Hope the game is fun dude. Keep us updated on how it plays etc.
It's actually addictive and challenging. Not such a far cry from either the RE4 or 5 mercenaries. True, it was a lazy effort in terms of core features and graphics (there are some huge framerate issues, some of the animations from a distance are just awful) but the fun gameplay's there.
It doesnt make a difference for the distant people. First thing I tried Already beat all of the missions in the game though...
On another note, Revelations looks great
The game does gain some antialiasing with the 3d mode off though, which is nice.
Looking forward to playing this tomorrow, anyone care to join me?
Yeah, because IGN has proved themselves a trusted competent video game reviewing site...god these guys suck so hard.
The "review" which was a paltry 5 1/2 paragraphs, just sits there complaining about everything, while there are legitimate complaints, it doesn't go beyond basic bitching.
If this is a proper review then the moon is a football.
HAHA! That's the case that inspired page after page of whining?
Fans complain about IGN review.
Film at 11.
Expecting more content from a glorified minigame being sold at full retail price is perfectly reasonable. Most, if not all, of her points are valid.

Ya know it used to be older reviews would get into other aspects like are the controls being smooth, fluid, or stiff, how the games music and sound effects are, what gameplay modes are available, or have to be unlocked.
All this does is complain about an over priced minigame that has very little content and it sounds like a bitchy blogger who doesn't like the series to begin with.
To be fair, she devoted a paragraph to the controls, and there really aren't any game modes to speak of. It's Mercs. What more do you expect? And regarding the sound, from what I've seen and heard, that would only be one more negative to add to the list.
As for her not liking the series to begin with, if you've read any of her other articles regarding Mercs and Revelations, she seems to be fan and is fairly knowledgeable about the series, at least moreso than the average blogger/reviewer.
Not to sound overly defensive about it, I just don't understand what people were expecting. We already know exactly what we're getting with this game. Reviews shouldn't really make much of a difference in this case. The biggest issue isn't whether it's fun or not, but rather if there is enough content to warrant charging a full retail price for the game, and we already pretty much knew there wasn't.

Mine came in today...my case is number 195. Playing the Rev demo first...have to say...I hope they improve it by release. Controls are a bit clunky...and I had fun trying to open a locker when Jill wanted to open the door next to it instead. I wasn't even looking at the door, yet she kept kicking it open anyway. And the scripted event...I lol'd as I just stood in the stairwell and watched the monster holding the guy while he grunted, just waiting for me to come close enough so they would actually kill him. All in all....short and only slightly amusing. I wasn't a fan of LiN. I'll give Mercs a try and see how it fairs.
Are you tired, Rebecca?
