    I did a search and didn't see this game (even though I could have sworn someone posted on it).

    Played the demo today. Tried and true, fun flight mechanics from the guys who made one of the best flying games ever.

    But this is the second game that Nathan Drake stars in, lol. He's everywhere.

    Cover system feels very familiar, and the flight system allows for a lot of manuvering and cool moves.

    The only problem I see with this game is figuring out how the hell I'm going to afford it next week.

    Got the demo DLing now and will play it in the morning when I get home from work.
    I didn't realize it had Nathan Drake in it.

    I think that there's no multiplayer in the retail release, right? :(

    When a game can be made well without the need for multiplayer, it says a lot about the developer. Sorry, still old school, I appreciate a good multiplayer game, and a developer who adds a great MP elements to an already great game is awesome, but a Dev who can make a single player game with that as their focus and make it good deserves praise as well. Games like Ico, Shadow, and Zelda are still some of my favorite games, despite never having multiplayer (except for four swords, but that wasn't a full Zelda game).

    I don't want a multiplayer Zelda or Ratchet and Clank. I want a good single player game.

    That said.... this game WOULD be fun with Multi... like Crimson was.

    Whaveter. This isn't a putdown to 360, I swear on my balls, but the best multiplayer I have had on 360 was Streets of Rage 2 wit' chue... Awwwwwweee.

    Dont feel bad Adam, he neglects me too :cry .

    JK or am I? DUN DAH DUUUUN!

    Anyways, I got to play the demo and holy something-something it was great! I even got to grab onto one of those alien UFO's and hijacked it, which is no easy feat I might add. You need to jump around this gun turret that's shooting at ya, and then the pilot will do crazy maneuvers to shake you off. It's wild.

    Some of those aliens are friggen hard to kill too, or my machine gun has weak damage. The little demo was a blast though, this demo has sealed the deal for me now.

    played the demo for a second today and i couldnt bother to finish it

    just seems to me like the Iron Man games with a cover system for ground combat minus the novelty of it being Iron Man

    meh

    All this talk about the Nathan Drake guy, Im not sure about the voice actor, but the main dude from Shadow Complex looks alot like Drake.

    So Nolan North is voicing the main character?

    That's an instant buy for me.

    i was excited for a second when i heard the voice in the demo. i was like "hey thats nathan drake!"

    and then i played a little and i was like.. "hey....this random new character is trying to be nathan drake..." and was kinda like...meh.


    gotta admit, i'm not at all that interested in this game

    And from what I hear, it's the same actor.

    Nolan North plays everyone. Even the women.
