    I thought it was very atmospheric and the animation on the big creatures was impressive, but as a game I found it fairly dull.

    When this first came out people were wetting thier pants over it, I thought it was very dull gameplay wise, Just goes to show people are suckers for fancy graphics, Many a good game gameplay wise has been slated on here for a graphics glitch :rolleyes:

    It reminds me of Jet Force Jemini on the N64. Some nice graphical effects...
    Not sure I'll buy it though.... Then again not much floats my boat on the 360 at the moment..... :)

    I thought it was great and will be picking it up when it gets released. Kind of reminds me of an Anime called Blue Gender.

    The second level was pretty fast paced and had a lot going on, not just fancy visuals.

    I liked this game, looking forward to some 32-player multiplayer action.

    Just played the demo, thought it was good, not too complicated to control which is what i like. Not too keen when there are too many button combinations etc.

    Like a few others here, I wasn't too keen on the demo, either of the levels. However if it does support 32 players online, that does sound promising.

    Must admit I loved the looks(as in the setting/style) of this game & couldn't wait to play the demo, hopefully by the time it gets released it'll be alot better.

    I thought the graphics and atmospherics were excellent, the genre of game really appeals to me too. I juts thought it felt a bit lacking in any real gameplay. Dead rising seemed better.

    Agree, it was really atmospheric, i can see why some people don't like it, it is a bit shoot shoot shoot if you know what i mean, wheras in graw you would need to think abit more, (i'm useless at graw) :thumbsup:

    Not sure if it's been posted elsewhere here, but there is a TGS trailer up at www.xboxyde.com/news_3485_en.html. I guess it'll be released over live soon. It looks totally amazing, both single and multiplayer :eek:

    I'll be going back and playing the awesome demo again :thumbsup:

    I really enjoyed the demo. Yes, you do a lot of shooting, but erm, it's a game where you shoot things :).

    I'm sure we'll see a lot more variety with weapons and enemies, don't forget the demo we got was very early, the actual game isn't out until early 2007, so there is probably a LOT more added to the game.

    Battles on foot, big weapons, mech battles, big huge alien bosses......ahhhhh, brings back old school memories :) Heck, one can pick up and use a Mechs gattling gun, surely it's worth the purchase to be able to do that? :D

    It was like Cybernator on the SNES but without the fun.

    I found the game very atmospheric and even cinematic, but it just seemed dull somehow. I realy want this game to be good though, because potentially it could be excellent played very loudly in 5.1 on an HD screen.

    The latest trailer looks anything but dull :thumbsup:

    Hopefully the forthcoming multiplayer demo will be a bit more exciting:)

    I was reading the other day on IGN i think it was, that the devs have said that the final game will look alot better graphically than the demo did.

    And the demo looked superb so it should look mind-blowing when it's released.

    This is the sort of game I like and with live multiplayer I think it will get a lot of playtime :)

    Does anyone know if there is live co-op at all?
