E3: Dark Sector gameplay

E3: Dark Sector gameplay

Hop ! Here's a gameplay video of Dark Sector, D3's next action game. If the game is pretty and looks like it can have a good ambiance, our hero spinning weapon isn't really convincing. Let's wait for some more.

i like that it can ricochet(sp) off the walls and stuff and kill enemies on the way back, you can also use the glaive to pick up weapons on the ground, which is a nice touch. Hope we get a demo soon.

I like the look of this. I wonder if the gameplay varies that much though, or is it just hack and slice?

It's looking graphically pretty fantastic but is so obviously ripping off so much stuff from RE4. Then again, if you are going to rip off any game, why not one of the best of the past 10 years?

Were you guys able to talk to anybody from D3 and find out a release date or window at least? It seems to keep slipping back and back but I'm hoping we'll still see it in 2007.

I like how he can control the elements with his weapon.

That goes with both Xbox 360 and PS3.

Blim you know what the lead platform for this is?
Commented on 2007-07-14 07:36:30
The biggest fanboy is here now :P

Well for one, demo was announced long time ago for a pre-release before launch.
The glaive can do much more than what is shown, ice glaive power is one of them, attaching a bomb on the glaive and then throw it to enemies and BOOM!

Psy - The lead platform is the PS3, but they showed the 360 version on E3.

So finally I can see it, sure i wasent there for LIVE, but at least they uploaded it!
Thx Blim a bunch!

Hehe not a good place to ask this question, but one tip. You should PM Blim about it, he will most definitely answer that :)

looks intriguing enough

lgraphics look good, the animation looks good, the enemies response is excellent

the thing i'm scpetical is the gameplay mechnism, switching between the gun that projectile. has to be well balanced

Well you are the one that makes that choice. You are the player, you are the one that have to decide when to use what.

still though that choice is based on how the gamplay is designed....in some of the vids you have enemies in front you and you are forced to use a long range projectile instead of a gun or melee
Commented on 2007-07-14 22:03:58
Wellmulis, why use a long range when the enemy is right there. Either aim fast shoot them or just melee them. If they are behind cover, then if you are good with the glaive switch , aim, lock, throw.

But everybody plays different right, and unless we don't play it ourselfs it is not natural to us just to say this and that.

We need to get the game and play it and then see how it is. Obviously this player can not play good :P

Remember when this was the first next gen game we ever saw? God, seems so odd to be hearing about it again after all this time, after all the systems have been out for a while. I guess we should really pay attention if they are spending this much time on it.

And... what? That's irrelevant to me wanting to watch it on my PS3.

So hopefully these videos from E3 will get high-def .mp4 versions in the future.
Thanks Gamersyde!

from that footage it looked a lot like the controlls and movement speed of the character doesnt really suit those fast paced moments...so far we've seen very small amounts of enemies. maybe 5 at a time, all scattered around an area where the glaive really comes into play, this footage however, there are a LOT of fast moving enemies spawning from all sides (similar to the villigers from resi 4 i might add) and his turning speed and overall movement doesnt seem fast enough to cope in those situations, and hence he took far more dmage then maybe he should have not based on his skill, but the sluggish controls.

im still looking forward to it, it still looks awesome, there are just a few issues i dont like....such as the sluggish movement.
