Creatures design is outstanding!

Battle system like KoA:R but more clunky.
X360/PS3 graphic on PS4 that's "very good" news. -_-'

Too bad the combat looks like crap, there is no "umph" or "punch" behind the hits between the weapons and the enemies.
And the dodge looks hilariously bad, just a step back? they should have added a roll instead.

I wish those two were great since everything else looks very good to me, but if the impact of the combat lacks i wont bother with it.

Stupid high-fantasy mash-up!
What do you find about the creature design, Zat?! It's uninspired and does not stand out in the slightest in comparison with the bajillion gritty fantasy-adventure games out there.
As Sath has said, the combat does indeed feel weak and of course very unrealistic. The "stepping back" on the other hand I don't see as terrible because of how it's used in the particular clips - it's a proper alternative to the constant evasive rolling that you see in most games (and a much more efficient move in real life). I wonder why they don't let the player block with his weapons?

Very unsatisfying combat. Hitting enemies looks like hitting tofu.

It's like the character is skating on ice. It looks decent, but there's indeed no oomph in combat.
Quite the same reason I didn't like the Batman games (sorry, fans). Fighting sounded and felt like slapping a piece of chicken. Slap, flap, flop, oh stop it you.

    Megido It's fascinating how Nintendo always make like 3 copies of everything, especially when it's super in demand. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Why can't retailers keep doing pre-orders, anyway? (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They need to do a better job at meeting demand too. How are people supposed to keep interest in a thing they can't buy? (3 Hours ago)
