Sweet, that comes to around 6.99 pounds, I've been looking forward to this game. However, if it is has add-ons which are going to be sold seperatly (like what was done SA1), I might wait for a special offer or price drop ^_^;

It's weird but it looks as if both Sonic Adventure 1 and this have gotten actually worse visually

That would be some interesting mayhem, battling for customers.
Sounds fun!

It's nice that they at least gave the game widescreen support, but they should have redrawn the 2-d elements to match. It looks fugly

HO-LEE-SHIT. i dont remember this game looking so crappy. it has PSone level character models. the people have no freaking fingers for christ sake. they could have at least done SOMETHING to make it look better?

it might just be standard practise for all Xbox related trailers, but I noticed in the small print at the end of the trailer on the 2nd line a mention of Kinect, along with the usual xbox, xbox 360 and xbox live stuff....

They could at least have managed a little anti-aliasing considering how basic the graphics are...

I think the Dreamcast version looks way better than this even the PSP version looks better. It seems like all this Dc-remakes are being emulated instead of being maked almost from ground zero.

Yeah I agree with you Play
Sonic Adventure 1 is the most noticeable

    Moonwalker One thing is unclear to me though. How do I see my progression? Just now I was promoted and received 90 cards, not enough for a new weapon. How exactly does this work? (21 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker But I also really like how everything is done. Like the campaign and the story, the explanation before you start Operations. All very well made. (26 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker was plenty of that. Don't know what resolution it is running on on Xbox One but it's very crisp and looks damn good. Impressive DiCE (46 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker BF1 is fantastic. Loving the setting and the audio as always is superb. Graphically I am very impressed, clear improvement over the beta and not a jaggy to be seen. Whereas in 4 and Battlefront there (47 minutes ago)
