@atlas: I was trying to be succinct in my post, but frankly you did a better job at that. I agree with all of what you said of the two games. Perhaps part of my problem is I had such high expectations of the game, given its GOTY status here at Giant Bomb. What was it up against in that year? Was ME2 really better than Red Dead, for instance? I'm going to have to re-listen to that GOTY Bombcast. :)
I played through it on the PC, which was beautiful. A truly incredible game, front to back. But that's not the point. I'm considering buying it on 360 just to play it on the upstairs TV which has far better SOUND than my PC. Is it crazy to buy a $60 game twice? I could also play some sections for my wife that way, which I'd like to do.
I'd say try it on hard for a couple levels, just to see if it's different. I played it through on hard the first time, and had a great time. I just started a game on normal last night and the combat became downright trivial.
