Check out the second half of the demo for the Agency straight from the E3 2009 show floor.
Man it sucks that this was canceled. This game looked PHAT!!! I hope they bring it back and release it some day. (If Sony doesn't go bankrupt from all the upcoming lawsuits that is...)
I just feel bad for the folks who spent a few years making hte game....the dude demoing seemed proud of the game only for it to get the axe.
I think this game had potential, it doesnt have the best graphics, I know, but it looked like fun even in this unpolished demo. Why would they cancel this? Probably due to budget cuts...
Is the character he's playing suppose to be 4ft tall? The character to environment scale just does not look right.
this game is only on PC and PS3 ,. and already xbox fanboys keep saying its NOTT a ps3 exclusive,.. yet they keep wanking off saying gears of war,. left for dead,. mass effect ,.halo,. are all xbox exclusives ? lmao fanboys need to be shot between the eyes.
i dont think they will be getting any awards soon with those graphics. but in all it looks easy and fun...
This game doesn't seem to be able to support a large number of players gameplay-wise, i.e. that mansion would be just FLOWING with agents photographing stuff, and other stuff. I feel a little dissapointed as well. I mean, it cuts out the realism of espionage that there are more thinly-veiled, cheesy spies in there than either actual guests, or real "spies".
@VivaRevolucion: I think you have conveyed exactly what i was trying to say. The espionage and stealthing was a little lacking (my opinion is just from the video, it may be much better than we think it is, just not presented properly) and I was expecting something more along the lines of Splinter cell or MGS4. An MMO version of anyone of those games would be epic...
Man, I had a bad impression of this game... I thought it was going to be more like "Splinter Cell meets Wow", expecting a much more serious plot and more realistic character stylizations, but it seems like its more of a "007 meets Kim Possible" type of game, which isn't bad, though disappoints a little. Would need more looking into
This demo was sorta saddening... The atmosphere seems to be perfect for the game. But the animations and stealth areas seem to be lacking. I just feel like being a game about spies, super agents, and mercs that the stealth parts were weak... I wanna see some choke outs, judo flips, and matrix kicks in the face you know what I'm saying? Instead of this weak little melee hit. It just seems to me that a game like this should have a lot more style to the game play is all.
The genre sounds pretty new and fresh. I am really hoping that it plans out to be a GOOD spy game and not just a run and gun shootemup.
I really hope this is a tutorial level, the gameplay looks pretty basic so far (which may be inevitable with a console-crossover). I'm looking forward to this game, and I'm going to be really disappointed if it turns out to be Call of Duty with tuxedoes. Here's hoping gameplay is more complex later.
This game has some promise. Different and fresh for a change of pace. May have to check it out...now where's my spy camera?
I was excited about this but now I think I'll hold my breathe. Doesn't look terribly exciting even during the first part where they got into the chateau, or even at the end with the instance. Looks like a simple shooter.
i really cans ee this game being pretty fun....with a few twearks to animation...it could be great. now date on release they probably still improving it quite a bit!
@Skull-Fire: this is a game demo, not an interview. If you want the interview then check out Milton Hal on The Agency.
This is one of the worst interviews for this game. I saw another one on youtube once which tells you a lot more about this game, which will be awesome
Nice party. Everyone is standing around.... Iuno. It seems like it could be cool, but I don't think it'll be that good. I will give it a benefit of the doubt and probably just give it a try though,
not too enthused. Free MMO is tempting but idk if it'll be worth playing over some of the other games coming out soon.
