Images of Hellboy

With the movie release delayed to late 2008, Hellboy seems to try and sell it by itself all alone later this year. It looks much better than it did at last E3, but is it enough?

As Hellboy is one of my favorite comicbook characters I have to be looking forward to this. I must say I'm not wildly impressed, but the desert screen (#2) do seem to have some rather nice lighting going on. I agree it seems to have improved visually since last E3, but I'm more worried about the gameplay...

Character models look decent, but the environments are just plain ugly.

im pretty upset that they wouldnt try and mimick the style of the comic. A game with that visual style would be awesome.

The environments could use some lightmaps, but that's too much to ask when you're in a hurry to cash in.

The movie has been delayed so that will take a bit of their cash away.

Some of the places look good and the others do not. This is a mixed bag. They need to be consistant.

I'm with mkk316. It's tragic that they didn't go with the look of the comic. I think it might be a case, as in the cartoon that the comicbook's creator signed a contract preventing the game studio from being able to mimick his style. He's been paranoid lately that having too many people do things in his style might dilute it's uniqueness.

Is he really? I had always heard him say he's perfectly ok with other artist's interpretations of hellboy, to the point of lunacy almost. Im just tired of the idea that next-gen = realistic. You have an amazing art style with Mignola, you have a hellboy game, why not combine the two and make it way more interesting than simply recreating the movie. Oh well, one can always hope for the future i guess.........

    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yes, I love Fear Effect very much. But if they're going to make it differently, I would prefer a sequel rather than a remake. Though remakes are easier, faster and cheaper to develop. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: i would prefer the cel shading too, but i'm not going to write off the entire game just because it doesn't have it. it's a great series and the fact it's back is awesome. (17 minutes ago)

    Sdarts Fear Effect (PS1) - All Cutscenes: [url] For comparison. (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts This falls more in line with what Grift and others mentioned they hated in most mods - completely altering the artstyle. (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Plus, that walking animation looks janky as hell. If they were going to remake it, they should do Cel-Shading similar to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and CyberConnect2's Naruto games. (45 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: That Fear Effect "remake" actually looks like shit. The worse is the artsyle, the original and the sequel were never about realism, they had a very impactful artstyle that this has none of. (47 minutes ago)
