Pretty cover but smacks of Edge tonguing Nintendo's balls again.

What was the general gist of the SH: Downpour preview? Is it looking any good?

I was in a bit of a rush to post before I had to get to work and the kids were rioting around me. There was some climbing, but they weren't hanging off me constantly or anything. However I have checked it and everything is right, no mistakes that I can see.

They seem hopeful.

Apparently it's a back to basics approach with the combat system changed from Shattered Memories. More combat, but not as much as in previous games. One weapon at a time that will degrade and an emphasis on incapacitating enemy's before trying to escape.

Killzone 3 a 7? Didn't expect that. Was under the impression they'd made big improvements in all the right criteria.

Isn't 7 a really good score from Edge?

Just finished reading it just now. Same old shit just with different colours it would seem.

Some quotes...
Guerrilla rarely allows you to truly put the AI to the test: you engage the Halghast on the game's terms, not your own.

It's some of the most polished, intense and impactful linear shooting you'll find, but it's still just linear shooting.


Apparently the jet pack is severely rationed and hardly used past the introductory level designed around it's abilities. Which is a shame as it had the potential to be a great addition.
