oh god, does this mean you'll be declaring it the "BEST ACTION ADVENTURE GAME IN EXSITENCE" for the next year or so?

No simply it looks nice and it plays good,it may be not that technically up to par to the AAA games that are out there that is obvious but the art design is awesome and it looks decent, and as far as I played there was no tearing or anything bad to it.

As I said gameplay is very good to IMO with good gameplay mechanics not confusing and the Majin AI is very good too, you can feel the bond the characters are making just by the demo alone and thats awesome.

Add to that this will be a 20-25 hour adventure with varied enviroments, lots of puzzles, it has good combat with a twist in that you "need" the Majin to win and you have a very good and refreshing game.

I will buy it day one!!

IMO Average in most aspects, and as far as the demo there was nothing particularly exciting, interesting or unique about its gameplay.

Are you people playing it wrong or something?

This has the same vibe as a Zelda game or those old school adventure kinda games of the NES era.

Maybe Im the really weird around here because I tought it was great., maybe my taste in games sucks :(

I don't care the game is awesome!!

oh, here he goes, if you dont like it your "playing it wrong". typical raptor, this is precisely why ronsauce was having an argument with you before. i thought you might have learnt your lesson by now? but you still dont seem to get it,i guess the saying is true, you really can't teach an old dog new tricks.

This is particularly amusing given that you're the one saying it.

I for one fully enjoyed the demo, visuals aint that bad dont know why people are crying over it
I swear everyone just expects each new game to come out to look 100% more outstanding than the last, this is the reason why we dont have many genres or as much choice this generation due to people expecting WAY over the fucking odds, and when it looks average (which is still pretty)
you flame the fucking thing into next week

As a community i think we need to grow up and look past this shit and play games because there fun, not because they use direct 27 shading utils.

What are you even talking about man??

Im just saying that maybe some were playing it like a straight up action game when its not, the character its not a warrior, this is more about stealth kills and when you absolutly need to engage in combat you "NEED" the Majin to kill enemys and that mechanic works surprisingly well IMO.

I was hesitant to even download the demo but once I played I was hooked instantly.

The game looks good and the gameplay whilst in the demo seem to derivative and restrictive it is easy to see the potential, I sense it reviewing extremely well though I'm pretty sure people will comlain if it doesn't have co-op. It does what I wish most developers without a big budget would do and that is less emphasis on textures and all that other resource hungary stuff and just make a good looking High res PS2 game.

I could name quite a few PS2 games that with High res would even be ranked as some of the best looking visuals this gen. GOW 2 HD remake proved that and so will SoTC.

I actually haven't no, but I will and I know for a fact I will enjoy this more than pretty much any "AAA" piece of crap that is out at the moment.

God forbid a game to be different than your average shooter or have slightly less polish than you are used to.

thats almost as annoying as randomly claiming people are "playing it wrong", as reason for them not liking it.

Both you and IRAIPT0IR have hinted that just because it differs from the popular loved, and milked, FPS genre that we haven't given it a chance... which ironic given You've yet to play the demo, and He'll dismiss a game like Heavy Rain without trying it.

Fact is, i personally dont like it cause it's rubbish (going by the demo). Not only are the visuals lacking but the gameplay is too. Frankly i found it boring, clumbsy, and the giant thing sounded retarded.

Play it and voice your opinion. As frankly you wont know you'll enjoy it more than any "AAA piece of crap thats out at the moment" untill you do.

i agree. but i dont think this game is it. i'm not hating on it because it looks like something that came out of a dogs rear end. i'm hating on it becasue it isnt very good...in every sense of the word. the lame visuals just hammer that last nail in the coffin for me. but the gameplay (plus the retarded, barney the dinasaur voice acting) is what killed it in the first place.

Heavy Rain? lol There is nothing to try in "That"

While this game might be not for you is indeed a fresh air in a ocean filled with FPS and generic games and for people like you and KORN and others that want the best of the best graphics even if the game sucks and its as generic as can be (see some of the AAA games out there) we will get less and less of this gems as time pass.

gameplay boring? lol are you serious?

It has a lot of interactivity, it has stealth gameplay, combination with the Majin and you to make powerfull strikes, the Majin at your command makes things like burning enemy, there is puzzles, and its only a demo mind you who knows what other stuff itsin store for us.

RPG elements in it, level ups for you and the Majin, you can talk to animals lol really cute stuff.

Sure as I said it might be not the best technically speaking in terms of graphics but who cares about that? not me thats for sure, art design its more important and its great in this game.

again with your assumption. you assume we dont like this becasue we only like FPS's? how about we dont like it becasue we dont like it? why does the problem have to lie with us? but wait, it can't possibly be the games fault that we dont like it's contrived stealth gameplay, or it's shallow clunkly combat or it's retarded voice acting, no, it has to be our fault eh? *rolls eyes*

Its an example "FPS" its what its "in" this days it seems and more if it has the best of the best graphics(see KZ games)

Those things you said that are a problems with the game they are not in my opinion, I dont find the gameplay boring nor clunky, the stealth gameplay is well implemented(dont get seen) what contrived? you want some gadgets in there to make it more stealthy?

The voice acting gets the job done, the voice of the Majin specially, it is meant to make you see that he is inocent and almost like a child, you are suposed to feel sorry for him, thats why you rescue him, the main character felt sorry for him seeing he is likea lost puppy or something of that nature.

I realize you guys must play only a few games a year, maybe 2-3 tops, your standards are way too high, and its funny and ironic because a game comes out that have amazing graphics but does nothing original and gets heavily praised by some of you (GoW3).

...youre doing 2 very wrong things... One is arguing over opinions and the other is assuming... Look if you like the game great, good for you go spend some cash on it, but stop telling people that dont feel the same way about it that they are wrong. and second, stop assuming people dont like it for what its not. we dont like it for what it IS. simple as that.

I do know, because I know what I like and I know what I don't like.

I have had a chance to play it and I think the game is quite fun actually, it looks as jaggy as hell though which is a shame, because visually its not too bad, but the jaggies do ruin the visual experience quite a bit.

It's kind of like jak and daxter meets tomb raiders.

This reminds me of the SE game Nier which everyone turned their nose up at and that turned out to be a really cool game aswell.

Get your heads out of your asses guys there is more to gaming than "awesome" visuals, guns and violence.

Who are you and why are you telling me what to do?

GTFO!

Im not telling you what to do, im telling you what you are doing wrong and why people are being vocal against you.

Its a mutual respect of opinion thing. If I dont agree with you the point is to agree to disagree, not try to convince you to agree to something you just dont feel. for example, my first post I voiced my opinion and it was simply that. I didnt quote anyone elses comment and tell them why I thought they were right or wrong, I simply said what I had to say about my experience from playing the demo.

and for my second reply that was directed at you, I didnt say your opinion was invalid or anything, I was just pointing out that you should not try to disagree so much with what the other people are saying.. and I guess that goes for them as well. but you in particular keep stating reasons why you think they arent agreeing with you, saying that its because the game isnt a shooter and whatnot.. and thats very pretentious of you, especially since you were trying to defend yourself before playing the demo.

just relax, state your opinion and dont worry about what other people think.

and I will now take my own advice ;-)
