Killzone: Mercenary video shows new gameplay

Postby frazzerr » 09 Mar 2013, 02:11

They should be looking to make the best game possible first. Gameplay and over all experience should be first and foremost, what's the point in having a beautiful looking title if it isn't fun to play? Why not say we are looking to create a fun/enjoyable title, instead of saying they want to create the best looking game on the Vita. Crytek are famous for this with the Crysis franchise and look what happens, too much time spent on graphics leads to a poor overall product devoid of enjoyment. Rant over ..

I bought a dog from a blacksmith, as soon as I got him home he made a bolt for the door.

On topic, what frazzerr said.

The controls don't really look fluid to me...

Which is what I care about the most.

The reason I don't like FPS games on the iPhone 5 is because of the touch screen.

with the Vita I was hoping this would be resolved however so far it dosent seem the case!

I don't see what controls your talking about???

The melee will be much easier with the touch screen. It works fine on uncharted.

The game just looks a bit sluggish. Movement doesn't look fluid and responsive like it does on say cod or bf3

This does look really good, as in graphically, however predictably I see the token swipe gestures have infected this game as well and made it worse as a result.

No killzone game has fluid controls, for some reason guerrilla games think having the weighty gun feel is fun. It's fine for the single player but for online I expect the controls to be smooth like halo, cod & battlefield. Since they stuck with the same crappy controls for Killzone 2 & 3, I'm assuming the gonna do the same for killzone 4 and Mercenary's. :cry:

Guys, lighten up. This footage is probably pre-alpha code. It will run fine, just chill....

I wouldn't bother trying make this lot positive.

Obviously they had no interest in this game in the first place.

I'd imagine they're the type to complain if they won a million on the lotto and ask why they didn't win fifteen.

Bunch of non Vita owners bitch and whine about the lack of fun and fluid controls on a game they've never played? Standard troll behaviour. They should probably get back to their WiiU's and see if a new game is going to be released this year....

Non Vita owner ? Naw mate I have a Vita, my gripe is as I said "Why not say we are looking to create a fun/enjoyable title, instead of saying they want to create the best looking game on the Vita". More emphasis is being put on graphics when tbh graphics aren't that important.
