The game, a 3rd-person tactical action, is set in year 2025 and lets you follow the story of two characters - a stealthy kind of girl, and the gun combat specialist.

Next-gen is brown.

Other than that, though, it looks pretty damn good.

What's with all the blurring. How can you aim at something?
Commented on 2008-02-03 04:44:19
too blurry and lack of detail imo

The problem with making a game like every other game is it shows how much your programmers / artists suck.

For example, GRAW1&2, Rainbow Six Vegas, and Call of Duty 4 do EVERYTHING this game does, but better, and are out now.

Looks like someone just blatantly ripped off of MGS4. Middle East setting, check. Over saturated filter, check. Special agent and a bunch of soldiers, check. Robotic weapons, check. The only thing they didn't rip off is MGS4's awesomeness.

Woo more American propaganda games.

I wonder how they got the idea to fuck the whole game up by adding so much bloom that it makes anyone who looks at it wonder if it isn't time to get a new pair of glasses. Except for the ridiculous amount of bloom it just looks plain uninspired. We've all seen it many times before and this game doesn't even do what it does all that well judging from these screens.

Looks like Metal Gear Solid 4 but more original in gameplay with tactical and two characters.

To say im tired of these derivative depressing ass fake military shooters would be an understatement.

And who the hell are "Black Lion Studios" talk about trying to make yourself seem decent by having people think your someone else (Lionhead studios anyone? Look at the bloody logo for christ sake! Even thats a rip off! Might as well have called themselves Rocstar)

Pretty much every shooter is based in the middle east now, and the whole brown crap was long around before MSG4

games have no more originality in them people so just live with it. the only thing developers can do is make a game in a setting that hasn't been overused (like world war II) and develop it. Crysis wen in a tropical setting which we dont see much, Left 4 Dead is using zombies but we dont see many zombie games, Call of duty 4 brought the middle easter setting to life, and Halo 3 used aliens coming to Earth. they're all great games and they all use settings that we have seen before in movies or past video games. the reason why these games succeed is because they have excellent gameplay.

this game has a chance because its not just another modern setting war game and it looks to have some sci-fi stuff going on in it. no that original but still a lot of potential in the making of a great game.

denied ops all over again, who started this "he's/she's the stealthy Sniper and i'm the demolition man" game trend? nothing here looks inspired, not to mention both characters look as generic as possible. seems companies will continue to use bloom lighting as long as there's a sucker out there who will equate it to awesome graphics ..nobody learned from COD4 obviously.

And who the hell are "Black Lion Studios" /quote]

Propaganda? I'm pretty sure these aren't endorsed or made by the US Government, which would automatically disqualify them as propaganda. Some of us are actually PROUD of our country. Sorry you have to live in such a miserable place where that doesn't apply.
Commented on 2008-02-03 14:40:31
2025, eh?

And not all Americans are proud of our country. I'm ashamed of it, and rightly so. Half the population is retarded.

It's *at least* 15 months left till release, by that standard, I think it looks pretty good. The studio was created in early 2007, so it has probably only been under development for one year.

hmm, I think I could live without this one...
