They instantly know exactly where I am despite the fact they cant see me, they cant hear me and they in fact shouldnt know I was ever in existence until the moment the grenade landed next to them, or even exploded.

I have to say that I'm beside myself looking at this, WOW! I do have my reservations though....
If the HDR is unlike anything you have ever seen on the PC, what generation of GPU will enable us to play this with the kind of pant soaking visuals you have described?
I have to say that I'm dissapointed regarding the realism though....
Have they not seen Mythbusters? This will afford no protection at all...okay the wall might against small arms fire.
Great review ;)

from what this guys been saying, GRAW doesnt really sound all that good
His comments on the game/graphics -
"Then we have the one big hope of the early adopters
Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. Pathetic to be honest. Sure it has a few more spanglies, some of the heat/haze effects are nice but the environments are still tight cramped affairs, but perhaps worst of all is the fact EVERYTHING IS MADE OF CARDBOARD!!!
Seriously, go shoot a window in GRAW
go on do it now and then come back
Great now tell me what happened. Did it smash? Did it shatter in a realistic way? Could you look through the window? What did it sound like when you shot it? Its freakin awful! First the windows are NOT transparent, they are not even windows. They are A.N.Other bit of environment painted to look like a window
not very next gen huh? Well OK then what about when you shot the window? You mean to tell me this next-gen FPS didnt have windows that shatter? In fact they didnt even get a bullethole in them? What?!!!??? it sounds like your bullet hit a lump of wet wood? Piss poor if you ask me!"

Originally Posted by glaekenhmmm, interesting. I used to get so pissed off when I would crawl past the one rock wall and there was no way that they could see me, and the alarm would go off. But then other times I could walk by them while a spot light was on me and nothing would happen. That's what made me think it was just points in the map.

(actual amounts may vary but I'm sure an X-Box 360 is cheaper than a brand new nVidia 7900)
