Sure, you could, and if Sony did promote the game like that, is it really my fault if I think it looks bad?

It's their job to convince me to spend 60 bucks on this, I'm just reacting to what they're showing.

You would tell them to piss off as they slowly build their team over the years? Whaaaat?

It would also make me even more dissapointed about the fact that this is Sony's big fall game. Eventhough The Order nails the core TPS gameplay it is bland, unimaginetive and repetitive to a fault. Not even near worth all the praise. If it turns out that RaD is focusing most of it's resources on this game as an exclusive for this fall it means that Sony is nothing more than desperate to keep up with the competition.

I agree gameplay isn't looking the most exciting, but can we at least wait until E3, a few weeks away to judge? RAD wanted to make this game, I don't even see what Sony has to do with this, other than publishing the game. How does this make Sony desperate anyways?

If Sony let RaD pull something as stupid as this on purpose I'm completely done with them. I'm not going to buy a PS4 because of them. If they do this I'm going to boycott every single one of their products. I won't support them even if I happened to buy a PS4 at some point.

I genuinely can't tell if this part is serious or good sarcasm.

I don't know how you got adventure out of that gameplay. There was no freedom whatsoever.

Yeah, it's a three-minute video, and not representative of the entire game, but I think this IS the game. What adventure there is like a movie, with one pre-determined route.

People want a game they will enjoy, while you appreciate it, I can't find myself getting too excited.

And then the next scripted part where he has to drag an injured dude while shooting more random dudes running out on a balcony one at a time. None of which looks very fun in terms of gameplay

Now I'm curious, how much footage do you think we should get before being able to form an opinion about the gameplay? Because initially, when RAD had talked about what kind of game they were going for, people defending the game said we should wait for some gameplay footage before casting judgement on the game. Then we got that trailer with a few short gameplay shots, and people said that clearly wasn't enough footage to judge the gameplay. Now we have 3 minutes of gameplay footage, and you seem to be implying that clearly this isn't enough footage either.

The Thermite Rifle

The thermite rifle is the flashiest and most devastating of the bunch Ready At Dawn has revealed so far. Pellets packed with strips of aluminum iron oxide are blasted into the environment, which then break open into a cloud of glittery metal paper. A high temperature flare is then shot into the cloud, creating a chemical reaction that turns the cloud into a burning mass of melting metal. This devastating weapon is perfect for punishing enemies hiding behind cover.

The Arc Gun

This high-voltage weapon is where things start to get more experimental. The arc gun has electric wires and components spread along its long metal rods. Electrical current zaps along this contraption as it warms up, creating a Jacobís Ladder. This piece of bleeding edge technology shakes and smokes as it charges up a precise, long-distance bolt of energy. The way it zaps towards far off targets reminds us of Coleís eagle-eyed lightning blast from Infamous.

It just looks so frickin good. That hit detection is amazing! The particles, the character models, the setting.. that blue beam with the grey background looked so good!!The GRAPHICSSSS!! It is RaD's first attempt at a AAA home console game and I think they are doing an amazing job so far. The marketing for this game may not be the best and the gameplay they have shown so far is not mind blowing but it still looks good. This game prolly wont fulfill the dreams of those who want some kind of gameplay they have never seen before but from the perspective I am looking at it as a TPS action/adventure/horror? Game with a great story and setting. I think it has the potential to be one of the, if not the best, TPS out there.

The graphics look unbelievable but they showed a really weird place in the game. Drag a guy across the street while enemies run standing up without covers and practically yell," hey please shoot us while you slowly drag that man so we can fall of this building and show our awesome physics!"

But But But But!!! This game has monsters and stuff right!? So I'm sure the game is far more interesting. That being said you can't really blame people for pointing out the generic and dated game design shown in that little teaser.

yea i'm not super jazzed with the gameplay shown. it looks solid but not anything wow so far. But i'll wait to get more info and continue to form my buying interest in the game

i hope it all comes together into something great

TLOU was labeled generic and crap like that pre-release because of how it was presented also.

" just another zombie game "

" more of the same "

" uncharted with zombies "

But when the game released and people actually played it, well ... funny how it all changed.

RAD is not going for revolutionary gameplay here. Looks like they want to go for in-game CG quality graphics built inside an interactive / cinematic experience. We have seen portions of gunplay, portions of horror, portions of investigation, etc. etc. But we haven't seen much of the game flowing together yet. That is what will be saved for E3. What we do know though, RAD has laid the visual groundwork for something that could be incredibly entertaining if pulled off. We just get to see now whether they are able to pull it off.

This is RAD though. This is their first console game. Hard to believe seeing the tech used here, but this is their first rodeo with the big Sony studios. I say good luck to them, because I love the setting, the characters, the look, the weapons, etc. etc.

I plan on buying this and i find it to be an interesting game because of the setting and some of what was promised. Now, knowing it is a single player only game i expect something a bit more than the usual, but they're playing veeery safe with the footage and it's not helping. So hopefully what they'll show at E3 gives us everything about it otherwise i will be a bit of a let down.

It's okay to like things. It's okay to not like things. It's okay to make initial judgements based on released footage. Get that system stuff out of here.

That is so true. I feel like the setting/world in this game is nearly perfect. I even love the look and cast of characters. It would be so disappointing if this ends up just being an average to below average game in every other respect.

In my head I've always felt if the gameplay and encounter design matched the setting this could be a really special game. So far they haven't shown anything that gives me confidence that's gonna happen. I've still got some hope though.

I didn't, the moment they showed gameplay, it was clear that it wasn't Uncharted. And even if when people play it they change their minds, what's wrong about that? Why is it so important that people don't criticize the footage if they don't like it?

It's not funny how it changed, it's natural. And it's good, proves people are willing to give it a shot even if they don't like what they see (I've hyped The Last of Us since it was announced though). You don't have to protect the game.

Whenever I watch these early gameplay videos I'm trying to get a sense of what I'll be doing - as the player - and the kind of choices I'll make, either from moment to moment or as part of a longer term strategy.

In this video, with me as the player, I watch a cut-scene which then puts me into a firefight on street level. Cover to the left with allied AI using it, cover to the right with allied AI, and cover forward in the street with another allied AI using it. I guess I'd use the big ole empty cover in the middle for this firefight then.

Now, I'm behind cover, what are my choices? There doesn't seem to be any real need to advance as the enemies are all at height, and no reason to look for alternative cover spots for angles or defensive moves since nothing the enemy is doing looks to affect me here. So my choices are really in which order to take the enemy positions down in.

Once that's done the game literally asks you to fire your special weapon attack into the building's second floor so you can see a canned explosion and advance the checkpoint forward.

Then policeman guy gets downed and you're asked to attend to him. You get to move up and hit triangle, at which point you're now stuck on rails while a line of enemies will walk on to a rooftop in the open and fire on you at point blank range with their pistols. The choice here is the same, to prioritize who to shoot, only now you've got no cover to work with.

Once you take down those enemies in whatever order since they're all the same, you get another cut-scene and the story moves forward.

So, as a showcase of visuals, this video is fine. As a showcase for gameplay, nothing that's come out for this game looks engaging in the slightest. No interesting choices to be made whatsoever.

If there's a fun game in there, I'd love to see it at some point.

Nice post. I agree with you.

People, take note please. Instead of saying "last gen gameplay" (this term makes no sense for numerous of reasons I won't mention in this post) and "looks like another TPS", this is what you should do.

Explain yourself.
