    Yeah, I'm happy it's finally going to make it out - it's been in development for quite a while. It's definitely got a certain something though, and hopefully it will have been worth the wait!

    Happy to hear no MP planned so I'll probably give this a whirl. Feel like it's been about for ages and now all of a sudden it's getting released. Very little hype around it, but that's not a bad thing. Will wait for reviews but it sounds interesting at least. I constantly kept mixing this up with Mutant Year Zero...

    Been following it for years but I am still on the fence. It is not worth a day one purchase. I will keep an eye on it and check reviews before deciding down the line.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,417 ✭✭✭recyclops


    will look at the reviews, it appears to be a massive open world filler game and I dont know if I have the stomach for one of them at the mo

    It does seem to take a good bit from Zelda and thats ok in my book.

    Yeah same here, zero gameplay footage or info for so long then only snippets the last few weeks.
    Seems to be kill this small group of enemies rinse repeat.
    Im just not convinced, will wait for reviews but i said the same about outriders , couldnt wait for reviews and was sorry i didnt.

    The art and UI direction is very weird for this one. Was watching a gameplay video and there’s this sort of hyper-realistic overall style matched with comic book style ‘BAM!’ and ‘ZAPPPP’ pop-ups during combat. Doesn’t seem to gel in the (admittedly brief!) clips I’ve seen so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,756 ✭✭✭Thecageyone


    Looks cool, but then as above the crappy cartoon bubbles for attacks is cringe, and there doesn't seem a lot to do outside of roam around to locate enemies then hack and slash your way past them. I had hoped more depth, like Jak and Dexter or Ratchet and Clank as it looks kinda like those titles.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,575 ✭✭✭ZiabR


    Just be careful is all I am saying. You have to remember that this is a game that has been delayed a number of times. It has been made by a studio with 18 employees and they want €60 for it. That is AAA territory. Many AAA games with 100s of staff working on them only charge €60-70.

    I hope it does well for the studio but caution is advised until the reviews drop etc.

    I rather not play anything than this monster role or something.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 80,188 Mod ✭✭✭✭Sephiroth_dude


    Not everyone's cup of tea but pew has a gameplay video up.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,575 ✭✭✭ZiabR


    It does look very fluid and the world looks detailed and beautiful. I am still going to wait for a few more full reviews to hit.
    My main issue at the moment is that Game Pass has SOOO much for me to play at the moment I have no idea where I would find the time to play this.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 80,188 Mod ✭✭✭✭Sephiroth_dude


    I pre ordered it, pre load is Sunday, excited to give it a go.

    its on a new clueless gamer with conan it actually looks quite fluid and fun, its the repetitiveness which cant be shaken from everything I have seen


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,998 ✭✭✭Stone Deaf 4evr


    As I said to the lads earlier, this has 'coming to gamepass' written all over it. going to wait and see.

    Aye, looks like that to me too, I'd play it on GP but doesn't look worth a buy, maybe for €20 tops

    I agree, I fully expect it to hit Games Pass in the coming months and I have so much to play at the moment, I am happy to wait.

    Review embargo lifts later today (Monday), cautiously optimistic, last video I saw looked like the b@stard child of Ratchet n Clank and Ghost of Tsunima


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,707 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Im a sucker for any action rpg game and this seems perfect for me, butter smooth combat animations really stand out in gameplay footage,huge world to explore, seems to have interesting loot and a seriously vast crafting system.
    It all seems like a win win but after Outriders im super cautious but still might preorder today before release :D:P

    Race and class selection will be important so these vids might help anyone trying to decide on a class to roll with.





  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 14,707 Mod ✭✭✭✭Dcully


    Reports from players will early access of it being incredibly repetitive with copy paste gameplay and no challenge combat, some saying its a kids game.

    I like to form my own decisions on games and tend to ignore reviews but ive had some big concerns with this one all along.
    Ill give it a week or two to learn more.

    Me too, so much so that I hadn’t realised this was what I thought mutant year zero was :/


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,602 ✭✭✭JimBurnley


    Early reviews averaging around 6/10. Main criticisms around mission design & gameplay getting repetitive v early. I'm leaning towards waiting for a sale on this


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,410 ✭✭✭Icyseanfitz


    Do any games live up to the hype anymore :(

    Ace Combat 7

    Sounds like we'll be better off waiting for the GOTY version (if it comes) with all the improvements. Like The Witcher 3. IIRC, some update of that game came out just before Blood and Wine and completely overhauled it and made it even feel different. So I'm hoping this will be the same. Because it does look good!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,575 ✭✭✭ZiabR


    Just wait... It will be coming to game pass. They will get whatever revenue they can from a month or two of sales and then Microsoft will pay them a chunk to add it to game pass.

    It has game pass written all over it. I will 100% give it a go on game pass.
