Surprised by the score, I expected much lower 60-70 range, the voice acting is poor (from the trailers) and the animation looks sub-par.
I guess its saving grace is the gameplay.

schlanz2802d ago

I've got a feeling there will be a lot of scores in the 70s and low 80s. Probably will end up with a metascore of just under 80. Just a gut feeling.

Chubear2802d ago

... and so what if it does?

deadreckoning6662802d ago

How could you expect what it would score without even playing the demo? Well, either way, I've been waiting for this game for a long time and I have it pre-ordered.

Bereaver2802d ago

Expectations don't need a fully figured math equation. He had something to go off of. Think about it. Opinions are in the same boat as expectations. I mean, he expected it to be low scores, while you evidently expect a score higher than he expected. Get off your high horse.

HighDefinition2802d ago

The reason being when they sent out the original preview disc everyone said the game was straight garbage. Why do you think it disappeared for almost a year?

BannedForNineYears2802d ago

Why are people disagreeing with Para?
I 100% agree.
The game looks like total crap!!!

AbyssGravelord2802d ago (Edited 2802d ago )

Because that's his opinion and not everyone else has that same opinion.

BannedForNineYears2802d ago

Watch this :
and tell me the game does not look like garbage.
Look through the comments.
I'm pretty sure you'll find at least half of the comments saying something negative about the game/trailer. -_-

AbyssGravelord2802d ago (Edited 2802d ago )

Once again those comments are "opinions."


BannedForNineYears2802d ago

Since when are opinions simply discarded?
Are reviews not opinions?
If every single person alive said a game sucks, is it still an opinion? Does an opinion not have any more meaning if it's the opinion of the majority?

"Saving grace"?
Uhhh....the last I checked, Gameplay outranked voice acting and a lot.

This game has been on my radar for a while. Certain is looking to be shaping up well.

JL2802d ago (Edited 2802d ago )

Agreed. I've been looking forward to this game for quite a while and glad it's finally coming. Looks to be shaping up well. The gameplay seems very cool and love the concept of the game. Very excited for it. Unfortunately though it will have to be put on hold. RDR and ModNation are going to be consuming my time for a while.

Definitely will be picking this up later though. Espionage-RPG just sounds bad as hell. As far as I'm concerned I don't get all the concern about graphics these days. So long as the game doesn't look like it should be on PS1 then I'm fine. Gameplay is what it's all about for me. Though honestly I don't expect this game to end up getting really high scores. I'd expect a high 70s to low 80s to probably be the standard. I'm sure I'll have plenty of fun with it though.

GrilledCheeseBook2802d ago

i do not see why people thought it looked bad
all i saw were bashing on the graphics while the gameplay seemed fun and smooth. games are judged by graphics way too often

Tony P2802d ago

It's really a shame how presentation trumps depth these days.

AP ain't as smooth as say...ME2, but it's customizable, gives you more skills, more ways to handle situations, and the same rich choice-filled dialogue you'd get in a BioWare game. Usually better, imo.

Letros2802d ago (Edited 2802d ago )

I expected the graphics to be dated, it's kind of a Mass Effect 1 spin off(and comparing both min req spec on PC they are the same). That being said, graphics don't really concern me for this game, so hopefully all the other reviews are similar.

BakedGoods2802d ago

Yeah, this game's been in development for a while. The outdated graphics where probably more competitive when they first started making this game (eg, just after KOTOR 2).

Either way, a spy-RPG sounds like an awesome combination. As long as reviews float in the 70's--I'm there.

Rampaged Death2802d ago

Suprised as the game doesn't look great. Will wait to see how the other reviews turn out.

the-show-stopper2802d ago

not really that bad of a game
it was on my radar for a while but then it fell off
if it gets some good reviews from actual rpg fans then ill consider renting or buying it
