It looks incredible, I like vigilante games and I’m so glad somebody brainstormed up something that involves how ingrained technology has become and the overwhelming power you can have manipulating it.
Not a huge fan of the way he slows down time in order to interact with things and make pixel-perfect judgements. The ‘bullet-time’ thing looks way too easy to rely on, I prefer the challenge of having to adjust and act on the fly, even if the difficulty gets ramped significantly.
I like how there’s a very sparse amount of bullets in the gun by the HUD, barely a clip in his pistol. Makes me think they’ll stay true to how rare ammunition and how relentless the police would be for a guy like that, and not go all Grand Theft Auto on his abilities. Not to bash Grand Theft Auto… Vice City is my jam.[/quote]
The game just looks crazy. Definitely getting AC+GTA vibe there. The hud actually reminds me a bit of the one in AC2. Was checking out this demo and was blown away with the concept.
Graphics are not as crisp as in the PS4 vid you posted above but I was still impressed. The showdown at the end is fucking badass. The only bad thing I can point is that the car handling looks a bit cumbersome, one of the few things that irk me in video gaming.
Damn I love the fighting, both melee and gunfights. I love when take-downs focus more on violence and brute force than technicality and finesse. (Kicks to the face, as opposed to judo throws if you will.)
The gunplay mechanics looks a lot like Max Payne 3 did, I’m not decided on them yet but I could probably learn to deal with it, my cynicism is probably an exception. I love the interaction between the guy who survived the pile-up next to his dead wife/girlfriend. Looks like they put quite a bit into character emotion and complexity, huge fan of that in my games.
I like the kind of car design that comes with a game like GTA4, the driving realism of those cars was a welcome change of pace from the usual engine they base cars on. (Looking at you Need For Speed.) I wish more developers would take note of the GTA4 engine when it comes to cars, it’s only of the only things they did well on that game. (Better moving cars does not make up for no Black Sabbath and only ONE David Bowie song.) ONE. As much as I like Fascination, wasn’t even one of the better ones, still waiting for Sound And Vision to rear it’s beautiful head…
