    Anyone played it?

    Is that ‘Steel Carnage’ thing a bad idea… or the worst idea since the N-Gage?

    imo it actually works pretty well, you have to get in close behind them before you activate it which still remains pretty challenging

    I hate it, it turns 90% of the game into a flashy qte. And unless im being blind i can’t find the setting to use the right stick as your pitch control meaning all manoeuvring is done solely on the left stick which is utter bobbins.

    Hope this changes for the final release and its just been left out for the demo otherwise it’ll be rental only.

    I wish they’d stop trying to add new gimmicky things to old games like in this latest Driver, we like the games because of how they played then, improve it by all means but why change it completely??.

    stop fucking with my childhood!!!!!

    kinny999: control type ‘original’

    oh wait, no its still on left stick there, but im pretty sure thats how it used to work, with pitch and roll on left stick, yaw on shoulders

    Yeah tried that but still misses the right stick for rolling.

    I can’t say a bad thing about this, i absolutely loved this demo. It’s exactly what AC needed IMO. Sure Fires Of liberation was great, but i also felt the dog-fights weren’t incredibly spectacular and they ARE in this demo. I like what they’ve done.
