News Comments > H-Hour: World's Elite Early Access
1. Re: H-Hour: World's Elite Early Access May 20, 2015, 00:25 killerpony
 
I love shooters. I especially love tactical shooters. This game is currently far from a tactical game.

3p, with a 1p zoom on mousewheel that eventually turns into a view through binoculars (?) if you scroll too far (no sight view). Little feedback, fast floaty movement, weird vertical parallax issues even in 1p, poor sound, terrible animations, little gameplay.

Only TDM apparently (at least that's all that showed up in the browser) which is actually single elimination as far as I could tell.

I only saw one map, and initial impressions were not favorable - you could get shot immediately (like 10') out of the spawn area.

I could deal with all of this if it offered something else of value, but I couldn't find it. I dig early access in many cases, but this seems like pre-early access...I'd suggest staying away for now. I honestly didn't expect it to be as bad as it is, I hope it shapes up.

How can you condem shooter gameplay in general but only talk about single player?

There are some points in this article, but overall it shows a shallow understanding of shooters. I didn't think this opinion was particularly insightful.

The beta for this game was hysterical! Unfortunately, I suspect that is not what they were shooting for...

Oh, bummer! I read the title and thought that Giant Aliens were being patched in, that sounded cooler than the actual patch notes....

Spoken like someone who hasn't shipped a bomb.

Often as a developer you smell the stink of a failing game much more keenly (you're much closer to it for longer), but you're still sad when it's panned on ship.

Add in the idea of crunching for X months on that bomb and well...yeah, it hurts. At the end of the day though, you're still making games for a living. Well, unless you're not, due to being let go.

If you like turn based strategy with a WWII bent, this game is really good. Hidden complexities underneath a simple interface, clear visuals, combined with decent enemy AI made it a standout for me.

Counter-Strike, which is arguably the origin of the modern, military, tactical, team-based FPS genre.

It's not a very strong argument though...Rainbow Six was out a year before CS got started.

I love the style; the artwork, the music and so on are fantastic. The game play's ok -- it's a tower defense game, and the only twist on it really is that you can move the towers in their "orbit rings" around to kill enemies on their paths. On the harder difficulties, I've found that tactic necessary to get all of the medals for the higher levels.

Overall, I'd say it's ok...keep in mind that in general I love TD style games though.

"let go" is more akin to "fired" than "laid off"...

Let's see...it's only on PS3, meaning it's exclusive to PS3. What does exclusive usually mean? Oh that's right, lots of money to the developer!

That makes sense for this kind of maneuver.

Good luck to all the guys at Pi, I'm guessing they all found new spots quickly -- I've worked with them before, and they are a talented bunch.

For talking so much about "realism", you'd think they'd at least fix errors like "Automatic Combat Rifle" and screwing up the pictures for the weapon sights under the ACR data...

Gah, I want new guns / vehicles / features...where's the list of those? Instead I see AKS74, PKMG, T72, etc...all the same old toys I've had forever! A new campaign doesn't excite me a lot unless they actually improved the AI*.

*Not just claim they did.

It could be those "optimizations" are "fix the game-breaking crash bug on the third level". Although really a talented programmer can get some serious renderer optimizations in in just a few days sometimes.
