Frame City Killer: 15 images

Frame City Killer: 15 images

Namco released the following images from the japanese GTA-clone, Frame City Killer. There are some really huge improvements since the last time we saw it, but it's still hard to believe that this game uses Unreal Engine 3. But if they've made this huge improvements during the last weeks, who knows how it will look when it's released?

I know a lot of people rag on this game, but I reckon it could be a LOT of fun if the freeform Hitman style gameplay is pulled off! Some of the shots remind me of Shenmue actually.

Agreed

Well, really, the only thing that bothers me is that first gen, particularly launch titles are often hugely niche based. It seems to me that the new hot thing is "A BUNCH OF PEOPLE IN LARGE OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENTS!" and that's basically what we're shown most of the time in trailers right now. Even Kameo, for some unknown reason, has a bunch of trolls now.

I think this could still be a nice game of course, but I have a Breakdown vibe I can't quite shake. We'll see.

Sorry but the doesn't look anywhere near a GTA-clone.
Anyways, this game looks awesome to me, and it's only going to get better.

I swear I've had the worst luck with all the GTA games I've bought if they look better than this. I best get my TV (or my eyes) fixed!

I agree, this game is starting to look a lot better now.

Well, first of all, this looks better than GTA to anyone half-capable of.. I dunno.. LOOKING.

Second, the unreal engine doesn't magically make stuff look good, you've got people that have to make things pretty and these people obviously just.. don't.

I can't comment objectively on this game since I'm a die-hard Namco fan and like mostly all their games but it doesn't look too bad graphically. And yeah I really like the first screen too ;)

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
