PostSubject: Turning Point demo   Mon Feb 11, 2008 3:13 am

I just tried the Turning Point demo.

WWII setting, everything up until about 1940 or so..? Winston Churchill dies, basically reshaping history. The game starts while you're standing on girders in a building being constructed, and dozens of bombers fly overhead and take out New York City.

I played for about 20 minutes and quit because I found myself getting bored. Yes, bored.

This isn't Call of Duty 4, people. The game has ok ideas, but I find it extremely hard to believe that this runs on the Unreal Engine..?!

No way. I thought I was playing a PS2 game. Nothing, in my 20 minutes of playing, proved to me that this is a next-gen game. It just got annoying..

Bad shooting. Using iron sights on an old WWII rifle is bad enough, but I couldn't hit ANYTHING from roughly 20 yards away. Trying for a simple headshot with a rifle when all you can see is a head is out of the question. The weapon jumps and the controller shakes like mad.

Bad graphics. No, seriously..not even close to subpar. I don't know what I was expecting, but this is a game I was looking forward to. Looks like I wait until EndWar, and get a real war game Very Happy

Based on what the demo showed me, even a 5.5/10 might be too generous.

Terrible game. Don't buy it.
I rented this, and regreted that I didn't rent something else.

Indeed, everything about it was useless, I nearly raged and kicked the xbox it was such a waste of money. I was thinking it'd be such a good game, as I've always liked Historical shooters, like MOH on the PS2. But this is a disgrace to the Xbox. Shame on you Developers of Turning Point!

As I said in my review of the pointless demo. Lol.

All historic shooters to me, have gotten REALLY old. This one is just annoying. They could put this game on "Wii", and make all the characters weeble wobbles with no legs.


Yes, I'm very anti-Wii.

I love the Wii. I love it! Just the fact that it's "Excersising" that's great. It actually makes the sad Chineese "Nintendo" gamers that play 24/7 sound healthy! And cool! < Which they aren't Razz

The fact that it makes you exercise is cool. Revolutionary.

But in my book, the Wii is not a current generation console. It cannot support sophisticated games with photo realistic graphics. All current gen games should be able to do that. But I guess Nintendo knows what they're doing. Wii has sold more consoles than any console out there. So I guess its keeping people in shape. Great. But you won't be seeing one take the place of my 360.

Wow. Don't get me started on that game. It almost as horrible gameplay as DOOM lol. (yeah, great classic but face it, knowing what we know now, that game sucks lol...but then again so will COD4 to our kids lol...)

It makes me made put the real disappointment if you ask me. Is Fuel Of War...

That game could have been amazing. It had a sweet story line, great concept, cool gadgets but the gameplay was so terrible I wanted to cry... Sad
