It really does look interesting as it caught my attention when the first video came out on the Marketplace 2 months ago. This has the potential to be the Battlefield 1943 of the summer of 2010, but I wonder how it will sell given it's a new IP vs. the established Battlefield name.

It's already superior to Battlefield 1943 in terms of content, and they have promised if it sells well to produce more content, unlike 1943 which EA has just left to gather dust.

The trailers make the game look awesome, I can't wait for this to come out. Just hope that it's got a healthy amount of people to support the online MP.

I'll check out the trial tomorrow, but still its online only so if the community sucks or is non-existent then the game will suffer.

If you buy PSN plus it just means you have to wait longer for all the content. The wait time on PSN pisses me off too.

I'm excited for this, specially since it's supposed to be only $15. I hope the game/community is as good as it looks like it could be.

It's not always sony's fault, Microsoft is known to entice developers into time exclusive contracts.

yea i know, i'm just angry about it because it's so constant. anyway, i hope the community is good to0. When Cellfactor came out it had potential then the community died... i use to have a blast on that game it was like unreal mixed with halo....for the price of 10$ made it so worth the buy and that much more fun.

I bought t today and so far, it's pretty cool. With the suits and game chatter, it reminds me a lot of F.E.A.R.

No campaign but it does have some co-op missions. Not sure how long that is since I haven't played it yet.

It actually has online play for the demo. It isn't a bad game at all.

It's a good game, but the one thing that bothers me is not being able to play with a party unless it's a Private Match. In Quick Match, you can invite your friends, but it's not guaranteed that you will be on the same team.

This is what made me not buy the game.

Honestly that doesn't bother me, because I usually have more fun killing my friends, and then working together next match etc. Nothing's better than hearing your buddy scream profanities at you for having skillz, and then wreaking havoc together.

Okay, I dled the trial and gave it a swing. I hated the Black Ops thing, I hate the superfluous visuals, and I hate this game. The multi was alright, but I have to rely on people to be good at shooters and think tactically, and that's just asking too much. I hate people. This game also has maps where you can fall to your death. When are designers going to realize falling down holes makes me want to kill myself? The menus for the loadouts and such are confusing at first, and it's just not nice to look at. Save your money for something more fun, like getting mugged.

You mean "think tactically" like "look for holes so you don't fall the Fuck down them?"

Wasn't really feeling this game, it's competent but there's too many good shooters out there to compete with.

Played some of the demo. If I wanted a game with lofty controls that looked like Killzone 2, I'd buy Killzone 2 (and the dual shock 3 will take care of the rest).

Thumbs down from me.
