Ah, thanks for reminding me. I have to preload this tonight. :)

Hopefully this game is good. It sure looks different.

I'm hoping the hand to hand combat will be somewhat similar to Chronicles of Ridd!ck's.

The mainstream gaming media are blowing this one off, but it looks really impressive to me. Can't wait to try it out tomorrow.

Here is an early "review", though its more like a chat session to sum up the experiences of 4 game reviewers:

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2009...omment-175770/

They give it 4 out of 4 thumbs up. They really enjoyed it.

The last portion of the review sums it up.

Quote:

John: I want to say about the melee: The visceral nature of the combat is just astonishing. The force and heft makes you reel, and the sense of contact is incredible.
Kieron: Totally. KICK! PUNCH!
Alec: It’s incredibly brutal in its feedback loop. I really felt bad about kicking guys when they’re down.
Kieron: Yeah. I mean, I didn’t feel bad. I felt ruthless. For me, the height of the game is stuff like stunning an enemy, grabbing him, kneeing him in the face three times - no more - and then throwing him to my left, where I know another enemy is, knocking them both over.
Jim: Compared to Mechants Of Brooklyn - a very similar project in size and attitude - this is a true feat of design and production.
John: We’ve been quite picky about bits and pieces, but I think that’s testament to the fantastic standard overall. It in no way feels like the first game from an indie developer.
Alec: Yes, we’re not criticising its fundamentals. It’s an FPS fisticuffs game that looks and feels incredible.
John: My concluding remarks would be: Amazingly brutal, properly good melee combat, in the most beautiful lunatic world.

Jim: Enough! VERDICT!
John: BUY!
Alec: The Meerian thumb is aloft.
Jim: BUY!
They also mentioned that the only game that bears any resemblance to it would be Chronicles of Riddick. :D

EDIT: Thread stuck. :D

The mainstream blow off most titles like this, anything that isn't Halo 6 or Gears 14 is forgotten.

It probably should have been stuck when it was released but its a little late now.

In that case, I'll sticky it. :p
