Rain trailer

Rain trailer

Take Splinter Cell, add some Metal Gear, a pinch of Buffy and mix it all with a small budget's team, and you get Rain. This trailer available on the japanese marketplace isn't doing a good job in hyping the game, but I'll wait for the import release next week before judging it.

Meh, to tell you the truth, it looks like it improved but still i don't think its up to visual standards. There is nice lighting but other than that, could be much better. Other than that, gameplay looks fair. hehe. Still gonna follow it =D

I thought it would be a survival horror like silent hill.

Looks like sam fisher caught in a vampire las vegas, i agree with chaosknight though. It does look fair and the graphics could get better.

Might be fun though, i want to know what the whole jumping around part was about lol

I don't see this game ever being released. Infact I think production will end as soon as Ubisoft gets a hold of this video. If it's not already bad enough that the character blatantly looks like Sam Fisher, but does he have to animate exactly the same? I see this becoming a possible legal problem. Does anyone else? There's just too much likeness.

Defenitly. It's like they copied the anamations right out of double agent (not as smooth tho). Right down to his hand over the gun holster while crouch running.

Rain in Japan, Vampire's Rain elsewhere IIRC.

Well this game seems promising for a rental. The Splinter Cell series have been dying down on me and it's just not that much fun anymore. I love spy games it's just that like this game has shown it's not all about the spy. Some times you just have to go out and kill. Plus to add the multiplayer looks horrible. It kinda looked like FarCry's Predator mode, but just everyone is a Predator. I don't quite like the whole jumping in this game. Well I'll just have to wait till more info or gameplay is out on this game.

    Moonwalker Finished Conker on Rare Replay. Stil a lovely platformer but also managed to annoy me to no end with inverted aiming controls that can't be changed and oh boy at that camera sometimes. (28 minutes ago)

    alimokrane playthrough so to have health regeneration in Normal mode is a bit of a let down.... (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane RE7 will have health regeneration in Normal difficulty mode... it's slower than easy mode and disabled in madhouse mode. That kind of ruins it for me. Madhouse is a difficuly I would attempt on a 2nd (1 Hour ago)
