    lol @ you guys. :D

    i like playing 3rd person games with a controller. the only problem i had was for some reason i couldnt have both the controller and mouse hooked up at the same time. it wouldnt let me select anything. if i unplugged the controller, everything worked fine. same goes with the mouse. i had to unplug it just for the controller to work properly. something i can overlook, because i can disable my mouse pretty easialy. i just hope it gets fixed before i get the game.

    but tbh, i think this game has potential. once i get my new rig, im definitely buying this.

    Can't make my mind up about this one.
    I think it my be one of those games that hooks you in once you start playing it and there does seem to be a hell of a lot of content according to reviews, but the cutesy over bright visuals just put me off a bit.

    def one i would buy for ps3 if it has co-op but will wait for this to come down in price.

    shame they could have chosen a different graphics style. although actually star wars n wow are a bit cartoony but they grow on you.

    Doesn't support Eyefinity, which should be a must for all new released games. For this game I wouldn't pay 49EUR, maybe 20.

    That's mainly why I got disapointed with the game. Awful awful awful demo.

    Can't see myself buying a game with a demo like this.

    I find the game looks a bit better when forcing a negative lod in the control panel to sharpen textures. Also fxaa injector does a good job of sharpening it a bit more and toning down the post process bloom.

    all the images have a -1 lod bias forced (also I am not sure how brightness will look on other screens since I have mine set to print standards)

    I preordered this for 360 and am waiting its arrival (should be tomorrow). Interesting to see the spread of scores from Gamespot (7.5), Gametrailers (8.2), and IGN (9?). In my opinion Gametrailers usually has the most accurate reviews for me. Not always, but fairly close at the least. Looking forward to a game like this for a while.

    I always look out for the Gamespot reviews as they tend to tell it like it is rather bigging up and overrating games like a lot of sites.

    Generic fantasy? Sure, but hey, at least it has enjoyable combat, something Skyrim lacks.

    Frankly as far as review sites go I'm more for Giant Bomb than the others, it's where some of the old gamespot staff went to after the Kane and Lynch incident, the one where gamespot edited Gertsmann's review to make it look more positive.

    EDIT: Oh and they do quick looks of games too, generally between 20 minutes to 1 hour of gameplay if you want to know what a game looks like or plays like instead of just reading reviews.

    since it uses its own proprietary engine it would require a lot of testing of the different bit variables or we will have to wait for nvidia to support AO in KOA.

    good to read that gamespot review - i'll try this one anyway I think but only because I'm SO unbelievably bored! I'll probably feel let down though, most games are a let down these days!

    but yeah, after reading the gamespot review I really appreciate it! Not at all like ign reviews! Infact, I only use ign for their game database (which gamespot also have) and guff filler stories they make to spark riots for clicks, it's quite amusing sometimes.
