No tesselation? Really?
Do you realize how few games use tessellation? It'd be more surprising if this console port had tessellation. Plus, tessellation performance thus far has been pretty awful.

Auto Pad, Mouse and Keyboard Switching
Good. Everything should do this.

Some of the animations could really use some work, the running looks quite stale. The visuals at least look okay, and the effort put in the PC port seems better than I expected.

Now this Ubi could learn from.

Doesn't look bad. If there is a game remains to be seen.

Is tesselation really that noticeable in today's games? I've played a couple of games sporting it like Crysis 2 and Deus Ex and I couldn't really tell the difference if not for some comparison screen shots on the net. If the implementation was like something similar to the Heaven benchmark then I would be having that setting enabled.

I totally respect developers that take advantage of PC hardware and do not just do console ports. Unlike some people that buy expensive hardware then pirate games its like shooting themselves in the foot. I will be purchasing this one if it gets decent reviews =)

Greenmangaming.com has a 25% voucher for this game (and others) if you check the blog link at the top of the page (expires on the 10th). I decided to roll the dice on this one. Hope it's decent.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I never really understood why people get so bent out of shape over sales. Dreamcast and Sega Genesis are two of my favorite consoles ever. Love my WiiU. Just play games noobs. (24 minutes ago)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I'd like to see uncharted but that won't be this year. And as with every big game thing like E3, i'd love to see last guardian. I suppose that might be a surprise thing for this year...but i doubt it. (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I find it hard to believe that Microsoft doesn't have a single title to position as a big holiday release. Sure, it might be Halo 2, but I also (SADLY) half expect that strategy to work. (38 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I have a feeling E3 is going to be more a conveyor of bad news. Like division not coming this year, or destiny delayed until january...just annoying all round. (38 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I think MS will have sunset overdrive, halo 2 and forza horizon (oft rumoured to be 2014) and sony will have the order, last of us, driveclub. I think exclusive wise that'll be it from both. (42 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: yeah, the remake of halo 2...halo 5 ain't this year. I'd be surprised if either have anything to add to this year tbh. (44 minutes ago)
