I now know what my problem with the game is, visually the characters look detached from te environments which is quite jarring, perhaps it's because they are more visually detailed ten the environment, but it still looks jarring. It does look good overall though.

To me the shot's just look boring, i don't know...they don't look bad i guess, there's just nothing about them that makes me excited about the game. Also, if i know anything about how this goes, they'll screw my mythology up bigtime ;)

:P Probally, im pretty sure the console department of Creative Assembly is run by children, its a shame because the total war games are excellent, these poor hack and slash console titles are killing their name.

Looks awesome, but there is weird underlighting on the main character - I wish they'd ditch that...!

I think it looks great, personally.

At the very lest, it's technically impressive.

I cannot wait for this one. I just hope the gameplay lives up to the visuals. I can't stand pretty but shitty games.

Definitely going to pick this one up, looks really epic.

From how it looks and from info i've heard about the game, this could be very special indeed.

PS, I mean special in the good sense... not that 'i'm a special boyyyy' stuff.

is this an RTS or Hack n Slash? as its by the Total War guys.
Commented on 2008-02-05 19:20:06
It's an action & adventure with slight strategic elements.

Graphically it looks a full generation above the Golden Axe 360/PS3 game.

About the game

What's up?
  • Sath
    Sath A few stuff that was great in BF4 is gone in BF1 which i hope gets fixed and brought back to BF1. Or for example non laggy menu or you straight to the spawn map after customizing your weapon. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Or for example when you are in the zone of the flag the actual flag letter wont show up on top middle of the screen you gotta look at the actual flag in the game. (1 Hour ago)

    Sath @aphex187: Well the strafing they added in later fter they understood it was a mistake. Unlike BF1 were the class menu ingame disseapers which is bullshit IMO. (1 Hour ago)
