Gamescom: PlayStation’s CounterSpy Looks Great, Plays Poorly | IGN

IGN: "CounterSpy looks fun but plays rough. There’s a great nugget of an idea here – it’s a time-based Cold War-era spy game with shooting and stealth elements – but in the section I played, I was left frustrated by its inexact controls, bizarre shooting mechanics, and sloppy cover system. CounterSpy most certainly has a Metroidvania thing going on, with shades of Shadow Complex and Rocketbirds all over the place, but the demo didn’t remotely play up to the standard of the best games in that beloved genre." (Counterspy, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

I thought this when I saw the latest trailer. Looks like it was made for Iphones first and Vita second

The gameplay sure as hell didn't look good to me when the developers themselves showed it. It just looks very stiff and too segmented.

Meh, I was excited about this game.

Here we can see that there is no stealthy in this part. At the end there is the cover system. It is clear that the aim is too stiff.

The combat/movement definitely seems off. When they first announced the game I was really hopeful because the art style looks great. But this really isn't what I was looking for. Gonna have to pass on this one unfortunately.
