@VampiriLestat All those little details that help me forget I'm in a virtual world are important to me. And progress has been slow lately. When a game does have that level of attention to detail, it tells me that the developers really cared about immersion. For games that have a role-playing aspect, I like to forget I'm playing a game, and just live the experience. Of course, chances are that I'll pick up The Witcher 2 or Fable 3 before I go for this one, or maybe just wait for Dungeon Siege 3.

@Targzissian boy, don't you know what makes a good game!

this game is released the same day as the witcher 2 and fable 3...who the f@ck is gonna buy this? i mean it's not that it doesn't look like fun, but it seems like a really bad move to release it the same day as those much anticipated rpgs...

Kind of looks like assasin's creed mixed with Kingdom under Fire's combat... Dunno.. might be cool, might not. hard to tell with all the character model clipping and the FPS lag..

Okay so the action looks sort of fun, but is there a good story? *sigh* Same old story.

@Kriminalac They said it was gonna be a AC ripoff cause of the templars. Whats funny is that these gamers appearantly never had history lessons at school cause the Templars where a real order in the medieval times. Infact the templar order where the inventors of what you know today as the bank where you store your money. For those who don't believe Templars excisted or just want to know more about them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Templar The wikipage.

Cool I will give it a shoot.Combat is cool like you guys said and graphics are at the level :D .When this game was announced every one said that this will be AC rip-of but I dont think they sing the same song now :D .

But does the vegetation rustle when you walk through it? Nothing like unresponsive "phantom" bushes to kill that sense of immersion. And I think the combat animations could be a little smoother in spots.

Combat looks pretty good, but I'm not expecting much from this game. Just another action game, nothing out of the ordinary. I'll check it out when it's released thou`.

this is interesting.... i found the cape distracting when it seemed to go through other textures.

These guys should employ the people who made Mount and Blade as well as some Paradox interactive crew.. the game would be INSAAANE for fanboys as well as newcomers in these genres. Lets not forget this is aimed at people who like medieval combat and culture based on templars.. THIS IS NOT AC!!! :) looks good btw

@ Crash WL Indeed i noticed the changes in gameplay and graphics, def look sooo much better now, this is def a buy for me! Mostly because i was waiting for this a long time. Must admit this year is sure a good year for ppl who like knights games lol, first The First Templar then a bit later Cursed Crusade. "Men sharpen your swords we going into battle!" hahaha

Looks sweet, I'll get it on day 1. It sure looks a lot more polished than before, Haenimont kept their word (I asked them on the TFT Facebook page and they said they'll improve a lot, what we saw was a very early build) and they got my respect!

Not totaly sure but release date in Europe is set for the 9th of May. I must admit this gameplay video already looks so much better then those before. Seems they spend the time to polished it a bit more
