lol lucas arts should be ashamed. Game is a sandbox game and it looks better than force unleashed. Force unleashed was trash and aside from the force lighting thats where all similarities end. How can you say combat system is similar thats like comparing Tekken to Mario. Just because you can jump in both doesn't make them similar in anyway. Aside from force lightning i see nothing else i can compare the two games with
Well I think it's more the physics manipulation not the combat that draws the similarities.
inFamous does look really similar to Force Unleashed...and yes the game could have been better but it wasn't as bad as people said. The only problem I had with Force Unleashed though was the lock on, that's about it. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
the powers in the game inFAMOUS have more depth to them. The electricity based powers are effected by the environment, metal objects intensify electric attacks, your powers are extracted from electrical sources (ie phone booths), and the electrical powers are used in various ways not found in Force Unleased. That game's character simply uses a lighting bolt to 'zap' enemies... NOTHING MORE. Ignore this article, another BS post by this plague of Xbox fanatics.
Infamous is awesome and has been in development for several years.
The force unleashed would of been a great game if only they made the lightsabers ACT like lightsabers.Instead of baseball bats -_- No decapitation FTL.
I still have force unleashed and i still think its trash and i am a HUGE star wars fan. As far as combat goes there are simply no similarities between them beyond lightning. The art direction is similar though and both main characters are bald
Not for me
yeah...me too...I don't really see what the big deal is, although I haven't really followed this title... i'm also on full killzone 2 mode as far as visuals...this looks very PS2 like in comparison imo...but that may be an unfair judgement...as nothing really compares to killzone 2 anyway...
I'd say "PS2-like" is a bit of a stretch even comparing to KZ2. Same trailer is available in GT as well. http://www.gametrailers.com... And I think it looks fantastic. I like the open world and fast-paced free running style moves. At the end of the movie there are quite a lot of explosions, but there isn't much framerate drop, and i'm surprised about that as well. I'm really excited about this and prototype.
The story in The Force Unleashed was epic.
will be the beginning of a new sucessful franchise on the PS3.
game looks a bit empty not a lot going on. don't understand whats so good about it.
Sucker Punch is making it. Thats what so good about it. The combat looks like Uncharted combat with electricity instead of guns. Oh and Greg Miller also said it is awesome. Just watch the videos on IGN. They're inCredible.
Have seen the video and i still don't get what so great about it. The streets seems very empty not a lot going on. but thats just how i feel from what i'm looking at.
This game looks like GTA IV.. GTA IV won GOTY some game sites. This game will be GOTY 2009. Oh wait, it doesn't have sex, drugs theme.. not a chance! :)
I've been waiting for a darker superhero-esqe game and I really believe this is it.
- Ability to do a emperor style constant stream - Ability to do something other than zap people, maybe telekenesis? With his electicly altered mind? - Really detailed videos on how manipulative the enviornment really is with the electricity. That alone could provide hours of fun if you can line up people with light poles or something. They have covered this verbally, but I think they really need to show another level of depth. I see the Light Grenades/Super Light Fall/Zap. I remember him mentioning flight?(anyone else, perhaps I was high) I don't know, anything to break up the walk zap zap zap, walk zap. They have been saying there is going to be more in the game, but so far. Zap zap zap. The free running looks perfect though. Looks far more natural than uhm Assassins creed, and I am very very very impressed by that. Your hands/feet are always accurately placed on whatever objects you touch. The graphics are pretty amazing too for a game of this size, and thats not the general Sandbox rules of restriction. Parts of this game is looking like it could just be a Third Person Shooter. These videos have revealed a good level of post processing/motion blur/shader detail which Im sure looks a bit more crisp in a better resolution, but its there. I really think the addition of guns would have been nice, or at least some sort of device to supress your electricity for a short while so you could soften up targets with different methods of play. The only t hing that makes me think this is because they are selling it as a sandbox game, even though maybe not intentionally? And usually Sandboxing does require a bit more of a wider skillset.
But i see it this way... if im a developer showing preview gameplay footage of my game am i gonna show everything the game has to offer? or will i give you a brief glimpse? i dont speak for sucker punch but thats what i would do anyway, day one purchase for me "in sucker punch i trust"
I think the game will sell real well,get very good to great reviews,and be quite fun for most gamers.... I would like to see more on it,game depth wise,story and overall scope. I do not think it will be a game that will be regarded as highly as the GOW3's and Resident evil 5's and Killzones 2's of the gaming World,but still be a real good seller and quite a bit of fun for most gamers... I will give it a try for sure.But have to admit I still wish it was a new PS3 version of Sly.But thats just me and my love for quirky stylish platformers....
Would of been cool if they made him a elemental wrecking machine. Fire, ice, wind, water, ect.. = Sweetness. But the game looks fun as it is already. Cant wait till this drops
i was thinking that could be infamous 2. i dont no enough about the story but basically his powers manifest, allowing him to use different elements
Yeah I really want a game thats a mix of this and Highlander (take other peoples fire/wind/etc powers). I'm really looking forward to this game though. THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!
first video at 1:00 that was epic!
... I think it looks much more like Crackdown then The Force Unleashed. Cell Shading, Open World, Superpowered hero, Pedigree devs..... Would have been a much better comparison.
i still dont get why ppl are so psyched about this game yes you can do alot of electrical moves and jump around, but to each his own as for me nah
every time I watch the new videos it just feels like they are hiding alot from the game like all coles heavier electric move's and alot more.. plus i look back at the later videos and cole is fighting some big @ss robot looking thing that looks so epic.. so i think they are hiding a chunck of information from us...
Doesnt look a good as Crackdown... Think this game is a possible miss im afraid.
LOL. You gotta troll harder than that, you're makin' us laugh man!
This is actually quite a lot tamer than i first thought and the pace is a little plodding after watching a heap of Prototype vids It wont be cr&p but it lacks wow for now
a few key things that need to be noted about it, and why it's so anticipated: 1) It's being developed by Sucker Punch. They are the folks that brought us the excellent Sly Cooper series. You can probably expect likable characters, spot on controls, a nice dose of humor (even with the dark setting in inFamous), and at the LEAST, a good time. 2) EVERYTHING that has been show of Cole's powers in inFamous so far has been stated as being his LEVEL ONE powers. They want to keep a lot of things under wraps, so they can surprise the gamer. As the game progresses, Cole's powers evolve to more and more powerful forms. 3) There may actually be a multi-player component to be revealed soon, and definitely before the games release. Sucker Punch has been coy when asked about multi-player, and simply responds, "we aren't talking about those things yet, but more will be revealed). If there is ANY kind of co-op, with a varied power pool set for you and your friends to choose from, then I'm there, end of story. and those are really only the key things i can think of. most people already know that you can be good or bad, and you can suck the electric energy from enemies and civilians alike. you restore power by draining energy from your surroundings (ie, power lines), and Cole can "fly"/hover, using his electricity. for me, being a Sucker Punch game alone qualified inFamous as a "one to watch" title. and that's good enough for me. i think it's looking GREAT, and can't wait to get my hands on it this summer.
there better be more variety in attacks than just lightning, otherwise it will get boring real fast
