    GoldenEye: Rogue Agent > This game.

    Seriously the controls are better on that game. This game is just "walk walk turn shoot, walk open door shoot, walk shoot". There is no tention, no challenge nothing to keep me interested at all. Rogue Agent is crap but from memory I could stomach it for more than 20 minutes before turning it off.

    I was hyped for this when I first heard about it a couple of years back but the videos released really put me off, I'm really surpirsed that it got hyped so much just because its a FPS.

    It really remind me of this homebrew PDA game I played a while back.

    Stick to Quake 2 DS, Doom, Duke Nukem, Metroid Prime Hunters and even the two Call of Duty games. Moon is slightly better because of the controls and stroy. Dementium is a different sort of game its more survival horror. I may try it again later just to give it a better chance.

    Whoa, it ACTUALLY CAME OUT. [​IMG]
    I'm laughing at all the disappointment that people are experiencing after the months of hype. I'll give it a go, but I don't expect much.

    i dont know if this would qualify as GTA type hype situation but this is surely a good game so much so that even rayder who apparently hates fps is even so hyped
    i think this is worth a try and is not bad as u may think it is... one of the better ds games if not a good ds games

    I hadn't heard anything about this game before I saw the release, but having played it I can say it's quite okay.

    It controls well enough once you increase the sensitivity in the options.
    The graphics are acceptable. Reminds me of playing Quake 2 on an old computer without a 3D graphics card.

    For those NDS emulator types, the game crashes on startup for no$GBA but appears to be playable on Desmume.

    Good to see that at least it works on flash carts.

    Anyone else problems with this game on Acekard2i? When I load it for the first time it works, but when I load the AK menu after that, the game doesn't load anymore and the icon of the game is gone. It works fine on my EZ5i. Any idea?

    Ok, having played the game for a short time I don't understand why it's being bashed. Once again I don't think Graffiti have helped themselves, as they did with Black Sigil by delaying and delaying they build hype for a game that people would otherwise just take in their stride.

    As for the graphics, yeah they could be a little crisper but this is a DS not a PS3 or even a PSP. And talking of the PSP I don't think it comes anywhere close to the way the DS handles the control scheme of FPS's, to me this is the closest you'll get to the way a PC handles them, I love it.

    As I say I've only played it a short time so I don't know how repetitive it will get like Moon or Dementium, both of which I still really liked but I'm still willing to give it a good go before I diss it!

    If you delay it once, it'll get slightly more hype. But if you've delayed it the amount of times they did, it's just stupid. And Black Sigil never got much hype. The only hype this got was from people here, and even then there wasn't a hype thread like Scribblenauts.

    The graphics are 3-D, that's about it. It's no where near as polished and in-depth as Riz Zoawd or Kingdom Hearts. Yet again, much isn't. I guess it's comparable to lower grade 3-D titles. As for controls, I find them unplayable. They want to you manage 2 shoulder buttons, both the D and ABXY pads, and the touch screen? It's a terrible control scheme and you either have to use the stylus and sacrifice half the control scheme or make it unplayable with a thumbstrap. If they just copied CoD's control scheme it would've worked.

    Odds are most people will find it terrible before it gets repetitive.

    Only played through the first part of the game where you end up meeting up with another dude at the end, but I'm liking it a lot more than I anticipated. The level design feels really good in a Doom kinda way. The character models are fugly, but the environments are pretty well rendered, I think. I'm also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the gun sounds, and the music, though repetitive, is pretty enjoyable. Feels kinda old-school. I'm cool with that. Wasn't expecting it to be much fun, really, but I'll probably end up playing through this sucker.

    this game was delayed so much that it isn't worth the 36.7 MB download or the 40$ or so if you want to buy it.

    Its just crap..
