    It’s a disappointment that we didn’t see a long/moderate length gameplay video till now, I really want to get it, but I still didn’t see enough of it, so not sure.

    Also being priced 50$ brings worry, it means it is not a full fledged hero game, or that it is a 4hrs game or something.

    “it means it is not a full fledged hero game, or that it is a 4hrs game or something.”

    No, that means neither. It just means that Activision can be less greedy for once. 4 hour long games can still be expensive.

    +1. I’ve seen all of a couple of screenshots of this thing, from which I could only liken it to Ninja Gaiden, though likely not half as smart – NOT a comment against HMS’ work or the game quality, but simply an observation of the style the images suggested, and probable design focus.

    P.S. please don’t think about how we already deemed this game a failure in advance and fired the development team.

    Coming for PC is a mistake in the press-release i think.

    @3: this is Activision we are talking about, the ones who published 007 Legends and The Walking Dead Killer Instinct or something to cash on names, the titles had no quality in them whatsoever.

    I find it hard to believe Activision turned it good now LOL :D

    @4: HMS did a good job with Transformer according to critics, but they are being pushed way too hard, I am not so sure about Deadpool anymore, I was so excited about it, thinking I will see more and more of the game to ease my worries, but nothing at all.

    Actually HMS made Dark Watch a PS2 game that I actually liked back in the day, but you can see Activision pushing them to release a game year after year, I don’t know how big the studio is, but they also laid off 40 emplyee working on Deadpool not so long ago.

    It reminds me of Beenox and Eurocom, the later being closed now, but they both were pushed way too hard.

    @7 Not at all, actually. Because of this, and the press release having specific pricing individual to the PC version.
