The First 10 minutes: Rain

The First 10 minutes: Rain

As promised last week here are the first 10 minutes of Rain (aka Vampire's Rain here), released on 360 in Japan with a PS3 release announced for sometimes later. I did not have time to go further than the first part of the tutorial so it's definitely too early for my opinion, but I can already say that this game makes me appreciate Ubisoft's work on Sam Fisher's movements a lot more than before!

that looks horrible, looks like it was made for old gen and then converted into next gen to earn the extra buck....shocking stuff,

Why do I torture myself watching footage of a game that's doomed before its release? That was absolutely horrible. I've seen elementary school kids act better than this.

I think I played this on the PSX ten years ago. Could sell on the PS3 seeing as they have nothing else to play, which I'm sure is their core strategy with this title.

What r u guys talking about .. Sure it's not perfect but I actually thought what I saw was pretty decent. a few hick ups in animation and the graphics arent exactely a showcase but I think it's doing the job. will probably rent it when it comes out.

Never judge a book by his cover... I will rent it first.

Does look cheap, but ugliest? Seems like a bit much. Go back to the launch period, and I'm sure you can find uglier :)

Hot nose piercing on that chick tho >:)

the launch period can be excused because the gaming world was going through a transition. but after 1 year this is un ecceptable

Atleast you know this game will push a few copies for the achievement score crazies.

WOW ... LOL ... WOW ... LOL ... WOW

Should I go on ?

The graphics aren't nearly as bad as some are making them out to be. The animations however, most certainly are. Ew. And the dialogue is painfully bad. I am actually crying here. The voice acting was better than most games but still not hot.
Commented on 2007-01-30 09:57:43
20 mins in and no combat!!!
Commented on 2007-01-30 10:02:47
Graphics are not great, but it wasent bad either. The lip sync needs work, and the animation looked, well, Ok I guess.

I want to play a demo off this game, but like DC said...nearly 20 mins, and no one to kill.

BlimBlim, please do a 720 video of this game again when there is combat, cant wait to see it.

Sure this game aint SC or MGS, but it tries, to be a good stealth game, but I dont know, havent played it or anything, so I can not judge on it so personal, but form what I have seen, it might be an ok game for rental, although you can not do it here in Sweden, which sucks ball like always.

Thought it was quite good actually, reminded me a bit of Resident Evil.

Will be getting this i think, one thing odd though is that everything is in English for a Japanese game.

Just picked this up today, I'll post some impressions later this evening after work.

It looks like it has it's fair share of problems judging from what I've seen, but I wouldn't dismiss it altogether.

About the game

What's up?
  • rayy
    rayy has more fun* (28 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @KORNdog: TW3 can't be a Skyring well done because W3 is not trying to be Skyrin. Different games and different type of RPG I think. You could say one more fun quest than the other though. (28 minutes ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (8 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (11 Hours ago)
