So anyone getting it? I'm curious to see how well/poor it fares. Interesting concept.

Yeah! I'll grab it at the weekend most likely. I would have prefered Darkworks to have finish the game as I really enjoyed there last two games. It looks interesting and I always like the natural disaster like games alot.

I'm interested in it as well but I'm waiting for people's opinion on it. I don't want another Amy.

Do arcade games get reviews before there released?

I'm sure I've seen some before. But this ones meant to be a fairly sort of large title thingie to warrant one at least.

At this moment, it's got a 75 on metacritic. I'm seeing a lot of people saying the controls aren't solid, which is damming for a game that platforms. I still wanna see it in action, though.

This is like the appetizer for 'The Last of Us" in my eyes. Not that I know anything about that game, though. :P

well the thing is, some games with low scores could still be awesome. I loved God Hand for example while all the reviewers hated it. We never know till we actually play it. Hopefully a demo will come out.

Yeah, this will be one of those games I hunt down a "Let Play" of online for the first couple of minutes and see what happens and how the control is.

Why because of IGN hardly the most trustworthy of sites.

Because one guy doesn't like it? Is he your BFF or something?

It seems like it's getting 7s and 8s from everyone else. I'll give it a try.

He'll watch someone play it and then come here and act as if he did.

As is, I'm a little apprehensive to paying full price for this. But if the price drops, I'm pretty willing to see exactly how well they implemented all their post apocalyptic survival scenarios.

Be warned I'm enjoying the game but so far it's mostly climbing and jumping with very little in the way of combat it's a very slow paced game.

So I checked a few more reviews out when I decided I shouldnt just look at IGN since they're pretty shit. Seems all the things the ign guy complained about were pretty dumb. Sounds like a decent to good game. It's back on my list. Although I doubt I'll get to it this year at the rate I'm going with games. It's time will come.

Sony Europe suck though and nearly every PSN game is delayed compared to the XB Live version.

Sony everywhere except US suck you mean. We have american profiles on our system to get by their useless shit. Luckily there are places online that sell US psn card codes so you can buy stuff. Useless company.

Yep I played the demo and hated how he gets tired while climbing. No other game punishes you for climbing. Not sure why they thought this would be a good idea.

Because it's trying to simulate that during survival, exerting yourself is a good way to kill yourself. Whether or not that translates to fun game play is something else.

The game is alright. Not worth full price though. Reminds of older resident evil games in that you can't auto heal and when you get fucked up, you get fucked.
