It's a lot easier to copy Blade Runners art style than to create something totally new an unique, plus that style seems to have a fan base.

It does look almost exactly like the Cry Engine Blade Runner pics....

Damn, an indie developer can make a game with a custom engine that looks almost as good as a concept done in CryEngine.

Yes because they can build an engine that doesn't have muliplatform limitations and use the PC's memory and graphics power. It's pretty awesome engine and you can see the amount of lighting and detail in everything, on the robot parts are everything.

Music is a bit weird, spoiled by the off tone chord change and guitar wow like effect on the synthesizer. I used to have a Korg M1 and it sounds like they used on as well.

Just finished the demo. Not too shabby.

Felt a lot like UT. Will probably wait until it's $15.

I will buy this as soon as they release the patch with 3D support I think.

Pretty darn good game but very short. I played for 9 hours, and I'm pretty damn slow in the way I play. I didn't get all the upgrades so I may play again now the new patch is out. If they release some cheap expansions like $5 for 4hrs+ gameplay I'd definitely buy them!

good that they're keeping up with it (though I expect nothing less). should be polished up really well by the end of the year when I have time to play it. maybe some DLC too.

Kinda like witcher 2. I haven't played it yet (installed it on release date though haha) and now they've added tons of new stuff. MAkes me want to keep waiting to be honest.

I was halfway through chapter 2 in Witcher 2 and just stopped. For some reason I didn't feel like continuing. There were some annoying bugs for me, like quest objectives not being at the spots they were supposed to be, etc.

When I heard about 2.0, my interest in it came back, so now I am going to play it from the beginning when that comes out.

its quite a repetitive game, and pretty frustrating to play in my opinion. the novelty of the demo got old quick in the full version
