This game looks awesome, although the graphics look like they could use just a little bit more work. The combat seems fair, though your enemies seem kinda hard to kill, not to mention aim at. This game seems like a combination of two games; Halo 3 and Crysis. Both games were and still are fun to play, but the constant shooting and blowing things up with fairly weak explosives gets boring after a while. This game looks like it will keep you going with ever adapting combat, and even more with your ever adapting arsenel and abilities. It looks the same as all other FPS games, but has its own distinction in a way. It's not my place to put this game down or rate it, but it is my place as a gamer to inform everyone else about what they're looking at. My opinion is not law, it is just what I think of this game. I might get this game, it looks like it will satisfy till the next FPS hit is released.
Does anyone know if you can play online and have co-op in this crazzzzzzy looking game. If yes this game could be the best shooter ever. Yes better then halo, resistance 1and 2, bioshock, fallout and any other shooter to date.
I'll answer few questions I saw below. I'm currently multiplayer playing the beta. As far as i've played its first person unless you in overdrive mode. Dropping is awesome. You can actually land on and kill people turrets also. You do have a regenerative shield. Buts its well balanced. It takes a long while before it fully recharges. So you cant just go hide for a sec or two and expect it to be full again like Halo. I would describe what I've played as a mix of Halo, Tribes and Metriod. Definitely not a crappy clone game. JayQproductions: "Halo clone with jetpacks......no thanks." Are you kidding? Freaken jet packs make every thing better. You get what Tribes gamers have been ranting about for years. "Freedom of Movement." well.. kinda. The jet packs in section 8 aren't as powerful as tribes but they really help out the game play a ton.
I have a feeling this game is going to be fantastic. I cannot wait for this game to come out. Screw it if it looks "generic" or not (I really don't think it does) as long as it is fun to play, I could care less.
@prtossdragoon nah its a fps, but when you run/dash it goes into 3rd. Alot of new features for FPS's. No more spawn camping XD Loadout changes on demand XD and of course it feels like Tribes. One of the best PC games ever! This is going to be badass!
um....i think the concept of the game is to have it the players way.like getting what gun you want go where you want to go and spawning in safer places.....probably gonna be great for me but bad for people who like it the classic way
I like the dropping in idea... but the landing just seems to be REALLY awkward... you're burning in, and suddenly, you land, but there's no crater! Plus as people have mentioned, the jump pack makes the game a bit cheap.
Never been a game like this before, can never tell if its good or not, theres a chance it might suck, but theres a bigger chance that this will be a Badass exclusive!!!
Looks fun but we will have to see how it handles in person. I agree Online is definitely a make or break situation these days
this game looks promising... they could fix a few probs that people are stating... institute hardcore mode... most games now have it... the jet pack should be limited...(fuel- with slow refill) just so its not like halo were half the battle is like a bunny rabbit on the moon... the best thing i like about this game is the spawning... reminds me of starship troopers. and gets rid of spawn killing... lets hope they really do a good job on multiplayer, because honestly thats what SAVES a game... its why cod is so popular
I'm tired of all the futuristic robot games that take place in the future. What's wrong with the present?
well the game loks great I don;t like jets and I won't use them ......waiting a review and more gameplay
I do like the idea of "burn in" and "squad spawn". To many times have i got annoyed at games spawning me into a group of enemy players......cough...uhem...halo...cough..cough! Apart from that though the game itself doesn't look all that. Jet packs will ruin this i think.
Very nice concept but I agree totally with comments already posted here. It takes far too long to kill someone. This is gonna really spoil a very promising game. Also I do not find the idea of excessive strafing and jump jet packing that fun. Seems to take around 30 seconds of sustained fire to actually kill. Not cool. When you nail someone you want quick gratification. Apart from this major flaw the idea of customization and spawning is great. The game does look superb on the eyes. I will have to wait for review and demo before being tempted by this one.
I agree with the post earlier: In this whole trailer no-one died. This happens too much in action games. If I shoot someone I want them to die, not have to fire for five seconds with the crosshair on their head. There will end up being a LOT of jumping and circle-strafing in this game, which can be VERY annoying.
I noticed that not a single time did an enemy die in that trailer. Probably because they would run out of time before someone actually did die.
Yeah I just belatedly found out the game is rated T instead of M. Not really sure how they're going to handle that, although I have to admit the game looks good. Heck, blasting things in power armor is ALWAYS cool. The PA in the game reminds me of the Glitterboy from Rifts. If it's even a quarter as cool as that, they've got my attention.
Okay I had my pre-order on Wolfenstein and after i saw this I've changed my mine. They are really making new ideas and re-berthing old stuff. Like you don't see many jet packs anymore, it's not new but it's sweet. I also think the spawn is smart and cool and the squad spawn is also gonna make this a more team based multi-player, which in my opinion is also sweet.
lol they are way overhyping it. just listen to what they say about carrying a shotgun and a sniper.... like thats never been done. Or how the game is "fresh" because theres new strategies involved??? lol and the jetpack is the least of the new features.... its been done before! 8 years ago! TRIBES!!
This vid shows me I made a great choice in pre-ordering, only problem is damage output, and if there will be Co-op Hoping:)
This game totally rocks if you like the Battlefield series, Tribes, and Unreal you will love this game. It pulls the best parts of those franchisees together into a new and fresh FPS. This game is totally awesome!
The "T" rating sorta makes me shy away. I've never played a FPS game without an "M" rating that has been enjoyable. T = no violence, no language (which isn't neccessary but ussually makes a game more immersive and realistic). I hope that this game turns out good...cause I sorta want a new IP to get into...but we'll have to wait and see!
Look a TON better than the first gameplay trailer, that was showing the multiplayer. The battles looked dull, and the weapons uninteresting. But every trailer released just continues to look better than the last.
This game keeps impressing me. I am still debating about buying it or not. It looks really fun. I just hope they put alot into the campaign also. I hate when games only focus on the multiplayer. I mean the multipalyer is great but alot of people want a good solo or co-op experience.
Looking promising, as close to a spiritual successor to Tribes as we are going to get for the moment.
