Looks awesome to me. Too much complaining about the color palette from people, IMO.

A colour "pallete" would imply there is more then one colour....I personally just dont like it's multiple shades of brown.

Still looks pretty cool, but I remember when this was going to be a fully-fledged game headed by Jade Raymond... shame to see it go from that to an arcade title with what looks like a considerably lesser budget.

What is she doing these days? She was working on AC and the swhosh, gone.

This will probably stand out a lot more than The Last of Us, because they can experiment more if it's a lower budget.

I want this to be good. If anyone knows of a similar 3D survival game, direct me.

The only thing even remotely similar that i can think of is disaster report. And it's sequels. But even those are quite different in their approach. Sadly the 4th was cancelled due to the tsunami that hit japan.

As a game I think it seems really decent and should be judged on its own merits rather than comparing it to "proper" releases, will buy it next week :)

I´ll try this one out. Must admit I made fun of the "colors" too.

assasins creed was not a experiment as much as it was a turd, and splinter cell? that was the old ubisoft
the new ubisoft gives us conviction, advance warfighter that.. rainbow 6 27 thingy shovelware galore

Ubisoft are not what they once was, last gen they was fucking genius.. now though, there dog shit.

Yes, making a period piece historical assassination sci-fi game is not experimental. Been done millions of times.

I don't like Assassin's Creed, first game was a "turd" in design, but doesn't discount it being a new idea for a game.

i suppose i gotta step aside and let the assassins creed one through ;)

But still compared to what they was there just rubbish now, i think there biggest moment has been rayman origin

Lol.....i really had to laugh so much by that sentence

"...and why they've gone digital."

and even more by the PR Garbage the are talking in that Video !

Why digital ?
Cause after nearly 8 years of dev,changing Creative Directors ,teams,Designers and Gameplay a couple of times all around...they have enough !

IAA is just like a black hole for Ubisoft,and the do not want to waste anymore money on it as the Quality of the title just sucks !

But I must admit,those videos and advertisement make the game seem even good and interesting.
Maybe Ubi pules it even off and they manage to make some money back !

I am just happy its finally over and released !

Agreed, I'd rather it jsut be black and white or something.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (2 Hours ago)
