    I wasn't really impressed with the gameplay of this game... it looked like a combination between DMC and GOW.

    The other thing to consider is that Silicon Knights (makers of Too Human) is now suing Epic over the UE3 performance, so it remains to be seen how serious this affected the game development - assuming they're telling the truth.

    I don't know what kind of contracts Epic makes with their customers, but I can't see how SK could have much of a case here. It obviously can't be a serious flaw in the engine considering other hugely successful games are using it, and then the question is whether it can't do what they were told it could do, or just can't do it the way they want to do it.

    It was like they had some ideas there, but couldn't execute them. For example, the sword dragging was cool, and then he goes all ape **** on it, and it walks away, when iinstead t should have been sliced in half and left for dead.

    I think someone had some good thoughts started, and they got bungled by the idiot who said it should be a robot who comes busting through the wall.

    I agree. There are plenty of games using that engine without any complaints as far as I'm concerned, so I don't know what the deal is.

    This game had so much hype 2 years ago or so, then they screwed up, blamed it on the engine. But its looking like its going to come together pretty nice.
