Funny thing is Spider I liked the realistic feel of the guns in it.
Would you believe I have only played 3 missions of Reach so far :).
I loved the multi though.
My favourite genre is shooters so I would be comparing like with like and for me compared to games like UC or Gears KZ2 was no way near them.
I hope no one thinks I am trying to give a sneaky swipe at the PS3 as I aint.
I am in to my second year on PS3 and am delighted I have both.
For me next year I will be looking forward to UC3, R3, Infamous 2 and maybe Socom.
I will most deffo rent KZ3 to check it out.
I reckon there is the possibility of big improvements been made such as happened with UC2.
I suppose most and foremost I was giving my opinion based on the op question.
As a shooter fan I just didn't rate it as anything special although I could see the potential beneath that for a really good franchise.
Anyway back on topic.
I would check out infamous as it is a very good game imo.
As someone who prefers shooters I got in to this game and was moving around the city like no ones business very quickly.
Also the side missions are good fun and not too long to be boring.
