Demo Out Now!

Well guys, the demo's finally here. Personally I'm pretty excited, I had a blast playing it at PAX with some of the developers and I think the overall game should be pretty badass.

Sadly since it's a US release only, the demo's also only for the US. However I'm sure some crafty silver account work could solve that

I had some what of an interest in this game, being that its a tactical shooter from Ubisoft you'd think it would be very similar to GRAW. I was sadly disappointed that its not.

In GRAW and R6V the controls felt fluid, light and smooth, but if this game is anything like the demo they're nothing like that of other Ubisoft shooters. Moving the character around felt heavy and kind of clunky to me. The button sequences aren't too bad and I like the weapon/equipment selector dial thats brought up when you hold down 'B'. Precision aiming was off on the default setting, again it wasn't smooth; you'd try to just move it a fraction but it was difficult to line up.

I guess I just had my expectations a little too high figuring Ubisoft would update a few things to GRAW's code and slap some new character models in but I was wrong.

I may be wrong but if I remember correctly you start off with shitty controls then while you play you earn points which you can add to certain attributes that'll in turn make the controls easier.

I do remember when I played at PAX that everything was extremely sluggish and hard to control.

Holy crap the demo was terrible. If servers remain that bad when it releases the game will be utterly broken as well which wouldn't be a bad thing considering how dreadful the demo was. Man what happened to this series...

I must have played a different demo because mine was horrible.

I'm glad you liked it but I think I'll stick to COD 4.

Oh and by the way most people hated Two Worlds but I loved it so remember that opinions are like assholes....everyone has one.

the demo was so bad it made school seem fun. It was so damn bad, it was like the Ghost Recon series (Which I'm not a big fan of to begin with) but worse. The controls sucked, gameplay sucked, only thing that was ok was the airstrike. I'll get my airstrike in call of duty 4. I think i am defiently gonna pass on this crap game, Ubisoft dissapointed me after comming out with the great Rainbow Six Vegas and Assasins Creed. I thinki'm going to say No on Americans Arm and keep playing Call lof duty 4 and save my money to get assasins creed and either Kane and Lynch or Gh III, who knows.


BUT BEWARE: This game is worst then playing tic tac toe with a hobo

It makes me sad when I remember this games was made with the help of the US Army. What the hell were we thinking? Graphics are sub-par, the controls are close to the worst I have ever used, it just sucked.
