The game has a great use of enviremont shadows & light, and some nice little touches like the dog's fur

Hopefully this one gotta be as good as the first one, it may sounds weird but I had more fun playing DtR then MaxPayne ( in the terms of gameplay mechanism thats it ). On the other hand DtR 2 was uber garbage. Cant wait for some gameplay clips to see how things gonna be on this one.

This is a nice surprise, I quite enjoyed the previous games but I never thought they'd bring the series back.

Bringing depth of field to new extremes!

Yes images is misspelled, but granted this being a French site, the spelling on this site and forums, is generally better, in spelling and grammar, than most US/UK sites.

I think we should applaud Blim and co. for making such a wonderful site, for all of us English speaking folk, who visit it.

Was this game kind of a sleeper hit on the original Xbox?

I suspect Namco saw Chris Redfield and figured that's what they wanted for their remake. A huge mistake as you've obviously spotted the connection. And as the release is slated for Q4 2009, I can see it falling off the radar as far better established franchises are released at the same time.

From the screens it looks pretty generic - nothing you haven't seen in the past 3 years as it looks like F.E.A.R 1! From what I've read in the press release, I can't imagine the slight change in combat mechanics will make that much of a difference to its success.

I guess this is what happened to that BS Frame City Killer....

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] so cool (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog hellblade and ryse both had way more basic combat that literally just centered around weak and strong attacks. there was nothing else there to play around with. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and then you have the boy, who distracts, staggers and sets you up for more volleys. now compare that to hellblade or ryse...and you honestly can't see the difference? (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog then you've got the elements associated with the axe itself, where you can freeze enemies (and i assume other elements will be introduced later too) and do powered up elemental attacks (28 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there seem to be a decent depth to the combat in god of war. with staggers, shield barges, slow mo air juggles, grabs, axe throws, and standard hacking. (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: if you think that looks like ryse then i really don't know what to tell you. doesnt look anything like ryse or hellblade to me outside of a camera angle. (31 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @alimokrane: agree, if the enemy variety is there as well it could be an awesome combat system, especially for an over the shoulder camera game. Camera does zoom out for larger fights btw (1 Hour ago)
