‘Intense story-driven action game spectacle,’ barf
Everything about this is hokey and trite, a Marvel comic in a leather jacket ensconced button up with less color. It also has a pretty nice look to it compared to other photorealistic games. There’s some color and good lighting there. It’s like a not gross and exclusively piss-covered Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
It’s winning me over for the first time though through technical marvel but because that initial bit of combat starts with shrug inducing third-person cover boredom before moving toSingularity-reminiscent time powers–gained by being involved in a freak accident that is killing time–that seems to encourage scaled back, Vanquish-style movement. Active gunplay. Like, there could be a good action game under all this pomp instead of what easily could’ve been lazy cover-based shooting gluing a bad plot together?
I still don’t want to sit through the TV show, though, especially when it looks as if the game will have more than enough cutscenes and non-interactive bits.
