    Oh, how I would love to pre-order you, but with about 7 pre-orders already, this dog is going to sleep a little bit longer.

    The combat looks good. I love that the environments can be used for various types of takedowns.

    Every single trailer just sells me further and further on this game. And I was already sold enough to pre-order. If only it had an LE…

  • Damn dude, it’s like a Hong Kong action film with bits of other crime games sprinkled over it.

    It will be interesting to see how well it does once it comes out.

  • This is brutal!!!
    But I like it.

  • Wish I could say “I like it very much, United Front” in Cantonese… But never tried transliteration of it before…

    Looks like they adapt from yakuza game and that’s good thing :)
    EDIT: they added brutality too O-o

  • My comment is still unapproved?..

    I hope there are more brutal but realistic ways of defeating enemies.
