As the hordes descended upon the Koelnmesse for the first public day of Gamescom 2012, we found ourselves scurrying about like berserk rabbits once more, flitting from publisher to publisher to cram in as many preview opportunities as possible. From chatting to Firaxis about XCOM: Enemy Unknown to spending a chunk of time delving deeper into the world of Dishonored, from discussing Wargaming's World of Tanks collectible card spin-off to learning more of cross-media titles like Defiance and Dust: 514, it was another day of rich and diverse gameplay experiences. Here are our highlights from day two.
As Jon and Carl will no doubt corroborate, we could not be more excited for Sim City, and today I finally managed to get hands-on with the game. Though featuring a comprehensive tutorial, the game could not be more intuitive if it tried. The Glassbox engine has been used to fantastic effect, with each of the buttons you'll use to create your civic masterpiece providing a new layer of information, instantly delivering valuable feedback on your expanding metropolis with a click. Laying the foundations for residential, commercial, and industrial zones is as easy as it looks. Drawing roads is simple, but deeply satisfying.
Through its engine, the game is always talking to you, instructing you, and making sure that you're never out of the loop. The added bonus of challenges, both from Maxis and your fellow mayors, will add another level to the game. The presence of Citylog – no prizes for guessing the inspiration behind that social feature – delivering gameplay goals and new opportunities. The prospect of co-opetition is truly mouth-watering indeed.Click here to read more...
