Game looks pretty damned good! If you own a 360 and don't plan on getting this one, you're nuts. Next year is going to be very interesting!

green3286d ago

2010 is going to be a great year for gaming. Got Bayonetta, Mass Effect 2 and Splinter Cell conviction all pre-ordered.

thereapersson3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

My excitement for this game just shot way up, so long as I don't have to deal with reading stupid fanboy comments comparing this to Metal Gear Solid.

The frame rate is a bit inconsistent, and there's an awful lot of screen tearing, but that runs parallel with the game being early in its development phase. Everything else looks GREAT; this is almost how I envisioned the series going. I'm glad that Ubisoft re-designed the game from its original state, because that wasn't really doing it for me.

I like the branching co-op gameplay. I remember playing Syphon Filter Online with my PS2 and I had always wished that someone would take the co-op espionage / infiltration gameplay to the next level.

The way the device effects like the Sonar play across the world remind me of the scene in "The Dark Knight" where Bruce Wayne sets up the resonant imaging trick to get a layout of the building. Very nice :)

GameGambits3286d ago

This just moved up from a rent to a possible buy for me. Really digging everything in this video.

I'll wait for final reviews on how the multiplayer is, but I know I want to rent it to complete the campaign.

Def. want to play this, ME2, and Alan Wake on my 360 next year. :)

inveni03286d ago

The co-op looks pretty fun. The graphics don't really look as detailed as I'd hoped, but in this kind of set up, I don't think they matter that much. I'm sure single-player campaign probably plays a little better.

THINGS I LIKE: Being able to climb about everywhere.
THINGS I DON'T LIKE: The 'hiding in the shadows' effect is kinda annoying. But I think you'd get used to it.

If I had a 360, I'd probably pick this game up.

chewmandinga3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

Are you implying that Bruce Wayne is Batman?

Your comment should come with a spoiler alert :p

Bigpappy3285d ago

3 alarms your out from the fist game should come back. I hate when they dumb down great games because reviewers complain about do overs. Reviewers just want to zip through and move on.

FACTUAL evidence3285d ago

Fantastic! I'll wait for the ps3 release. *chuckles*

madestar3285d ago

not anything ps3 can't handle.. graphics are basic.. basic 1 2 3 enemies on screen like any other 360 game.. not going to pick this up at all

TROLL EATER3285d ago

not somethin ps3 will get

LeonSKennedy4Life3285d ago

But something my beast of a PC is going to get. : )

Better version too.

7thNightvolley3285d ago

see all those disagrees coz ppl.. love the game coming to the 360.. ehehe.. how pathetic..

villevalorox3285d ago

IDKm as amazing as this game looks, I just cant seem to like M&E, I think they are going to push players where they have to use it and I would be one who would not. But other than that, this game is making me look into buying a 360..

Jaces3285d ago

Looks really great. This is a must buy along with ME2 next year.

WildArmed3285d ago

Game looks awesome. I've gotta pick this up for PC or 360.
Man, I hope they spent a good amount of time on online co-op as well as story.
Don't want 3-4 hours single player n 3-4 hour co-op.

Can't wait!

KaBaW3285d ago

How do you still have soo many bubbles?
How many other accounts you got?

We get it, "you" have a good PC.
Good for you, now move along boy.

Menech3285d ago (Edited 3285d ago )

Yay yet again something that looks awesome on the 360 getting trolled by the moronic PS3 fanboys... Seriously everyone was happy when you got Uncharted 2 can you not just let them enjoy this sweet game please?

I know your going to try be smart and say comments like getting it on the PC but guess what, Microsoft doesn't care both games are on a platform they own they get there cut regardless.

Anyways that's it Leon stick it to Microsoft there be getting your cash in there bank account no matter what platform you pick. Am sure they will enjoy using that cash to make Splinter Cell: Conviction 2. Look on the bright side you can cry about that in 2011 then!

whothedog3285d ago

@above

MS doesn't get anything unless MS produces the game on PC. FACT look it up.

On topic, the game looks great. I will be holding out in hopes of a PS3 version :)

Alan Wake3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

Only on Xbox 360 : )

Sony gay fans now jealous like all time lolololol

Unicron3286d ago

Damn, I'm stuck with the superior PC edition. Woe is me.

thereapersson3286d ago

Xbox fanboys love using homosexual terms like "Gaystation" and gay fans, as well as throwing the word "[email protected]" around on live with great enthusiasm. It's no wonder why you guys are so insecure about everything!

; )

lh_swe3286d ago

It's being released on PC and seeing as I have played almost all of them on PC why should that tradition stop especially considering I have a new-ish PC?

ssipmraw3286d ago

did you know the people who denounce others as being gay are usually gay themselves

thereapersson3286d ago

Either that, or curious about the life style. Either way, Alan Wake is a dumbass :)

ZombieAutopsy3286d ago

lol gay really?? Someone needs to come out of the closet. Ohh yea and Its not only on xbox360 since i could be playing a much much superiour version on my PC along with left 4 dead and gears of war.

Udidntlistenpunk3285d ago

Wow what a shiatty ass boring game.

Graphics are shiatty, animations are crappy, screentearing, the black and white did not help the game at all.

Maybe Im just spoiled recently by jawdropping triple A's but this game looks like garbage next to some of the games I played recently.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3285d ago

Yeah Sony fanboys show Microsoft who is boss get teh PC version and support... uh... Microsoft Windows :D that should teach em.

Trying to get to sleep and this happens.

Got my bonus today and I'm going to use this video as my excuse for not going shopping for 12hours with my wife....knowing it won't work.

Also thinking of investing in an LED TV. Any suggestions?

Splinter Cell Conviction is looking good and I can't wait to Prologue it up on Live.

The framerate drops are more of an uploading problem because I've seen this game run smoothly from direct download videos.

thereapersson3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

That's strange, to be honest. It didn't seem like a video encoding issue, because it appeared as if the frames themselves were causing jankiness. There was also screen-tearing present as well, but as I stated in my earlier post, I'm not worried about any of this. I know that Ubisoft will have everything ironed out by release.

As for LED technology, I know that it is relatively new in terms of HDTV tech, so I can't really say much other than I have seen Samsung sets and they exhibit quite a good color reproduction range and contrast ratio. I actually have a Sony SXRD slim rear projection set, and I really wish that Sony still manufactured them. That thing produces quite possibly one of the nicest-looking HD images I've seen to this day, and my set is 3 years old now.

mrmikew20183286d ago

your one lucky prick to get a bonus, it this time and age.

kewlkat0073286d ago

Meaning the Slim sets out now,[Samsung 8 Series] shine 2 lights on the edge of the set to brighten up the whole panel but the next series from Samsung[ Series 9000] should have LED panels through out the back like today's "LCD" screens which should be more evenly lighted through out the picture. As well, you should be able to dim the lights to offer better contrasts.

Don't listen to all the hype, LED is not new technology like the commercials make it seem. The reason for LED lighting being used now:

1. LED sets delivered higher contrast ratios with finer hue separation between black and white, resulting in better light quality and a more natural picture than LCD sets.

2. LED TVs are also 70-per-cent slimmer than LCD sets and use 40-per-cent less power.

I'm a more bang for your bucks guy, so I wouldn't buy a Sony knowing Samsung make the same or better panels for less. The [Samsung 9000] series will come in 46/55 inches if you can wait.

thereapersson3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

Wow dude, you sound like a marketing shill for Samsung or something. Did you even read my post? I don't even OWN a flat-panel, let alone plasma or LCD. I just stated I wish that Sony still made them because they were the best modern TV's that Sony produced. BTW, color reproduction and image quality in an SXRD A-Series television is greater than that of a comparably-sized DLP set.

edit:

lol @ the guy disagreeing with me. Looks like I have an angry stalker... :D

kewlkat0073286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

I was talking to i3eyond the Circle about LED tvs these days. MY post has nothing to do with what you said. I even sent him a private message.

Really I could care less what you have. My post has nothing to do with yours. I would would of echoed you in my post if it did.

Sheesh...I gave the guy my opinion now, I'm on Samsung's marketing payroll...Sakes were talking about HDTVs. Something I happen to follow closely at the AVS forums and that's why I replied.

thereapersson3286d ago (Edited 3286d ago )

I posted that I thought LED technology was relatively new, and you posted "LED is not new technology like the commercials make it seem". I also mentioned that I had a Sony set, and you said "I'm a more bang for your bucks guy, so I wouldn't buy a Sony knowing Samsung make the same or better panels for less". Just a coincidence it seems, and in that I apologize for my harsh reaction. I also used to hang out at the AVS forum a lot, and that was actually how I made the decision to buy my current set over the DLP's and flat-panels that were on the market a few years ago. A good decision on my part, I must say.

No actual hard feelings against you, though! :D

kewlkat0073286d ago

some don't know the difference between an LCD/LED set. The average person does not follow reviews or scour forums about HDTVs. You go to the store and look at the wall[listening to some sales clerk hoopla] and they make a choice or stick with a name brand.

My recommendation for the Samsung was only a recommendation since Sony sets or a bit pricier for no awesome reason. Anyhow N4G is not the place to dabble about HDTVs, go to the AVS forums if you wanna see fanatics.

PS360PCROCKS3286d ago

actually kewlkat I went and looked up that tv and according to your AVS buddies it's either a.) cancelled or b.) nobody has a clue when it's coming...here is a nice alternative though

http://www.lge.com/us/tv-au...

i3eyond the Circle3285d ago

Thx for the info guys.

That 55'' LHX 240hz is an amazing television.

If the Samsung 9 is better than that^ I can wait for it, but from what I'm reading it has no actual window of release.

kewlkat0073285d ago

It's just if your gonna spend TOP Dollar on a product(seeing he got a bonus) you might as well get the latest set.

Then again, more HDTVs will be coming out that are 3D ready so that is another thing to think about.[If that's your thing]

Them LGs are pretty slick and very thin as well. Man Koreans have stepped up their game the last couple of years. I remember when LG was in he likes of Best Buys [Insignia] brand. Look at them now.

Not to make things any more difficult don't forget 2010 International CES, January 7-10. More toys will be on display soon.

PS360PCROCKS3285d ago

your welcome and ya kewlkat you actually taught me something today...I never realized the LEDs only lit the edges and not the full screen. I was going to go and buy one because my aunt has one and it's got a beautiful picture. I like that LG, it's funny you said that about the quality because I found that link on AVS for that TV and the first thing I said was "Hmm LG? I dunno" I'm glad the quality seems to be better. I think I'm shooting for that LG now unless those 9000's come out. Plus the 3D sets, sucks no matter when you buy your always behind.

Looks sweet, I'm still deciding on weather I should do this first with a friend or start single player...
