This really was a stupid game now that I look back on it.

I remember being utterly blown away by this trailer and thinking, "Man, I'd do anything to get this game!" since I wasn't allowed to get M rated games at the time. When I finally got my hands on it, I loved every second of it but was really disappointed by how short it was. But, looking back at this trailer, which sold me on the game, I can't believe I ever held an ounce of anticipation for it. I mean, the guy just randomly shoots at windows and they explode for no apparent reason! I dunno, do you guys think they should make a sequel to this?

Dude, this game was so fun.

GUN PORN!!! 
 
Anyways, the game was good, but it was also just a super long tech demo of saying "dood, look what we can do with graphics in this game"...and what's funny is that even by today's standards, IT STILL looks good. 
 
Nonetheless, I want a sequel solely because I want them to actually make a GAME this time around.

I really liked this game. The fact that I could choose to either open a door, or blow it off it's hinges with a shotgun sold this game to me.

It's on the Marketplace. Are they going to be taking the Xbox Originals down after they disable Live service for the first Xbox?

Yeah, but you use shotguns to open doors! 
 
The game had neat ideas, but guys standing by explosives made it too methodical.

I played it and I didn't like it a whole lot. Is that a bad thing?

well, i suppose not everyone loves gun porn. this game was a shit load of fun to me. so many explosions and bullets. ahh, just what i love.

This game had one of the first bullshit in game pre-order things. You got a SAW for just the first level for pre-ordering.

Well it's not the guns and explosions that are problem but I just felt that there wasn't enough of it. As a game iy also felt pretty generic to me. It's probably just me though.

I'd like a sequel.  They'd know some of the things they would need to fix and fix them making it better than the first.

well yes, it was generic but it was eye candy and while the story sucked, it was still a whole lot of fun to blow the shit out of everything. it was mindless fun. it would of been much better with some sort of multi player. 
 
one problem was it took 8383901830128903 bullets to kill someone, and stuff. game was also very difficult at times, but still had a good time with it.

I think I might define gun porn a bit differently from you guys. I mean, Metal Gear Solid 4, now THAT was good gun porn.

MGS4.. :( I own it but i haven't played it yet. I wanted to play through 1, 2 and 3 first. My copy of 2 is busted and it's apparently the best in the series, so i cannot continue without it :(

I loved Black although I've not played it in a while. When I was into it, though, I was really into it. It was at its best on Black Ops mode, which kicked my butt on many of the levels but I finally got through the whole game. Plus it was one of the few games on the Xbox that supported custom soundtracks.
 
Man, it had the worst story and FMV cutscenes, though. Pee-YEW.

@AjayRaz: MGS3 is tons better than MGS2 in my opinion. It's a prequel, so you might be fine just playing that one.

I did have MGS3 there, waiting for me. I'd think that MGS3 is better optimized for play for people who played MGS2. I'd rather get MGS2 over with and better understand what the ass is going on, you know what i mean?

A good approach, but just know that  MGS2 is quite convoluted, so you might not understand what happens anyway. :P

I think I would've liked the conceit of the story if I understood what they were saying. Subtitles would've helped tons.
