Black looks awesome... Got this off of gamespot..

 

"The main focus of Black is to make the simple act of firing a gun exciting. The team is going about this in a few different ways. The first is that the guns are the true "stars" of the game, so special attention is being paid to the way they look, fire, and animate for reloads. The Criterion producer on hand used the term "gun porn" to describe the feel the team is going for. The game will also put a heavy focus on physics and environmental damage, as each bullet is sure to do some sort of damage to something on the screen, whether it hits its intended target or not. Death animations are also said to be getting some serious attention, with a specific focus on making enemies die in cool, action movie sorts of stuntman scenarios. It sounds like you'll never leave an environment looking anything like it looked when you came in, so leaving behind a trail of destruction is another one of the team's key points."

 

Enviormental damage looks great in the trailor even though they only show a couple different weapons. Im excited to see how this game is when it comes out.

I got to play Black for a few minutes recently (PS2 version). It was very satisfying but I wonder if it won't get dull after a while. It rather felt like Serious Sam.

The developer rep said they were going for a "quick play" experience for gamers who don't have time to jump into a detailed mission. The game design seems more like an arcade game than a traditional console FPS. Interesting but I wouldn't expect a deep plot.

The coolest part of playing Black is experimenting with killing enemies without actually shooting them. Shoot the ceiling to bring it down on top of them, shooting the walls to create enough flying debris that they can't see you, etc.

I'll be holding out for next gen, as well.

 

The gunplay looks pretty damn solid. While I admit I'm a sucker for a cool story, some mindless shooting could be pretty fun since it seems as though the environments will be so destructible. Could be fun to simply see how much mayhem and devastation you can leave in your wake!!!

I used to think this game looked pretty sweet but after watching those videos I'm a little worried. The stealth parts look really boring especially considering how braindead the AI looks. What is the point of stealth if you dont fear your opponents? That guy was shooting well within earshot of those AI guys and they just kept walking like nothing was going on. Oh and how about when those 2 guys are standing there, 1 of them gets shot in the head and the other just stands there looking confused. Pretty lame.

EB had a demo for the PS2 version which after playing has made it a must buy for me. i was suprised at how it played as i expected much more run and gun than what it turned out to be. the reloading and firing of the guns looked and sounded great. the enemy AI seemed fine as they did the basic things you would expect, taking cover and trying to get better position. cant comment on your squad as the objective of the demo was to meet up with them at which point it ends. one strange thing was the demo was on a CD, cant remember the last time i saw anything on a CD, unless i just havent noticed.

Played a bit of the Xbox demo.

 

It's now on my to buy list.

 

Best surround sound effects ever. Maybe best sound ever in a game. Did I mention that they really nailed the sound?

 

Also, some really damn fine destruction & particles (think F.E.A.R. times five) and really nice graphics for the "old" Xbox.

 

The demo is time-limited unfortunately, but I liked what I played.

Thanks for the impressions. I wasn't in a hurry to hook up the old Xbox to try the demo, but now I'm thinking I'll try it real soon :)
