  • Thanks for the update. Are you playing this much? I’d be interested to hear your comments on our article from Charles Jeter, link above.:d

  • I have been playing this every day since I got it pretty much!

  • Luke T

    Is it possible to download the patch w/o xbox live? I have satelite internet… which means no live at all. :(( Could I just burn it to a disc or something?

    Cheers

  • As far as I am aware you require an Internet connection that can use Xbox Live. Have you got a friend who you can take the console to maybe who has a better connection?

  • Luke T

    ya, i could definitely do that… just seems like a bit of a pain in the ****. Thanks for your input (and the info on the patch!)

    Cheers

  • steveb

    how do these patches work are they automatically updates when you enter multiplayer or do you have to download them and also could some one please tell me how i invite one of my friends to a ranked match i have set up it doesnt seem to let me but it will in player match

  • In Ranked games you can not send invites to prevent people (or at least try to) cheesing the system (cheating).

    Patches will be installed when you are connected to Xbox Live on your Xbox 360 and you load up the game. This usually happens just as the introduction begins.

    Hope this helps.

    1) terrorist shotgun range is still way too far
    2) terrorists still spawn too close to you after you’ve just cleared an area.

    hey james,

    I know you cannot invite friends into ranked games, which is annoying, yet i play so often and notice people i ranked games who know each other very well, yet no matter how i try my mate and i just cant find the same game in the lobby….i dont want to cheat just play and the ranked games are better and more fun than the player matches, do you now a way of getting my mate and i on the same gme???? cheers

  • Depends on the game, but it is possible to search for the same lobby your friend is in as long as they tell you who the host is. Ranked games are meant though to be with people you don’t know and there is nothing wrong with player matches. I do hate the fact though that some games have achievements in ranked games.

  • Ludders

    Alright James,
    prob a dumb as question but where dya download this??

    thanks!

    hey i have a problem. for some reason this game wont work on my xbox 360. It says the disk is unreadable and i tried cleaning it but it still wont work. so next i tried clearing my cache but that didn’t work so im stuck =(

    This question is regardng the xbox 360 version and not eh pc version. I wanted to know how to host 16 player games. Whenever I try to create a match the max number of player that I am alowed to select is 14, regardless of what map or game type I select. I read on another website that you have to become a dedicated server and that doing so 16 people will join your game and that you being the 17th person would not play because you are the dedicated server. Does this apply to the 360 version of the game? If so how do I do this? Or is this something that is broken like on so many other UbiSoft games?
