lol, so true. looks nice for an XBLA game. but also looks a lot worse then it did originally. but then i guess a long time has passed since it was announced. even the water doesnt look all that impressive anymore.

but man, that is some seriously stilted, and badly delivered dialogue. it's like tomb raider in the PSone days. i bet this thing will cost a ton too. i'd be willing to drop 800 points on it, but with limbo just around the corner. nothing else really matters as far as XBLA/PSN games go. it's all about limbo.

Because good original tomb raider/tps shooter esque games matters none, when one has artsy fartsy games with 5 hours playtrough costing 1200 MSP.

Good luck with that. (LOL)

dont need luck, these "artsy fartsy" games are typically superior to most things out there, but thanks anyway ;)

This is "artsy fartsy"? All I see is an action exploration game, with water being the gimmick.

Mattdamon was referring to Limbo, I think...

Wonder if these guys will pull an Alien Breed Evolution when it comes to the PC and PS3 after the 360 timed exclusivity period ends.

Yeah, it's hard to get excited about this. Especially since it's episodic content, it has written "fail" all over it.

Limbo blew me away with it's "artsy fartsy" style. Hopefully the puzzles are just as good.

Yeah man, but it's good they planned and retail release after last episode. Definitely will wait for him and now will get only LIMBO and Comic Jumper. :)

I still think this looks like a good arcade title when sold at an arcade price. The only thing that bothers me are the numerous little cutscenes. Ok, the voice acting is weird, but not a game breaker.

But Limbo is a sure deal ;o)

Have the feeling the water looked better at some earlier points they showed the game.
Seems they "watered" it down for XBL DLC,to make the package smaller !

Voice acting is a bit off ,but as droezelke said,not a game breaker for me !

Fable 3 just got announced as being episodic like 2 was and that went down a treat!. Plus there's nothing wrong with episodic games - You can get feedback from the community and grow and deveolop tech behind it for better gameplay and gaming. This is by far looking the most impressive title to come on XBLA this Summer!

Dont forget this is coming to the PS3 and PC aswell.[later]

Im waiting for reviews and even then ill wait for the planned disk version of the whole thing.

Hydrophobia Engine still looks good, I just think the gameplay is poorly designed.

I think it looks amazing for an XBLA game.

What a disaster of a game. If the VA was better it might do well, but not that crap. I was annoyed as soon as they started talking. If you dont have the accent and cant do it, dont try. A lot of TR underworld was ripped into that game and not done as well, but they get a C for trying.
