Doesn't look anything special to me. I cant see it being anything amazing for the 360 unfortunatly.

I like how people just randomly make random comments like that.

The handling of the guns looks terrible. I've played my fair share of cheap crappy FPS games and they all seem to share that horrible disconnected weak stance. I'd love to see dynamic movement of the pistols and the assault rifle pulled into the shoulder instead of that weak hip shooting grip.

Agreed. I think it looks better than 90% of the other incoming 360 shooters. Plus this one's actually doing something 'new' (which is probs more than Halo 3 will be doing...)

I think that is one of the most important features for an FPS, if the gun is in a strange position it will never feel right. Far Cry is a perfect example, in the original PC version, the gun was in the better position, up and against the shoulder, but in the console versions its like below the waist which puts me off straight away. CS is another example of the position the guns should be in, otherwise it just feels odd.

Hey Slabs, you are so correct. The problem with that is that most if not all of these FPSs being released is that the developers don't concentrate enough on character awareness. Nobody walks around toting guns like that as if the weapons just float in space. I don't have gripes about the visuals however. The game is gorgeous.

Is there a reason people narrow it down to "360 shooters"? Why not just say "90% of all shooters"? I don't get it. =/

I almost didn't want to download this vid but WOW I'm glad I did, the game footage is amazing, the animations actually looks revolutionary for an FPS

Look at the blood effects! oh man that is bloody!

I like how he shot the guy, the camera tilted and he shot the guy on his head.

Apart from graphics, the game looks interesting. I wish they improved the graphics abit more.

One thing's for sure, the finishing moves are TeH coolness :

It looks really good. Lets just hope its bettre than Riddick.

I don't understand anyone who's having complaints about this game. For me, this is one of the most promising games to come out this year.
You can't see it that well in this trailer but the graphics are absolutely gorgeous and sharp as hell. The Darkness powers are awesome, physics are excellent, gameplay looks to be pretty good. instant buy for me, especially with riddick in mind. Too bad I don't have a 360

You say that as if Riddick was a bad game.

That looks incredible. I can't wait.

WOW!Man this looks very good, I mean everything!

Woah, that demonic thing on the side of the guy's head ate that dude he just killed!
Commented on 2007-03-11 21:01:27
Holy hera! This looks incredible. I like how they have a very Equilibrium like feel to close combat. [For those of you who dont know, Equilibrium is a movie starring Christian Bale, and I suggest you watch :)] Looks amazing anyway.

I like those finishing moves ;) It seems quite violent, so they probably won't waiting an E rating from ESRB :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like here (norway) i know people who preordered it, none got it. so they can't have sent many this way. Personally i wasn't planning on getting one, but i feel sorry for those who tried and failed. (8 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth themselves), they should have put out a few more runs to atleast cover the people pre-ordering it. i'm fine with limited time availability otherwise. (9 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth

  • GriftGFX
