  • So, I heard of how awesome Shadow Complex is and checked it out last night.

    First I want to say that for a downloadable game, it looks beautiful. The environments look great and playing it for about 30mins already showed me some great gameplay moments.

    But, I couldn't keep playing because of the awful animations. I know that the controls needs to be responsive in a game, but this game has so many jerky and jarring blendings inbetween the animations. It's not just the transitions. The timing of the animations such as his jumps feel unpolished and rushed. Even the cutscenes has pops and mistakes that could have been correctly easily.

    So, my question to you guys is how important is animations in games? Do bad animations ever pull you away from the engaging gaming experiences? There are games like Fallout 3 that could have introduced me to that property but I know that I won't be able to get into the game because I'll be distracted by the bad animations.
