looks ok, kinda like cod 4 in third person. doubt i'll be buying it tho, and if i do it'll purely be for the official headset.

shadows look amazing,im a 360 gamer but im glad that the ps3 hardware is finally starting to show its power,
it only seems like the ps3 exclusives that work well on the ps3,if any game is cross platform the ps3 usually looses out,with the games coming out for ps3 soon i defo gonna invest i think.

I've not really seen anything of this that'd suggest it's a GRAW2 beater. It doesn't even seem to look at good graphically...

Looks like GRAW, but i think GRAW2 looks better.

Cod with recoil.

True, this is another very avg looking and playing shooter.

I see you're not familiar with Socom.

Only thing that impressed me from the beta was the lighting. Everything else, from the textures, to the stifled movement, and unwieldy controls is a joke

Another avg shooter.

The game looks alright, nothing special.. but hasn't anyone noticed that in most of the TGS videos so far, the people playing the games are useless? On both here and gametrailers lol. I couldnt watch the killzone video because they were just so bad and seeing someone die in this video everytime they come into combat was just terrible lol, SOCOM isn't THAT hard xD

Theme of TGS08: No one there knows how to play video games.

It's made to be a download title, and as such looks great.

I think the graphics are really good from what i've seen. The gameplay doesn't seem to good. But that's always the problem with multiplayer games. Sometimes it looks fun, sometimes it looks bad.

The online Beta was a real nightmare with the glimmering graphics and terrible lag....i couldnt stand playing it.

I was a real Socom fanboy....but i am spoiled by GRAW, CoD, GoW and the likes.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
