That video looked quite good, its weird how this game can look good sometimes and really terrible at others.

I tried the PC demo a couple of weeks back and to be honest I wasn't that impressed by it. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, it's just that it doesn't do anything especially well and it feels, well, a bit uninspired. The level in the demo wasn't that interesting to explore and I soon got tired of constantly fighting off the same type of enemies every few steps.

It could work better on the consoles but, for me, it lacked the compulsive addictive factor of the old Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games on the last gen consoles and that's what this game reminded me of.

PC version is getting a PhysX patch some time soon, if you have the hardware (ie. a decent nVidia card) then I would look at getting that version.

Ditto.

I wanted to like it, but just couldn't get into it. Perhaps I would feel more comfortable with it on a console, but unless they put up a demo for it, I doubt I'll be given it a try.

Ugh. This game's engine is so ugly. Its not bad tech wise, but it looks like someone just learned how to do modeling and stuff. The Lighting is omnipresent, the shaders are terrible, etc etc etc.

those are some very clunky turning animations!

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not "Here, you can have it all and become a god that can knock over a 30 tonne beast!" Had to be a balance there. There wasn't one. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite having a perk slot system too. Only being able to equip a couple to suit what kind of style you want to play as. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Little things that could have elevated the game from being just 'OK' to deserving the praise it got. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite another solution for repetitive combat and progression is a weapon maintenance system, sparser ammo, and making each machine have a unique invulnerability to certain attacks. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A simple solution would have been a command wheel function for overridden machines. Attack, defend, stay, suicide attack, follow etc (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the maps design didn't facilitate it. Like I say, poor design everywhere. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: I just think its sloppy AI coding, and just a general lack of want of doing it that way. One other reason is the on rails system for automatic riding (9 Hours ago)
