CRank: 5Score: 0

David Cage's games are just bad films with minimal and clunky interactivity. If they were films being shown in cinemas, most people would think they sucked. Film critics certainly would anyway. It frustrates me that he's put on a pedestal as some sort of auteur when he's really just a hack. He reminds of me of Christopher Nolan a bit - his stuff APPEARS intelligent and deep, but it's actually not. Pure pretense.

This game is shaping up to be less and less like Beyond Good and Evil by the day. I feel like it might just be a totally different game with the Beyond Good and Evil name slapped on it to help sales, and probably with some BG&E stuff superficially shoehorned into it to appease fans of the game's namesake.

They should just remove any references to BG&E from this, slap a different name on it, and then make the ACTUAL BG&E2. If Ancel wants to make this game, th...

This looks like a lot of fun. The seamless cutscenes are very well done. The only thing that irks me is the web effects - I feel like they could be improved a little bit, You get a good look at them during the cutscene where he first shoots web on the helicopter - they look kind of crappy. Other than that though, this game looks great.

THIS. People aren't thinking straight.

If I'm honest, the trailer gave me the impression that the developers don't quite get the original game. The visuals are too rugged or something, especially the giant bridge. Adding more detail isn't necessarily a good thing - it changes the overall impression that the game makes. This remake looks a lot less dreamy or something. I don't think these new visuals preserve the vibe of the original game very well, they ...

I own and have played the game many times dummy. I know full well that it's great, but it didn't need to be remade.

You not criticizing the fact that Fumito Ueda and genDESIGN don't seem to be involved with this remake proves YOU don't know much about this game.

Seems like a lazy remake to me though. More than a remaster, but not quite a remake. It's like a super remaster or something.

Eh, I don't know. I love SotC, but this remake just seems pointless. And genDESIGN isn't involved so...

Is Ueda involved with this all? It looks like the video game equivalent of a shot for shot remake. Everything seems the same, but the textures and lighting are more detailed and advanced. I don't know... why is this being made? Did anyone actually want this? Seems unnecessary.

Nope, not feeling this. Why'd they make it super edgy? What's with the excessive swearing? The original game had like a teen rating for chrissakes. People have been waiting almost 15 years for a sequel ever since the first game ended on a gigantic cliffhanger, and what do they get? An edgelord prequel. What are Ubisoft and Ancel thinking?

Also, this is just ANOTHER CG cinematic. STILL no gameplay. If this game ends up being crappy and ruins any chance of a third gam...

This game doesn't need a remake. I wouldn't be opposed to a sequel, but I reckon this is just a Ps4 release of the HD version or something.

Someone's been playing Shin Megami Tensei.

That looked like some kind of crappy f2p third person shooter. Yikes.

"one scene where he was hanging like a bat and then flew off when he found out that he was actually someone else or some shit"

That's the part where, under the thrall of Sephiroth, Cloud hands the real Sephiroth (who is generating a new body for himself within a materia cocoon, and needs Jenova cells to complete the rebirth [which is what the final boss is]) the Black Materia. At that point, Cloud has become convinced by Hojo and Sephiroth that he was artifici...

Some things should be cut I think. I played it recently and it's great, but there are definitely a few moments that detract from the experience.

- The CPR scene with Priscilla is just a lame excuse for a mini-game and is kind of creepy. Also, the character of Priscilla is just shelved immediately - why dedicate a mini-game to her? I almost feel they should just rewrite that enter Under Junon section.
- Using a dolphin that jumps like 40ft into the air to boost ...

Nah, I'd say more gameplay this year, but the game won't actually release till late next year or maybe even early or mid 2019.
