Driv3r is one of the most hyped game of the year. Atari did a lot of stuff to push that game, lots of short films, advertising. I won't be long since it's not worth it. This game is a disgrace to videogames. It's been a long time since such an obviously half finished game had ever been released (Matrix comes to my mind, another Atari game), and I have absolutely nothing good to say about it. Technically or gameplay wise there is almost nothing good about Driv3r. An all star cast does not make a good game !
Technically Driv3r is awful, I think I had never seen such a buggy and obviously half tested game since quite a long time now (Matrix ?). The clipping is incredible, with some LOD problems too. The framerate is awful and most of the time below 30 fps.
The car driving part is ok but far, so far, from good. The cars are way too heavy and there is no speed sensation.
The parts on foot are a joke. It uses a halo like setup but since it's too sensitive you have a hard time going through doors, not even mentioning firing on things...
I'd say to stay as far as possible from that game, but since it seems some people actually think it's a good I'd say you should rent it first (if you can rent games in your country...)
The video is not as "good" as what I usually do. It was recorded by a friend of mine who came here yesterday evening. Usually I would do a new video where I play correctly but I thought having this video "as is" would be more representative of what it's like to play that game ;)
This VR rhythm game looks pretty fun: [url] (1 Hour ago)
that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (3 Hours ago)
Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (3 Hours ago)
The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (3 Hours ago)
We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (3 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (3 Hours ago)
I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (6 Hours ago)
