Well, seemedly, the iap will be similar to MC3. That is a good thing because you didn't have to buy or grind away to get progress in the single or the multi player.
That alone has sorta restored my faith in Gameloft.
And they have always made some very good good shooters for iOS.
So all in, graphics, gameplay, premium (not), some iap elements but not obtrusive, means they actually listened to their long term customers.
I've basically bought all their games on iOS but gave up on them when freemium became their way but shark dash and this are sorta changing my mind.

Why couldn't that guy aim down the sights, or use the push, freeze, or time stop abilities? Other than that, really cool. Can't wait for this game, hopefully i'll get my iPad 3 beforehand

one thing i dont like about gameloft games is that in every game the colors are so saturated they look unrealistic and distracting. the graphics looks like its been through an instagram filter...

The explosions look great as well and if you look at the enemy when they get blown up the physics look top notch. I'm not sure if it's rag doll physics but if it's not it's pretty close.
Even if the multiplayer does get hacked, which hopefully it wont or at least hopefully updates will sort it out when it does, it still looks like it'll have to be bought for the single player alone. Multiplayer will be the icing on the cake.
Damn it, it's still an instabuy simply to encourage premium games rather than freemium.

I think it'll come out on the 10th because they are letting people play the game early on the Thursday and Friday preceding that. If not that then the 17th

I doubt it would come on the 10th. They just announced it, they usually take at least 3 weeks to hype big games. I'd say the 17th or later is more realistic. It looks like we can look forward to a steady stream of new info in the meantime...
