I don't know... This games graphics weren't anything special last year when it was originally slated for release, Im worried that come may this game will look dated graphically compared to other RPG's out this year. Graphics aren't everything I know but after the graphical quality and visual style of the top RPG's out this year this game just seems to lack that visual punch it needs to stand out of the crowd and scream "PURCHASE ME IF YOU KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR YOU"!! but hey they have till may.. doubt it will look much better then but you never know. Don't get me wrong, I am very interested in the ideas this game has and I will certainly give it a fair whirl because hey what it may lack graphically it may make up for in other areas. We shall just have to wait and see... not like we haven't already been waiting long enough..

Great voice-acting.

While I love the idea of a modern spy version of Mass Effect, the bland textures and uninspired character designs really make it hard to get too excited.

I just hope Obsidian gets their act together stylistically when they roll out Fallout: New Vegas.

Not to mention utter shit in the animation department...

what a mess
Everything looks off. That woman with a machine gun standing in the snow with a summer top??? Graphics outdated for 2 years. Terrible animation. I can't believe this game will turn out to be better than average.

Even though this trailer make the game look a bit... mediocre, I still retain some hope that it will have redeeming features in the end. Obsidian have always lived in the shadow of Bioware, but I have respect for them as a developer that turns out solid RPGs.

Next month I'm going to take a big wad of cash and pick up Heavy Rain, Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2 and pre-order this

It's an RPG, akin to Mass Effect. It's not like it'll trailer well with in-game footage like this.

I hope it's good. It's Obsidian, it SHOULD be good. They've certainly been allowed to work on it for as long as they need, which should in theory prevent a KOTOR2 type situation.

In any case, it's awesome to hear Nolan North playing someone other than Nathan Drake in Game X disguise.

Yesh you people,I like graphics as much as the next person but come on, I'm looking forward to this one for the wealth of options in being as I want to be a spy. And for that it looks as if it'll be greatly delivering. And Great pic io LOL

I think if it would have been released last year when it was supposed to I would probably enjoy it. Now, after Mass Effect 2 I'm not so sure anymore.

I always wanted a spy-RPG so I'll get it just because of that, but if the gunplay doesn't work out I don't know. Mass Effect 2s combat was incredible fun.

Sure, to some extent I guess if they get the RPG part of the game right that'll do. But they seem to focus heavily on the action elements as well, so guess if that's broken it could really ruin the rest of the game.

  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (9 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (9 Hours ago)
