Had a hell of a time with the demo, but it looks like they WAYYYY upped the likelihood of the crazy Xray shot happening in the full game which bums me out. Hopefully easily modded/console commanded to fix that, because I loved that part of the game. Made kills so damn satisfying and cringe worthy. Never thought I'd watch a man's testicle explode, let alone from that point of view :3

So I heard this game doesn't have MP and only includes Co-op? If so, big fail

You can set the amount of killcams in the settings.

Anyhow: I have the PC-version. I've played for 2 hours now. Can't really judge the game yet, as I'm experimenting with difficulty settings and replayed the second mission a few times (the first is a tutorial).

But I can tell you 1 sure thing: the game looks nothing like in the screenshots. The screenshots have been multisampled and vamped up with filters. The aliasing in this game is awful, even on ultra settings and AA (some sort of MLAA or FXAA, but definitely not MSAA) on high. Also a lot of details are invisible from a certain distance (LOD decreases with distance I mean).

But the lighting is superb. Reminds me of Crysis 2.

I'm pretty sure the PC version has MP.

I really liked the demo of this.

My friend said it doesn't, just co-op

I'm loveing the tits off this game atm. Playing it at the propper difficulty and it's intense as hell, but even more satisfying when you judge a 300m shot perfectly. It has it's issues, but this is easily in this years best games for me. Love it.

This game is pure headshot porn, unfortunately it isn't much else, the level/mission design feels like a 10 it's taken from a ten year old game, a bland shooter hidden behind a fancy killcam system, very much a bargain bin game.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (14 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (15 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (17 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (18 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane etc.... (23 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: The issue with what you suggest is they are FPS games and or MP, not my cup of tea. I am talking about SP games: adventure/action/horror. Where are the hard Ninja Gaidens, Dragon Quests (24 minutes ago)
