    Am I the only one thinking the movie looks like the STAR WARS PREQUELS all over again????

    The computer generated scenery and fx look amazing at first glance, but underneath it all it seems like a big budget remake of Delgo (see my user pic/MY "avatar").

    Spend some time with it.
    I found some stuff the 2nd time through that I missed the 1st.
    It turned dark after the hammerhead deal.
    Check your map for areas to explore.

    that was i, i posted that night shots.

    the game is not linear, you dont need to follow a path, explore the map a bit and you will find what i found (vehicles,etc)...

    I think i have a different demo. cause i did explore, i saw no "hammerhead" i know what your talkn about though. My demo also has no where to explore, like you cant go anywhere off a narrow path, when i try i run into invisible walls. theres only a couple parts that Y off but come out at the same end. There are many areas where it looks like i should beable to walk that way but my character runs in place and cannot pass.

    cause i did try to go everywhere i could but its all invisible walls, maybe my demo was an early release, got it from some german website. there are no vehicles except the jet at the beginning. ithe map doesnt seem to show any areas except a narrow path.

    Good Lord, I'm expecting Jar Jar Binks to pop out of that jungle screaming any minute now.
    Just keep in mind that James Cameron and George Lucas are very good friends. ;)

    i tried the singleplayer demo on PC, was quite good, not much to go on tho,
    but graphics where nice, could need a bit more colour in terms of what the
    movie looks like, maybe digital vibrance will fix that. The marine gameplay
    was very Lost Planet style. Fun and action filled. Looking forward to playing
    more of it, when i need mindless action fun.


    at 1920x1080, 4xAA, dx10, vsync on, i believe i had on average 30fps.
    did dip below at times tho.

    Oohh, I will have to check out this game. I am a little disapointed that it's not Avatar: The Last Airbender, but it still looks pretty cool, especially because it uses the Dunia engine.

    I loved Far Cry 2 (much more than the first, though that's not hard to do), so hopefully this game will feel somewhat like it.

    eh was ok, dunno if i am sold. linear levels yea the game does a decent job of disguising that fact and the fact you can go verticle into the tree branches giving more a sense of freedom than you might expect. vehicle control felt decent at lest outside the hovership at the very start but buggys and such worked pretty well with the kb.

    gfx looked decent, but could be better i think. my gut prediction based off the demo a decent arcade run in gun linear shooter, but nothing special about a 7.0 score.

    i'll agree except honestly, there are not hardly any games that look any better, maybe just different due to environment and for such a lush jungle, you really can't beat it considering the frame rate...Crysis nor FC2 had this thick and lush looking jungle, however its not sandbox enviro either, but i get just over 40FPS maxed out so not sure if pushing graphics more would really be beneficial to anyone or not.
    i think i'll still buy it though, its enteraining enough to attempt to beat it and thats all you can ask out of any game considering the prices

    Played the demo, but didn't like it. Graphics were ok I guess, not that great really. But meh, I just didn't dig it.

    Played the demo and enjoyed it! It reminds me of Lost Planet, which I also enjoyed. I like how you can get upgraded weapons and armor and the environment is really nice. I'll probably pick it up eventually once I finish playing the tons of games I'm playing now.

    Yikes, not very good.

    Kinda expected, i didn't really enjoy this that much, might wait to see the movie, always makes a game better when you enjoy the movie as you can sometimes overlook the flaws, course i will probably not like the movie that much:wanker:
