Whats the big deal?
I don't know why people feel negative about this game. Is it because it's a shooter on the family friendly Kinect? The Kinect isn't just for families you know, and you'll have to deal with ALOT more games like this coming out.
Politics?! Were talking fantasy=Gaming
Tazra, I and I'm sure others don't play games with politics in mind! C'mon man, were playing games to escape reality otherwise we couldn't play 3/4's of the games that come out now if we were to apply our real world ethical and moral standards before buying!!! Let's see, in this game I'm a fugitive killer, no can't buy that one cuz that's just wrong and in this one I get to go around abducting people then shoot them out of a cannon to kill other people so, no, I can't play that one either and shame on Microsoft etc. for publishing this stuff! These are games, not reality, and this game may just turnout to be alright!
what is this game. i want on youtube and it was a shooter but how will they do this on kinect. also the game release date is coming up and they didnt write a preview or a preview video. i might want this game if they say what it is. blackwater could be many things but i cant see it being a shooter
Good concept but not quite
After seening the trailer for blackwater I had decently high hopes for it but it unfortuantely fell a little short of my expectations. The gameplay reminds me of the old time crisis or house of the dead arcade games. While the concept for the game is a great idea it lacks in the way it tracks your movements. Moving around, jumping, crouching, etc tracks great, aiming your weapon; one of the biggest parts of the game, is not so great. You put your arm out like holding a rifle to bring up your sights but it seems like your aiming very low almost like trying to shoot from the hip. You try to get a bead on your target but your target sights tend to jump back and forth making it hard to hit the enemy. The other drawback on this is that it automatically fires for you. While this is the best way to do it for kinects; once you do get the enemy in your sights there's a slight delay before you fire. So while your waiting to fire the other enemies are shooting the heck out of you. With this way of targeting and shooting you can only fire on one emeny at a time instead of being able to spray some bullets across multiple enemies standing right next to each other. In sniper mode aiming is a little better but the automatic firing isn't good. Instead of waiting until you have a nice headshot to fire you start firing bullets even when the enemy isn't in your crosshairs. You do have the option to switch to using the controller which makes aiming alot easier and you can fire when ready, but this takes away from the overall gameplay. Imagine playing house of the dead with a regular controller, not overly fun, If I'm going to play a FPS with a controller I want to play Halo or something like that that gives you free roam. So while the idea for the game is great it falls short in the way it tracks you for aiming you weapons. I think this game would have been alot better if it were made for the PS3 Move where you can have a gun in your hand making aiming feel a little more natural and have a button you push so you fire when your ready to. I'll hold on to this game and probably play it every now and again. For the rest of you thinking about getting it I'd wait until gamestop has it used for maybe $15 because that's about all I feel it's worth.
Nice try, but don't buy!!
I only played training, so take it or leave. It was enough for me to know the game is not worth the time of day. You do NOT even pull a trigger. You wave your hand over the target, it waits a second, then fires automatically. That is kinda stupid... Like I said, it was a good thought, maybe worth a shot when Kinect 2 comes out, but this is just a waste of time.
going to be a very good game
this game is going to be good and will get it this is a game worth getting
It's a terrible idea to base a game around a name synonymous with war crimes. I'm sorry it was ever created, I'm sorry Microsoft is willing to be associated with it, and I'm sorry GameStop is willing to sell it.
Best game for almost any system ever!
Okay, this game is beast. You are a Blackwater Agent who is assigned to this city called Harri. There are 4 people in your squad, Smash and Baird are the only ones I can remember at this time. You can play using the Kinect Sensor or the XBox 360 controller, so you don't need the Kinect to play it. It is possibly one of the best games ever. In Kinect mode, you just aim at the people with your hand, and crouch, and sidestep, that is the best mode to play in. The controller mode isn't as fun, it is boring, actually. Hope this has been helpful!
dude back off of microsoft if we didn't have teams like blackwater we wouldn't have the fredoms we do.
Warcrimes: The Game!
I am in complete shock that this game is being published. So I am guessing the premise of this title will involve you shooting down innocent unarmed civilians and breaking contracts. Must be a pretty deep game for the Kinect when the only thing being fired back at you are rocks and watermelons. WOOHOO! I just can't wait for the DLC, I'm sure it will be called Xe Services: Getting Away with More War Crimes. I won't be touching this title with a ten foot pole and shame on Microsoft for allowing it to happen.
