Holy smokes!  This is incredible.  There were several times during the gameplay video where my jaw literally dropped.  This has quickly jumped to the top of my "must-have" list.

You need to check the video out now.

If it's the same one I saw about a week ago, I completely agree - I had many a jaw-dropping moment as I was watching this video as well.

I can't wait for this game.

I just watched it thought it looked great, but I'm not big on First Person rpgs/action games. As I found with Oblivion. Still looks fast paced and interesting.

4 hr 53 min to download.  No way.  Maybe a month or so from now when hype dies down.

Did you sign up for the free registration at Fileshack, so they bump up your download speed?  It only took me about 10 minutes to get it.

And here I was beginning to think PC gaming was dead for me until Diablo 3. I'm all over this.

My initial thoughts about the game have been completely changed by that video.

The combat was incredible!

I would still like to try it first, but if it is as good as it appeared, this is a must buy for me.

That definitely looked fun, especially all of the different sword styles and moves.  Watching him guide flame balls high up into the air and arc them back down onto baddies was too cool.  I don't remember any fantasy game doing that before.  I suppose if you can make fire launch from your fingertips, you can also control where it goes.  

The only thing bugging me is that something seems a little off with the animations and perspective.  Maybe it was just the video footage.

They kept saying how non-linear this game is, but after watching it, all of the "environmental weapons" just felt staged.

that was my thought...is there another way to kill that big cyclops at the end, or do you have to figure that one trick out?  the interactive environments are cool, but it's not as much fun if you're always looking for the one way out of a bad situation.  i also thought the range of your melee attacks was a little off...seemed like some of the sword attacks and kicks work from a little too far away.  that said, there's still a lot of impressive stuff in the video...

The video definately put that game high on my list.  Ubisoft generally has a pretty good track record for releasing completed games, so I have high hopes.

Pretty cool video, though I wonder how a "layman" would do playing the game.

In another example they stabbed the cyclops after it bent down to grab the player from inside a hidey hole.  In this case, the swinging log missed the cyclops.

After watching this and seeing the new screenshots released today, I've bumped this one up to my most anticipated games this year.

Looks absolutely incredible.
