I'd like it better if I had a key...

James Vanderbeek3254d ago

there so f'ing negative all the time. This article is very boring to read so save your time and go watch dawsons creek..

Anyway i cant wait to play this game.. Looks different and fresh..

morriss3254d ago

So if it said it was brilliant and it didn't have any faults you'd think it was a good article.

The fact that it's honest and tries to give a balanced opinion pointing out both the negatives and the positives makes it boring?

Riiiight.

After playing the beta, I can say that I relate to the depth problem. It is a 2d but you have 3 areas along the z plane to occupy. I found that there are a lot of times when you want to jump on something in front of you but you end up jumping on something parallel to that object...Hard to explain. That is probably the only negative thing I can say about the game. I didn't find any lag in button response...and like the article states, this beta is based on an early build so it is only going to get better (if possible)!

PS...this game is incredibly addicting as it will invade your thoughts while you sleep and while you are at work!

Too bad you don't have access to a PS3 or you could be playing amazing games instead of wasting your time emphasizing that you can't afford one.

Drekken3254d ago

He is right poor poor me. I played this BETA, I repeat... BETA for Six or seven hours straight last night. I can tell you this game is a masterpiece and is truly addicting. I kept going through peoples boards playing and it really gives you the impression that this game is ENDLESS.

I played Coop locally most of the night and me and my friend had a BLAST. I am 29 yrs old and I can confirm this game goes well beyond the "kiddie game" it has been labeled.

Sony has secured an exclusive that will prove to be the new face of the PS brand. After seeing the boards made after 1 day of them demo being out, I am very excited to see what ideas people will come up with for the full version of the game. I absolutely LOVE this game. I was unimpressed at first, but now this game is a first day buy for me......
HATE ON HATERS!

PS - The controls are solid... this guy is a tool.

I have the beta too and the game kicks. I spent the entire night last night making my own level. There is so much to do that I don't know if I will ever finish it. I am 31 and you are right..."well beyond kiddie game"! What is funny is that the only people who are claiming this game to be childish are the ones who are anit-Sony.

I agree that the controls are solid!

SL1M DADDY3254d ago

Leaves me wanting to see it for myself. Saying the controls are clunky and unresponsive is a relative thing to say. People feel for controls differently and this guy might not have the feel for platformers and others might. I have seen way too many videos of this game to truly take this articles negativity to heart and have to say that I want this game for myself. Even if there is a learning curve, I want it for the community and creation values.

js_mac3254d ago (Edited 3254d ago )

This guy above, Vanderbeek (has he even played it?) slams this article for being even mildly critical, and then he gets 3 agrees. I think this game always seemed like it was going to be s*** in the end. I watched all the videos, read all the previews and I still did. The idea sounds nice, but the game is quite obviously not going to be perfect for a number of reasons. And it's now nice to have someone (in the form of ths article) bring a refreshing change to all the fawning and sucking up going on over the level creator.
It'd be very wise to take your rose-tinted glasses off before you buy this game; this loyalty to brand is laughable. No one's impressed by sheep.

thor3254d ago

Yes but all the players' impressions I've seen have been OVERWHELMINGLY positive. "Perfection" is something that can never be achieved.

They complained that the levels were a bit slow paced, which is to be expected since they are the first, easiest levels in the game.

I've not heard anything bad about the depth system - they complained that you sometimes can't move in and out of the screen but I can only presume that's because there wasn't enough space for them to.

And I seriously doubt that the actions on-screen occur a while after you've pressed a button, but this could be a slight annoyance. Nothing major, though.

Plus, it's the beta which MM have said themselves is from an old build and all the network features have got an upgrade including 5-star ratings and improved stability.

js_mac3254d ago

I'm not arguing that this WILL be s***. If it's good I'll get it; I doubt it will be though. All I'm saying is keep and open mind.

thor3254d ago

Come on, why so negative! Even this hands-on preview was quite positive, I was just noting the flaws they mentioned. They said they "quite like" the game. I don't think there's anyone who doesn't think it will be a good game. The worst I've seen from people who have played it is along the lines of "Yeah, it's good, but it's not amazing like everyone says. I'll give it another go, I've not tried out ___ mode yet." Co-op is going to be a blast!
