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?
  • Tinks
    Tinks Speaking of which Quake was pretty baller even on Dreamcast (59 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Also, the potential goldmine of converting older games to VR. like Rez. It works, and it works bloody well. I just wish more devs would do it. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite More additions like that to full games is whats needed, instead of searching for a "killer app". That could be years off. I'll take what Codemasters and Capcom have done. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Megido: RE7 was pretty substantial, even if its a tacked on experience, its the best way to experience the game. I think thats pretty telling, permitted you have good VR legs. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @aphex187: Quake Champions returns tomorrow. Get that Dreamcast controller ready :P (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But maybe COD going back in time will help them stand out. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @b0vril: I think the stopped innovating when Infinity Ward fell to pieces. Kinda feel bad for Respawn. They have to compete with the monster they made which also looted their new IP for ideas. (2 Hours ago)
