looks nice to me, but seems really repetitive...

There's some subtle product placement there ;)

Clunky animation, boring repetitive gameplay, and it looks too easy. Every game needs to have something DYNAMIC in it these days, and this game has nothing.

I finished it last weekend, it was fun.

From what I played it was good, but the fighting was kind of like a turn-taking game which turned me off because it would have been great to flight with fluid motion against tough opponents. I want it, but will probably just put in a trade request for it and wait.

I thought the same thing too, then I played it. It's not that it's not fun because there are some really cool moments but you honestly find yourself going, "If they only did this or that different" while you are playing. In many ways it's a third-person hand to hand to combat game so the game play mechanics should have been stellar.

Because Bourne doesn't miss by much you might still actually like it, but the point is it still missed being brilliant by just a few things. Things like a bit more complexity in Jason's animation, smarter AI and the need to mix things up for the boss battles. I found I was taking most bosses down with just a bit of timing.

It's still fun dc, but it could have been better.

There's nothing subtle about it all. lol

I guess we better get used to both ad and product placement in games because it's here to stay.

Never knew Jason Bourne was an ardent user of Mastercard. Bond uses what, Amex? :)

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog MGSV to me feels like just cause. You have mechanics that you are free to llay with in a world, but the objectives all feel samey and hollow because of it (46 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog You either give the player those crafted moment at the expense of the freedom people exoect in an open world (gtaV) or you make everything samey and keep the freedom. (48 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think its just because its hard to create meaningful, well designed moments in an open world. (50 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Yeah exactly. Never once in MGS1 and 3 was there a truly dull moment. Hell, MGS2 had awesome stuff as well. Are we just spoiled, or is this open world thing not for MGS? I'll a lot more 2mor (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: yeah, they can, but they're locked bhind in game currency. Items, and department lvl. Sitting on a cliff marking dudes then sneaking in is getting a but dull. (55 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Damn, that sucks. Just now i watched some of the earlier released videos and they showed some of the special items and weapons. Those can definitely make it more fun. (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I'm still ages away from getting a non lethal sniper rifle (57 minutes ago)
