to be honest i thought the demo gameplay was kind of shallow and boring.
Irishguy95  +   790d ago
I think the demo is one of the best games i've played in a while.

One thing that annoys me though, I'd really love to see my K/D ratio. I've been get between 15-25 Kills to just a few(1-5) deaths and sometimes(rarely) no deaths at all. I'm surprised how balanced the classes are as well, as I kick bawls with all of them, I'm worst with the tank though. Was surprised how good the destroyer one was when I started using it

I also think the Health Regen pickl up should be removed. I feel like i'm cheating when using it, but I have to make sure the other team don't get it because who ever gets it is basically invincible for a short period if they are skilled enough to get out of the line of fire for a few seconds. You can take on a whole team though with that on

not the best game, but really fun. Hopefully they make Deadpool game even better. I have never enjoyed a Transformers game so much. I will definitely buy the game.

Its one of those games were how deepness of the game is soley defined on how good you are at it.

@Irishguy95

exactly, 95% of people who i see playing the demo jsut run around and dont understand or bother to learn the class differences and what type of gameplay style they are atuned for.

The complexity of the combat in this game is more than any other shooter out there at the minute, it has some pretty inventive weapons aswell.

Its one of the most tactical & skill based shooters to come out this year and people say its shallow when they go off and play the same tired old modern day war games in repetition.

Could be I suppose, for people that aren't good at it they won't realize the intelligent attack patterns involved in things. Most people I seem to face just don't have any pattern, they run around shooting at things until they die, without any thought into their escape if they mess up, first assault/Stealth and when they should transform.

For example, when using the car, you can make it seem like you are running away, they will follow you, you will be invisible and get the upper hand straight away/ No one seems to use the L2 button either which is extremely useful in throwing an enemies aiming completely off you and confusing them(Jump, L2 over their heads while transforming/Good retreat)

Then their is the jet, L2 in any direction while transforming, fly out of a window and come back in a different door or window/ Very simple and effective way to get a free hit on enemies. With the tank, simply back off and wait to see if they follow you into a room etc, if they do, use sword/annihilate. The destroying has it's shield which you can use to retreat by turning it on and off, along with it's cannons

I feel the combat in this game is all about your movements anyway, just moving in an unpredictable way and using a little tactics to throw your enemy off is what it's about. It keeps getting compared to 3rd person shooters like Gears of war and stuff and complaints about it's lack of a 'snap too' cover system. It plays nothing like those though due to the vehicle things and fluidity of movement in it

This is N4G
Don't you know It's mandatory that title needs to have a quote taken out of context and with a little spin?

Its one of the only high health skill based games to come out this year, finally a shooter than doesnt give instant gratification one shot kills to any moron who can pray and spray (BF3).

Instead you require a good steady aim and good movement making good use of the dodge function and most important your class specific abilities and you have to actually learn the ins and outs of the weapons. I can see why people who are pretty bad at games all round are really not going to like it.

There isnt enough completely arcade shooters anymore, everything is halfway between realism and arcade.

There is nothing going here that even got my d!ck wet.

"There is nothing going here that even got my d!ck wet."

What does that even mean???

How old are you 2?
MidnytRain  +   787d ago
Yes, the smartest two-year-old you've ever met. That aside, I'm familiar with your expression, but how you use it confuses me. Sorry.
