This actually looks fairly decent, I must say. It could be the survival horror that Resident Evil wishes it was.

It'll probably come out for the current gen with a slightly lower resolution and fuzzier shadows. Seriously. It definitely think it looks like a cool game... welcome to the current generation, Nintendo :P

On another note- I really like how intense it looks. Hopefully it's dynamic in it's senarios, as the level design looks extremely linear. That part in the pitch black with just the muzzle flash lighting the area was pretty frightening. I just really wish it wasn't WiiU exclusive (atm)...

It seems the game really tries to kill off your current character your playing. The kid shot through the hall, passed a few zombies, shot at one that was way to close to the vent and when dealt with he re- enters the vent then all a sudden that large fat zombie that was at the end of the hall happens to pull you out and kill you? Unless that Zombie knows how to sprint, there is no way he could have gotten to the kid that fast and pull hum out.

Seems like a cool game, but i see no reason at all for it to be on Wii-U. I mean...really, inventory management and sniping? That the best you can do with it?

It feels like I am hating on Nintendo for this, but I think it's such a waste for them to do this for only the Wii U. Nintendo better support games like this so this doesn't end up like Red Steel on the Wii.

Lol the bit when he shot the zombie with a handgun and blew his legs off .. seriously ??

Looks ok, hope to see some good games on this platform in time.

Dont worry, Project Zero will be THE perfect horror game for the WiiU.

Ubisoft has already said it will possibly appear on other systems. They just say it'll likely require the vita or a smartglass device if it does happen.

(reads every comment section involving the WiiU) Man, Nintendo fanboys are bad,and in Denial, lol...

I really hope this "multi-screen trend" dies hard. As if asymetric titles couldn't happen over online play...

Who cares if it came to other platforms ? it looks like a pretty boring generic shooter to me.

Definitely doesn't look like a system seller.

If i were to get a wii-u this'd be the title to go along with it for sure. Then again, i'm not getting a Wii-U until i see a game that looks good and actually benefits from using the tablet controller. Again, a ghost recon type squad based shooter where i could draw paths on maps to set up the AI and plan an assault or give instructions to team mates or something like that. I'd buy that shit in a heart beat, because the tablet controller would make the process of planning it a bazillion times smoother than compared to a controler, and you could easily re-route your squad mates in real-time rather than pausing and fixing and so forth.

Cos the wii-u is looking like a complete waste of time and money, just like the wii?

Isn't praising it before you play it just as bad by that same logic? It looks like a PoS with pretty much no interesting gams to justify a purchase, isn't that enough?

Never praised IT.I praise Nintendo for making games what they are today.Twisting my words do not make YOUR bashing of IT any more interesting.

The only problem is that their hardware has a history of lacking power/features and 3rd party support. There is Precedent. Unless you want to play the 40th Mario( which are good, admittedly, just tired IMO)or Zelda. The fact that there is debate over whether it will be much more powerful than the nearly 7 year old "current" machines is insane. If that's what some people want, that's cool, but I'd say there are plenty of legitimate reasons to not expect much from the Wii-U( ugh).

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: stutter can be frame pacing related, which is seperate to fluctuating framerate stutters. NDS rivals was locked at 30fps and stuttered due to a frame pacing bug (4 Hours ago)

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker and remove the stutter, cause except for the stutters, it feels smooth, if that makes sense. The blur of 30fps is gone and i like that. But i am jumpin to conclusions now. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker So they will have the fps locked at 30 on X1 with new patch, but also STILL looking into the stuttering? So we'll get locked 30fps still with stutters? I honestly rather have them keeping it unlocked (6 Hours ago)
