Couldn't find a thread on this, looks brilliant. Played the first one briefly, had quite a bit of fun with it.

The grapple hook is supposed to be very versatile and bring loads of gameplay elements. Basically a really over the top GTA with quite a bit of destructible environments.

Demo is supposed to be out tomorrow, so won't be long til we can check it out for ourselves

Demo is out, just played it. Loads of fun, definitely recommend checking it out. Loved how you could string an enemy on to your vehicle and drive off with him dangling behind you :laugh:

Nice little physics playground with possibly the worst camera a sandbox game has ever had.

Took a bit of time to get used to like. Doubt I'll be buying it now, but will probably pick it up when the price drops and I'm starved for games.

I was going mad with the grappling hook, love that.

 

But I had more fun attaching things to gas canisters and launching them than I did playing the actual game.

I'd love for this to be the case, far too many good games out I've yet to play and pretty much a constant stream of high quality releases.

 

Starting to feel bogged down by them now ffs :(

30 minute time limit on a demo isn't good at all. Its intriguing, storyline seems alright and it seems like you have a lot at your disposal in this game. Big fan of the free roaming sandbox style, nothing will top Infamous for that though, at least on PS3 anyway.

This demo is so much fun!

 

also, on the PC you can have the demo running for 24 hours instead of the 30 min time limit!

I think we all knew there'd be zero story, its just about flying about and having over the top fun!

 

I'll prolly be buying this at some point :D

 

According to the reviews I've read though, the OTT action gets old after a few hours, and you're left with a pretty boring game. Kinda how I felt with Prototype...

The first one worth playing?

Not really. It was a fun game four years ago, but I can't imagine it having aged well. It's not like the story in this has anything to do with that one either.

Thinking about getting this, after watching someone playing it on Justin.tv

 

Worth it for 16 quid?

 

 

Probably not for £16. I got in the Steam sales, and it's good craic. I'd imagine you could find it for less...
