ReCore Gameplay Impressions | PAX West 2016 thezeroreview

ReCore is a game that has become a topic of contention as of late, being a collaborative development effort between Armature Studios and, most promptly, Comcept who’s latest claim to fame has been the underwhelming Mighty No. 9. With Keiji Inafune being held at the stake, despite his minimal involvement, there is an evidently faltering confidence for ReCore to deliver. Having just walking away from the PAX West 2016 demo, those concerns can be quashed immediately.

Nice preview...looking forward to it. Check out this newly released 15min gameplay clip.


FITgamer2871d ago

Watched it earlier, don't know if it's just the guy playing, but the combat looks pretty boring.

NoPeace_Walker2871d ago

It sure looks way better than No Man's Sky though.

EpicSandwich2871d ago

Combat is actually one of the key aspects that gets me excited. You can charge your shots, this guy wasn't doing it though.

FITgamer2871d ago

@NoPeace_Walker That's subjective and not relevant to topic at hand.

NoPeace_Walker2871d ago (Edited 2871d ago )

No it is not subjective as the combat in Recore looks way better with more variety and require actual strategy than the combat mechanic found in NMS. It is a fact.

christocolus2871d ago


Really? I think it looks great. The previews have also been very positive and majority of those who have played it liked the solid gameplay mechanics.

Looks like another Metroid and Scalebound without dragons. I'll be checking this out on PC

poppinslops2871d ago

Check out the big brain on Bruce... is that a dictionary in your pocket?

May be a nit pick, but I'm not a fan of the obtrusive combo counts in games anymore. The only title that I can think of that pulled it off decently from recent memory was the Arkham series (and even that would be better w/o it). There's just way too much HUD in this game. It's almost comical really. If you include a narrative of any sort, let us be immersed in that over a bunch of numbers & letters on a screen constantly obscuring everything. I mean watching the video it looks like at any given moment we will only have an unfettered look at around 33% of the screen at any given time.

Action game looks better than an exploration game....ok. but what action game does it look better than?
Just asking. I like what I've seen so far, just wondering why you'd pick nms as something to compare it to.

nix2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

bullet sponge enemies exists because the devs are talentless or lazy af.

Edit: it's got nothing to do with this game... It goes for any game. I also hate enemies when they multiply unnecessarily.

FITgamer makes a subjective comment then dismisses someone elses comment for being subjective.


game4funz2870d ago

Wow. You called out someone else for being subjective and not relevant yet youre comment is also subjective and his is relevant since it does talk about the combat in recore.

Kosic2870d ago

I agree with you. Games lighting looks great, combat looks a tad meh and the camera controls look horrible. I'm thinking of skipping myself. Shame as I didn't expect this sort of game from the original trailer.

Gazondaily2870d ago

The visuals are shit tbh. Looks so last gen in many areas.

Let's see how the gameplay pans out though..

Looks pretty good to me. Lots of action. I won't be bored that's for sure. The game is only $40.

sammarshall1022870d ago

Yup at $40 I'm hoping it's good and reaches more people then we can get a Recore 2

christocolus2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

and the price is ok... I'm going to be busy this holiday. Gears 4, Recore, Destiny:Rise of Iron, Forza Horizon 3, FFXV, Mafia 3, BF1,Dead Rising 4 and maybe COD:IW

game4funz2870d ago

Already have it pre ordered physical copy from the Microsoft store. Also getting 15$ credit back. Its awesomely priced and the benefits for xbox live rewards helps make this a no brainer.

darksky2870d ago

It looks repetitive. Can get boring after 30 mins if it's all like this video.

thanks for posting the vid,the gameplay isn't the smoothest but it is fun and seems easy to get into, graphics remind of the that Ninja theory game Enslaved: odyssey to the west. Obviously this game looks better but it's giving me the same vibe.

mark_parch2870d ago

combat looks really good, the person playing wasn't using his strafe dash or charge shots

lelo2play2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

ReCore looks interesting. From what I've seen so far, looks like a 7.

christocolus2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

I hope it turns out great...I'm thinking most reviews will fall between 7.4 and 8.4

sammarshall1022870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

Yep 7 and 8's are what I'm expecting

I'm hoping it scores higher

Great character design for lead protagonist but the game itself looks terribly average... will be forgotten about within 2 weeks of release.

Neonridr2870d ago

are you talking about this game or No Man's Sky? :P

... too soon?
