Spark, the developer of Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, has responded on their blog to player feedback on the Xbox 360 demo.
but they crapped all over this game and did not deliver in any way.........no extra amount of tweaks and adjustments can fix this broken game..... ...... ......"The JOEY has Spoken"
"The JOHN RICO has spoken". On nothing
what did u guys think of this? bad/mediocre/good? personally rather than bad i thought it was mediocre, maybe worth a rental for the story if anything
I'd have to agree. It's not a awful game. it's a rent for me at best, but i do like to see devs reach out to the masses and at least address customer concerns if anything it shows they are listening. hopefully the final version will infact be better than the demo.
Not tried it but looks like a good idea, they have to much competition esc of cod4 so cant see this doing to well. Why do they release demos that they no people are going to slate, maybe microsoft push these dev to release early?
This game felt like either a bad first generation 360 title or a bad last generation PS2/XBox title, both gameplay-wise and graphics-wise.
It's a shame, because I love "alternate history" stuff.
the demo was sooo sh!t, why do they even bother making a game like this in 1st place
I wanted to like this game, I was looking forward to it but it just plain sucks......BAD. It looks like a N64 game and plays like it has to take a dump and it's looking for the toilet, avoid this at all costs.
well it sucks for them
kinda interesting but i agree with Silleak about the "bad last generation PS2/XBox title", the game looks terrible comparing with other games in the market.
Hopefully they aren't just lying about spending months to polish out the game and change some problems. Wasn't even going to bother with this game but after reading this article I think it's worth at the very least a rent.
The problem here is that no matter how great the final game ends up (or not) a DEMO is supposed to sell the game, entice people in, and ultimately sell more copies. If a demo is bad, no amount of dev blogging and promises is going to change the opinion of a gamer who thought it sucked.
The Story is what really got my attention and it's sad to see how the game ended up.
If you know it's gonna suck. Obviously, they need to get some feedback, but if the demo was two months ago, and the code was in such horrible shape, then they should have held onto it or released the demo later in the coding process. All I've heard is how bad this is, being compared to Hour of Victory, which "won" many Worst Game of the Year awards for 2007. Not the kind of company you want to be in.
Ultimately, the demo seems to have done more harm than good. Even if the final product is decent, how many of us are simply not going to give it a second thought after playing a poor demo?
but it definately doesn't scream "Buy me now!".
Goes to show that developers really need to take Demo's more seriously. They need to make it as perfect as possible. They need to realize that demo's can make or break they're game.
Yeah I really really wanted this game to be good because the concept is great. But aside from decent scripted stuff it played like a mediocre early PS2 game. Just unacceptable. Should've concentrated on one system...
Games like this make me call in to question $60 price tags on games when they are this "sh!ty". I can understand Mitch from FASA getting pissed because Shadowrun is a good game with quality gamplay but does fall short on the content side so it should have beed a $30 title. This game doesn't fall in to that catigory, no matter the amount of content they put in cant save this game, it's just a turd on any system.
I thought the demo was awful.
Looks and plays like an N64 era game.
Could quite possible be the worst looking/feeling FPS on 360 if it doesnt improves dramatically before release.
Hour of Victory ...that is by far the worst we have seen in regards to demo's imo. Absolutely made me THANK GOD for Xbox Live giving us sooo many demo's. Cause I probably would have blown good money on a game that totally blew!
But I dont think its a bad game. I have played worse sadly. Anyway, I may give it a rent at some point and from there see if its worth buying...
On a side note... How hard must it be as one of these developers who is working on the game to see so many people lashing out. And not just lashing out at the game, but getting pretty brutal towards the people working on the game. I just would hate to be in one of their shoes right about now.
i cant say i was ever eXCITED TO SEE THE GAME but i expected a lot more than what was delivered in the demo. i have played it a few times now and got used to the controls and gave it a chance but nothing was there of interest other than the story. my mony is going elsewhere! i feel bad hating on it so much but realistically they need to make it a bargain priced game and they will probably sell more copies than otherwise. the realness!
