First 10 Minutes: The Club

First 10 Minutes: The Club

We are great admirers of Bizarre Creations, after playing and enjoying the Project Gotham Racing series through the years. It sure was a great surprise when Sega announced The Club, and now (or a couple of weeks ago), the world can finally try out their new project. I will post some impressions soon, but until then: enjoy some of the first rounds of a level in these videos.

Downloaded the demo months ago, add a few flaws but it was very addictive. Very classic styled gameplay. Good game.

The game does get a little repetitive offline but the online can be fun.

Played it with a friend, and didn't like it.

Love this game. It cuts out all the BS and gives you a solid run and gun shooter. The action doesn't let up one bit especially in the later challenges.

Would of been nice if you could take guests online but the split spliscreen 4 player is very fun so ,more than makes up for it

What a pointless game. Linear and based on score, which is based on statistics.
I'd rather play a game that is based on "pick-your-equipment-and-play-as-u-want" and the gameplay rather than scores like in darts or pinball, lol.

Where is the joy? "Yeah! i got 2x bigger combo which = more points per kill which = more overall score which = nothing meaningful at all except a number."

What a pointless post. Because that basically sums up the essence of competitive gaming. Especially action games and puzzle games.

This is a game you either love or hate. I loved the demo, but I'm not going to buy it.

@Baleur: I'd say beating someone up in GTA, or jumping on rooftops in Crackdown is just as pointless as getting a highscore in this game.

You're talking about Xbox 360 Achievements right ?
Yeah ! What else !? :-))

Anyways, the origins of gaming is only a question of number !
Pong, Tetris, Arcade games... Only the highest rank matters...

I like The Club but I have to say that the camera position is sometimes disturbing...
But what a great old school experience !

Not really into this kindof arcade gameplay (I can see though how others might love this), but for a first effort by BC of making something else then a racinggame I must say it looks pretty good.. The game shows quality and feels polished..

(and aiming with a controller is still a b*tch huh, especially love how you missed the 2nd guy in the round 3 video ;))

Hey now... I tried for a headshot and he kept going away from my aim. ;)

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (8 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (8 Hours ago)
