Naw, Silent Hill HD is god awful. ZoE's is bad. Like Splinter Cells, it's tolerable if you want to play it but you could get the non-HD versions and emulate/play those on PC and get a better performing game.
Didn't play the ZoE demo. For the E3 demo, it was a tutorial area you were running through and learning the slicing mechanics. There were cardboard targets (enemies and hostages) and watermelons. It was a bad demo, poor framerate, poor textures and the game froze up on me while slicing a huge watermelon into hundreds of pieces. Thus having to hard reset my demo and just as I was about to get back in, I was asked to vacate the demo station.
Being a huge Platinum Games fan and Bayonetta being the greatest action game to mankind, imo anyways, the demo left a bad taste in my mouth. But like I said in my previous post, I have faith that PG will deliver.
Funnily enough, this is exactly why my mate loved the E3 demo but didn't like the ZOE bundled demo. He too locked up the demo by spending most of his time meticulously cutting an object into as many pieces as he could. Low and behold, the ZOE bundled demo now has object cut limitations to prevent crashes.
I guess I was more miffed about the fact that I spent three and a half hours in line to play the demo only to have said demo lock up on me and then asked to leave without getting much time to play it. Next week should change all that.
Wonder if its the same demo as the ZOE HD one. I have to assume it is. Two demos would be a bit mad. Needless to say, I have yet to play it and I am hyped beyond hype. The region locking of the JPN one had me grumpy for days
I hope it's a new demo. I can't play the ZoE demo without the damn thing locking up on me. And no, it wasn't patched you fuckers. I downloaded the patch and reinstalled the demo, and the same shit happens everytime.
All I'm hoping for is a new trailer showing the weapon switching off... But I'm sure the 3 stages are just the VR or training stage, land on beach stage, and then the boss fight... (though crossing fingers that it is not that so I have something new to play!)
