    Shaping up to be a pretty good game then. I wasn't actually expecting much from this title so I'm impressed. Perhaps Insomniac just need to stay away from the FPS genre.

    The game seems to be scoring really high! Currently in the neogaf thread which has a lot more reviews
    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    It was obvious the game was going to get good scores. Insomniac makes good games. Only XB1 haters were talking $#@! on this game.

    I am just thrilled my XB1 finally has another exclusive I am excited for.

    Removed OP troll-bait quote.

    Anyway,
    And with the further US pricecut it is seriously hard to resist! Glad it's getting positive reviews, looking forward to trying it out.

    This game is looking good. Can any Xboxers post a thread with pics and maybe impressions of the game? Would appreciate.

    2 to 3 days!?!?!? That's too long!


    Time for me to boycott you and/or make a petition to ignore you as well as voting 'mynd' as worst company in America.

    Also, create a twitter $#@!storm in the form of #myndgate.


    You know why I'm doing this? Cos I'm a gamer and I'm entitled... TO EVERYTHING!!!

    Well it gets worse
    Seeing as my wife decided to surprise me, she bought the console without my knowledge and asked them to ship it with AC:Unity when it arrives cause she didn't want one arriving without the other ( I don't think she realizes the console comes with a game).
    So I wont be getting it for a couple of weeks.
    I'm crossing my fingers the JB hifi ignores her and ships the console in the next couple of days.

    If I had photographic memory, she only showed me the invoice once. Would need that dam order number.

    I'm watching the walkthrough and I start thinking about Saints Row a little. I guess it's the way the characters are designed and humor.

    Insomniac really proved themselves. Sitting metascore of 82 right now.

    Whole lot better than their previous game. Maybe you can even say having their own IP motivated them even more.
    So 10%(devs said it was more like 3%) more tflop on X1 is a such a huuuge deal, but 40% more on PS4 don' t count?

    Most of their main games have metacritic that is within the 80 range.

    People tended to overlook them in the past. All the Resistance games sit in the 80 to 87 range, same with Ratchet & Clank.

    The titles that don't sit in the 80's range have been their co-op focused spin-off games (usually done by a smaller team or at the time, their new second team.)

    Dammit, Sith! You beat me to it. ~removed troll bait childishness.~ Another solid xbox one title. Good job, Insomniac. This should silence all your doubters. Fuse is only a bad memory now..lol
