DAMN i want this game to be made.
I felt like someone kicked me in the nuts after i read this news. though i hope someone grabs this title and releases it.
this should read: "Q&A: Randy Pitchford gives the behind-the-scenes story on the adaptation of Michael Mann's 1995 crime (((MASTERPIECE))), explaining why Al Pacino was almost on board, three top publishers were interested--and why the IP is now up for grabs." One of the top 10 Best Movies Ever Made on Earth imho.
This game is doomed to failure. Heat is a great movie so don't get me wrong. But if they make this game it is going to either be a Gears clone or a GTA rip-off like the subpar Godfather series. Just enjoy the Blu-Ray and leave Heat alone.
i kind of agree. on paper it sounds great... but i really can't imagine how they will pull it off. If it ends up another fps, i just don't see it being that great. If its third person it would be cool but i can't help thinking it will be a seen as a gears clone. if its sandbox, again it would be cool, but it would need to be done on par with gta and again i don't see it happening. while gta 4 had a few issues in terms of content, on a technical level it was still very good. ya, it should prob just be left alone.
I agree with Maddens Raiders - Heat is one of the ten best movies ever made. I would love to see a great game that does the movie justice but I can't see it happening. Perhaps the best angle is to just get Rockstar to do it- as the shootout in GTAIV shows they love the movie Heat and they are talented and smart enough to pull it off. The problem for me with a Heat game is that it can't just be a shooting game- Heat is about more than that. Better no game than a sub standard one. Roll on November 3rd for the Blu-ray though!
Sure i agree HEAT is one of the best movies i have seen, but i was really hoping that this game could be released and if we were lucky enough it could be good.
Mezzo - I'm completely with you- I want a great game based on Heat to come out- I'd buy it the second it was released. Here's hoping...
