Single and multiplayer gameplay captured ahead of October release
im really not feeling this game at all. something is lost In the gameplay I just cant get my finger on it.
Aceitman not impressed by an xbox exclusive, that's a surprise. /s OT: This game is insane, reminds me a lot of ratchet and clank meets JSR and that is a good thing to me. I just hope they have meaningful missions and that campaign isn't just kill wash repeat. As ling as the SP is rewarding and in depth (as insomniac games usually are) I cannot wait. Considering all the positive previews and press from people who actually played the game I have no doubt this game will deliver.
Yeah, the game looks awesome and creative. It's nice to see something new and an open-world game place a focus on both mobility and movement systems, as well as some genuinely creative and interesting weapons in comparison to every other game out there. I love how colorful it is as well, really goes to show just how important good art design is in games. I don't have an Xbox One though, so I'm really hoping that Insomniac ports this to PC sometime in the future perhaps (seems 50/50 considering DR3/Ryse/Titanfall made the jump) because I would love to play this game.
I think its the bouncing around like everything is made out of trampolines perhaps, I can imagine it would get old fast.The animations when they are just moving around seems like they are on roller-blades as well.
bingo-mrmagoo123 @ nicksetzer1 I don't care if it was multiplatform or just ps4 or 3 it does not appeal to me at all mrmagoo123 hit it write on the spot. its just not there gameplay wise looks like it will get old fast and frustrating. I felt the same way about fuse it wasn't appealing to me. and from the prorder charts im not alone. and @ nickster how about leaving out the exclusive crap out I don't like it its my opinion and I put it in the reply that's what its for. I said nothing like a fanboy I said nothing about it being on x1 , so it looks like ur the fanboy with ur remark. game on man. and the ony thing that's like ratchet and clank is the sliding part and the monsters remind me of resistance. that bouncing thing and sliding back and fourth is not looking like fun. even the camera seems to fall behind on following the character.
@aceitman I hear you, clearly not every person will love this game, I was just joking about the fact that literally EVERY xbox exclusive so far you have been the first person to comment and always display disinterest. If you aren't interested why click? So far you have "not been feeling" (and commented about such) for ryse, dr3, forza horizon2, forza 5, and titanfall. (And have praised certain other games) I was just sarcastically pointing that out.
@nicksezer, omg really I'm the 1st to comment in all x1 exclusive, get a life and nice try on trying to make me look like I'm trolling. I don't like the game get over it and stop the fanboy bs.
@aceitman I agree! i'm not feeling it either, and i like insomniac games.
This game releases in 2weeks where is the Hype??? Don't Disagree just being honest.
There isn't much hype for this game. The pre orders reflect this. I hope it does well though.
There is hype for this game but not to much which is good cause look at what has happened to all the games that have been hyped this gen.
Not everything needs too be hyped too death BUT I have seen a bunch of advertising for this game
@Toiletsteak They reviewed well or averagely (7 - 8.5), but sold very well. Titanfall: 3.5m sold Watch Dogs: 6.6m sold Destiny: 6.5m sold I don't think any of them are complaining in regards to sales, which is really the end of for most of these studios/developers/publishers. SO isn't getting any hype right now, and it doesn't look like it's going to be a big seller. I was interested in the game, I have a XBO, and I enjoyed Ratchet and Resistance, but something seems off about this game to me too. It seems kind of like Ratchet which I should like, but it also seems like Gotham City Imposters with all the bouncing around and goofiness (which I though was a decent game, but only gave it time because it was free on PS+). It's a rental right now for me, and I'll see form there, and hopefully I'm wrong and will enjoy it, but I don't see it being a big seller for the XBO, it just doesn't seem like an Xbox type of game.
I have to agree. The gameplay looks really monotonous imo. Though I do love the artstyle.
I totally agree. I love the art style/vibe, the humour seems fun and light hearted but whenever I see actual gameplay, part of my excitement gets put on hold. VERY curious to see reviews on this one. Crossing my fingers that it lives up to it's potential.
If this game was on PS4 I would pick it up. It looks fun and I love the attitude. That live action commercial was dumb but all the gameplay Ive seen, ESPECIALLY the idea of the locomotion movement, is just awesome. I would have a ton of fun with this game....just like Dead Rising 3......BUT just like DR3, I'm not buying an xbox one for it
I was really really exited about getting it right up until the moment I played it at eurogamer. None of the stuff is that great. It plays just like a normal FPS and the sliding and shit seems like more of a gimmick than an actual gameplay feature. The gunplay is OK but is really nothing special.
IMO it's borderline on being an on rails shooter. I mean clearly you do not have to aim, just look in the general direction of the enemy and squeeze the trigger.
Funny that from what I saw people spent very little time on the rails :P it was really hard to aim when on them and actually transfering from one to another was also not very intuitive. Not really sure what the disagrees are, its not a bad game just not half as good as people were hyping it to be.
I feel the same way. The art style is interesting, the colors are bright, and the explosions are huge...but it looks like you would get bored with this game after 30 minutes. I expect that it will sell a lot to owners of the Xbox One...but then end up in a bargain bin within 6 months. I expect very mediocre reviews when this comes out...based on what I am seeing.
i dot either,i want to but i just cant see what the hype is about. not sure if its the fact there is so much grinding(rails)or something else but i cant put my finger on it either
aceitman -- I'm with you. I'm watching the video, and the whole time I'm thinking... Something is missing from this game. I hope they release some better game play video in the future. I was looking forward to this game.
Sunset overdrive - looks amazing, considering the overwhelmingly positive previews and exhilarating gameplay, this is going to be a blast.
I like the idea of this game and it's a great base to build off of but something about the gameplay, seems like it would bore me after like 20-30 minutes. I love the art style and what it's trying to do, but it doesn't seem as fun as I was hoping it was going to be.....not that I've played it yet. I'll probably most likely get it at a reduced price some time next year.
that mp gameplay looks just crazy.
I'm afraid the mission variety will get repetitive, but man is that chaos beautiful. If they can surprise me with varied content, this game will be a winner in my book.
I hope it doesn't turn out to be another second son. I feel like the multiplayer will need to be spot on to hold peoples interest.
I think the multiplayer alone will keep it from Second Son territory. I just hope all the co-op missions aren't go to this alley and kill x amount of enemies. I hope they encourage some teamwork along with the mayhem.
Really looking forward to some good ol' co-op fun with my mates.
The size of the map and the verticality is very impressive. I wonder if we'll see a demo like FH2? Between this and FH2, October will be filled with many great hours of gameplay.
The visuals are lovely, and I'm a sucker for highly saturated color palettes done right, which these most certainly are. I honestly thought this game would be much faster and more frantic, though. There's like a rocket train chase at the beginning, and it looks like they're driving in a school zone. Then when the girl first jumps to the ground, there's a sluggish recovery, and then some sluggish running and sluggish combat. Just a little bit more speed is all it would take (obviously too fast would be unplayable). The e3 2013 on rails trailer had that tiny bit more speed, and it looks like a much more fun speed: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Also, it would fit better artistically. The presentation is so explosive and in your face, and exploding teddy bears, and they have such a frantic vibe going, with the candy colored palette, and I think the gameplay speed is the only thing lagging behind from completing that perfect cohesion.
too bad they went with the whole kid fruity color look, looks like itll get boring fast, they should have kept the last of us style they were saying they had, probably gonna flop
Wow...... an unbiased comment. /s
at the conference.. when i heard insomniac were making xbox exclusive game, i was heartbroken. i loved the resistance series. then they revealed the trailer. i was heartbroken again. it was that bad. i was like "what the fack....." i truly feel sorry for the insomniac. there is something wrong about this game. something very very wrong. i just can't feel it.
This game is funny and awesome at the same time. Pre ordered.
the gamie gamieness of this game is a gamers perfection can't wait
This game looks insane! So glad they went with more characters on screen and animations. It truly looks like a wild ride that I may never want to get off. Then MP and co op?! Hell yeah. Its a game that can laugh at itself and the people who can't grasp the conscept of just letting go and having some fun with the rules. Only a few weeks!
Geez. I do think the game looks good, but you people sure do get mad when someone says they dont like it. There are only so many freakin people out there. Do you really think everyone will like the same thing? Not everyone is a retarded fanboy you know. Reasonable opinions still exist
Just not here and not that often. Sure people may not like it but for the ones that let a platform get in the way of their enjoyment because of loyalty to some brand. Well they are blind, stupid and probably pretty boring. Their loss I guess. I can't see them enjoying the game anyway. This game looks like its made for those who don't take life too seriously and like to have fun.. So no wonder they don't like it. Its not for those types anyway.
I pre ordered the sunset overdrive x1 bundle, x1 without a kinect, one of the games i really want and as a bonus the x1 is in white. Happy days
LOL @ the fanboys going out of their way to inform us that they are not interested in the game. Cool. We get it. Now try and tell it to somebody that cares. Usually when Im not interested in something I simply dont comment on it. but I guess thats just me. Anyways....Looking forward to picking this up on the 31st.
ROFL That's not the best part... we all know that SSO has been getting great previews... At this moment there are 2 LBP3 articles on this site... and nobody is on them even the trolls are not interested in the only PS4 exclusive left in 2014 they are all here because they are more interested in SSO
