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. ;)

About the game

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (7 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (7 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (7 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (10 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (10 Hours ago)
