DEFIANCE demo at the Playstation Experience (London)
Hiya fellow LOK fans~
I was asked to post this feedback here by Dan Cabuco for everyone to see ^^
Some of you might have seen the exact same article on some other forums so I'm really sorry if u've read it before.
*Apparently, this was not the E3 Demo, but the latest demo (as I wrote in my other posts) - thanx for correcting me Dan ^^ *
The Playstaition Experience is an anual event that takes place in London UK for fans to try out new games that won' t be released for a few months, have tournaments, live music etc.
This is my feedback after playing the demo! ^__^
Got to Earl's Court early and went straight to the [Quest] section...luckily there where a few booths for DEFINACE so I got in there straight away ^^
I started in a Sarafan keep, and got all the way to some really gorgeous looking underwater caverns.
Graphically~ lovely work, the models really do surpass SR2, I can tell that much pushing of limits for the PS2 have been done. I was really stunned by the detail in Kain's model.
There was a lot of pressure with the gameplay time coz ppl where beginning to queue up behind me, so I couldn't really have a full look around at all the pretty scenery.
Took some time to get into some butt kicking, but I must say I was impressed by the combat system! The telekinesis stuff was a real welcome treat~ pushing those Sarafan all over the place or into me and a well defined juggling combo!
One thing tho, the automatic targeting system became a lil difficult sometimes. Whereas the automatic targeting was good, I couldnít find a way to change who was being targeted (like u can in SR2).
So if ur trying to tactically telekinetically move enemies around, u canít... Maybe that was just me being crappy with the controls?
Tho I've been told that the combat system's still got a way to go!
Argh I couldnít do any feeding combos either, the Blood Reaver was doing all the feeding No biting on the neck for me! Tho I did get the projectile blood feeding from the chained wenches heh.
There where nice moves and good fluidity~ I think I'm really gonna enjoy the combat system in this game. It's got some great pluses on the SR2 combat system. Kudos to the team ne!
What I could hear of the dialogue was major sweetness! It's so refreshing to hear Simon Templeman all over again in Kain's role. Nice dialogue too....but I had to literally put my ear next to the speakers and look like an idiot to catch anything. So I didn't really get a lowdown on the sound FX.
The other thing was the glitches...with the crash meshes for example, but that's only really to be expected with a demo.
Overall, I was SO pleased and if that's the demo, I friggin' can't wait for the final game!
*goes around huggin CrystalD*
Well...I had much fun playing some cool games there. The one that got my attention had to be Resident Evil Outbreak.
Anyone who has a chance to get themselves up to London for the PS Experience, it's on till Sun at Earl's Court and costs £6 to get in ^^
For DEFIANCE...do it! LOL
