the realtime cutscenes are so close to the athmospere and visual quality of the CG, its unbelievable.

Amazing sci fi art, great visuals.

Too bad its a RTS, boring genre IMO.
If it ever became a 3rd person shooter like Space Marine/Gears of War, I would love that.

I never never liked RTS, never seriously played a single RTS before. But recently I decided to give it a try after watching some pro matches (which were very entertaining btw). I then bought the game.

Buying the game was one of the best decision I have ever made.

I played SC1 in the old days and Warcraft 3 and a bit of Halo Wars...yeah, very boring genre IMO, not my type.

Stunning CGI effects...as always. Blizzard is the only one who really can compete with the Final Fantasy CGI videos/cutscenes.


Warcraft (3) and Starcraft > best RTS games out there.




@Sath

Halo Wars is just bad. Everything what's important for an RTS game is missing there. It's a shame that Halo Wars is a product from Ensemble Studios, the makers of the Age of Empires Series (great games but AoE2 is still the best out of the whole series). HW is just a huge dissapointment. Even the Command & Conquer 3 console versions are better stratgey titles.

I guess RTS genre is pretty boring to me as well. Maybe SC2 is better than I thought.

About the game


What's up?

    KORNdog @Sdarts: no mans sea. crackdown. state of decay 2. ori 2. cuphead? i'm struggling tbh. half of those are indie games too :/ (24 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts So, what exclusives do Microsoft have for the rest of 2017 and 2018? That aren't Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Horizon 4, Halo 6 or Gears of War 5. The latter 3 are in development, it's Microsoft. (30 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @alimokrane: Biomutant's gameplay looks fine for me, just like 99% of all games already on the market. Not every game will reinvent a genre's standard, which is fine as long as the gameplay is fun. (35 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: fable was an action RPG too though. so you wanted it to be a game like DMC? not something like the witcher 3/horizon? because it's more the latter than the former. (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: the cgi trailer made it look like some sort of speedy action game which appealed to me.. Game play seems rather slow and I got both a Zelda and banjo nuts and bolts/fable feel (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 @alimokrane: Those games would play like complete ass crack with a controller. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog what did you see that made you think it isn't an action rpg? (2 Hours ago)
