post #4841 of 9533
Well I don’t want to say is sucks but it kind of sucks

few hours of sniper here are the most glaring issues

HIT DETECTION or lack of it. Now I know I know, it’s me and for the most part it very well could be but there are too many times with perfect shots directly to the chest from less than 50 yards and two of four shots register. Next time, exact same shot (your snipe spots are limited) BANG two shot kill.
BULLET SPEED this is a funny one as a cross map shot can be instant or I can have a tracer which takes a second of travel time.. or more ... or less. Distance makes no difference; Tracers from shots may or may not show as well as bullet drop is also inconsistent. The old forty five degree angle still holds that there is almost no bullet correction when shooting up or down at a forty five degree angle.
UNREMARKABLE LANDSCAPE brown ground that pretty much sums the entire map I played up in two words. It’s like BF 1942 where the landscape is painted with a brush of one colour. Not very complex textures imo, not many textures period, very limited and boring to look at. You will not find yourself just staring at the beauty of something as it’s all just so meh!
TRANSPORTATION omg, like cardboard cars you made as kids for the school play. Ugly as sin but the heli seems to have had a little extra attention. Animations are limited and cars just seem to move over the landscape (1st person perspective as I did not spend any time in 3rd person) without any interaction with the type of ground they move across. From a distance watching them go it’s again pretty MEH!

Now I’m not saying it’s a bad game. I launched into all my games without delay, I saw no indication of lag or peeps floating, appearing out of thin air or glitching around. The interface was full of lots of stuff to look at and click on, lots of upgrades for the sniper (I saw like four guns) and many other things like zip lines, grappling hooks, and scopes of all sizes.

This game on the largest map was a sniper nightmare. Much too close to the action and constantly getting run over or too far away for scopes to be affective. I tried at all angles and distances with the default weapon. You can’t get two quick shots off before getting killed with pretty much any weapon, I’m sure they could run up and slap you to death before the second shot leaves the chamber. The game is not sniper friendly at all, it’s like they hate the sniper and made efforts to make gameplay unfun for that class. The guys running and gunning looked to be having a blast, lots of action and shooting and running going on. Dust storm comes up and as a sniper you may as well go make a cup of Joe or grab a smoke as there will be nothing for the sniper to do until it passes.

This game looks PS3 quality, that dam repetitive sound of a pop can right under you no matter where you are on the map, the Hawk that you never see but is constantly screaming at you, the stupid generic comments of how much ground your losing from some random guy and the same guy making all the comments all the time. They could have used a few voice actors to mix it up with.

That’s what I see so far, it may get better but I did not have a lot of fun playing. Destiny is like the Garden of Eden when looking at Hardline. I will continue to try it out over the 8 days but honestly at this point I can’t see it getting much better.

EA was right when they said its Gonna Work as it does but boring is boring and no matter how many times you can log in it does not make a boring game fun.



sorry for the spelling and all that, wifey just woke up for the night shift and wanted the pc while I wrote this. Had to get it out while it was still fresh in my mind

Your experience sounds just like mine with the alpha testing of Hardline on PC.

...Hopefully they won't screw up Battlefront, but I'm not holding my breath.

Six hour session last night with hardline, mostly sniper. I used the 60" tv instead of the PC monitor to play and it helped somewhat, made the game look a tad better. Ranked up lvl 11 and got in with a decent squad of peeps who actually used mics. Lots of rage with bullet detection by all members of my squad. I had a much better time with the game but I did have to shut the game down and restart a number of times when servers lagged noticabley.

I loved my Keymander, smooth as glass, exactly like gaming on PC with same button placement. I turned the sensitivity up to 100% and found that I could spin so fast it was uncontrollable lol. Dropping it down to 50% made it perfect for me. Most my points came from spotting getting about 20 awards per game just for spotting. Ive been hording my money for a better gun and currently sitting on 40k. I plan on lvling up my toon a bit more and see if I can unlock some more guns before grabbing one of the four offered right now.

If anyone will be on today let me know and we can squad up thumb.gif

Anyone played the new ps plus game? apotheon or whatever it is called? Not bad.
post #4846 of 9533
I looked at them but meh! I want to see some AAA titles like tomb raider or metal gear. PS+ is just to get me online MP

Seems they have fixed some of the hit detection in hardline. This morning I saw a much improved game over any of the previous games I have had. Glad I didnt delete the copy, I was hovering over the delete button many times yesterday biggrin.gif I can actually get shots to register, much improved bullet speed and drop off.
