Trailer of Battlestations: Pacific

Eidos released these images and a gameplay trailer of Battlestations: Pacific, to be released around April on PC and Xbox 360. The graphics in this action-strategy game might not be the finest , but the first game had solid gameplay.

Well.. WOW! I'm actually impressed! If this is in-game then it certainly looks good enough for me! I liked the gameplay in the first Battlestations, this one looks enjoyable for me too.

May not be the finest graphics, but I still like how it looks. It doesn't have the overusing of shiny metal and such, wich so many titles do. It looks more natural this way. A bit like half-life 2.
Also, the cockpit view looks amazing, especially with the lighting.

I didn't mean that the graphics are *bad*, but I don't think the game looks incredible either. The game takes place out in open sea, so they should be able to crank out some more. The framerate seems to hold up though, that's always nice.

With that in mind, the images are in PC resolution so the footage could be from the same version.

I agree with Manager, and holding the framerate up is the least that we could expect with those graphics.

Graphics are more than i was expecting. Midway gfx quality was already satisfying too me. Abscence of framedrops and/or screen tearing is always a plus (considering even top titles as GoW2 and Fallout 3 didn't escape these problems). I gave Midway a high review score and still consider it to be one of the finest RTS games on console. It had a certain Operation Flashpoint grandeur with the ability to pop into any vehicle/plane on such large battlefields. I'm expecting Pacific will be at least equally enjoyable.

About the game

    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (21 minutes ago)

    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (23 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (26 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane etc.... (31 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: The issue with what you suggest is they are FPS games and or MP, not my cup of tea. I am talking about SP games: adventure/action/horror. Where are the hard Ninja Gaidens, Dragon Quests (31 minutes ago)
