The Club demo on XBL
Anyone check this out? It's an exceptionally finely-tuned 3rd-person shooter that's based around modern-day arena combat. The premise is basically Fight Club with big guns, and it plays sort of like Black-meets-Unreal Tournament with a 3rd person perspective. As you move through a map you are scored based on how quickly, accurately and stylishly you dispatch enemies.
I spent some time tooling around in the single player game last night, and it seems like it has a lot of potential. The combination of gritty shooter with arcade scoring is surprisingly addictive in practice, and the overall presentation is as polished as you might expect from the good folks at Bizarre. I don't know if I'm sold enough on it to pick it up at full price, but if enough GWJers buy in the multiplayer could really make this worthwhile. Anyone else have any thoughts on this one?
