Wow this game is going to suck big time....

It tries to copy Halo- FAIL

The graphics suck - FAIL

The menu screens are impossible to understand - FAIL

The aiming sucks and the guns are mediocre - FAIL

Did anyone actually enjoy the demo, apart from the respawning feature where you're falling from the sky (it gets annoying after a while)

It's not trying to copy Halo, it's actually more in the sense of Tribes or even to an extent Planetside. The graphics honestly weren't that bad. They weren't epic, but they weren't terrible. I'm not 100% sure how you didn't understand the menus but they made perfect sense to me. The aiming has a lock on feature which you're supposed to utilize and there are devices and add ons that help you with that feature. The guns aren't that bad actually, pretty basic but then again, it is a demo. I enjoyed it, not sure if I'll get the game because there's so much other stuff coming out, but the demo wasn't bad and if it was a slow season for games, I'd consider picking this up. I still might.

The in game menu screens are ugly, poorly written and confusing....plus the fact that theres no tutorial doesnt help either... Just not my type of game, too many things to customize or buy, and too little focus on the action and making the game fun

i think you fail. im havin a good time playing it. it didnt copy halo at all. just about zero similarities. menu is easy to understand if you take two seconds to try to learn it. aiming is fine once you get a feel for it. graphics arent amazing, but dont suck. and burning in never gets annoying.

Zero similarities? The video at the beginning, strapping in the ship, the ship looks almost exactly the same as the Halo ship...comon now, you cant go as far as say theres no similarities to Halo cause you'd just be lying to yourself... Menu is too cluttered and just plain UGLY Graphics are ok I guess, just nothing a game in 2009 should have....looks like a game that came out at launch How does burning in not get annoying? It's a waste of time, I wanna get back to the action ASAP, and not just watch myself falling from the sky for an hour

if you want to go running into a game without thinking, go play call of duty. idk what you want the menu to look like if you think its ugly? im sorry its not pretty. but its effective and easy to use. and if that means its similar to halo, than any space ship is similar to halo. any mech suit is similar to halo.

I thought it was pretty good. to argue your points: 1. Its far different from Halo. There are no aliens, there is jetpacks, there is super speed, the map so far is not linear. You can call drop in vehicles and turrets it's base defense. 2.graphics are decent. Even World of Warcraft proved that you don't need decent graphics to make an epic game. Whats with you young gamers and your graphics? 3. The menu is fine, it's not hard to navigate, thats like saying a shoe lace is hard to tie. 4. Aiming works for me, point shoot and kill, the only thing I don't like is that the guns are too weak, espeically the rocket launcher.

I agree with not liking the demo... Only because I see what the game is trying to do and I believe it can be a lot of fun. The problem with the game is it feels very unfinished. Now before you start spewing about how this is a demo, I understand that. But in all reality, it seemed like the basic concepts were put in place, and the rest is still in progress. The basics was fun, it just needs to be fine tuned, prettied up, and made smoother before they should release the game. I believe if they spend another, probably 4-6 months of hard polishing and fine tuning, they can make a REALLY good game here.

That's what I got out of the demo.

As to what they need to polish? The shooting felt bad, I didn't really understand everything (I did only put about 15-20mins into it though), the graphics were okay, but I'm no graphics whore. Simply the aiming felt off for some reason, like it was too rigid, if that makes sense.

You forgot-takes 2 clips to kill someone. I hated the demo. Only thing i liked was the jetpack, but that took to long to reload, and the super run. The MP was just confusing with all the stupid mission crap.

I tried to play it but it wouldn't connect to a game. Kept saying something about the server not responding.. I turned it off and deleted it from my hard drive. I won't be giving it another chance.

I was going to get this game because it looked pretty neat, the fact that it seemed akin to Halo is what turned me on to it. I was super dissapointed with the demo. I'm going to wait for Left 4 Dead 2, Modern Warfare 2, and Lost Planet 2. I hated the original Lost Planet, but the demo for LP2 is AWESOME!

It was terrible. I couldn't find a single online match, so I settled for a bot match. First thing that bothered me were the respawns: you have to watch your character get dumped from the sky every time you respawn (takes about 10 seconds each time). Second, the graphics make Halo1 look gorgeous. Third, the action is lame, it takes too long to kill anything and the weapons sound good but lack punch. I liked the jetpack and the sprint mode, though. Overall, this looks like another bad game.

deadly_shuriken

This post - FAIL :P

But in all seriousness:

It DOESN'T copy Halo - Just because someone has a high-tech suit and helmet on doesn't mean that it's a Master Chief wannabe.

The graphics are nowhere near the 'suck' level.

The menu screens are actually very easy to understand, you just gave one look at them and decided not to actually READ what was there.

Aiming? How does the aiming suck? Point and shoot. Just like any other shooter.

This game should have been something near to the opening cinematic. Then it would have been awesome.

Sprinting was fun and dropping in was good but that was it.

It's alright but the walking speed is simply to slow to make close quarters combat any fun. Everything else was in the fine to good range but the walking speed just kinda kills it.
