It really reminds me of legacy of kain soul reaver, except not as good :/  been playing it for about 3 hours and i think it not only looks dated but the combat is annoying i.e you could be absolutely tw@ing a low level enemy with a combo using decent powered weapons, and it will not effect/stop him winding up to do an attack, Also the camera is also VERY annoying when you are traversing walls and such-like. Just my experience but they soil the game for me :(

No wonder it's called "twitch". Gave me one not a minute after trying to get into it...

I'm torn about this game. The visuals are on one hand pretty cool comic book style, on the other hand kind of bland, washed out and dated. Combat looks very good, puzzle solving ok. Platforming very standard stuff, but fun never the less. What I really dislike though is the loot system and cluttered inventory. Not my cup of tea at all. Adds little in terms of depth (comparing a few stats isn't exactly hard), but takes a lot of time. It's padding that isn't needed imo. For that reason I'll likely wait for a pricedrop.

Hey guys--just waiting for the highlights version of this video (without the empty first minute) to encode. Then the archive will show properly. Sorry for the troubles.

I keep getting that feeling that they shouldn't have live streamed the game for that long just before it's release

 @torrne667  @ing gotta learn to dodge...even in the middle of combos... death is a "get in get out" murderer. He has no block but is gifted with high agility used to dodge and evade attacks. As far as the camera goes... welll to each their own.

 @Anstark lol idk.... You might be one of the "it's jersey thing idiot's" apparently originality doesn't exist for you.. But I agree that you wouldn't understand me. Your prolly one of the people that thinks paranormal activity is a great series lmao YOLO is prolly  in your vocabulary. :) I heart you only because you exist so we real gamers can tell the difference :)

 @moataz1993 First of all...that's a pretty disgusting comparison LOL. Secondly, it seems like it's going to be a great fall in all aspects of media and technology.  Lots of amazing games, movies...the new iPhone and the new Nexus. GREAT!  Let us pray our skinny wallets can handle all of this stimuli.

 @Punkerdoodle87 lol nice speech bro , again WTF are you talking about ??????, and plus ya  leave it for the real gamers to know at least we know that's not u , you take one look at a game and the first four words u type are "this a garbage game" and my vocabulary is fine thank you very much I "Prolly" not one of those people , and what brought YOLO in to this :S , you need help , i guess because just like u said : "you exist so we real gamers can tell the difference :) " have a nice day :P "as i Put down my Fire extinguisher!!!!!!!"
