I have played about 10 minutes and this game looks like it will be a lot of fun. Too bad my brother is downloading a lot right now and I don't have the bandwidth to play. I got to say the game could use a bit more optimization because it isn't the best looking game but I had to turn down AA.

Yes it is a good looking game but I can even run crysis at 2560 x 1600 with at least 2xAA but I can't with this game.

Just watched the Gameplay Trailer.

Looks potentially interesting because it reminds me of Descent.

Cheers!

Watched some gameplay videos. Graphics are weird IMO. Sometimes it's beautiful and other times really plain, ordinary and even ugly...

Nvm I played some more today and it was smooth. It takes a bit to get used to but I think this game is fun and new.
