It is little bit like GOW game with less QTE. Gameplay is not great and animation are lacking. Gfx and presentation is best thing about this game :p

I have said this MANY times but it never hurts to mention them again.

Fantastic artdesign, amazing orchestral music, great voice acting such as Patrick Stewart and Robert Carlyle, seems to be a dark and good story, very cool combat that has the DMC/Lament of Innocence feel to it.

My most anticipated game interms fo 3rd person action game that is coming soon.

I have to concur. After watching the gameplay video I think it looks absolutely stunning.

From a technical perspective it probably isn't better than GoW3, but all I care about is how it looks on the screen, and I think this looks mindblowing at times.

I totally love the environment design. Who needs a new next-gen when it's all about the art direction? Imagine Dragon Age looked like this, I'd be screaming in bliss.

Agreed,Tech aspect of games are the least of what I care and yes this looks way better that GoW3.

nice game..
Commented on 2010-08-19 21:27:41
I wonder how good it actually looks. Can never be sure about things like framerate, resolution, AA. or if those cutscenes are in real time from video like this. but it sure does look nice and wet! XD

That was impressive, very cinematic.

I agree, especially when comparing the God of War 3 Hercules battle to this demo stage. I'm also liking the dark and moody vibe I'm getting from Castlevania.

This will be awsome ....gameplay looks faster than GOW and no damm fixed
camera. Besides Vanquish the most interesting 3person action game this year
Commented on 2010-08-20 11:04:08
Castlevania seems to have the same camera...fixed, unfortunetly.

Vanquish is the most interesting 3rd person action shooter game.

But interms of action hack and slash, Castlevania, atleast for me.
Commented on 2010-08-20 12:35:14
lol. GOW3 is far superior to this in gfx, animation and gameplay too. It is epic and fun action game compared to the competition.

This also has fixed camera which is not a bad thing at all if done right. But gameplay is not looking great. Having said that it looks nice, music and story etc will probably make this game good.

The people saying this looks better on a technical level compared to GoW3 can't have played that game... Having said that, this really does look nice visually, and I can definitely understand if peeps prefer the visual style to GoW3, I think it matches up pretty well...but GoW 3 at is best looks incredible...I have seen nothing yet for this game that matches the poseidon or chronos battle... certainly nothing in this video comes close

Nobody said it is better Technically though,but it looks better as Art Design,atmosphere and all that than GoW.

About the game

    alimokrane On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (13 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (49 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (51 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (56 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (57 minutes ago)
