Eliminate Disappointment Thread

As you guys all know, the game that a lot of us have been waiting for, Eliminate, was finally released to the public. I, myself, was very excited for this game. But now that I have it, I'm not sure what all the hype was about. To put it bluntly, I don't really care for this game anymore.

What's weird is that I thought I liked it at first but then I later realized that it wasn't all that great. When I first got the game and joined my first online match, I did have fun. The only problem was that the controls were annoying. I used to play a lot of Modern Combat and I got good at that game, and so I thought that I just needed time to warm up. But 6 matches later I felt that I was still having about the same amount of hardship as when I started. And so I went back to Modern Combat after putting it down for all this time, and man was I surprised. Modern Combat was better in every way. The game felt smoother, the graphics looked better, and most importantly the controls were 10 times better. After playing Modern Combat again, I almost don't even want to play Eliminate anymore. What do you guys think? Anyone on the same boat as me?

Oh, and I just looked it up, Gameloft is still going to release their multiplayer update for Modern Combat.

I haven't seen Eliminate yet (this whole get yourself a Canadian account thing is insane) but there is no way, even if it looked and played like the best console FPS ever, that it could ever come close to living up to the hype generated on TA.

I'm predicating that we will be seeing a lot of people complaining about the gameplay and even more complaining about the payment system. These people will be outnumbered by those who leap to it's defense to explain why the complainer didn't get it.

Yes, OP, i agree with you that MC Sandstorm is a better looking, better playing game, thanks to the floating V.Joystick but you have to understand that eliminate is a multiplayer game, thus more frantic than Sandstorm.

The Eliminate game is OK, i just hate the ngmoco worshipping that goes on, on there forums.

Yeah, I definitely got all into the hype for this game. I guess its the hype that probably ruined this game for me. I mean, it by no mean sucks. It's just that I was expecting this game to blow everything else out of the water. My expectations were too high.

It blew everything out of the water for me, except, maybe, Modern Combat

I agree with you derek. Wen I first picked up this game, it was so hard for me to get used to the game. After the first day or so, I'm just out there shootin people and having a great time doing it. But, I guess it's all about personal preference. Some people will like the game and on the other hand, others will not...
