Nexuiz – Video Preview – A Shooter How They Used To Be

Nexuiz – Video Preview – A Shooter How They Used To Be

Before games such as Call of Duty and Gears Of War existed the first person shooter landscape was a very different place. Fast pace arena shooters on PC were all the rage and auto aim and aiming down scopes were nowhere to be found. There have been several attempts to bring this old school shooter gameplay to consoles but the controllers lack of precision and buttons always left these games feeling like weaker versions of their PC counterparts. Nexuiz is attempting to break this trend and is doing so with all guns blazing.

Check out our video preview bellow to see is Nexuiz can replicate classic arena shooter action on a console.

Publisher – THQ
Developer – Illfonic
Platforms – Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC (Via Steam)

    looks pretty good so far.
    this is the best part of having longer generations of consoles.
    early this gen developers were so busy learning new systems they did not have the time and resources to release unpopular oldschool games.
    but now that there getting fairly old, previous generations they would of been replaced by now, is giving developers the opportunity to do genres they would not of been able to do 3 or so years ago.
    look at all the 2D and side scrolling platformers starting to come back.
    look at all the survival games starting to come back.
    all the co-op games.
    and even a survival horror here and there, amnesia the dark decent was freaking unbelievable!
    this is exactly why i dont want new systems any time soon.
    were just starting to see some more rare genres and new ideas coming through, bring new systems in and we can kiss those goodbye for another 5 years!
