Thanks for the back-up, J4K.
I could've elaborated a bit more on what I meant, but for Christ's sake...
I've never played the original, so I haven't quite forgotten anything about it. Can't comment on how much it has improved.
All I know for myself is that the graphics are very busy, yet also rather muddy. Thus, I find it to be unpleasant to look at.
Turning the 3D (which is VERY well-done) on actually makes it better. It sharpens everything up, making everything easier to distinguish etc. but I still find it hard to digest. It just looks UNPLEASANT to me.
I never said it looked bad, or not up to par. I said it looked unpleasant to me.
I also found Brütal Legend to look much more pleasing to the eyes than Gears of War 1+2. I just don't like most games that seem to consist of one shade of whatever colour they picked out of a hat.
The gameplay itself is pretty solid, fun and it controls quite nicely with the circle pad pro, so I might pick it up eventually. Kind of depends on the reviews.
There might be some horrible issues with the game that we won't find out about until the reviews come in.
And sorry for saying this, but I have to get it off my chest: Vorash, stop being such an utter douche.
For someone with supposedly 20 years of gaming experience (and thus probably being at least 20 years of age), you act awfully immature and I'd REALLY appreciate it if you could change this.
You've started an argument with me before that could've easily been resolved in a friendly manner if you just stayed calm, but you decided not to. Meh. Fine. But please just try not to make it a habit.
@Kafei2006: Indeed, what's up with those cutscenes? It terrified me when I saw the first one; Was kinda scared that'd be the actual in-game framerate ^^'...
