So this Avatar video game, the demo...

Kind of kicks ass.  Or at least it's visually stunning.  I dare say better than Uncharted 2 in spots.  It's really Lost Planet meets jungle environment, I was expecting absolute crap.

@Sarnecki: Graphics are nice but hows the gameplay?
#3 Posted by Sarnecki (693 posts) -

You know, it's tough to assess from the size of the demo.  The game play is something I could see being fun.  You fight a good variety of creatures, you have four weapons, pistol, assault rifle, flame thrower, and grenade launcher.  The concern I have is that I fought Viper-wolves, those big hammerhead  creatures, Na'Vi...  All melee based enemies.  The enemies are all fast, or strong, or smart or unique in their own way.  It's definitely not stop and pop Gears of War, none of your opponents shoot. 
 
 It's going to be a worthy rental the weekend Avatar comes out, and then you'll never play it again, but it is most definitely fun, and pretty.

Or he never played a demo, cos he must be seeing something I'm not. Great graphics? What? Have you seen the Giantbomb quicklook?

I don't know what your on about but I obviously know he's played it. I guess that's what your on about. It was sarcasm. 
 
EDIT: And no, I dont like the graphics. I think the style is horrible.
  
 
EDIT2: Oh, and also again. You might wanna clarify your post. I have literally no fucking idea what the hell you are on about.

I don't have the energy to put effort into phrasing this in a witty or entertaining way.
 
The last post was over a week ago. I'm quite certain that the issue of this game's quality was resolved a long while ago.
 
Sorry if I came off overly dickish, the bumping of old topics has really gotten out of hand lately.

Hmm. Let's see. Am I commenting on the games quality, or the games graphics? And am I replying to all the gameplay info this guy talked about or the phrase "visually stunning"? I think its safe to say that I was referring to the graphics, and that in the last week the graphics haven't gone from absolutely stunning to rubbish. 
 
So I ask you: 
 
What the fuck?
    
 
(I'm off now so if you still wish to criticise my post then you'll have to wait till tomorrow...)
