So, instead of working on nice things like Balance, making the game more playable, giving back conquest mode, fixing it so more then just assault can recover from being knock off cliffs, making options to make death a lot less punishing....

We get insane mode (We can't balance mode)
New Maps that are an eyesore and show off how "Meh" your graphics are with poor navmeshing, showing how poor the AI is, Hats, Pterodactyles able to rip me from a vehichle WITH A ROOF, and punishment for using the vehicles?

I gave you a second chance and you proved yourselves failures once more :D

im not one for hating on a game for no reason. however after played dino beatdown and then watching this

Youtube.com

the game has clearly not changed. but more importantly for myself i think steam needs to start checking the games they take on to their store (like the apple app store does). because quite frankly just re branding a game under a different name and claiming it as something new is downright fraudulent.

im not going to leave malicious comments and just flame, but i do think spiral studios need to have a good hard think about what they actually doing.
