Rosbjerg Posted June 18, 2009 Share Posted June 18, 2009 Anyone played it yet? (linky) It suffers from some rather annoying issues (irrelevant and atmosphere-breaking minigames), but overall it's actually a pretty cool game.. It's the first time I've actually felt like an unstoppable supervillian/anti-hero in a game - and it's absolutely amazing to cause utter and complete chaos and destruction to military and infected foes alike - which you do all the time.. Imagine a playground city like in the GTA series, with a dash of Assassins Creed (with all it's great and annoying parts) and a character which is kinda like a mix of Hulk and Venom. Without getting into a lengthy review I'll say that they've done a few interesting things - if you consume certain people (they will be marked by an icon), who know pieces of what is happening to you and the city, a short movie will play - much like in Mass Effect when you get subjected to the Prothean beacon - which adds small pieces to the bigger puzzle.. You also get points, from destroying, consuming and completing missions, which you need to spend on new powers, but there are so many tools of destruction and combinations of moves that even if you only had half of them you would still feel like a total bad-ass killing machine. The powers are balanced well enough and you need to use different strategies for different situations and having such a big arsenal at your disposal makes you feel well-equipeed for any situation. And this plays well into the overall feeling of unstoppable monster mayhem. The background is clich Fortune favors the bald. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
