A demo of Eragon has just been released on Marketplace (415 MB). The fantasy-adventure game is based on the novel written by Christopher Paolini, and will be released on PC, 360, PSP, DS, Xbox and Playstation 2 in November.
Uninspiring to say the least, next gen it aint!!
I listen to the video game jocks podcast each week. In episode 14 they talked about how they played this game at a gaming event in New York City a couple of weeks ago.
Needless to say, they thought that this game was one of the worst games that they have played in a very long time.
I think they even mentioned that there are PS2 and original XBox games that would blow this out of the water.
I'll still check it out though! I'll give any free demo a try!
You can't expect "next-gen" games from last-gen ports...unless you're a moron.
Just cause didn't just come out on the 360 (you'll no doubt say that's not next gen though)
Boring demo and it looks bad. Think I'd rather choose GoW, R6 or CoD3 this month.
They say it looks like crap the screen and videos I've seen look like crap as well. I'll wait until its $7.99 and in a bucket at the dollar store.
It's not the $7.99 I'd be worried about. It's the time I'd have to waste in order to play it.
I still wouldnt spend $7.99 on it personally..
1st its a game based on an upcoming movie, i.e. they are rushing to get this out in time for the movie this holiday.
2nd, its a movie game on multiple LAST gen systems which basically means port to 360 and spiff up visuals slightly.
3rd...did I mention its a game based on a movie?
It would be nicer if it were a demo of Elveon instead of Eragon =)
