Boy was this a game a disappointment for me. This was one of those games that looked soooo damn good on paper, but ultimately failed to live up to expectations.

Glad to see a new IP like this sell well despite it's short comings.

I think it was also a case of the developer selling us a promise that didn't quite live up to expectation. I think it ultimately failed on the single player being nothing more than bot matches from the MP.

Truly disappointing.

Definitely. It didn't come anywhere close to what I was expecting, but I did have fun with it. I really enjoyed the movement system. I thought the character design and back story was good too. I wouldn't mind a sequel with a dedicated single-player campaign and greater focus on the story.

I think it's biggest problem was the lack of players. I'm surprised it sold so many copies because I think I encountered maybe ten other players in the time it took me to get the platinum trophy.

I saw it coming. I looked at a couple gameplay sessions and I instantly knew it was gonna be decent, but fail to live up to what the blind gamers in the comments were raving about.

Same thing happened with Rage. I was saying it looked decent but everyone was like "It's teh idz! They invents the fps!"

Unbelievable that a piece of s**t game like this sells more then 2.5 Million copies.

This is another entry in the "Sales Do Not Equal Quality" file. I had such high hopes for this game. Brink and Dead Island were my two biggest letdowns this gen.

Well it was selling for $10 new at many locations. If anything it goes to show that price is the greatest factor in determining if a game sales or not.

Price is everything. Nintendo knows this and that's why they always pwn newbs.

Well it was selling for $10 new at many locations. If anything it goes to show that price is the greatest factor in determining if a game sales or not. And I guess graphics as well.

It's also another entry in the "EPIC VGChartz Fails" scrapbook.

Publisher reports: 2.5 million sales, VGBSChartz: 1.59.

Only off by a million, but I guess they're the best we got, so we should continue relying on a source that's off every single time a publisher releases sales.

they don't count digital and that is likely shipped not sold to consumers. Still VGC has never been all that accurate.

Sad...any chance they will make a good sequel ?

honkyjesus2399d ago

Bought it, liked it.

Funny how major franchises with broken online day one never catch heat for it.

brettyd2399d ago

brettyd2398d ago
