    This has a 9/10 in 360Gamer, the closest thing you will play to Zelda on the X360.... I'm sold :-)

    I'm quite interested in this. Seems to be flying sort of under the radar for most people, though.

    Looks like fun, I hadn't heard of it until I saw the ads on TV. Playing as one of the horsemen can only be a good thing. Pity you can't choose though :-)

    I suppose you delay your game into the New Year to avoid the big hitters and then a certain Bayonetta arrives with 40/40, 10/10's all over it on the same day. D'OH!

    Been watching this for a while and will probably pick it up at launch

    Hellbook 4 takes a look at War's steed Ruin.

    You need Ruin to get to certain places that you cannot access but sometimes Ruin can't help and you may need to use a different method of travel!

    I'm absolutely amped for this game, looking forward to it more than Bayonetta.

    This needs more coverage, everyone should know about this game because it looks like it's going to be fantastic, I'd hate to see it largely ignored by Average Joe Gamer.

    Is it just me or does the visual style seem vaguely to WoW?

    I'm really not sure which game to get between this and Bayonetta...So far its Bayonetta due to having played the demo but I'm intriqued by both of these. I may just get both on release day.

    WoW's entire art style from Warcraft III onward is pretty much derived from Joe Mad's (Creative Director at Vigil Games) early run on the X-Men comic books and subsequently his own book Battle Chasers. I think thats why its catching the eye of so many WoW fans.

    That style started back in 93 and has been much imitated ever since and while I am not saying hes single handedly responsible for Blizzards art style its clearly derived from it. Its no bad thing though because it pushed that style to a lot of people and I think from what I have seen Darksiders is another evolution of that.

    Joes X-Men Style (1994ish)

    Joes Battle Chasers (1998ish)

    of course they'll ignore it. Won't there be some rock band/guitar hero/fifa 500 bollocks out by then?
    And thats fine and dandy by me. Fine and dandy.

    Mmmm so is this basically Brütal Legend crossed with Dante's God of War in the art style of World of Warcraft accompanied with the special editions of Assassin's Creed II?

    Well, I loved (and am still loving) BL, and I'm really excited about this.

    This does indeed look excellent but despite all the impressive promotional stuff... people aren't talking about it.

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeird.

    Guess it will sneak up.

    I've just pre-ordered from Play.com as you get a War outfit for your 360 avatar if you pre-order.

    (picture of outfit in link)

    I like a good 3rd person fighting game... And this does look like it could be quite good. I enjoyed Brutal Legend too so I should be fine :-D

    That's a preview rather than a trailer, ecosse. Looks pretty great, though. I'm hopeful for this one!

    That is looking pretty good. It's nice to see some decent amounts of game play and it looks like there is a bit of variety to it.

    If it's Zelda done right then that's all well and good. Hopefully they didn't follow the Zelda template so closely that they copied all the rubbish bits too. I'm actually hoping for something a bit more Soul Reaver than Link.
