Surprised there was no thread. I just played the demo and it was so much fun. Plays very fast and loose. Great visuals. PS5 exclusive.

Trailer doesn't look good, but I'll download the demo if you recommend it.

Can’t hurt. It’s free. It’s a very free style movement and great game design. I saw 10 minute GP on YouTube and looked unique and fun.

Just don’t blame me if you hate. All I took from you is precious time away from family. 😜

I really wanna play this. Sadly, I don't have a PS5.

This is actually a pretty good review from someone who did 100% of the Demo pointing out pretty much everything about the demo and game in general......I'm still on the fence on this one...I really like what i see but seems there's missing answers and still questions...

I watched the IGN review and the main character seems annoying and unlikeable. I won't be playing this one.

That review made this seem less like a game and more like a bloated demo. Real shame. I was looking forward to this.

Same here. I had high hopes for this one. I will for sure pick this up one day, sooner rather than later, but it's going to need to be closer to that $25 mark.

I can wait too. Too bad, was looking good from onset, but I guess not. Maybe some major patches would do something, but doubt it would change drastically.

There were no playtesters that gave notes on how bad the main character is?

They put the demo up on Steam the other day, so I downloaded it and played for a while. Ooof.

Might have to wait for sub-$20 before I bite.

Re: Forspoken —> 1/23/23 —> PS5

Ive seen a few on my friends list playing this so I messaged one to get their opinion....He said he was loving the game. At the beginning the story sort of takes shape, it's a bit slow at first when you start getting powers and upgrades. visually he said it's pretty impressive. He fought the first major Boss and said oh yea, more challenging but also you're getting better powers, tougher enemies....and world is fun to explore since you can basically move any way you want.

Here's a review of a YouTuber (850K Subscribers) that seems straight forward and honest...doesn't bash or completely praises the game but does highlight what works, looks good and what could be better. there's some stuff in there I haven't seen or knew.....
