The game looks good but the cast is dreadful…

Running animation is a bit strange, I'd prefer ingame cutscenes instead of prerendered stuff cause the ingame scenes look pretty weak compared to the CGI sequences. But other than that I'm pretty amazed.

Best looking hair in-game ever. Looks fantastic. Other developers have some to learn here about small but important details. Love the character models overall, very well done. Environments looks polished too.

I just wish they would notice some of the big details, Lol! Like animation transitons and making the movement and camera more natural :P...

You are joking right? It's a huge step backwards in hair animation. Not to mention it's really bad looking. But i think the poor animation makes total sense as japanese kids use loads of hair lotion these days, man why not use glue instead? It's cheaper and their are ruining their hair anyway...

wow the in game animation and collision detections looks awful. Looks like they concentrated on making sure it was running at 30 FPS with 4XAA. Other than that, it looks like Final Fantasy X, I enjoyed FFX back in 2003 or 2002 but I dunno about this

You are blind sir, the hair look amazing. And must you guys make comments about japan in every japanese games topic? You Americans are so close-minded and always think your culture is flawless.

The hair looks fine but really who gives a crap anyway, why focus on such a small detail?
The way this is being played makes the running/turning animation look much worse than it is. The person playing is exclusively using the left stick to turn, if you use the right stick to turn the camera as well the turning is smooth. Those who have the demo can try it out for themselves.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz SpiderMan 2 is a very good example of a horrendous game with one magnificent mechanic, I wonder what the swinging versus actual mission time is for most people. (4 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Ninja Gaiden was so barebones lol no NG+, no extra anything and somehow I clocked up 475+ hours (7 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If I had to have one I would go gameplay every time. But these are all opinions at the end of the day, I've bought stinkers because of hours of co-op fun. (9 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @KORNdog: I can understand that being a turn off but I forgive it as I am obsessed with turn-based games. (9 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: if you are lucky enough to be able to skip them yes ;) (10 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's one of the reasons i generally avoid JRPG's with the strap/buckle and chain obsessed fashion. game characters shouldn't make me want to punch them in the face...lol (10 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog ...well...not so forgivable. i guess there is always the option to skip cut-scenes though. (13 minutes ago)
