looks stupid... like some DMC or NG wannabe.

So...the graphics are kind of sucky, they changed Sol into Ky but with brown hair and it will play like dynasty warriors? God i'm disappointed.

I was kind of hoping this would be like DMC or NG only with the awesome characters from GG...but i guess not. I might still try it out but i have very low expectations right now.

this game must be better than those wargames in FP-view.....

Could the HUD be any bigger? It must be hell on SD TV's...

Kinda tired of these arcady games... At least make the HUD A) more attractive and B) less in the way...

And I thought this was a shooter for some reason at the name (not familiar with the GG series...)

looks like another PS2 port. There was alot of buzz for this game, so I will atleast try out the demo.

The graphics look reasonably decent, it's just the over-powering HUD - TOO MUCH INFORMATION!

I, too, tried the jap(?) demo.
I love GG and DotA, and while I sucked at the demo I think it's because I don't understand moonspeak and didn't know what the hell I'm supposed to do.

This game has potential, I think. For DotA lovers, and who are not into those semi-realistic'ish KOEI series.

only main player model may look like a PS2 or Wii game but those consoles never handle this many units at the same time on screen. this game is not a simple action but basically RTS with fighter character as a master unit. totally new genre. not close to DMC nor NG at all. far more RTS than Dynasty Warriors but with simple map. rules and systems are bit too complicated and tempo is also too hectic so you guys might wanna hold final comment until english demo finally arrives if possible and know what's what exactly.

The graphics are fine seriouly. To everyone that say its look 1999 or PS2: wtf are you smoking. It would be lagging like grazy if this was on PS2.

About the game

    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (31 minutes ago)

    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (33 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (35 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (48 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What's this about Half Life not having decent characters? Seriously? It practically set the bar as far as that went. Alyx, Barney, Eli, G-Man to name a few. (52 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (3 Hours ago)
