and enjoy all the missions, including all the free single/multiplayer ones avalible for download, If ya wait a month I should have a load done :D.

/me sez: Thou shall have no other FPS next to INF

And me sez : INF for multiplayer, OFP for single and that unique feel that you are a poor average grunt thrown in a war without being prepared to it, and only trying to save his life... 'Nuff said. Period. Finish. Over. Out.

Taken of the back of the GR box

Drop into the most realistic gameplay ever - water soaks through uniforms, tanks shake the ground and tracers scream overhead with gripping realism

Lol How the hell do you notice that your uniform is soaking wet in GR when you can't even see your arms or gun? Is it me or is that the biggest piece of BS I have heard in years or what?

Feel the ear-spliting eruptions of authentic combat sound effects

HAHAHA I don't even have one of the rumble headphone thingys you can get so how the hell can I feel the sound effects?

Engage the deadliest AI enemies yet - angry, merciless and meticulously designed to take you out and your team.

ROFLMAO The AI is unbelivebly ****e, you shoot some bad guys an all they do is run behind some trees, and your team AI, huh they never shoot back its if they are against voilence or somin

All in all it the biggest piece of Tosh I have ever seen and read.

ya ya so GR looks sweet and is sweet but fukk it INF owns, recon is sweet for single player mission type play but i'll keep it all in the family. Nothin like playin INF online nothing compares.:sniper:

Thing with Inf is that it's this evolving, improving thing, made with care and attention to detail the likes of Red Storm will never manage. I think I'll always choose mods over "finished" games.

So far as GR goes, I am still too sick of Rogue Spear to be bothered.

OFP is a terrific game. I hear it is very buggy (although I have had no problems on my very non-exotic system) on some systems.

The graphics and realism are very orientated towards playing as an infantryman. If you want a deep tank sim, get Steel Beasts or something. Same goes for a flight sim. Same goes for CQB. Racing Humvees about the place is kinda fun, though.
Hrmmmm. You should probably still get a different rally game, though.

You might not like the graphics. Personally, I love them. I think they really work (dig the eastern european looking GI's. They could be Welsh...)

The weapons might not be to your taste. Everything is "used" looking and scopes are a rarity. The slinky supressed SMG is a MP5SD3 that looks like it's been used for... well, something you shouldn't use supressed SMG's for, anyway. The 1337 sn1p0r rifle is a bog-standard M-21 / SVD (with working PSO-1, no less).

If you want to play a good rally game, Codemasters released Colin Macrae 2. Probably the most realistic rally racing sim available.

I'd probably be playing GR if it ran on my machine..

To be honest i haven't even had UT on my machine for the last 6 months. But this is probably one of the best forums i've found so i still like to pop in.

As for what i like.. i'm big into realism.. ( and i don't have a internet connection for on my gaming rig) simulation fan, and despite inf's strides in that direction, i've found other games to keep me busy. at least till the next Unreal engine comes around or till INF's bots actually are fun to play with. One of the things that originally attracted me to INF was it's attention to realism.. but unfortunatly that realism only skin deep. The tactics.. the core of the game (esp online) is so far from anything remotely realistic that it literally caused me to be disgusted with online play to the point where i don't play online period. When i want to play a "realism" game, it's tactics, the procedures that i want real, not the graphics.

for the time being i'm enjoying
Civ 3.
Flight sim
sub command

--

between them there isn't enough time in a day to play them :P

On the plus side, with RB6 / RS (and i assume GR) it's a piece of cake to make an average mod... so you dont like the sounds.. they're .wav files.. aint that hard to replace them..

and it's a really good platform to learn the basics of understanding the complexities of good game design because rather than focusing on graphics, and other superficial features you quickly cut to the bone of solid game design, balance ect. You quickly go through the early phase of "i'll make EVERY gun." and realize.. hmm most of these are exactly the same, i could've made the same game with 1/10th the selection of weapons, and spent the rest of the time focusing on other areas.

so for someone like myself that likes to "get under the hood" of a game very easily it's a major attraction. above all that's been my pet peives with INF.

Dont get me wrong INF is a fun game, it's just that i'm trying other things out at this time.
