Oh man, this game owns
Really fun stuff, I might buy it this weekend. Just got stuck on one of the desert levels though, where you've got to take out a bunch of guys on the little watch tower things. I keep getting pwned by 3-4 at once
Damn this **** looks tight, I'ma try the demo for sure.
EDIT: Damn this **** is tight. I wouldn't pay $20 for it though, maybe $10. The animations and fighting system are awesome, so are the character models and the blood, but the terrains themselves are sorely lacking. Plus the levels are too short.
Here's some of the awesome **** I've done in the game:
Sweep an enemy, then kick em off a ledge and to their death. Ouch.
Rabbit-kick people into a wall. The screen shakes and you hear this awesome cracking noise.
Sweep, then stab someone when they're down. You get the Slain bonus, 200 points.
When someone's down on the ground and unconscious, you can use duck+attack to do a sw33t Matrix attack where Turner kicks the enemy up, then punches him in the chest really really hard, sending the enemy flying far away.
I've killed people by knocking enemies into each other using this, and the Rabbit Kick. Awesome ****.
Throw knives in the back of people's heads when they're running away. "Bullseye!"
'Reverse' someone's attack, sending them flying off a hill.
Also, something I highly recommend, is take a look at
And check out some of the settings. There is an awesome Velocity Blur that was disabled for me by default, among other sweet options. Enable them for added immersion.
Examples of these
Damage effects (blackout, doublevision)
You can also set the detail levels for other things you cannot set in the Options menu. Great if your game is running slow.
I've also noticed that turning the Blood detail to Low instead of High really helps performance.
