It looks like there are missing some animations between the different moves.. And the slow-mo kills look annoying.. Hope this is gonna be better than I expect..

The graphics are getting better, but everything else feels "budget." They are trying too hard to make this game look epic - the chorus soundtrack, the slow-mo kills, the walking towards camera shots...but it just doesn't work (not when AC2 and such games are doing a much better job). Mr. Art Director: Take a different approach. You guys have nice models and environments so show those off instead. And definitely re-do those animations...there is still time!

I agree animation is not up to the mark. It looks like Dragon Age 2 to me. :)

I'm with Gelugon_baat; the animation needs serious attention!

Looks fun, definitely gonna have to add it to my follow list as I'm sure this'll probably be the only publicity this game receives

Yeah, I don't think this one will do too well... I could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time!

Looks good to me, vastly improved from the first footage i saw. For those of you who says it look horrendous...... it does not differ to much from Fable 3 to me...

I would say, The Cursed Crusade will be the way to go.

enemies just waiting for you to kill them, repetitive 3 button combo, stiff animations, weird looking characters.. well, lets hope the story is enough to carry this game through..

If ppl find this game already bad even before its out and properly reviewed is kinda sad realy, okay i agree the screens of "Cursed Crusade" def look better but still it mabye fun to play with your on-line friends or just with a buddy coming over. Oh one last thing i read ppl compare this with AC, don,t its not about an assassin but about two templars and no they not related in any way to Enzio lol! Last but not least i not have to remind you all there def worser games out there compared to graphics and animations. As for me i def give this game a go and its nice to break the wait time untill Cursed Crusade comes out.

The animations remind me of two worlds, but at least the blocks register.

What's with the bad guys creeping along behind while the fighting is going on (at :29 for example and throughout the rest of the clip)?

This looks so much like Rise of The Argonauts in terms of graphics and gameplay. Made by Kalypso the same company to....not something worth spending 63 dollars on.

Looks horrible...I haven't seen a single good thing in that video (starting with Roland's shoulders) and yes, punksterdaddy might be the only one wanting to play this game, it's the biggest piece of crap since.... I don't know...just can't remember... For sure firm candidate to worst game of 2011.
