Looking great, loved the demo, day 1.

Really like those old analogue cockpits with all the antiquated dials in the old Migs, good to see 4th generation fighters getting some love.

Loved this franchise last gen, now I played the demo and this feels quite old tbh. Feels like an arcade cabinet and I don't want that from this game. The music does not fit the game too imo.

Where is this AC2 feeling with the memorable music and missions ;)

Couldn't agree more. I am happy that the hardcore fans still love the game, but I think my tastes have just evolved since the days when I loved playing AC on my PS2. Unfortunately for me, the gameplay hasn't changed since then, other than becoming more mainstream.

Your tastes have DEvolved...just kidding.

In all honesty though, I don't see how the gameplay could drastically change, it's a flight shooting game, it's kind of akin to complaining about FPS games not changing. The core mechanics were rock solid already, but they have undergone a major change in this new iteration comparing to literally all the preceding games. Still, the expert control scheme was a must for me, if they had jettisoned that, I would not be interested.

Because of the new simplified dog fight mechanic, those are exactly the ones who aren't content with this game (the exception proves the rule ;). Or better said "won't be", if the full game forces the player to use that mode the same way, the demo does. And it certainly looks that way at the moment.
On the gameplay in generel, besides not liking the game myself at the moment because of said dog fighting, I share munkini's opinion.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
