Pandemic! That explains a lot. Those guys are crazy. For a game I wouldn't normally be interested in... it looks damn good.

@GamerBaboo It isnt released on the 8th in some places I am getting mine tommorow on the 4th. and I am sure you can think of other ways people play games before they are released, not every shop sells legally, there is a local shop near where I live that sometimes releases games a few days early.

@ in_Out That really is tempting, since you played it for an hour or two , even though the game is due out for release on Dec 8 .

Played the game for an hour or two...It really was faaarrr above my expectation!!! GTA style open world + Assassins Creed (for climbing and suspicious-thing) and Sin City color/ art Style! Worth every penny!! It's a 9 for me!!

@gayguy it's schindler's list. get your facts straight. This game actually looks promising.. i'm looking forward to seeing what reviews it gets.. and curious if it has any multiplayer..

It's funny how some people are complaining about the realism of this WWII game. First of all, there were no zeppelins in Paris. Ever. Not before, during, or after the occupation. Also, it's...well, this might shock some people...but it's a VIDEO GAME. NOT A PRIMARY SOURCE TO USE FOR YOUR WWII ESSAY. It is created for entertainment, and it looks like it will entertain well.

looks like shiedler's list but game vers. I like the art style...but I feel im going to get sick of it fast.

(Doesn't look very realistic to me. As I watched on several occasions I thought, "Why hasn't that Nazi whipped out a gun and shot the holy crap out of the main character?" Seems like if you hopped out of a car and started swinging at a group of Nazis, at least one would pull out a gun and shoot you. Instead it looks like they give you a chance to go fistacuffs with them. Also, a zepplin providing a spotlight on the rooftop? Was there a Nazi that radioed up and said, "Hey the guy that caused the explosion is on the roof, use all of your zepplin mobility and keep a spotlight on him while we wait too long before we start shooting." The boobs and a$$ in the club look nice though. Maybe it'll sell to guys who want to spank it to a video game. I'll pass on this until there's a more realistic WWII Assassin's Creed clone comes out...this isn't it.) Sir I have a question to u . Do u think AC II is very realistic ? a man is climbing the wall more swiftly than any lizard in this planet. killing 10 ppl simultaneously an those poor guards are hitting him 1 by 1 as somebody ordered them "dont hit the hero all together". Sir not a single action-adv or rpg game is realistic in my opinion. Yah AC 1 and 2 both are great games but nowhere close to realism :)

ac2+mgs4+wolfenstein=this This looks okay, but I don't feel like I'm seeing anything new to get excited about the fighting looks awful, the climbing looks underdone in comparison to ac or infamous, and the noteriety has to be handled well (like ac2) or it could be a tiresome game of hide and keep hiding like ac1 If you buy this and don't buy assassin's creed 2, you're crazy

goo game but im not interested in it ,, its like taking ideas from other games

Fededyret

This game looks pretty nice, graphics looks great ( love the grey color they have given the game ) gameplay looks okay (a little worried about the crawling on buildings, don't hope it's gonna be like assassin's creed. It's cool he can climb, but he mustn't feel to much at home at it. ) No idea about the storyline but so fare it sounds great, so i think this is definitely gonna be worth a closer look

its nice to see something a little different yet keeping some qualities similar in other games being released all the time, i m getting bored of it. definetly a 20 quidder but worth a look.

The visuals in this game looks great and i hope gameplay and storyline will also make up to it....

Alex_09

Yeah I agree with Techspert the visuals are great but the animations look bad in my opinion. I keep reading the previews and they always say the animations are good but the fighting I'm seeing is just terrible. And the climbing looks really messed too, it's definitely not on par with assassin's creed's movements. I hope it turns out well, but right now it looks like I'm only renting it.

Another mediocre GTA clone

this looks...really stupid. not the plot or graphics or anything, just the actual gameplay. it does have some interesting ideas (if not directly copied from assassins creed), and I like the artistic concept of restoring the color to the opressed sections of the city. definately not gonna buy though, gameplay is everything in a game, and nothing can make up for that.

Reality in video games is overrated. I mean, do you really need a game about what it's like living in your mom's basement?

oo dammit now why they gotta show the extra features (perks etc) plus its a freeroaming game so thats a BIG PLUS ok now I have to buy the game :)

I Agree with Chooch-A-Doo about the unrealism. Did you saw Sean slide off that rope with his bare hands? That must have hurt!

its mercs 2- in paris, i hated that game with a passion (so much hype and great scores yet it was a totla let down that lasted a few days in my collection) so il be steering clear of this steaming pile of s**t!

Drkr_Zen
Drkr_Zen

It looks like a rental... reminds me of Mercs 2, as far as gunplay goes, and that's not a good thing. Plus, its being done by Pandemic - most games they develop are mediocre, at best.

I think this game might be ok, I will rent it I think, I have an odd feeling it might be really good,

@ikill4fun2: Looks are most of the time decieving, Prototype had a lot of hype out of it but it didn't reach to the standard people expected. Also you don't base games on graphics if that's what you are suggesintg =P

ikill4fun2
ikill4fun2

The game looks terrible imo, nothing we have not seen before and the graphics put simply are not that good, and to top it all off its Pandemic teaming up with EA its bound to fail.

Like the style, like the fact that they use Koop as soundtrack. But that explosion looked like digital design from the middle ages. Fantastically amateuristic :D
