Seriously, who made these animations? She looks like she just shit her pants and tries to walk without smearing it in her pants...

The impression I have from that gif is that the player is just rapidly tapping A and D while running forward

Also, for what it's worth here is Penny Arcade's very brief thoughts. A bit more positive

From the reviews, it sounds like a game developed in many separate modules, by people of varying qualification levels.

good: combat, leveldesign, textures, vehicle driving, soundeffects

average: voice acting, questdesign, crew interactions, alien animation, music, crafting

bad-to-terrible: human animations and related graphics, user Interface, writing

plus a number of technical glitches (but that should be patchable)

so either they release the product too early, or lacked leadership by the producers

Or both?

It is EA involved. And their incompetence is legendary. :D

Still, at least it's not Ubisoft, they only have one quality level anymore. "Bad"

In fairness, EA can still bust out some very good games. I just wish this had been one of them.

e: like you say though it's not Ubisoft :P

The first bit is why I say not Ubi.
I am sure I will enjoy the game enough and for long enough to break even in my mind.

Remember, compare it to a Movie at a cinema (or on DVD)
1 play through = 1 watch of the movie.

so $12 for a movie ticket for maybe 2 hours.
So a game that entertains for 20 hours is worth at least $120 in that case.

Yes this means I would actually pay a LOT more for some games :3

I see it the same way: my metric is that a game has "paid for itself", in a sense, if I can get $1 an hour value out of it.

By this metric Skyrim is one of the cheaper games I've bought, though I got it for full price on release

My cheapest is $0.08/hr, for New Vegas. :V
Though these price metrics aren't correct at all :V

I usually want my games to get $0.25 an hour or so. By this logic, the best bang-for-buck I had was definitely I-War 2. I estimate at least four thousand hours in it, for ten bucks. :oops: :ghost:

Neh... in a couple of years.
