    Well, I gave the demo for this a run on my 360.
    I'm so glad I didn't get myself overly excited for it. The demo was terrible. I'd say the demo felt along the same lines as Brink or Bodycount.

    While I had worries earlier due to some gameplay videos looking rather dull (both in combat and other mechanics) and uninspired, I'll say those worries didn't fade after running through the demo. They are reinforced. Nothing about the demo stood out or felt overly "fresh" or interesting. More so tired and boring.

    I was originally rather interested due to it being developed by Starbreeze. I loved their previous titles (Riddick and The Darkness), so for a while I was willing to get behind this game based off that alone. But, upon learning that Starbreeze had lost some key people earlier (they went off to form Machinegames which was recently acquired by ZeniMax)... my faith faded some.
    As happens with some studios, when some members leave it can make a pretty big impact. And, if the demo is anything to be judged by... this isn't the same Starbreeze. Very sad to say, but I have absolutely zero interest in this game now.

    If it ever turns up for budget bin prices... maybe. But full price? Hell no.

    I aint surprised tbh,there hoping to sell a generically made game by slapping a classic gaming badge/product on it,i knew straight away it would fail without even playing it due to experience:)

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    Well it hasn't failed yet, could still review well and sell huge amounts.

    Not wanting to sound spiteful or anything, but i really hope it doesn't do well, as i don't want them thinking they can just dumb down every old franchise into a FPS and expect people to buy it.

    My impression so far is that it should be a shooter that incorporates the viciousness of the original. The problem these days is that apparently only AAA or indie sell if we believe Tim Schafer.

    True but i dont think anybody who played and liked the original from 1993 will buy this and if they do i think they will be very disappointed.
    Tim Schafer should stick to what he knows best..being a Teaboy for Ron Gilbert while making that 1990 classic.

    Rosario Dawson and Brian Cox in the vocal cast. With actual actors there must be some kind of story lol.

    Hmm - so we'll do COOP WL ?

    [edit]
    Amazon still has it on PREORDER, means you get a code for golden coop weapons & stuff. 4 hours to go i guess.
