If you're a frequent visitor to the digi-halls of Joystiq you probably remember my all-but-glowing take
on Capcom's upcoming jet pack-based shooter Dark Void
. Yesterday I got to play the game and I'll keep it brief because it's basically the same section I watched and you know all the details. But I figured you'd like to know if it plays as good as it looks.
Short answer? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Taking cover and gunplay feels pretty Gears of War
, not that that's a bad thing or completely unexpected. But taking vertical cover, clinging to a cliffside while robots blast down toward you, feels completely fresh.
