Fuse is more generic than a licensed game, it's basically a re-skinned Gears of War.

They know that; making a generic TPS is just CHEAPER than doing a licensed game.

Right, EA? Yeah, you! The guy crossing out the gun names!

Better than Judgment. They should have left it in the Overstrike vein.

yaz2881924d ago

just knowing that its Insomniac + the 3 years development .. those were enough for me to give it a chance.

I hate that people are already judging this game and they didn't play it yet. I actually just played the demo and happy to tell that its actually super fun.. and that is what matter in the end. you should give it a try really.

I really hated it when they first announced it. first was the shock that they have changed the art style and then was the coop shit genric shooter thing. however after seeing some demos later I only had to try it to finally say this .. its AWESOME!

To be honest, it was kind of generic. Everything was pretty standard.

There was a lot less shooting in the Overstrike trailer and more hand-to-hand. They described it as a Third-person Action game. Not a cover based nonstop third-person shooter like what it was become.

They tried giving the excuse that the art style and more comical direction of the game wouldn't work with the gameplay and weapons.
Which I call TOTAL BULL because Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands are cartoony and M Rated.

Fuse sucks 3 min into demo it felt like a arcade version of gears

I honestly thought it was solid. Surprised me, in fact the game is heavily Co-op drop in and drop out teamwork based gameplay.

The weapons are pretty cool and unique to each character. And you can combine shots with team mates for big multiplier damage.

Its Mass Effect MP meets Borderlands in a way. Without BL's annoying clone characters. One per character with this game.

I'll probably pick it up just to play with friends. There hasn't been a Co-op based third person shooter like Fuse so far COD's old and boring so might as well pick this up to play with a party of 4 friends or just a party of randoms.

I can tell you right now the story will probably be generic and unispiring, but from the demo, the gameplay is solid fun. Might as well try it out.

I actually liked the gameplay, but (Naya aside) hated the characters and their special abilities.

Overstrike humor was better and seemed like a better game also.

ifritAlkhemyst1924d ago

Insominiac is a bit like Rare imo. They had an entire gen where they made these novel platformers. After that they started pumping out generic shooters and uninspired pastiches of their former platformers.

HyperBear1924d ago

I think Randy Pitchford should have a guy-to-guy chat with Ted Price....Show him the way Ted!

Williamson1924d ago

So they would rather sell there souls to EA? They showed great creativity with spyro and R&C but nothing about fuse shows that.

abc12331924d ago

Watch the first Overstrike trailer, that looked much more impressive and more in-line with Insomniac.

Dirtnapstor1924d ago

I think Insomniac had a good thing going with Overstrike. It got a lot of popular rise and then EA shook its finger towards the change. I don't believe for a second the transition to FUSE was an Insomniac decision.
I'm hoping they don't throw out the Overstrike style...use it for a PS4 IP.
