    You know I tried the demo for this game and just wasn’t feeling it. I don’t know why, I guess I am just sick of running and shooting. Am I missing something?

    I tried the demo too but wasn’t impressed by it. The cover system is okay, nothing new though.

    I am feeling shooter fatigue and this game looked really boring on the surface. The demo was surprisingly great. The action mechanics were just really fun and unique. The second stage of the mega boss (you first shoot the legs/core and then arms/core) was too hard and frustrating for me. That thing does one shot kills right through cover.

    The characters and dialog and cut scenes seem like they are purposefully imitating 85% Metal Gear Solid and 15% Devil May Cry, and it is very hokey and cliche, skippable stuff. The polished action mechanics and awesome graphics are what sell the game

    I’m wondering how the full game compares to the demo. Is there a lot more to the full game? Is it challenging without being ridiculously hard?

    yeah, i was a little underwhelmed too. maybe i was too excited. i guess i was hoping for a more fast paced environment, where things are moving and you have to be quick to survive…i don’t know what i’m talking about.
    graphics are really good, though. i just felt a little constrained by the suit i guess, you can zip around for sure, but walking is kind of slow, and maybe i just suck, but can you not jump?

    Nope no jumping, which is lame I think. The guy can slide on the floor, do a bunch of flips but he can’t jump?

    yeah, especially since he slides with a rocket pack! where’s my awesome rocket pack supported double jump with a somersault or something?

    The game is too tiring on my eyes. Some fresh fps action, but too flashy for my age. /goes back to BFBC2.
