can't wait till i get this. never has a demo sold a game to me in such a massive way. loved every second of it, played it through tons. i just hope there is plenty of meat on the single player bone. the first game was a really good lenght, i hope this one is too.

demo was great but I think the game will get old fast, there doesn't seem to be any gameplay diversity, just sniping, sniping and more sniping. Gonna pick it up on steam once it drops to $20 or $25

This game wasn't even on my radar, acually I never heard of it until I came to this site (where I actually read about it), played the demo... I will get this game, very sold on it.
And I swear I aim for the guys head and I hit him in the nuts. I am not trying to hit guys in the nuts. That damn bullet drop.

The demo is sooo fun. I always give it a quick play-through every time I turn on my 'Box. Getting that perfect shot is so addicting (I find myself restarting the mission when I don't get a great shot on the distant snipers. There is nothing better than shooting a dude through the eye on Purpose! One time I had a round blast off all of the guys fingers before severing his spine. Superb, and it makes me want to get the best shots...

I know what you mean. I can't believe the diversity of the kill cam shots you can land. I have seen tons of headshots, eye shots, lung, heart, kidney, arm, legs, spine, throat, nuts, just about everything. I just recently got my second two kill shot. I love seeing the slug deform as it passes through the first enemy, and tumble in slow mo and nail the second one. Wonder if it's possible to hit more than two?

Anyway, I think this is a perfect example of what a demo should be. I have heard a lot of people like myself who hadn't even heard of it, but are now sold. Both this and Birds of Steel sold me on the first playthrough. The only thing I would change is the amount of hits you can take. For a sniping game, my character should die in 1-2 hits, but even on elite I seem to take waaaay too much damage. Makes the game pretty easy. Still lovin it though!

I must be the only one who wasn't that impressed with the demo. The game feels underdeveloped and cheap, even archaic. Kill cams are a nice novel appeal, but what happens once that wears off?
Commented on 2012-04-22 23:54:29
I am not impressed either, at all.
Only thing good was the x-ray kills and bulletcam thats it.

I was also not impressed , but i was amused.
Also agree that without the x-ray and bullet-cam it would be a rather mediocre experience.

kinda like most games with those sort of gimmicks. max payne and F.E.A.R without the bullet time etc...thing is, those gimmicks ARE there, so they're awesome...imo at least.

But in this case, it adds to the satisfaction, and doesn't make the game easier or harder. It kinda celebrates your awesome shot, and I think it's brilliant. That's the kinda things I play games for.
It also helps that the controls are tight. Having more to it like setting traps is awesome too. I just wish the AI's detection of you were more sophisticated. Like how the see from faaar away even though you are away from the window opening and in the shadows. I did like when sometimes I'd snipe a guy, and his buddies didn't know where it came from. I just wish it was more consistent.

    Sdarts Spec Ops: The Line does something similar, and I wish more games put you on that spot. Try to make you think: "WTF do I do?" and etc. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Decisions like that. If the game's story is really good, you actually feel the weight of them and how there's no "win" choice, just worse and even worse choices. Some books and movies try to convey it (5 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: Just hypothetical and nothing to do with the game: Do you blow a school full of children where a terrorist is hiding? Or let him go free to potentially kill thousands more innocents? (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: I can't mention the scene in question without spoiling, but one option was almost impossible and the other was "easy" to do, but the "easy" one was something "monstrous". So values. (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: I don't know. The shooting felt off. It had mouse acceleration, which I hate. Cover wasn't fluid. But I loved the story. I also couldn't stand the voice of Drake in that setting. (5 Hours ago)
  • digi_matrix
    digi_matrix I love when story and gameplay match, and most of it is told in-game than just cutscenes. Remedy's games are also great at that. (5 Hours ago)
