Seems to be pretty much what we've seen demonstrated by the devs. I'll be waiting for the 360 demo to try it out for myself.

Is it just the player in this case or is the driving harder than it looks?

Man I love Jack Black but the humor in this game kinda falls flat, like the action. Oh well :-/

Your missing the whole thing about this game, it's a bit of everything, the action is much more fun with the RPG traits of the game, as you progress it can even evolve into an RTS stlye experience, then there is the driving which from what I've seen, I like, that to is upgradeable then there is animal jacking that alone is awesome, something I thought and hoped Zelda TP would have, and whilst your right about the humour falling short in the demo that's only the case sometimes like when he goes I think you have lisp, it's just not funny, but then when he goes decapitation!!!! or the bit were he say's, I can't believe you fell for that again (it's like a parody of every boss battle including there own) I chuckled and I feel the humour will be balanced a few bad jokes but the majority will shine and more importantly serve as character development.

This is definately a game that is the sum of all it's parts - funny, RTS, Driving, RPG, Open World/ Free Roaming, Shooter, Action, Adventure, Potentially a Platformer, maybe flying, Rythmn game, puzzle game and also a multiplayer game, there are but a few and I mean few games that can be tagged with as many adjectives and for that alone, if it can provide just the simple foundation of each genre, it will be an experience unlike any other this generation.

It's the Overlord-esque command-your-minions sections that have me worried. The standard Zelda-style gameplay looks great, but the RTS-lite aspects just don't appeal to me, and supposedly that makes up a large part of the game. I'd rather the action stayed personal as in the demo.

Oh well. I may still pick this up, but I'll have to wait for the reviews to find out how much time I'll be forced to spend giving directions to my army of headbangers.

IMO this is a very fun demo. Played it a few times now and can't wait for the game. I'm not the biggest Jack Black fan, but he's doing a good job in this game. A lot of lol moments in it for me. I'm also worried about the Overlord-style RTS stuff. I just hope it's not used to much.

I'm very surprised by this, I had dismissed it up until now but it actually looks like a lot of fun if a little repetitive. Shame it's coming out the same month as Uncharted 2 and Ratchet & Clank ACIT, I guess it give 360 owners something to play before Modern Warfare 2 drops.

    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (6 Hours ago)
