Devs say Turning Point:FOL is better than the demo… PROMISE!

Most people agree on one thing when it comes to the lackluster demo of Turning Point: Fall of Liberty..

What a waste of potential!

The premise sucks you in but the “been there, done that” gameplay just puts a damper on the whole “Nazi’s running in my backyard” storyline. The developers at Spark Unlimited created a blog post over at IGN stating that the retail game has fixed the problems(aka Suckiness) that are in the demo.

Spark Unlimited even put a brief rundown together, aww you shouldn’t have!

Optimized targeting and movement: Optional control settings have been refined to alleviate sluggishness in the slowest setting and the ‘on ice’ feeling at the faster settings. Also, a user-defined soft lock has been added which means that controls can be set so once an enemy is hit with a bullet the crosshair will ‘stick’ to the target.

Refined AI behavior: The dynamic intelligence and pathfinding for enemies has also been enhanced. The ‘hot point’ based system should add to Turning Point’s replay experience.

Ammo levels and grappling optimized: Up until final submissions, the team has been listening to playtest feedback and doing everything possible to create a ‘civilian at war’ feeling. The end result is an experience more visceral than the demo, relying less on repeated ammo refills, and more on the grappling and the hand-to-hand combat.

Final Mip-mapping and texture levels: The art team has also been able to further optimize lighting, textures, and effects throughout the title.

So, is there hope for the game? Let’s see when the reviews start pouring in. Until then the game still counts as a flop for me.
