Slick! That looks like a decent sci-fi and a fun game. *fingers crossed*

You can keep those fingers crossed all you want.

The trailer is full of cutscenes of the main character doing cool action scenes.

There is admittedly the chance I'll run the wrong way or start humping a lamp-post, but then you just shoot my dumb ass in the head. Seriously. I deserve it.
It's a nice trailer. Job well done to the people that made it. The game is most likely going to be crap. I've seen what Square Enix has done recently and I've played Deus Ex 2. Don't hold your breath on this one.

Well I've played Deus Ex 2 and I really liked it... And I don't mind it with the cut-scenes, it wokred in both Mass Effect games, and a myriad of other games.

A lot of people liked Deus Ex 2. What didn't sit well in my stomach was:

--Dumbed down dialogue
--No experience points system
--Level design reduced to clausterphobic corridors
--Removal of areal damage
--Removal of manual password entry
--And unless I'm mistaken, there was no hand shake effect while aiming

I hope they resolve at least half of those issues.

The first game is so lovely, as far as I'm concerned they can make a game with identical gameplay (well, some better AI as well), fresh graphics and levels, and most importantly hire proper voice actors.

Well, actually its got new stuff looking at it. I judged too soon...you never ran over a transparent roof in the original but at the same time it still looks 90% PS2/gamecube quality graphics...so its a bit puzzling.
Not that the graphics are important, but even the GUI looks the identical.

If this is BG&E2, and I hope it is, then theres no excuse not to have a Wii release based on this.

It's totally the BG&E1 chase scene. They did something with the gfx, and the voices are different.

Yeah... I haven't been on IGN in ages, I just was looking around there to see their version of the 3DS news and ran across a "BG&E2" video, as they claimed...

IGN has never been particularly good for reviews, and their sites always been stupidly heavy.
But these days its just embarrassing bad. Spam everywhere, news in the wrong place, badly labeled or sometimes not labeled at all. "TRAILER #3!" or something in a headline with nothing else.

I think they fired all their staff or something :P

IGN now also has a German subdivision, which I get automatically redirected to when going to their site (thankfully the UK version is still available from here too) It has only a fraction of the daily content that the English version has ... I wonder what they're thinking.

I always liked the design of German Wii site Wiitower. They at least know how headlines should be arranged!

IGN videos ... hah. They'll never beat Gametrailers.

Theres quite a few good Nintendo sites about, but general gaming sites seem all to be a bit blah for one reason or another.
