The guys at ZTGD give a quick synopsis of the recently released demo of Midway's Hour of Victory for the XBox 360. Find out if this new WWII FPS has what it takes to stand out among the herd.
This is available on the Xbox Live Marketplace? I can't find it...
i have heard people saying that it is not on Marketplace, but it has been on my marketplace since release day (demo release day incase people think the game is out) and it is still there now, i have downloaded it but havnt tried it yet.
nothing in the demo impressed me. probably one one the worst WWII shooters i have played.
you can pretty mutch play through it without firing your gun, you just run in and melee them.
nice tip cheers ;)
It was but they took it down. The reasons they did so have been speculated on. I and others had trouble downloading it so I suspect that was the reason it was removed. Others think it was removed due to poor reception by gamers. Also, you probably have to have a gold account to get it right now, so if you dont see it that could be why. I havent checked today to see if it is back up or not.
So this guys review was extremely positive compared to most peoples reviews. Although I didnt hate the game as many others did I think this review was a little too much of a spin job.
He mentioned ridiculous AI. He was talking about hoping there was a ridiculous AI setting for 3 people co-op and meant it in a good way. I felt the game was already on ridiculous AI but in a bad way. The one thing that really stood out to me the 3 times I played the demo is that there is absolutly zero tension. There was never fear I would die. The AI were absudly stupid and almost seemed pre-programed. They would run to a spot whether you were standing their or not and would not change cover when you flanked them. Besides the stupid AI was the superhumanness of your character. Sure you could play all 3 characters differently, but why. You can have the enemy unload all his amo in you and barely even flinch.
If this demo was just set on "very easy" mode which dumbs down the AI and ups your strength then MAYBE this game could reach the lower levels of a good rating but mostly it is just average to below average. At this point it is a bargin bin filler game at best.
Ya the A.I. definately needs some work but the graphics were kicka$$ I overall liked the demo and am going to buy it regardless
nice to know, when does this game get released? as i am pretty sure they will sort out the AI... hopefully
this game demo is horrible, horrendous, bad. crap, the worst i ever played yet. don't even waist your time downloading this.trash!
agreed... the gameplay is crap and the character models are creepy
do either of you even have an Xbox 360?.... if so why dont you have your gamertags in your profile?
This game is poo. Don't even want to tell you why its not worth it. The tank driving reminds me of WarHawk.
I wasn't really looking forward to this game anyway, but you people make it sound horrible.
if you zoom its the opposite in real life.
this annoys the hell out of me.
i think this mite be one of those games which you mite have to rent/ buy incase they have sorted out these problems in the full game.
i hope its good.
I wasn't really anticipating this game but, maybe ill give it a try.
wrong article and i dont know how to delete the comment
you cant delete any comments.
just absolute crap, Midway blows. If you didn't play it you didn't miss out. LOL trust me.
that's what i think
