I was so hyped about this game when I saw the reveal trailer but now I´m just worried and disappointed.
So let´s start in a chronologically correct order.
The news about being exclousive. I was mad about this why should you sell your product like that, why do you have no faith in your work? (I have read their arguments) I still could'nt understand this decision.
Then the Mythical creatures. I thought that the game would be like three kingdoms, that there would be a historical and a mythical mode but there is not, its a mixture of both which is too weird.
Then the official trailer. I saw the graphics and I instantly googled how old the engine was. The engine is 7 years old (warscape engine, was the answer google gave me). But CA said there would be changes which I can hardly see. It looks like someone took the graphics out of a comic and redrew them on a rubberband.
Now the gameplay reveal. I watched it closely and I have to say that this is like rome 2 mixed with three Kingdoms and Warhammer. Then Characters have spells?! Thats not what I wanted, I wanted Brad Pitt (kidding).
Then the texture what is that, also most players would argue that you dont zoom in that much which is right and I totally agree with that but thats not what we were promised.
Then I watched a critics video about this if you want to watch it yourself heres the link:https://youtube.com/watch?v=YazoJOWwNe0
He has more arguments then me right now and puts them in a very worried video. The most outrageous part is when he says that: "Hector wins in every duell with Achilles" What?! I thought you guys read the Iliad, Achilles absolutly trashed Hector, Hector ran around the Trojan walls 3 Times!
So these are my worries, now to my hopes.
Dear CA Bulgaria, there is still time to fix this (work in progress as shown in gameplay) don't leave us like this, don't be like Bethesda and release an unfinished game just to patch it into a playable state. Saga games don't have to be bad. Show us your work and the heart you put into this project.
Last thing I want to say is that this is not a hate comment or else, I don't want to insult anybody and I don't even think that youre ever going to read this.
(excuse me if my english is bad in some areas)
