So let's see.
The gameplay in the african map was OK. Somewhat better than I expected, the guy got through with stealth mostly. It seemed quite linear though, but it's hard to judge that from a gameplay footage. The new grab move was cool, and the truck action was quite good too - any way to interact with the enviroment is welcome. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
The snowy vid was very short, but it looked good, except for the "water flows down on carema lens" effect. That was lame. It's unnecessary, useless and feels like it's just another way to show off the super fancy graphics of the X360. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Hey NMC, long time no see. Thanx for the link.

About the game :
Some parts look pretty complete, lighting & effects look well implemented.

Other parts just look off ! No lighting/shadowing at all.

The code just isn't E3 show ready if you ask me. The delay was a good call.

I thought with nextgen we'd finally get totally rid of those (not that this changes anything for real, but this means the night/daylight switching gone for sure :'(). But oh well, what can you do... At least they did it as they did it with BF so that the shadows cast onto the charcters correctly.

I apologize... a bit.

I just saw the kinshasha level video ; which looks very very good. This level looks to feature all lighting & fx.

The Shanghai & arctic level seemed to be lacking this. So why make a trailer with those levels when they're not ready and a shame to show ?

the biggest thing bugs me is not its unpolished grphics or mediocre animation, the gameplay just doesnt seem to have anything new to offer, not much interaction with the envirement. i hope they dont expect to rely on these few directed moments to be the only selling point.

Knot3D
05-11-2006, 05:25 AM
^Agreed. They said the daylight levels would offer gameplay in which Sam can manipulate the environment and use destraction methods to remain stealthy throughout that level.

oh just one thought regarding the animation, i should see dust stick to sam's sweaty arm when he rolls on the ground

05-11-2006, 07:18 AM
kanonathena...

It is important to take into consideration the technical requirements to implement such things as dust sticking to arms and better animations. Do you actually know how to do these things?

When such things are lacking, it is obviously not because of lack of talent but more about getting the game done within schedule and under budget. The reality of this forces the developers to stop adding new effects at some point.

100% true.
That's exactly what I wanted to say. I mean just look at the African mission. I was looking forward to see how it was gonna play, and I must say I'm kind of disappointed. It seems like it's almost the same thing than by night (I did say almost).
Also, one thing I hope can get changed (I don't know if it's too late yet) is the fact that you can still run towards an enemy, punch him and go to the next one (something that I tried not to use in Chaos Theory). Also, it would have been cool (since UBI's goal is to have a minimized HUD (or HUB I don't remember ^^)) if they hadn't put those kind of ridiculous icons (for when you can interact with something).

Ok, I know some of you are going to say I shouldn't complain so much, so I'm really sorry. I can't finish without saying what I found looked cool.
I think the graphics are gonna be just plain amazing (the Africa mission looks great). Also, that they have a bit more variety in the gameplay (not just stealth, but a bit more action) is a good thing I guess (as long as they keep it under control).

Keep up the work UBI!

kanonathena
05-11-2006, 08:35 AM
apparently I'm not complaining about the animation and my suggestion is totally feasible, you know sometimes a little details out of expection can be even more effective than an overhaul.

similarly if a company cant offer you superior product(not ubi), the smartest thing for them to do is to provide services distinguished from others'(ie. send christmace card), this is all about human nature, people tend to exaggerate small difference.

now back on topic, graphically sc4 may not be a huge leap from sc3. So far the most noticable change is that sam will start to sweat in the sun which was actually introduced in sc3 where sam get all wet and shiny in the rain , but you will read about it in almost every preview. what does that tell ya?

if sam gets dusty after rolling on the ground i'm sure people will get excited about it every time they talk about how detailed sc4 was. Now see my point? NEVER miss the chance to use a leverage

The graphics suck atm, the textures of the grounds and stuff are totall BS. But I don't really care. I was drooling over that footage. I don't care about graphics that much anyway.

Gameplay &gt; Graphics.

capteenix
05-11-2006, 09:19 AM
reasons may be:
1. They showed Pre-alpha version in E3.
2. The game is not done yet (make a game, then polish it!)

abonbon
05-11-2006, 10:13 AM
Yeah, UBI does still have until september to polish the game. The question is: are they gonna have time to polish up the gameplay (that, as I said above, didn't really blow me away), or is that time going to be used for the graphics (which maybe weren't THAT good, but still)?
Because 5 months isn't a very long time: I would tend to think that those 5 months will be used for graphic changes and optimization. I don't know much about making computer games, so could some of you (that know a bit more) try to answer?

Thank you

So relax. Everyone has a different opinion, so if you don't agree with what someone says, just explain why. That's what makes a discussion forum so interesting. If people can just disuss a point without flaming each other all the time.

well I didn't found in SC: DA's gameplay a real change from the previous games except some new moves and day light missions which has already been done in PT..
