TRG plays through the Fuse Demo a few times and finds a game loaded with potential. Has Insomniac found the holy grail for the buddy shooter?
Yea i played the Demo and its definately loaded with Potential ! kinda reminded me of R2
What? The demo was absolutely terrible. I didn't feel like I was playing an Insomniac game, I felt like a was playing EA's version of an Insomniac game.
When I played it it definitely felt like insomniac, I reckon they should have used a better colour palette
felt like a very weak Vanquish clone to me.
I just didn't like the game. It's like Gears but not exactly like it. Just feels generic to me.
Thats how I felt. Not bad but it just felt completely generic.
I agree it reminded me a lot like gears just much much more unpolished and rougher. Still I found it fun.
I had high hopes for this game. I played the demo and I was expecting something a little more tactical. This thing is 100% run and gun. The latter level when you are fighting those mecha, was straight out of Vanquish. I cant see, even with human players how you can set up any kind of co-op attacks. I was running for my life most of the time, let alone a moment to think about what strategy I was going to use and lets face it, that what the game is taunting itself as. The AI, is a laughing joke. They do try their best to heal you, but other than that, I didn't see any "tactics" other than when I used my implosion gun, out of somewhere a bullet would come and hurt the same enemy. As a pure shooter, its generic as it comes. As a tactical shooter (arcade) shooter, it crap. So where exactly does this title fit? Don't know, I'll get it when its like 15 dollars or less. (Unless what we played is NOTHING compared to the actual game)
dam Insomniac , Fuse looks like a generic mess
Enjoyed the demo very much, looking forward to the game, hopefully the fun carries over to the retail release.
FUSE is generic as all get out, but it's a good, high-quality generic
Man, this game sucks so bad. I'm really disappointed with Insomniac.
What sucks about it other than the generic quality it has?
It's a bad game, generic as hell, poor gameplay, it's not even close to Gears of War.
I can't believe the guy who wrote Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time wrote this slop. It's filled with macho sayings from 80's action flicks, but not the good stuff, like Blood Dragon. The mechanics are solid, but the enemies just come in droves. It's essentially all the worst parts of Lost Planet 2. :/
To be fair to EA, Insomniac has been terrible this whole gen.
A Crack in Time is the best Ratchet and Clank game in the entire series (in my opinion). And Resistance was pretty fun. But, I feel that they dropped the ball with this game.
Resistance 1 and 3 are excellent shooters.
The demo shows a generic game, yes, but the article is about its potential. I am skeptical, myself, over whether or not this game distinguishes itself from the rest of the genre but am eager to find out.
