Say's it's a "high concept idea" and isn't targeted at the "core gamer".

Yeah. High concept. Never been done before and something profound.
Please. How arrogant can you get? Freedom Fighters was brilliant and equally "high" concept. Either way, a poor game is a poor game at the end of the day. Shadow of the Colossus was pretty damn "high" concept and it performed rather magnificently.

There is a difference between not being revolutionary in gameplay - (what he stated) and having bad gameplay (what's in the game) - that he can't tell the difference makes me far less likely to ever look at their games again - Devs just need to take their lumps and learn from their mistakes when they put out junk - not try to spin it so as its the customers that are wrong.

Yeah, I bought the game based on the "high concept", but returned it the next day because of the "crap game" - Note to Spark: Explaining to customers and critics why they "don't get it" is a bad idea for future crap releases.

I don't care how "high" concept he thinks his game is or who he claims his market audience to be if the game controls like crap, looks like crap and plays like a 8 year old share ware game it's going to get low reviews. I am also pretty sure any gamer with an IQ above 45 "gets it" just fine.
I didn't realize this used the UE3...how can such a good looking engine look like such trash? Seems to me Spark Unlimited needs some new texture artists and modelers and...

He's just basically saying if your expecting a game like a Halo beater or Killzone beater this wont be it. Its just a game they made from ideas, its made to play not to just break records and sell millions. Geeese........

This is totally absurd. Nobody expected this game to be a Halo 3 or COD4 beater, but there are certain minimum standards that any shooter on the Xbox360 needs to meet. When you release a demo on Xbox Live less than a month before the game comes out that has major problems and then claim you are going to fix those problems in a couple of weeks, and then don't fix them, you are going to get slapped by gamers. This game is a $60 MSRP game, you don't get to claim that you are new to the platform or didn't have many resources if you insist on that price point in this era. How arrogant was it for them to release a "collector's edition" if they really believed this was not a title intended to be for the masses?

This game is horrible in every way and this guy is just trying to deflect those facts by saying that most people wont understand his game. Calling most of us dumb by saying the game is a High Concept game. Wrong, Bioshock was a high concept. TP is just turning the tables in a What if scenario. Which really couldve been a great game, i was sold on it i bought it the day it came out. And from the beginning it was clear this game was horrible. The enviroment is very fake from the moment the game starts, it doesnt feel like youre moving about the world or in this case on top of a high rise building. The enemy AI is extremely stupid the enemy just comes at you in waves, nothing about this game is fun it feels like the first generation of FPS games on an PS2 all the lessons that were learned and advancements in the FPS were just completely ignored in this game. Their are no physics to speak of.
Just read the reviews on this game. And do yourself a favor and dont buy it. Let these guys know if theyre going to make a bad game no ones going to buy it and dont let them cop out by saying "we did what we could with the time and money" they spent so much time and money going to the white house to make every room the same in the game, and buying WW1 & 2 weapons to keep at the offices cost a good deal of time and money the worst part is the level of detail in the guns couldve been attained by Googling them! Same with the Whitehouse layout being the same in the game it doesnt mean much if the graphics showing each room horrible!
Stay away from this stinker!
