To prepare for PS3's biggest launch game, 1up got together three editors in the office who have been playing ridiculous amounts of it over the past week and posed a series of questions to them for one last preview before launch.
Because like all of us 360 fanboy have been saying and what 1up just said it is a mix of call of duty and half life. LOL, They said it was nothing special or nothing they haven't seen before good luck with your so called killer app. LOL
LOL They said FEAR AI was better than RFOM, RFOm got schooled by an old PC game LOL witness the weakness of cell and its uber AI capabilities.
keep it up Deceased, because your name fits you. you'll find out soon..hehe
You really are special, special ed!!!
Quit yer spamming, boy.
Fear AI has allways been the best in FPS....I'm not suprised it's not better than that.
Nice preview. The comparisons to Half Life 2 are actually getting me excited, much more so than if they compared it to the Halo series, actually.
Yes, Half-Life rocks! Can't wait for the HL2-bundle!
Like i said Sony really need to talk to the Dev's and force them to bring some next gen games to the table(not just pretty good graphics)or Sony's going to have it's own handi-capped grading standards form reviewers. It's all about hardware with Sony and that isn't going to move consoles, judging 7th generation is the most critical so far. Sony fanboys are basing their hate for 360 games on what they think next-gen games should "look like" but forgeting the next-gen "design and gameplay" all the 360 games are getting such high scores for.
Well at least they do have vehicles! I'm predicting 8 and some 9 out of ten reviews! The question now is why would anyone get a PS3 if all the games aren't that good and won't be for a good while?
why did anyone get a 360 if all the games did not perform like gow does? Wait because you like the other games on it and wanted something new!
You have been well misinformed if you honestly think that 360 didn't have great titles or at least ok titles at launch! Condemened, COD2, PGR3, Kameo, King Kong, PDZ, and a slew of xbox live arcade games and demo's up and running on the 1st day that were all exciting to hear about before the 360's launch! The PS3 launch titles suck and there is nothing exciting about the games for it at all! You are purchasing a console that does not focus on games which in my opinion is not even in the same ballpark as 360 and it's games now and in the future! Sorry to hurt your feelings but if you want to b!tch then I suggest you talk to Sony because there the one's screwing you blind bat's and not me! PS3 suck's period and all of you idiot's that get one will have to find out the hard way it looks like!
People bought the 360 because it was the only "next-gen" system out. Now people have a choice. They can buy a 360 with games like GOW, FEAR, COD3 or pay more for the PS3. For me, the choice is simple, the 360 is a true next gen system with a proven online network, offers me the games I want (GOW, Bioshock, A. Wake), and at a cheaper price. Can't wait to see what the movie service is like.
I agree Halo's AI is too advanced for such a weak slow world. The weapons ect in Halo needs it's revolutionary AI and wouldn't work on PS3, H3 wouldn't work on PS3 neither.
Yeah, I'm SURE the PS3 couldn't run any of the Halo games, much less Halo 3...
Please, I'm not going to get into a flame war with you, I was just stating my opinion that I was excited that Half Life 2 was being mentioned and that I preferred Half Life 2 to Halo 1 or 2.
...is that if you're not playing Gears of War this holiday then you're missing out.
with first hand experience from it. Its rather repetitive, and boring.
Move 10 yards, Duck, Kill Enemy Swarm....Move 10 yards, Duck, Kill Next Enemy Swarm...Rinse and Repeat for 8 hrs. nice :/
Can you say Time Crisis ?
Well I must say this article left me with a mixed sense about this game. The first part of the review/preview is quite glowing in regards to the game overall...they seemed to really be praising it, but then you get into the later part of the article and they definitely pointed out some glaring weaknesses to the game.
Overall I think this game is a good title for the PS3 launch. It certainly doesn't sound like the killer app that all wanted it to be. I will say this coupled with COD3 will give the PS3 a solid FPS lineup for launch. I also believe FEAR is coming to the PS3 just not sure its launch or not. Regardless...its a good start for the PS3.
I don't know, I wasn't feeling that much enthusiasm out of this interview. They enjoyed it, but felt it was treading old familiar paths.
The one item that really caught my attention was the old "invisible walls" comment. After hearing so much about the massive "free roaming" battle enviornments it would have I was pretty surprised to see they had them.
Oh and the comment about the AI, while not exactly horrible it was certainly less than what I was expecting. They made the grunt soilders sound very run of the mill in terms of their actions.
...if they are comparing it to the best FPS to date: Half Life 2.
The AI may be not the the best, but it's just a launch title. 360 needed 1 whole year for just 1 great game.
and for the record COD2 was a great game for launch on the 360
COD2, GRAW, PGR3, Fight Night, and Oblivian were all great games through out the year for 360 and all recieved great reviews! PS3 has nothing and nothing coming out that compares to 360 as of yet and anytime in the near future so what's your point? Should I buy a PS3 and wait 2 or 3 years for a decent game or should I buy all of the great titles for 360 and enjoy gaming like it was meant to be? You PS3 clowns are just to much and will defend that boring over rated PS3 no matter what which is sad because it's not even worth it or worth 600 dollars! lol
I'm a sony fan ( hate Xbox ).. But this game doesn't look at that great... Now i really don't mind that I won't be getting a system at launch, because there are barely any good games. Good thing I'll have a Wii and the new Zelda to keep me occupied until i get a PS3 with an actual good game... can't wait for MGS4, devil may cry, resident evil
That was not exactly a glowing review. From the sounds of it this game will get a 7.0 to 8.0 depending on the system preference of the reviewer. Still gonna be a must have at launch due to the small library on offer. Reviewers arent always in tune with the average gamers expectations of a game. My brother in law has 3 preorders so hopefully he keeps one and I can try this out for myself. I personally think the story concept is really cool and FPS games never get old for me.
if anyone was expecting this to be anything other than revolutionary, then i think you missed the boat. Im not sure we will ever see another "revolutionary" fps. This looks good don`t get me wrong, and as a launch title is ok. But anything else would appear to be overkill.
I believe they are playing the 3-4 level demo version. Which isnt a full game review.
Nextly, What makes an FPS is the Event System in it. And if it has an Event System similar to HL2 then this is a great game.
I know I should check myself but I think you need this.
Your a Fu(King Dumb @ss.
I know you post the way you do just to piss people off and push them to the PS3. but do you read your posts. Your making your self look like a moron. Give that Fan boy S#!T a rest.
Thank you your reading B!t(#!!
I can't wait for the Review, I wan't to see numbers.
I'll predict an average of between 8 and 9. But yeah, looking forward to some reviews, probably a few more days for that.
9.1 on IGN, but that story has been squashed on this site apparently, as I can't find it listed anywhere. Weird.
All you YBOX trolls are here to dig up the dirt on this game which reviewers said (among other kick @ss things:
--"W I L L be played through again"--
LOLOL -- what's wrong?? Did all you guys already finish all of the NONSTOP action in your sp gow game and can't find 7 people to play with now????/ LOL Woo-HOo!!! Sorry 8 hours won't cut it.
With the launch of the 360 came epics like Tiger Woods, Live, Gun & NFS (just to name a few)-- truly games that were ahead of their time (right)
-- thank God we won't have to wait and hope for a year that our system can deliver, because we KNOW it can and will from the jump. Thanks for showing the way MS!! LOL
BTW the 'ol PS2 is still goin' strong and wiping the floor around the toilet with all of the BOX creations!! Believe it! LOL
Friends of Sony -- Do not get caught up in all of the YBOX doldrums. They are running scared with their tails in the air now that launch is immenent. They try to come in here and lie while ostensibly rooting for their Add-ON/32X/CD-drive YBOX's to outdo the P3 when history IS NOT on their side, and they're trying to make "it" into something it's not (a computer) with all of their patching and upgrades to disguise all of its flaws -- just like windows. LOL The P3 is launching with Damn - Good - Looking games and believe me, they know it. Their world will be in darkness once again after 1117 as its always been. All talk will be on the P3 and the games - guaranteed. It sux for MS.
Yeah, MS will enjoy the small corner of the room next to the back door, while the P3 lounges in the Big Lay-Z boy watchin' the Bravia in HDMI 1080p and crackin' beers!!!
Hell, the dev's haven't even laced up the shoes of this console yet and it's launching with games which will ALREADY deliver beyond expectations. Imagine what is around the corner. Good luck keeping up MS fanboys. It's gonna be a rough ride! Hint: stop bashing SNE and telling them what they're not capable of -- and tell your dev's to hurry and unleash all the power of the mighty 360 --with a library of kikass games (unlike the ones already out since launch,) QUICK!!!
Oh nevermind - I'm sorry -- I forgot that's why you're all here anyway. My bad -- buy a P3 and enjoy like the rest of the world. On second thought forget it -- I don't want you freaks gettin' in my way on launch. LOLOL
You have to be a teenager your thoughts are monkey-like it's like you ran in here thrashing branches swinging around screaming like a Baboon.
Wasn't God of War only like 4 hours and on top of that had know online functions?
--"W I L L be played through again"--
Thats the best quote in the whole review. The rest of the review basically says the game is nothing new nothing exciting. Dont try to sugar coat this review cause I think they were being polite while saying this game is crap. I for one think it may be better than that but lets not be blind to what they really said. Deep down inside you felt a little disappointment. But go ahead and justify wasting the last year waiting for next gen when it really arrived last year. Anyone that denies the 360 is a next gen console is not a gamer period. For the record I think the PS3 will be great too as a console but the games so far blow hard. Give it another year and it will shine. but then again another year for 360 and it will shine brighter. No matter how you slice it MS got the one year advantage and thats gonna be hard to catch up with. Peace. Gaming is just gaming, stop letting it get you upset.
powg2 has an obsession with apes. Hmmm. I see the Wii in your future.
Candystop just compared gow to the real GOW - Wow...!!! LOL
and iill-tone it's a year dude. A whole year and you guys are just now able to french kiss each other over your LITTLE gow game. You better be happy MS pays off so many reviewers with their partnerships in the publication biz for hypin' that stinker up. But sorry, bub just like last time -- you lose mate.
Just give it up already and embrace the playstation for what it is. Truly, a Next-gen computer / game console. No matter how many things you bolt onto the YBOX (DVD-players, larger hard-drives, nitrous, turbos) it will not have been ready for this age as it should've been. You should've just slowed it down and done it right from the begiining. XBOX Live is the only vestige you all can bring from the last gen to this one that will stand the test of gaming time and SNE will eventually duplicate that and make it even better in the end. Sorry.
Now go play gears of war, again!!! Beat it -- scram!!! LOLOLOL
You have definitely got some screws missing! I feel bad for all PS3 fans because they have all stooped to level that is so low that no matter how terrible the PS3 is and will be they will constantly stick by it's side and fight for it! Goodluck guy and I really hope the PS3 was worth it! lol
mass effect, alan wake, bioshock, alone in the dark, marvel universe, huxley, apb, resident evil 5, project offset, lost planet, r6: vegas, assasins creed, ect. don't worry about it. enjoy the 2 ps3 games this year that you can't play on the 360.
I have to say that reviews go by preference. Yeah you get some good insight into how the game is, but shouldn't be the deciding factor. The 1up guys didn't seem to give a negative view of the game at all. They just answered the questions that were given to them. They told what they felt was good and what they didn't like. No game is perfect no matter what. We all have things that we like about games, and things we don't like about them. That doesn't mean we don't like a game. Playing Gears all night, there were things that I thought was awesome and some things that I thought they could've worked on. I'll say it, I think its kinda repetitve at times, but at the same time, when a game is good, you over look the little things and enjoy it. I played Gears co-op with my friend and he was complaining about stupid stuff that have nothing to do with how the game plays. He's one of those people who have to find the chink in the armor and its nagging because it didn't overtake the fact that I just chainsawed that guy to death or I roadie ran (such a awesome move) from point a to point b while trying to be killed by killer bat things. If you wanna play Resistance cool. If you don't cool. If you want a PS3 cool. If you don't want one, cool. Why is it that there's constantly a bashing of not only Sony or MS or Nintendo but the people who want their products? I can understand bashing fanboys cause they usually have something stupid to say, but other people who are just purchasing something for their own enjoyment, why do they have to be insulted? That's just not cool. Are we all supposed to choose things based on others opinions? Or are we supposed to have our own heads and say hey I want this console cause it does x and y and that's what my preference is. Unite people, unite.
I think many of those questions are asked daily and the only answer that I can come up with that could be even remotely close contains a lot of factors.
The biggest two are anonymity and insecurity. The internet truly is a wonderful thing! =)
(which I own and love.)
Sony's not dumb. They know that FPS are big in America. They've come out with a solid exclusive FPS for the PS3's launch. I say well done and good start. I look forward to playing this game about 2 years from now after the PS3 has dropped in price, and the game is a "greatest hits".
One thought, however, what happens if Sony loyals finally get a taste of a good FPS and realize the 360 is very strong in that genre? If UT2007 is indeed PS3 exclusive, it may be ok for Sony...I just wonder what Sony has up it's sleeve to counter Halo 3 this time next year.
Killzone. Apparently they don't want to detract attention from Resistance, so they're not going to show anything until around March supposedly. There's also a lot of big franchises that haven't been revealed in next-gen form yet (Socom, ATV, Sly Cooper, Jak, etc)
Is coming to the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Seen it in the Gears of War bonus disc included in the collectors edition. It has video footage of UT2007 and let me tell you it is no where nears gears quality, I guess they had to tone it down because the PS3 is weak compared to the 360.
Great news! Thanks. It only made sense, given the success of LIVE, but it also would make sense for Sony to try to secure it as a sequel to bolster/promote its own online service.
You mean HALo is not dropping simultaneously with the PS3 launch as glossed by the M$ braintrust???!!! Hmm - just another MS lie and more "overhype." Nothing new here. About as exciting as a new version of windows.
What company tells lies. Or are you just acting stupid?
I'm just saying -- wasn't that the big push and fuss not too long ago at all? ...That MS was going to have the P3 killer out on shelves and that they were gonna wipe the floor with Playstations guts with their counterattack of games? Well gears has delivered on the hype factor and many of you 360 fans seem to like it ALOT -- but it was all just a lie (HALO 3 12/06). Gears has the ears of the community now, but in a few days it would have all but evaporated (the hype and fuss). I think the P3 will steal QUITE a bit of thunder. You know, hammer -- that's not the way it was supposed to be. And remember, I said a LONG time ago that I am waiting at launch to buy my 360 and P3 at the same time to make my own determinations -- not buying into the hype. Please don't bash my head in.
Guys like him are just overly sensitive. Actually, quite a few users on this site seem to flare up at the slightest insinuation, which is pretty hilarious to watch.
I genuinely hope you are truthfull about getting both systems at the same time and playing and comparing. I think it would be great to hear an honest opinion...if you are truly going into it open minded.
My question for you is what titles are you going to get to compare each system to one another?
i realy are disapointed about this and all ps3 games. For a 3rd generation game this should be out of this world
Madden I wouldn't waste my time on these fickle YBOX fans. It's a trick. They never think they make mistakes. NEVER. Personally I wouldn't waste my time or money on that thing, what with the add-ons, bolt-ons LOL, hard-drive issues, that whirlygig fanmotor noise, et al. Forget it. Go with what's tried and true. Just stick with the playst-- ahh never mind.
btw-- I bet the Raiders really do wish they had you back. How can a guy (Al Davis) that merged the NFC and AFC and won a national championship with ARMY even hold his head up with the play of that offense. It's downright --well, offensive. They need you back bad -- now THAT would be love man ....... LOL
none of this matters cause anyone with 360 and gears knows that the 360 ownz gaming while sony ownz cancer research and second rate next gen movie players. i laugh at all the poor losers clinging to the hope that the PS3 is gonna trounce 360 cause it just wont. Sony said it themselves that PS3 is a computer and movie player first that happens to play games. Its about as serious a game machine as a tv with a built in vcr. I honestly dont know why people can be such blind sheep. While others follow the games. Gimme a good game on a toaster and I will buy it. Toast: Fall of Bread coming soon.
I know how Sony fanboys just get defensive and just start to name call but can you get back to the problem at hand. This looks like a bad preview...In fact, its everything people have been saying...."but doesn't strike me as really groundbreaking"...WWII maps with aliens...to many cut scenes which probably explains the 20 Gigs. This is supposed to be the ps3s gem...the one to get...and this preview was not great...the same site went crazy with excitement when they previewed GOW. Looks like this game is going to be like our Perfect Dark Zero. Another good game, but nothing special. Perfect Dark Zero averaged about 8/10 score.
With all the bad news PS3 has been getting...it's kinda funny seeing all the sony fanboys team up and name call on a xbox fan. And now we have a sony fan boy reaching back into time with a rumor about Halo 3 coming out at the same as PS3??? Thats your best??? Thats the best dirt you can come up with??? I guess desperate times comes with desperate measures!
It was larger, but apparently the PS3 is powerful enough to re-format video on the fly so they just made the NTSC version and let the system convert that to PAL when used in europe.
That leaves 16 GB of game data, which is essentially two DVDs.
Yeah, thats a childish comment but when you have been saying something for months and fanboys don't listen thats how you feel when it happens. Now this is just one small review and a few opinions, so its not the "verdict" on RFoM, in fact I think it will be a good game thats fun to play, and hell it still seems to be better than PDZ, but it does shed light on the fact that it doesn't seem to be anything notable in the "AAA" category and far from the "killer app" as suggested by only the most "extreme Sonyfanboys". Calm down (fanboys) I'm sure PS3 will eventually have its share of AAA exclusives and hopefully some "*killer apps" like GOW, which is very likely to be the game of the year....*note-there is a difference.
Now with that said, its unfair to "expect" so much from a launch game....which is WHY I say "I told you so." -cause Sonyfanboys have downplayed every game on the 360, and accused GOW as just being all "hype".....I've said for months that it will be a while before PS3 will have a AAA exclusive out, but NO the fanboys have tried to imply RFoM would be some kind of glorius FPS that would "set the bar" for the PS3 for launch. -Well again, it just doesn't seem to suggest what the PS3 is truly capable of, but if you understand what I'm saying then that's definitely a good thing.
Leave it to something that rises from ashes to douse a good 'ol FLAMEWAR with suppressant.
THis might well be the most succinct, logical, and even-handed paragraph I've read on this site from a MS fan in over a year re: the P3. Seriously. Well minus the "I told ya so..." stuff, because I've never thought a system launched with a KilLr/App since Super Mario Bros. 1. I just am not gonna let these other lackeys slide by saying that gow ROCKS (a year later) while the P3 games are all garbage -- It's simply ludicrous considering the games available for the YBOX at launch. Again, great post mate.
Now the question is YBOX fans -- are you gonna stand for this kinda lucid thinking???? Of course not -- Quick --
-- K I L L H I M !!!!!!!!!
There were awful hard for a launch title. But whatever!
too many spoilers that would ruin the game experience.just like gears of war.no one wants to be told all the good parts.it might stay true to the fps gameplay,but even gears sticks to gameplay that we have already seen before.the graphics are the only saving grace.they also didn't taste how 40 players online is going to be like.compared to 4vs4,i'd say it has more potential with different matchups.even if gears is good(haven't gotten it yet),it can't compare to the many options of resistance.let the reviewers review the game first.not that it matters.it's just an opinion.
i just want u to imagine the following.
M$'s killer app is not GOW, but resistance
$ony's awesome launch title's not resistance but, GOW.
sony fanboys then wuld be saying that GOW is the sh*t(which it is) and stop saying it sucks and M$ fanboys would be defending resistnace with their very souls saying that 40 ppl. online is the best thing ever.
I'd still be praising and critisizing the same aspects. 40 people online is a great thing too. 4v4 just seems paltry in comparison, though it's nothing different than playing Halo 2 on Xbox Live (which is also 4v4). Doesn't make the game less fun, it just makes me wonder how glorious the bigger matches could've been with huge teams split up into mini-brigades fighting and strategizing.
(4vs4) "Doesn't make the game less fun, it just makes me wonder how glorious the bigger matches could've been with huge teams split up into mini-brigades fighting and strategizing."
-And yes Iam sure you are wondering "what if", and I'm sure there are countless other gamers who wished they did this or that differently, but in the end the developer has to "create a game" based on "his" vision 'cause you can't please everybody.....now before you think I'm knocking your comments, actually I'm not. I think you made a "objective" post.....I'm just pointing out that while its not perfect, but judging by 20+ official review sites and gamer reactions its obviously a KICKAZZ game as it is, as designed/created right now and "suggestions"/critic ism such as yours can be easily made for even the very best games....Lets just hope if that is a popular view among fans that we will see it in the SEQUEL!
So, DJ eventhough I'm starting to like you, I have to, if I don't do it who will.
I will change your quote a little, only the name of the games and other minor details.
"I'd still be praising and critisizing the same aspects. [5,000] people online is a great thing too. 20v20 just seems paltry in comparison, though it's nothing different than playing [Resistance on the PS3](which is also 20v20). Doesn't make the game less fun, it just makes me wonder how glorious the bigger matches could've been with huge teams split up into mini-brigades fighting and strategizing." ...
Do you know what game I am talking about?
Huxley exclusively for the XBox 360 & PC(Windows uhhh microsoft... company that makes the 360).
I can't wait for that to come out. It's a PC/360 title so far, right? Looked crazy last time I saw it.
Yeah so lets just squash all the sony boys talking about the 360 cant do 40 players online cuz last I heard....Huxley has 200 online.
With all the bad news about the PS3 with poor reviews of launch games, frame rate issues, games without online, developers implementing their own game ID’s, game cancellations and game delays, Sony’s launch is looking pretty bleak right now.
Hopefully Motorstorm will get some better news to people who purchase the PS3. I really hope that Sony pulls something out their a$$, as I really want the PS3 to succeed, in which I believe it will. This way both companies can really fight to give us gamers quality products, and have the drive for innovation to make our gaming experience that much better.
For if the PS3 fails, that will just put MS into lazy mode, and us gamers suffer. That is why I stuck to computer gaming last gen, as the PS2 and Xbox were pretty boring consoles. And with really only one system dominating last gen, the PS2 really did suck from a standpoint that all it was, and still is just a gaming console.
The PS3 does have some very redeeming qualities. I have the 360 and love it, but regardless what 360 fanboys say, having a bigger medium to store data for games is a “plus”. Personally I would never use my 360 to play DVD’s, I only use stand alone players for that, but it also gives people who choose to watch HD movies the chance. But this came at a price, and unfortunately I think Sony got a little ahead of it’s time. They face laser shortages with high prices. Blue Ray for most people is, well is useless as HD movies on monitors under 42 inches would be hard pressed to tell a difference from an upscaled DVD movie.
I really think if the “Next Gen” started roughly 3 years from now, where big screen TV’s and 1080p were the standard, the PS3 would most likely have taken off. But as I see it, Sony is really going to struggle with this console. And all this negative news is not helping. Hopefully they can fix this real soon, cause as long as we have 2 competing consoles, then it forces both companies to work for us as gamers, not the other way around.
Just my 2 cents.
I don't think those framerate issues are anything to worry about. Minor quibbles about minor games.
I'm more concerned about the texture problems in GeOW though. From HardOCP's justifiably-glowing review, there's this snippit:
"There were a few issues with Gears Of War that I am surprised have not been mentioned before. Aside from the minor stuff like getting stuck (literally) somewhere you weren’t supposed to be or an A.I. teammate not opening a door that he was supposed to, there was a larger issue that really needs to be addressed; texture rendering.
There are times in the game where it can take 15 – 30 seconds for textures to appear in various parts of the game. It only happens when a level is first loading but it is pretty annoying and looks awful. We are fairly certain this is not an isolated incident because the problem popped up on all three consoles we played on. "
Check the pictures, too. Link's here: http://console.hardocp.com/...
See, you can find something to complain about in any game, no matter how great it is.
