Get a sneak peek at the first 15 minutes of Dark Sector exclusively from G4.
This is from the PS3 version not the Xbox 360.
Was really on the fence about this one but the game play look solid. It runs almost flawlessly. Will try this out.
It's looks like Re4 and gears of war. Good combo.
I hope the player has it on "easy" because the enemy AI is among the worst I've seen from this generation of games. How many headshots did the guy behind the truck near the end soak up without moving before he finally died? I'll pass, thanks.
this game wreaks of coolness. A good rating will separate it from the rental or purchase titles. not a bad looking game at all. I am sure they would be showing the ps3 version at this point.
I have been pretty hard on this game but it doesn't look and play bad at all. hmm
Still gonna need a demo.
Tru dat. Hope we get it next week.
that this is the ps3 version the button keys it shows are from playstation change the title its the first 15min of ps3 version anyway i think i may buy this
Thanks for correcting me. I have added it as an update.
The action button (Sprint, roll and taking cover) doesn't play very fluid and the transition from sprint to taking cover might cause some issues, but nonetheless the looks awesome.
Could somebody explain me how to enter the date of birth ? I am from Italy and I dont unterstand it.... I enter 02.02.1988 and they say Error in Date Format ?
Sorry for doublepost.... but it works now = )
02/02/1988 Looks very entertaining. They did good with the movie feel. It has Uncharted's gameplay mechanics but lacks it's Animations and it seems that was played on easy cause the AI seemed a little toned down. So I'm interested in seeing how they truely behave on normal difficulty and higher. Very good work from the canadian developers, I'll definitly have to give it a go, rental maybe but looks like a worthy buy.
Yeah Agreed. I am soo amazed at how well it runs. I was skeptical at first but not anymore.
probably a rent for me it looks fun and the glaive is mega-cool, but there are so many other games to BUY btw, Capcom should really sue Digital Extremes- if you get what i mean cookies and prizes for anyone who can guess what im talking about
but it's also a mix of Uncharted and Gears of War. Personally i cant wait for this game i've got it pre ordered, and it runs and plays so smoothly, DE did a great job with this game. I wasn't skeptical but was just waiting for a demo to cement my purchase but i guess this will have to do.
And people say Gears has no color lol, (Vibrant setting actually makes it look 10x better)
That is a sad attempt at trolling, my friend. It is obvious that the black and white is chosen as a style to help show that all this is taking place in that past. The main portion will be in color, dumbass. Now, that said, this game looks way better than I thought it would!! It seems that they took all the right cinematic cues from Gears, and threw things up a couple notches! Anyone know if this is proprietary engine. or is it UE3? I may just pick this up, it seems really cool. Neat: thnx for the info. Heyheyhey
according to PSM3, this is the best looking console game yet not sure about UE3 though and yeah the game starts out black and white to reflect the characters feelings, but then gains colour
Yeah right after you get infected the game gets doused with colour, they showed the first 2 stages in previous videos.
"Utilizing the Evolution Engine, proprietary next-gen technology developed by Digital Extremes, Dark Sector is an all-new and original action-thriller designed exclusively for next-generation consoles." http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
Ahh, that clears it up, thanks! Here, bubbles.
text, look , animations =0 its crazy!
This really wasn't even on my radar before but I like what I see here! Does anyone else notice anything in commom with the some of the sounds (gunfire, deaths, grenades) and KILLZONE 1? 8D Think I might look into this one a little closer.
Yeah, I kind of got that a bit (c4 charge placing) sound etc. This actually looks pretty awesome, huh! I'm also pretty damn impressed that this is the PS3 version of something that had to have started life on 360 (one of original next-gen games and all that). I wonder if they went the multi-teams route we have been seeing lately, if so, definately=winning formula! Way too many good games though, coming out in '08. Yikes!
Quite honestly there's so many things coming up (release-wise) that I'm already having to adjust my calendar and pocketbook to fit in all of the action when it arrives. Then something like this comes along (to me) out of the blue sky. Today is a pretty good day! 8D I'm so stoked for this gaming year - you just can't imagine. 8D
True dat! when I first saw the game, I was all excited 8sci-fi setting, crazy abilities, (then amazing graphics) after I heard that all that had been scrapped, I gave up on this. Now, all of a sudden, it flew out from no where!! Definitely on my radar!
Will definitely be a day one purchase for me, looking very good.
finally some decent russian voice acting i was getting kinda tired of seeing my great language butchered by dodgy american voice actors
Can't wait to play it.
They aped RE4 SO MUCH, which ironically enough is why I want it. Also I hope Hayden's evolution does exactly just that, evolve. I remember the devs saying that you'll gain new abilities as the infection takes over your body, I can't wait to see what endgame Hayden looks like.
Interesting, I didn't know about that evolving over time bit!
not tryin to be a fanboy im just tellin you the ps3 was the lead platform for this game heres the link. http://www.ps3fanboy.com/20... i probely get the ps3 version because of the uncompressed sound you get because of the space available on the blu-ray disk no compression YESSSSSSSSS
Nothing great. AI looks slightly improved version of KZ2s. Whats with black&white screen. I thought my monitor had a problem. Jeez will not like to play whole level in black and white. Pass or a rental
After reading the review in PSM3 it says that the game kicks off in black and white to resemble the lead characters feelings at the time, apparently it becomes clear why they chose to do this later in the game, they also say that graphically it's up there with Uncharted, marked down for having a poor story and too many dark levels, personally i think it looks stunning and will get it on April 4th.
you must want KZ2 bad, the story has nothing to do with it and no one mentioned it at all. Closet PS3 fans make me laugh. Just get the MGS4 PS3 and call it a day buddy, you sound pathetic.
the cover system doesnt seem as fluid as gears and doesnt look responsive. in like the 1st minute of the video they show him running into a wall trying to get behind cover. looks awesome but theres those bugs that need to be taken care of. and theres no blindfire? hes always popping out when hes shooting. even tho theres some flaws in it i might pick this one up. looks interesting enough for me.
i remember this was one of the first next gen titles announced. DE pulled it back and took there time with it. Now we might have a sleeper hit for 2008.!
Unreal Engine is overrated beyond belief
can u please provide proof this game is using UE3? last time i checked this game is using an engine they built called the sector engine
My bad it's the Evolution Engine that dark sector runs. Unreal Engine is still overrated.
agreed. im not a big fan of UE3 and its pop-ups either
Then I guess you won't be playing some of the biggest games this gen since you think UE3 is so overrated. I guess you can just sell your copies of UT3, Gears, Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Rainbow 1&2.
I dont own any of those games you listed, but i do plan on buying Bioshock whenever i get a xbox 360.
never said i didnt like the games, in fact i have all those except bioshock, r6v2 is coming in the mail. i like the games, i just dont like the tech glitches the engine has.
I thought its called "Evolution Engine". AN Engine made by the developers ?
it was called the sector engine, if youve seen the very first trailer of the game. then it got renamed to evolution engine
Yeah, at least its not UT 3 Engine ;) and it still looks awesome, in my opinion.
This game looks good and I'll be playing it this week, but while watching that all I could think of was "Gears Gears Gears".
this looks pretty good and it's the PS3 version! Had been waiting to see it running on the PS3 and it's relieved some of my fears about it. a must buy.
I can't decide between purchasing this or Condemned 2. But I like the fact that they were ok with showing off a PS3 version. Not many developers are taking the chance doing that because they're putting out sh]tty ports. The cinematics look to have a feel of Resident Evil 4
ive been waiting for a game like this for a long time.ive been playing ARMY OF 2 and this looks like it will play kind of the same.its a buy for me on wendsday.PLAY BEYOND!!
Ibeen hype about it from day one and it looks like a good purchase for both PS3 fans and Xbox 360 alike until the 2 big guns come out(NG,MGS4.) I just can help but think this whats you get when Gears Of War Impregnated Resident Evil 4 LOL! Can you imagine what this child will look like once its grows up? (Dark Sector 2 to 3)
Looks awesome!! I'm going to get this game, i love Gears of War and Uncharted so i'm definitely getting this game no excuses. Getting the x360 for extended gameplay satisfaction Vibration FTW! Jump in Play Beyond
i saw alot of gears of war in there i just hope they release a demo
I agreed with both of you because ya'll said nothing wrong. I said that both systems owners should have a good time with no fanboy intent and some [email protected] troll wants to fukit up for everybody. Ya dudes is b1tches!!! go play a game or something.
Haven't played GeoW yet but I can say that almost everything looked like Uncharted on the gameplay front. Same cover system, same weapons system, same moves(roll) system. Not complaining, just remarking. Loved Uncharted, looks like a sweet game, I hope I'll end up loving this game too.
