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?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (26 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (36 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (54 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (6 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
