Ah have you played it? Can you just give your general impression? Good or bad? Needs a constant internet connection? I actually have to delete space to make room for it so if it's not good... then I'll wait..

And do you know the final size? Dl size is nearly 1GB.

Thanks Redribbon

Great Sanuku! I'm installing now but it's taking forever. I deleted my Record of Agarest War for this (BUT I will reinstall it later. I love that game). I hope the deleting was worth it as it took me over an hour to install RoAW...

So far it is pretty decent. It`s not an Free Roam Shooter but more like Doom on rails. Still the Story is what keeps me playing. I already rendering the first Episode of the Walkthrough so all those that are unsure if they should make some space on their iDevice will have something to at least look at and judge on that if it's worth it or not.

I agree.

Played 5 minutes (just got it running). Long load times but it plays offline (hooray!) and the gameplay is quite smooth. I'd say gameplay wise it's probably the best of all the on rails I've played.

Only thing I'm worried about are the load times and some slow downs on older devices. My ipt5 was making me wait 3-ish minutes to start the first level. Got a long black screen.

One weird thing I noticed is the pistol shoots exactly where you tap while the assault rifle shoots above where you tap. I wonder why they did that.

I'm enjoying it but I noticed it doesn't save when you exit and go back into app, you start again from the tutorial.
