I've been playing the Overrun demo for the past hour and... it's okay. It feels like an enhanced Beast (which it obviously is), but for me, Beast was never really a time sink, and from the demo, I cannot see me pouring the same number of hours into Overrun as I have Horde in either 2 or 3. Admittedly there is only one map in the demo, and only 8 Locust to choose from and thus there will/maybe more to come from the game proper, but I’m not yet sold on what is probably the game mode that has received the most hype from JudgEment. The characters feel a little twitchy, and it is pretty amusing to watch those controlling Cole attempting to throw grenades at the enemy, only to have an ammo box fall at the feet of an approaching Locust!
I’ll give it time, but I’m yet to be convinced that this ‘evolution’ Beast and Horde is a worthy replacement for Horde proper..
