has updated the RTX Red Rock product spotlight
with a QuickTime movie of the game's opening cutscene (in two different sizes no less), and an image of the game's box art
Now contains the opinions of two jerks, so beware.<:MORENEWS:>Jake says:
My feelings are mixed about both the trailer and the box art. The visuals in the opening cutscene are pretty slick, especially for a 3D game designed in-house at LEC... but the contents of said opening cutscene is a little bit funky. I can't tell if it's a little on the corny side, or if its genuinely trying to be campy. The RTX box art
isn't too bad, but it's nowhere near the quality of the KOTOR
Now I'm really curious to see how this game measures up in its full version. The visuals are nice, and I played it a bit at a recent LucasArts press event and it was pretty fun. Moderately corny opening though, eh? Better wait for the Mojo review.Spaff says:
Ok so Jake asked me to post another jerks' opinion... Personally I like the intro. Based on what I know about the gameplay, it's going to be an action game as opposed to a deep plot RPG type wotsit. This intro reminds me of things like Evil dead, Duke Nukem, Serious Sam and even Starship troopers, all of which were great! Just look at the bit when he puts his fake arm on.. Army of Darknes anyone? Grooooovy!
So yeah, if the gameplay continues that theme, with tongue in cheek comments, and an overly blatant cheesey story, it should prove to be of amusement. :)
It's nice to see LEC making a game that will probably be unlike anything they have ever made before. P.S the CGI is a vast improvement on anything they have ever put out. G'night!
