That looks pretty nice

looks too impressive, does the player have free roam? or is it on rails?

how many disks do you reckon it would take to fit on the 360

Hmmm.... This is probably the first time I've become interested in this title.. I'll keep my ears to the ground.
Anyway, my rant-
Why is it companies are focusing their energy on graphics? I bet this game will look near life like, but will last 7 hours and have almost replayability!?
...Just like Mirrors Edge.
F***, I miss the old days... Days of 200+ hours of Final Fantasy, with constant excitment and progress...

looks great! i wouldnt be surprised if it was delayed a couple of months as it gets close to the release date though. If it improves overall quality then its ok i suppose ^.^

If it is anything like Indigo prophecy then it will be free roam with action qte's (more like an old school point and click adventure)
Final fantasy - JRPG
Mirrors edge - action game
Nothing has changed over the generations really. As a matter of fact certain genre's have gotten longer and there are mor replayability. Comparing two different genre's and asking why they don't compare to each other is only setting yourself up for disappointment. And graphics are never mutually exclusives. My fovorite games not only have the best graphics of thier time but also the best gameplay and decent length for thier genre.
WRPG's - 100+ hours
JRPG's - 40-60 hours
Adventure 20-30+ hours
Shooters - 8-16 hours
Action 5-10 hours
Racing sims ...... forever

The images are 1920x1080 (1076 but i expect that it was trimmed). I hope the game also runs at that res, it would look fantastic.

I really hope they make this game at least 12 hours long... comon people i tought that next gen games will be like 20 hours at least.. What the f.... i can't pay 60 euros for a 6 hour game... i got fooled once with heavenly sword i'm not gonna make that mistake twice... ps: this game looks great

I'd like to know how far this game will push the ps3. Because that mans face just looks amazing
- 3:51am EST - December 11th, 2008
wow thats a nice character model, look at the little skin details, the specular highlights around the scar. its very well done. looks amazing

Yeah, I remember when I was a kid playing Sonic 2 and it lasted what? 2 hours after you got the hang of it? Download some old plataformers and see if you can't finish them in one afternoon.
Anyway, to the topic at hand.
I'm not totally impressed with the scenery, but that face... just... holy cow! The minute I saw it I thought it was a photo. It took me some good seconds to realize it wasn't.

2 exceptions to the rule in general, we know what i mean by this. bethesda! i havent played fallout 3 yet, but oblivion was epic and although a couple of years old looked brilliant!

- 5:49am EST - December 11th, 2008
