Xbox 360 PS3

LucasArts releases four new images of Fracture, Day 1 Studios' action-terraforming game. Visually, it seems to me the game looks better than before. Can't wait for a playable demo!

Generally they derive from a standard parent framework for a shooter. This game looks like it takes a lot from already existing works in view. The concept behind the different terrain physics is mostly original though. But it looks like other shooters.

The problem is, from the screenshots and the videos that have been released, this looks boring. It's my opinion, and I hope it isn't the case, but I see very little to inspire me to even play a demo.

Ouch. That's kinduva negative attitude to have, isn't it mate? I mean c'mon, demos are free. What's 5 to 10 minutes to run through one long enough to decide whether you like a game or not?

Yeah I know the art direction this game is going in has been done to death and all, but I think as a consumer, it's kinda counter productive to decide not to play even a demo. What if art direction aside, Fracture turns out to be one of the most inspired games of the year? Not saying that it will, just saying is all. Five minutes of free demo with the right game can change your life, mate.

As for Fracture itself, I'll personally wait until the demo comes out to pass judgment. In the right hands, terrain deformation has all the game play potential of portals, and we saw how well that little experiment worked out.

agreed, this game has no originality in it. only thing i see that it has going for it is the awesome terrain deforming.

Why do you prefer 3rd person shooters? I always think that people who prefer 3rd person shooters are those who kind of suck at games, so they have to know exactly where their character 'is'.

Anyways, I believe all these crappy 3rd person shooters in 08 is gonna drastically slow the trend after most of them fail.

completely agree. im yet to see anything remotely appealing about the game other then the terrain deformation gimmick, but thats all it seems to be so far, a gimmick. nothing worth getting excited over at all.

After the last few trailers i dropped my hopes that this will be an innovative game.

The lowering/rising of the ground + some shockwaves are really the only 'innovative stuff' you can do (guns and grenades both raise/lower the ground - wow)
All the buildings are non deformable... so they will not be affected by the terraforming at all.

There were other games that did this idea better before (Red Faction), and when Battlefield BC will be released, no one will ask for this game anymore.

Terraforming - o.k., but not really interesting without destructible complexes/buildings.


So i put my hope into StarWars FU to bring some new material physics and destructible environments. Or may be the new Indy game...


best regards,

    MrWhite And those headcrabs in dark rooms are going to be fun. Fuckin hell. (11 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Imagine scrambling to reload the gun, dropping the ammo on the ground, and picking up a brick instead and bashing a combine troop with it, saving your bacon. (11 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Melmoth: Well, then, if that gameplay is indicative of what its like overall, and if the AI can react to you touching things, thus making noise or becoming visible, then its going to be revolutionary (11 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @MrWhite: ..and ofc it's the perfect opportunity for us to build Dog :) (11 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @MrWhite: they say it's a full length game like HL2 of about 13-15 hours long. And making it VR only they can take proper advantage of having hands. Hope there's many nice gameplay innovations . (11 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite The only thing I'm sort of surprised about is the lack of full body presence. Boneworks has it, and it looks like it's sharing the same kind of mechanics engine too. (11 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Melmoth: Looks amazing. HL2 is still the best single player FPS in existence. Experiencing that world in VR will be incredible. (11 Hours ago)
