    Combat seems very generic, repetitive, and underpowered. Definitely needs a demo to get me to consider buying.

      I’ve seen videos which shone more light on the combat. A demo should really give you a better idea how it flows and works.

      Completely agree. The story and art direction don’t look like they’re breaking any new ground either.

      The whole thing feels like Assassin’s Creed X Blade Runner.

    Poor marketing by Capcom, this game had potential out the door

  • Heavenly_King

    If the design of the main character was better, I would be interested in the game, but as it is right now I dont care.

    sweet, an original new IP featuring an interesting female protagonist at the end of a console life cycle. This will be rewarded with my wallet come launch day.

    Ugh yeah, it doesnt look bad in concept and graphics, but the battle system, or at least what is shown, looks awful

  • PrinceHeir

    ehh looks okay.

    i’ll stick to Deus Ex, Metal Gear, Vanquish, Binary Domain,

    for my cyberpunk and futuristic needs

  • Prodigy-X

    I’m not feeling this game.

    I really don’t feel like Capcom was the right publisher for this game. Sony dropping this kinda felt like the end. I mean between the limited exposure to this game, lack of marketing and then…I definitely wasn’t feeling the combat either. It would seem Capcom was more interested in pushing the Revelations port versus cultivating a new IP and western dev team.

  • AnimusVox

    If anything the battle system reminds me of the Batman Arkham, which isnt necessarily a bad thing, at least not to me considering I really liked those games. I’m still interested in this game though. I like climbing things.

  • ddsfan2

    The combat in this game looks similar to (but inferior in comparison to) El Shaddai. Considering that most here didn’t like that game, (although I liked it) I can’t imagine that this game will fare as well.

    Some aspects of the game look promising, though. I’d have to play the demo to really get an idea of how this game plays.

    I think the game looks pretty good. I’m going to do my best to support the creators. I applaud them for trying to release a game with some new innovative ideas, and a female lead character.

    (Sal – thanks for posting this.)

    Time for me to rant a little bit. Sorry ~

    There is an article floating around about how they had problems getting publishers interested in Remember Me, simply because the main character was a woman. This year has had a few games with female leads, like Tomb Raider, and the upcoming Beyond Two Souls. If publishers really feel that way, then it’s time to change that.

    It might be more marketing than the publishers themselves? I don’t want to believe developers would feel that way, ever.

    I was upset when Irrational Games didn’t want to put Elizabeth on the cover of Infinite, because she didn’t look cool enough or some crap. If you have watched any of the game, you see her more than Booker, she is more or less the main character of the game. The developers even released a long video, explaining how difficult it was to create her, how hard they worked at it, etc.

    In other words, she is a fantastic character. Tell the marketing team to go fly a kite or something, she deserves to be on the cover.

    All of the characters in games should be well written, they should have personality, feelings, depth. They should make us care about them, and that should apply to all the characters, the men, the women, the dogs, the aliens, etc.

    I’m not saying – You should buy the game because it stars a female lead character.

    I’m saying that if you think the game looks good, don’t let that be the reason you don’t buy the game. It’s like if someone decided they didn’t want to buy Tomb Raider, because it stars Lara and not a Nathan Drake like character.

    Or if someone decided they hated Beyond Two Souls, because the main character is a woman.

    That’s just silly, and thinking like that is bad for gaming in my opinion.

    • Bloodios

      These guys really should’ve brought the project to Square Enix’s doorstep first before trying any of the other publisher. After all, this gen alone, we were given a whole trilogy that starred female protagonists, and it also happens to be part of their flagship franchise. That and they also published Tomb Raider. The chances can’t possibly be that bad.

      • http://twitter.com/GematsuZero Zero

        I guess Dontnod felt Capcom was the best choice for them? Since we don’t know if Square-Enix was even interested, I’m not all to sure how to respond. It does sound like a good fit.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Looks rather good. It’s like the Arkham games with a dash of God Hand, what with the combo customization. I’m also really drawn to the setting. Neo Paris looks awesome. It’s a pity I don’t have the cash to support this at launch, as I’d really like to.

  • Elvick

    I want to like this, but it just seems kind of… I don’t know. Nothing really clicks for me.

    I wish more new games would launch at $40. Because I’d probably just take the risk on it if it were that price. It was great that Sly 4 and Anarchy Reigns were $40.

    I can’t see myself spending $60 on this, and by the time I give it a shot the sale won’t really make a difference in the fate of this game, IP, developer, etc. And it could also affect other new IPs, female lead characters, and games of this kind. :/

    Bleh.

    Wish they hadn’t given her a gorilla face… Western devs always give girls tiny eyes :/
