looks as bad as the earlier screen suggested.

i cant imagine anyone outside of those desperate for kinect content to really give a shit tbh. it just looks awful. and that box art is some of the worst i've seen since the suffering. just look like a typically weird, hammy, japanese horror rail shooter (albiet not entirely on rails) i just dont see the appeal? even with a control pad, light gun, move, wii, i wouldnt touch this thing.

lol.

the first showing was a bit crappy, but it has grown on me. Original games beats getting just crappy wii ports to sell waggle.

It's not on rails at all unless you CHOOSE to autotravel BETWEEN enemy encounters/significant events, you can freely walk around and there are probably various things you can find if you choose to explore. In fact you might be forced to explore in order to progress like getting the key from the bloody toilet in the demo for example. It's not a shooter either, it's melee combat with a few throwing weapons. You obviously didn't even watch the trailer or any other videos of it. (If so then how can you even judge it?) And complaining about the box art is just a pathetic attempt to add to the bashing. How does (your opinion of) the box art affect the game in any way whatsoever? Do you play games that have bad (in your opinion) box art and think "Damn, I'm trying to play this game but I just can't get the awful box art out of my head. It's completely ruined the experience. Therefore this game is total crap!"? LMAO!

The appeal is being in a melee-based House Of The Dead-style (and made by the same team) survival horror (with possible Resident Evil/Silent Hill elements) via full body controls therefore immersing you in the experience far more than just using a joypad or even a lightgun. That's one of the major points of Kinect and hopefully (and very likely) there will be more and more games that do it even more than this does. I really don't understand how people can't see this, especially when so many people have been wishing for this kind of experience for so long.

I'm definitely buying this for the reasons mentioned not because I'm "desperate for Kinect content" since I only actually have a few Kinect games as I'm not interested in many of ones released so far so I'm not claiming all Kinect games are the best games ever, let alone have bought all of them, I just recognise Kinect's vast potential (and have done since it was first revealed but called Natal) and have bought the games that interest me.

you do know dead island is round the corner?
also i belive your working on this game, due to i just cant see how some can be so fucking excited over this, it looks alright..would rent it if i had kinect
but dead island looks WAY more fun than this.

Looks better in footage than in stills, but there is something about it that feels off and i cant quite put my finger on it.

more fun than cutting freaks to bits? In defense of this game and plain hate to the downgrade that is that game (dead island), atleast here it seems fun to kill guys and its not a rinse&repeat for Xp kind of thing... how can i play a game that promised me the next big thing in laceration & damage tech since Soldier of Fortune, and complettly throwed it away like they never promised it? besides their two (TWO) previous games were complete Stinkers.

Have you actually played any Kinect games? Even Kinect Adventures is more fun than it looks. It's hard to compare Kinect games to joypad games as they're just a different experience really. Just look at the reviews of Child Of Eden (or even better, play it!), they point out that although it's still a great game when played with a joypad it's even better when played with Kinect because it's a different and better experience.

By the way, here's a list of games made by Wow (although they weren't always called Wow, Sega have changed most teams' names over the years, the only teams I can think of that have kept the same name are AM2 and Sonic Team) with certain stand out games bolded:

7th Dragon
Alex Kidd series
Alien Storm
Altered Beast
Blood Will Tell
Deep Fear
Dynamite Deka series (Die Hard Arcade, Dynamite Cop 2, and Asian Dynamite)
Golden Axe series
Nightshade
Phantasy Star series
Project Altered Beast
Sakura Taisen 3
Sakura Taisen 4
Sakura Taisen: Atsuki Chishio Ni
Sakura Taisen V
Sakura Wars series
Sega Golf Club
Sega GT series
Sega Marine Fishing
Shinobi series
Skies of Arcadia
Streets of Rage series
The House of the Dead series
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles II
Wing War

Those are VERY good reasons why I have faith in this game! :D

I dont know of it's early promises, i saw it was borlands style of play and fell in love :)

Core given loads of those are great games, i want to like this it's zombies :D and who dont love zombies
but i dunno there is something about this that seems off, if i rented it i would probably change my mind, hell i thought dead space looked meh until i played the demo and instantly went out and bought it,, still not played the sequel though.. it looks meh lol
I watch the vids of this and nothing..
I watch the vids of dead island and SOLD! CoOp, RPGlite, zombies in open world environment, with a hint of possible decent story (cant be worse than borderlands...) Thats where my money will go this year for zombie love, and with the likes of Uncharted 3 Halo CEA Gears 3 BF3 Skyrim possible diablo 3 let alone games like LBP 2 dead space 2 and a bunch of others that i need to catch up with (just did halo wars ffs) i cant honestly afford to take the risk to buy a game that does nothing for me when i watch the vids, let alone buy Kinect.

shame that :( assume they realized the limitations of consoles then.

About the game


What's up?

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (4 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (7 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (8 Hours ago)
