Our first contact with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes was on Playstation 4, and although Kojima's Fox Engine didn't look as impressive as we could expect, it was still a lot better than what we got to see yesterday when we finally played the Xbox 360 version of the game. Low framerate, pop-up issues, aliasing, poorer textures, the difference is quite clear from the get-go. That being said, this old gen version still has its moments, with nice lighting and weather effects (rain drops also look nice in slow motion) and well-rendered cutscenes. Problem is, as soon as you start goofing around because you have the whole Gamersyde team in the living room - and they never make it easy on you when you try to play seriously - things get a bit messy and it doesn't really show Ground Zeroes in its best light. We'll let you find the incriminated video on your own. Many thanks to Xbox for sending us this copy of the game.
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (6 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (6 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (6 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (9 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (9 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (9 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (9 Hours ago)
