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.

Hi! Does anyone know relase date?

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?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Turns out everyone on that island had to survive lara from murdering them with an AK47. From fragile student, to trained military killing machine in next to no time. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What was this survival aspect they were meant to be pushing? I was under the impression from the devs that you had to, you know, do stuff to survive (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Sdarts: Hated the first one, couldn't be arsed with the second. Wasn't Tomb Raider, or at least what I remembered it to be most memorable for. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: already started. Already noticing dialogue changes. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog That oxenfree story is going to be sticking with me for a while. Damn... (3 Hours ago)
