This game's potential was HUGE! The initial content that was shown looked very promising, and it seemed as if Piranha Bytes had finally stumbled upon a few extra hires that could facilitate the extra coat of polish which had been missing from practically every previous game in their portfolio. But as an avid fan of the Gothic series since its inception, Gothic 3 being the exception, I was disappointed when mediocre to negative reviews finally began to trickle out.

Only found out about this game just a mere 2 months ago, but I've been anticipating it ever since. Being a sucker for hand-drawn art in games, I knew this was one title that I would surely not be missing! Also as an fyi - I believe if you preorder it before Oct 3rd on Steam, they're offering a free Sega Classics package with 10 games including: Comix Zone, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Kid Chameleon, Ristar, Decap Attack, Flicky, Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair, Gunstar Heroes, Dyna... #1

Beautifully overpriced. I'd rather put the $1200 towards new hardware, but it is very sleek looking case - you gotta at least give 'em that. #1

ninavoljic, how is it that I'm, as you put it, a "classic fanboy" and of who exactly? Because I was discussing two different developers here - Blizzard and Runic, both of which have interwoven histories. I was also referencing facts; something you must not be privy to. And the overall favorable reviews for Diablo I & II coupled with the successful longevity of the brand are more than enough to substantiate my statement.

Ironically for you, it's been well... #6.1.2

And you're mad that former D1 & D2 developers are creating a new RPG like Diablo? Why? You as a consumer WIN! Your logic is absolutely baffling! After all, you CAN play and enjoy both. That's the beauty of being a consumer, ya know. Also, those aforementioned developers DID work on TWO of the finest RPG's of the last 15 years (DI & DII). DII most certainly has stood the test of time, and that is a fact that simply CANNOT be disputed. I fear the same can not and will not be... #6.1

Very reminiscent of Lost Odyssey in various capacities, especially how the character navigates the environment. Overall aesthetic reminds me of a Deus Ex/Bladerunner-styled world. Voice acting was decent until the Captain showed up - then it was downright evil enemy cheese. Character movements seemed a bit too sluggish at points as well when she was bounding over obstacles towards the beginning and end of the chase. I mean she IS being chased by a hovercraft lobbing high caliber rounds at her... #3

Do we even need a breakdown to compare? Diablo III was awful. It was a slap in the face to its very fanbase, and the "always on" DRM requirement (as zeal0us stated) was the rotting cherry on top of it all. Funny thing though, I really didn't think it was all that bad while I was playing through it, despite the fact that its shortcomings progressively revealed themselves during that time, but now almost two months later in hindsight - that's all I can say.

Either that or they didn't want to compete with Sept and Oct's most-anticipated titles like Borderlands 2, Dishonored, XCOM, Torchlight II, etc.. #1

Oh, I hope not! That thing looks like a Dreamcast controller on steroids, and it's probably way too heavy to boot. #9

Freespace and Planescape Torment, for sure! I absolutely LOVED those games! #12.1

Sounds like the archaic sexaphobic ramblings of a "Teabagger" to me. In other words, ignore ALL natural instincts and ONLY engage in sexual acts under the banner of marriage and for the pure sanctity of reproduction. Sorry to burst your bubble bud, but it's 2012 and those leanings don't necessarily fit within the societal construct any longer. #1.2.8

I've put about 35+ hours into the game thus far, and yet despite all the moaning and groaning from the PC community, this game plays as flawlessly as it did on the Xbox 360/PS3 - granted, IF you've installed the resolution fix and IF you have an Xbox 360 or PS3 controller to utilize for your PC gaming experience. I have not attempted to play this game with a mouse/keyboard combo, so I cannot speak for it there, but nor would I want to. I've played all of the AC games, The Witcher... #4

Same here. While the game was fun for the first 15-20 hours alone, I found it became quite droll shortly thereafter. But like you said, I've had the game preordered for a few months now and I'm hoping to find a bit more substance this time around. Only thing is, I wish Gearbox would allow PC players to play online with console players. I'm one of the only people out of all of my friends and family that actually has a capable PC rig, and therefore, I always miss out.. :/ Anyone els... #1.1.1

I don't agree with your low score at all. However, I will say that save for a few frustrating parts in the game, I was head over heels for Metro 2033. The PC version looked stunning and played just fine for me, as well. I cannot WAIT for Metro 2034, and I've been following its development with baited breath, especially with all of the negative news concerning THQ's financial standings. #1.1.1

I say Human Head take their game elsewhere. I understand they are beholden to their contract and ownership of the IP itself, but who says they can't do what they had intended to do under a new brand and name? Lord knows, the Kickstarter community would eat this up and tbh, we'd probably see a game far surpassing that of what Prey 2 could have been.

We support you, Human Head, and will stand by you and the development of a future game based off of Prey 2. Do not allow... #14

I snatched up an unopened copy about 9 years ago while I was working for EB Games for just a penny after it become discontinued and we were removing it from inventory. Ever since, it's sat on my shelf collecting dust, but its hand drawn graphics have always intrigued me even though I don't generally seek out fighting games to play. Although, I've allowed the equally bizarre Guilty Gear games to scratch that occasional itch over the years. But from the review/comments, I take it Jo... #3

Have both and haven't touched either to play a game in nearly 6 months, except to stream Netflix or watch movies/tv shows. PC is and has been my primary platform for years now. I have nothing against consoles either as I grew up playing nothing but - all the way back to the Atari, Commodore 64 and Sega MS.. it's just that if I can play the game on PC, I do. And if it means waiting another 6 months to a year for a port, I will.

And not to make this a discussion about P... #34.1
