I have. Even an Xbox 360 could output this. It really isn't comparable to anything on the PC that has come out recently.

Anyways, I'm seeing all these people saying how good it looks. I'm pretty sure that if that's the case, we're looking at totally different games. Modern Combat 4 was pretty. Infinity Blade 2 was pretty. This... Is not pretty. It's good looking, but not that good.

I'm also extremely skeptical about the controls. I saw that trailer today, and thought, "yuck, Gameloft's done it better for years."

The controls are the only thing that interest me in The Drowning. Since it is free, It will be a day one download for a test drive, followed by a day one delete.

I hope that Counterstrike can finally be ported if it works...

I hope they allow you to change the controls to your liking, the controls that would be good are the ones everyone is used to. Every time Someone try's to reinovate controls, they come out to be point and click type controls and that really disappoints me.

Finally revealed. The GM of Ngmoco sweden was the Former Battlefield executive producer so it could be really interesting. He's also a firm believer that IOS will be the death of consoles.
At least he put his money where his mouth is here, those screenshots are absolutely gorgeous. Though it should use an "intuitive control scheme" which is worrying since they hate Virtual Joysticks and lets be honest, this is the scheme that has worked better with FPS. Oh and freemium : (

Edit: Yeah the control scheme sounds atrocious on the ipad. Tap to shoot? When an ennemy is right in the middle of the screen this is gonna be funny...

Wow, I was blown to bits when I saw this. The trailer is amazing. Graphics are top notch. Totally came out from no where.

But I indeed am suspect with the control and IAP scheme that may derail the game.
