    I liked the DEMO. The only bad thing is that I was reminded is that I run a PS4 vanilla and not PRO. 60 fps with 720p is better than 30 fps and 1080p, but it ain’t pretty

    Then just play in 1080p 30fps mode then if it bother you that much they gave you a choice.

    True. But I am a bit spoiled at this point. Main is PC and PS4 my second platform. I am used to 1080-1440p and 60 fps :P

    For this 2013 prebuilt small console hardware think asking for too much to get 1080p 60fps in this game for standard PS4 but I get what your saying

    Didn’t think much about this game until i heard it was made by Team Ninja, and that Polygon can’t even play it for a review because it’s too hard. Makes me wish Itagaki was still part of TN so he could take the piss.

    True once again. I guess should remember that games are more than pretty looks and more about the enjoyment of fun gameplay :)

    Really? Polygon isn’t reviewing it because they say it’s too hard? That goes to show how much of a fucking joke they are.

    I would love to see Polygon play God Hand though, i doubt they will get past the tutorial level.

    They’re still reviewing it but need more time to complete it because ‘it’s too hard’
