this game looks so much more impressive then the first one....not much of a challenge, granted, but still.

They really need to include some interesting interiours in this one, but I feel this way about pretty much every sandbox game (including GTA IV).

Looks like some ridiculous fun for a couple of hours, but I get the feeling it'll get old as soon as the thrill of messing around wears off. Good rental is my guess...

I really dig the seemingly openess of this game. This is the direction Crysis should have taken... Instead they made it more linear and... well more generic.

Game looks quite stunnin visually, especially in terms of draw distance and the density and lushness of the world.

Also looks like some good ol insanity. SO pretty fun.

That's what I thought until they used it to climb around those buildings by para-sailing by the force of the hook. That's the problem with a lot of games with "vertical gameplay" (e.g. Infamous): that there hasn't been a really good solution to quick and simple flight. But this mechanism seems promising.

But does anyone else think that a dude on a parachute floating above his enemies is kinda pussy and a little bit slow paced? I mean, where's the "run-and-gun" when you're gliding? We can only hope that this game is as awesome as its promise of being an "Uncharted open world" or a sort of successor to Far Cry at its best.

It's obvious this game is gonna sell for the exact same reasons the first one did, everyone jumps on the graphics. Shame the gameplay in the first game was sub-par and the replay value was in the negative numbers. Beware!

About the game

    MrWhite Then again, its a difference of months rather than years between those and PSX (0 minute ago)

    AndreasZ94 I don't remember very well but i think my biggest problem with Crash gameplay was the depth perception was weird (2 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I wouldn't go as far as saying it was one of the earliest ones. When I think early 3d, I think 3D0, 32X and Jaguar. (2 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: That's the crux of it. Tomb Raider is a good example of that. Then again, it lent a bit to its charm at the same time with how difficult and tense it made traversing things. (4 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Wasn't Crash one of the first 3d games? (5 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I agree, Im just tired of the whole story vs gameplay argument like both can't coexist. I just want variety in games (5 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I think some of them may have just had bad controls. (6 minutes ago)
