Hm, those screens don't look very good, but the story of this game is very cool. Hope gameplay will be good.

Hrimthur, I think you are king of the understatement. While I do think the story is sounding interesting, the screens are dire!
Commented on 2008-01-23 14:15:18
Yeah, they really don't look very good, but I wait till I see the whole thing in motion! Screens are never very reliable. And I think the game is still far away of being released, so don't judge too fast ^^

... king of understatement... Muahaha... I'm just prudent with my previsions ^^

I played it. didn't like it. Bad death animations(overall animation), bad rag doll. low rez textures, pop in, bad/boring A.I., audio was pretty run of the mill.

Also it seemed that some times when i would fire at an enemy, (while holding down the left trigger) because the enemy was hiding behind rubble or a car there was an invisible wall that would not allow me to hit them. as if there were invisible polys.

This game feels like something that was meant for last gen. Even then there are a lot of issues.
Im going to forecast an average score of 7.5.

Well, that doesn't sound too good ^^
Hm... when the final game will have all those probs, then I'll say NO THANX!
By the way, have you played a demo? Or is the game allready released??

Played it, fun but flawed. Love the style its all bright which makes a very nice change. AI was rather dumb but it could be one to get cheap
Commented on 2008-01-23 17:17:12
All bright eh? Nice, im so sick of the stupid boring brown/gray/dark "moody atmosphere" of all wargames. They arent moody, they are just boring to look at and depressing to play.. Always raining or cloudy or dirty or ruins everywhere :P

I don't think that war is bright and shiny and amusing ^^

at the same time cities and landscapes don't get a brown/greyisch colerscheme and all the other colours disappear when a war start or is happening.

Commented on 2008-01-23 21:57:15

Exactly why I didn't have good hopes for this game even before the demo. After the demo, well, this might just be the next Hour of Victory. Original story yes, but why even bother to dive further into it?
Commented on 2008-01-23 23:25:51
Tried it and I so wish I hadnt. I had a good day up till this point but this game has insulted my intelligence as a gamer so badly that it managed to ruin my day.. almost.

Whoever is responsible for this ABYSMAL game needs to be covered in tar, feathered and then cut to death with the DVD discs and global resources this POS game will waste. ARGGGHHHH!

My forecast for this INSULT to all gamers will be less than 5, IF and when a venerable site ever reviews it. A game like Hour of Victory had graphics that stomp this through the ground and it got around 5ish, this should get 2/10 at most.

Oh and the worst part which none of you nancies mentioned was the bad framerates. It slows down and stutters all the time. An insult to Epic's Unreal technology as well no doubt.

I thought the demo made the game look like one of the WORST games this generation.

The graphics are pretty bad mostly, but some points really stick out as horrible, like the explosion effects, they remind me of Twisted Metal 1 or Duke Nukem 3d, a few simple sprites that look like stock effects yet still manage to cause slowdown. The only thing about the graphics that are somewhat above average are the textures in some places and the lighting effects in some places.

There was a few cool sound effects, but other sound effects were very muddled, like the guy who tells you to get on the truck at the end of the level (which is also pretty hilariously stupid dialog).

Gameplay is very bad. AI is some of the worst I've seen in a FPS in a very long time. Enemies just stare at you, you can walk up to them point blank and they still can miss you. The scripted events are especially poor, like the part where 4 nazi soldiers parachute along the same exact path (and they never shoot at you, despite you shooting at them), oh and the way the gun 'pops out' of an enemy when you kill them reminds me of Quake 1.

Nicely put Jigen. I'm too aggravated to analyze this poo that deeply.

are you thinking of sabataur?
Commented on 2008-01-24 05:55:42 In reply to KORNdog
No that is not the game I was thinking of but lol I thought Sabataur was Turning Point aswell.

The trailer I'm thinking of starts outside in what looks like the Washington Monument and feels almost like a Hitman game.

I swear I thought it was named Fall of Liberty, I'll keep looking and dig it up

i might know what your on about but cant remember the name. where the graphics overly washed out and bright white, a very stylised looking game?
