This is a video review of Modern Combat: Domination that appeared on PSN yesterday. It’s a review of only the demo where search & destroy is the only game mode.
While I appreciated that they used an objective game mode for their demo it was a shame they didn’t include any of the other modes in the 45 minutes allowed to play the demo.
The game may simply be too slow for some people. The default sensitivity is like wading through chest high water. You turn ever so slowly but that can I’m sure be fixed by upping the sensitivity.
In the demo I didn’t play against humans at all, it was all bots and they were of a difficulty level to match recruit level (or maybe normal) in Black Ops Combat Training. Even though it was all bots I sometimes got “room full” errors when trying to join games!
In the review I wasn’t too sure if I’d get the game but after sleeping on it I probably will. It’s only $8 but I’ll wait a few days for the metacritic score to fill out first.
Edit: While writing this post this morning I almost forgot one huge glaring bug that I mention in the video. I couldn’t hear any sound. My headset is hooked up via the digital output while my HDPVR is hooked up via component cables and as you can hear from the video was able to record audio.
I thought it might be my setup, but I tried another game and that was fine. I found one person complaining of the same thing on a forum (that was down when I tried it, I checked the cached copy) so try the demo before you buy. That’s one bug that will stop me buying this game.
PS. Two positive reviews of the full game:
Looks like I’m the only one with sound problems!
