I played a bit of it and liked it. It still is literally dark, so it is hard to see some things. I had no idea that there was a person in that drone pod thing, for example, so when I killed the guy in the animation that followed, I was a bit surprised. Still, it looks good and I am sure I will get it when it arrives.
That demo was pretty shitty. I enjoyed the first Riddick, but this one controls awkwardly (even allowing for the fact that you're in some drone head), has an absolutely terrible user interface (in Drone mode) and is not fun to play at all. I'm severely disappointed.
Edit: the people giving my post negative ratings can grow up, suck my balls, or both :-D
"Diamond said:Just like the momentum of how the characters move and weird stuff like pressing X to go stealth?"People who are saying the controls are bad but they played the first one : WTF? They feel exactly the same..."Yeah. They were OK back then, they're pretty damn bad now. Especially with the drones."
AHHH YOU CAN SHOOT OUT LIGHTS!?!?!? Wow that is awesome. So used to games like Rainbow 6 where you'd think shooting out lights would be obvious but it isn't in there. Dang well I guess I'm playing through the demo again. I like the game but the actual shooting felt a little clunky. I don't see the multiplayer being very big either which is a shame because some of the modes looked pretty awesome.

It could be that I'm just not used to it, but I wasn't impressed enough to bother getting into it beyond one playthrough anyway."Diamond said:Just like the momentum of how the characters move and weird stuff like pressing X to go stealth?""People who are saying the controls are bad but they played the first one : WTF?

Didn't have any problems with the controls at all, perhaps I need to replay it. Then again, I've been playing Killzone 2 for the past week...draw your own conclusions...
From what I saw it was pretty awesome. I don't see why this wouldn't be a day one purchase for most people as it's already bundled with a remake of what many consider to be the best movie tie-in game of all time, plus a sequel, and a multiplayer component.
Although I'm on the fence regarding that seeing StarBreeze's track record with The Darkness multiplayer. There's a part of me that kinda wishes they just focus exclusively at what they are good at: Making phenomenal story driven FPS content.
The demo does a good job letting you experiment with stealth and guns blazing.
"I can't wait to play it, I'm downloading it now. :) How are the graphics on the Xbox 360?"It's quite good looking, a big difference over even the old PC port (which was a big upgrade over the Xbox 1 version graphically). Of course it's not the same area in the demo as the original game so we'll have to see how upgraded the old areas are.
