    Downloaded but it lost my interest very quickly. Felt like I wasted my time and only fragmented my hard drive for nothing.

      I agree. It really was fairly underwhelming.

    I remember when this game was announced at a Microsoft E3 and now it isn’t even getting released on the 360 in Japan and the PS3 will be getting exclusive content

    a resounding “meh”.

  • Russell Gorall

    Another terrible and underwhelming Japanese game? Go figure.

    This demo came out a couple weeks ago. Felt dated and cancelled. Kind of how Epic cancelled Gears Judgement then Microsoft still wanted it so bad the had Epic Poland do the game. What a sad state of first party development they have.

    PS4 announcement February 20th!!!

    This demo has been up for a while hasn’t it?

    Also whats with all the hate in the comments? I think the game is pretty sweet.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yes, like two weeks now. I wondered why the Major didn’t post it up then, but maybe he either forgot or had a lot on his plate at the time and didn’t have the time for anything else.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Little late, no? lol I downloaded this demo like two weeks ago. Fun but not as fun as I thought it would be.

  • Russell Gorall

    I am Polish. I appreciate CD Projekt and good developers.

    I don’t appreciate low-end developers in over their heads on an IP in which Epic didn’t even want to put their name fully on it.

    Is it better to write rants about the state of gaming, or write rants about a post about the state of gaming? Cheers.

    • Nick Peck

      Or that maybe Epic has way to much going on in house and had to dish it off to their new/other office to do the game. Nice try though. You do realize they have a brand new engine they are getting ready to sell, not to mention a half dozen games (including next gen stuff) in development?
