I cant wait to buy this game
I kind of want to download the demo, but I know I'm going to buy the game anyway, so I think I'd rather just wait to get my hands on the full version come launch.
i suggest getting the demo, play around and get use to the gameplay that way when u get the game you can just jump right in online mode, with no learning curve
Downloading now. =P
I thought there was a Story Mode part to the demo. Didn't Jaffe say something about that. I wanted to see how the live action scenes turned out.
No.... technically this is a multiplayer demo. It has all the tweaks and just gives the players a small taste of multiplayer. Im still downloading it as we speak... I've heard there are some issues with matchmaking so I guess I will have to try it out tommorow
Game is amazingggggg
I can't connect to a single multiplayer game and I lose every time in the challenge mode even though I score about three times more damage than anyone else and take less than most. Not sure what's going on there but if it all turns out okay this is gonna be a great game.
You have to kill everyone to win. Last Man Standing and maybe you need to use a car with more armor perhaps
try the helicopter best vehicle for challenge mode, just keep on getting health in all the hidden locations. It should be easy with the helicopter.
I'm sure the final game will be awesome, but the demo sucks (at least right now). I can't connect to a single online game at all, it just say server error then goes back to the menu. I'm sure this will be fixed, so no worries. (Do they "patch" demo's? Lmao) However the challenge mode sucks too. You can't win at it at all. Every single car is attacking you, and it seems to be on super hard mode because all their shots hit you no matter what and every car can perfectly align themselves to hit you. Then you go and shoot them and they seem to be invincible and can dodge pretty much everything. I think I've blown up two cars so far, that's it. The fact every single car is there to attack you is annoying as hell. I know it a "challenge" mode, but come on. Its a demo, it's there to sell the game, and you go and toss the hardest thing in the game at people. Winning = fun, the average person isn't going to find getting their arse handed to them by the computer fun. However I'm sure whenever they decide to let multiplayer work for once, my thoughts will easily change.
Try nuke mode like 3 or 4 times. Jaffe said (and I can attest to this personally) that it's likely a problem with deathmatch mode, so give nuke mode a few tries (it probably wont work on the very first try though). And Jaffe said today on twitter that the difficulty of the normal mode in the demo is NOWHERE near as bad as it is in the full game (he actually did say NOWHERE like that).
@Vickers&Soldierone Actually the way he meant it is that Normal mode in the full game is nowhere near as difficult as the demo. People were commenting how hard the challenge mode was with no respawns. The exact quote was "AI in normal mode of final game is NOWHERE near as hard as in demo." Phew!
I destroyed about 4 enemies so far in one match. It takes so getting used to but once you get the hang of it you start destroying the other cars much easier.My murder balls are especially effective at taking care of pursuers.If you are having problems surviving try using Darkside. Even if it is slower it is tougher and can take more damage. Also try looking at the map to see if anyone is after you. If they are you can use the turbo and out run them or drive behind things or through passages to lose them. If the controls are bothering you can change them. A different configuration helps. I find the racing controls are suitable for me.Also try rear shooting. It helps take out people even if you can't see them.
Good advice going to try it out again now and see if I'm any better. @ vickers, will try that also. If this is "nowhere near the difficulty" then I think I will be waiting to buy this game lol (that is if I don't get the hang of it soon) Edit: Still nothing, tried Nuke 7 times in a row and it didn't connect at all. Trying again here and there between single player matches and still no luck.
what i did was drive in reverse and counter attacker my pursuers and also all weapons have a rear attack
@Soldier What he meant, is that the difficulty mode in the challenge mode of the demo isn't anywhere near as hard as the full retail version. And that's a good thing, because the AI in the demo is BS. Enemies only seem to go after the player and completely ignore each other, and are also a 100% accurate and always seem to have like 20 missiles at their disposal. If you found that challenge mode too easy (if you happen to be a freak), then that mode (and I think a harder one) will be in the full game.
I beat challenge mode stock up on fire missiles run over drivers run back to health spawns you win!
look at my comment above you.
Just tried the demo, and I'm getting destroyed offline (haven't tried online yet). I thought it was the controls, but it is listed as "classic TM". Damn, I'm too old/out of practice, lol.
Fear not, Jaffe tweeted that the AI in the final game on Normal is NOWHERE (he used caps) near as hard as the demo. That's a lifesaver for me. Demo on challenge mode plays great *but* it's set to COD:[email protected] Veteran difficulty for some reason which I know will turn some people off. I've only won 'bout 4 rounds, none with the bike. Hope they tweak the demo difficulty as the SP will be what makes or breaks it for people until they fix the online, and it's pretty deep as is. Kind of a Warhawk feel with all the pickups, the full button usage and the look. Fun, but tense. You definitely need to memorize the health pickups to stand a chance. Think I've settled on the Racing controls button mapping.
Haha, my record for "surviving" in one of those challenge modes is a meager 2:13 ish. I think I'm going to spend more time doing the tutorial(s) and challenges, before I dare step into the pantheon of online matches! And yeah, all the pick ups feel powerful, and the sound effects for each one are spot on. I'm getting good vibes from this demo. Final product surely will shine. Hmmm, I might have to try out the racing controls you mentioned. Thanks for the suggestion.
Bad ass demo. Can't wait for the anarchy online. They done good with this one.
Advice: KEEP PLAYING. JUST KEEP PLAYING. I was about to turn the PS3 off after I lost the 6th or 7th deathmatch in a row, but I'll be damned if I let a video game get the best of me, and I've won every match since. Once you get the hang of knowing what weapon you have selected and how to use them properly, it's all cake. Like the guy above said, get them health packs boi, just know where they are and the quickest route to get to them.
The game is freaking fun as hell i love it :P
Game is fast fun but doesn't feel tied to the old twisted metals. As a hardcore fan, I'm disappointed with it but will most likely get it down the line. It is Twisted Metal.
Well they need to fix mp as cant connect before I judge it.very difficult controlls so many buttons its rediculous lol.
i deleted it and redownloaded it again. it worked but the online is not working. so i just played the 1 player and so far based on that, im not liking this game. The graphics are horrible, the controls are sluggish(should allow customize controls) and the AI pretty much dominated me. felt like they were all against me and when I try to drive away, they have good aim while on the move. Im not digging the classick controls so im going to play Black(PS2) soon cause I don't remember not liking the controls.
I was not liking the controls at first either, but this was mainly because I came off of playing TM2 for the last month. Just go to the training mode and keep practicing. I wouldn't say the graphics are horrible, but they are purposely toned down in comparison to most games, which I'm guessing is the only way they could include so much destructibility and mayhem, all while keeping a constant fast frame rate. If the difficulty was a problem for you, luckily according to Jaffe, the final game on normal mode will be "NOWHERE" near the difficulty of the demo.
