Graphics visual effects on the magic spells, great animations, the only thing lacking is the weight behind the attacks and hit detection, other than that great stuff.

And absolutely wooden characters.

Sadly not, real shame as I love using a bow and arrow in RPGs. Still, can't wait for this one, didn't play the first as I can't stand point and click combat, like to get the hits in myself for a more immersive experience :)

Dayum, those graphics are amazing...

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
