It looked really rough. We'll see how it looks and performs come E3 next year.

scark92960d ago

They need to improve animations on the character. Looked fine overall.

I_am_Batman960d ago

Yeah the game isn't finished yet. I agree the animation need some improvement but the game looks awesome for sure. Didn't know it was RPGish. Kinda looks like a mixture of DmC, Final Fantasy and Horizon which is awesome in my book. This and Quantum Break make me want to buy an Xbox One.

Genuine-User960d ago (Edited 960d ago )

The animations, framerate and voice over need some serious work.

First 30fps game by Platinum?

Bansai960d ago

FFXV demo on PS4 runs similarly (I own only ps4 along with that demo), early versions, no need to fuss over it.

breakpad960d ago

it looks fine ...bizzare mash up ...but generally good

christocolus960d ago

Agreed. i think animation needs more polish but this ign first extended gameplay vid is a lot smoother.

fiveby9960d ago

Game has potential but perhaps too early to know final product. However, I thought the voice acting was terrible. Also, why was the character they showed wearing headphones around his neck. That seemed strange.

Sono421960d ago

Things I like.. the combat (your character) the world and the fact that you put on your headphones to give the amp up music.. but omg the framerate.. I realize it's early but omg it was killing me... I don't think i've ever seen a game look that rough for a reveal? Almost looked like it was struggling to run? but either way.. i'll hold off judgement until later..

But omg there are some ideas that I really hope they implement.. for instance... I watched the extended version on IGN and later when he got into a another fight sequence he put back on his headphones and the same song was playing... ugh :/ It would be AWESOME if they kinda let you customize or choose what songs come up.. (not real ones, well or maybe real ones.. not sure how I feel about that yet) and then have set new music for certain bosses and then you unlock that music after fighting the boss and could use it whenever you want after.. that'd be pretty cool.

The combat also looked pretty hype.. wasn't digging sending the dragon to go destroy the building just seemed very.. meh but the boss fight looked great! and in the extended version when the dragon helped him take out a good amount of enemies also looked nice, although I will say.. except for the boss it didn't really seem like he would have had to do much.. just send the dragon on everything and sit back.. but obviously the game will get more difficult so no need to worry... I could really see this game coming along into something amazing :)

What are you talking about. It looked freaking amazing.

Genuine-User960d ago (Edited 960d ago )

*What are you talking about. It looked freaking rough.

Ever read an opinion before?

Magicite960d ago

Pretty cool concept, they said its action/rpg, so kinda like FF15?

MrSwankSinatra960d ago

I thought it looked good being that it's still a year and half, maybe even two years (if it gets delayed) away from coming out. Though I must say I was kind of disappointed because I was expecting it to be a action game rather than an Action-RPG.

Manic2014960d ago

I think that's maybe why Kamiya had that outburst on Twitter. Maybe he wanted to show a live demo and MS wanted a pre-recorded demo. Also as most the demo's shown today were pre-recorded except for Scalebound.

AngelicIceDiamond960d ago

It started off a little slow but it picked up and it looks great.

My top X1 game.

Of course the build will be a little rough right now the game is still a year away.

The game shaping up nicely nonetheless.

Looks pretty decent so far.

Looks absolutely brilliant 4 player co op wow this game looks amazing

joab777960d ago

Kinda reminds me of lost planet a way.

Is this gonna be xbone's answer for Horizon. Very cool indeed. Hopefully all the internal strife is overblown.

Magicite960d ago

scalebound was announced before horizon, so it wasnt intended as answer I guess.

Godmars290960d ago (Edited 960d ago )

Just hated that the kid wouldn't shut up. That it came off as scripted.

And look who's changing.

nX960d ago

And these ridiculous headphones man, as if they wanted to appeal to the hipster crowd lol

Zeref960d ago

Didn't know headphones are for hipsters now. I wonder if you had anything to say about bayonetta characters. Now THOSE were ridiculous.

LightofDarkness960d ago

Hipsters wouldn't be found dead in beats style headphones. Think you might be confusing hipsters with tossers.

Zeref960d ago

I love characters like that. The cocky teenage brat.

Magicite960d ago

dont bash me, but it looked too americanish, coming from Japanese developer.

slate91960d ago

Blown away! 4 Player coop and the gameplay is just what I was hoping for! Definitely best in the show so far

Godmars290960d ago

Have to wait until you see how/if/when you control the dragon. If it just does what it wants when you're not on it, then what's the point?

slate91960d ago

You didn't see him giving orders to destroy the buildings and attack the monster? 0_0

OpieWinston960d ago

Kamiya on stage it's a free roam world where you can explore on foot or on the back of a dragon.

He gave it orders.

And you could see that there is multiple locations when "Grasslands" pops up on the right.

Godmars290960d ago

But did *YOU* give the order though a controller, or did it just happen because it was scripted.

slate91960d ago

I thought he aimed at the buildings and it showed a circle or reticule thing appear as if he pressed a button. Like click the thumbstick or something.

Godmars290960d ago

Yeah. There's a target reticule. I stand corrected.

Irishguy95960d ago

I hope you can fly it too all those other islands around. That would sell me this game.
