Damn that looks pretty awesome, loving the physics they've managed to incorporate. The animation looks terrific as well (recoil on weapons, body movement, etc).

Hope I can still complete this game without getting hit (Finished MP1 and 2 on a New York minute difficulty without getting hit, required a lot of reloading ;-) as there's a couple of open area's without cover (will require a lot of jumping and dodging :-)

Someone tell me what they mean with aim like a FPS in a TPS? Doesnt make any sense to me.

Aiming is aiming, good aiming and bad aiming in controls, be it clunky or not.
If they mean the aiming in this game isnt shit like some TPS games out there then good lol

Cool looking game though :)

Loving the old ultra-violence. With a mouse there are going to be some seriously slick shoot outs. Cannot wait for this!

thnx!

Update: looked very good. I could feel the weight of the movement/body by just watching the video.

Good sign.

Yeah I don't really understand that statement about aiming either. Looks to aim the same as most TPS.

I like the body movements accompanying aiming. Rolling around on the ground was nice to see for instance.

The make or break factor with this game is whether it has a good story or how dark it gets.
If it's straight up action and not much else then I dunno.

Beautiful! Damn felt like i was back in 2001!

This game will sell well and I will be one of the millions that buy it.
Rockstar will do a good job on this for most people.
(Damn I hope I am not eating crow for saying that)

Holy hell that looked amazing! Glad to see some developers aren't set on destroying what made their games great in the first place (gameplay wise at least). As long as they keep the same style of storytelling, this will be THE game for me this year.

I love the way the bodies and environment react to each shot. Great environmental destruction, hit physics, cover system, body damage etc. I wish more developers would pay attention to physics in their games, rather than just making them pretty and shiny. I might actually play a game like COD if they had a physics engine that wasn't 15 years old to match their fancy graphics...

This is the kind of thing I was wishing would be in the majority of games this gen. It has a major impact on graphics and immersion, IMO...

I think what they mean is you can essentially turn, move and shot in space as you would in a FPS game. Most TPS games on console don't do this, instead most are cover based shooters and make heavy use of lock on targeting.

If that makes sense?

I am sorry but it doesnt make any sense to me, I still dont understand lol

I wanna write something smart but all I can think of is "BANG! BANG! BANG!"

I want this game

Yeah, I think it's pretty straight forward. It will play like Max Payne instead of Gears of War.. or do you guys think GoW controls like a first person shooter?
Commented on 2012-01-19 22:14:32
looking forward to this more than any game, sad it got delayed but it was probably for the best
Commented on 2012-01-19 22:23:30
Wow, Rockstar finally made a game with good controls. Kudos

Looks fantastic!
