If I told you that a handful of Canadian university students were attempting to rebuild the ancient city of Troy in all it’s legendary glory, you’d probably look at me as if I had a small mythical creature on my nose and back away slowly. However, the guys and gals at Sherbrooke Uni have finally reached the end of their semester- and in these winter months they’ll be releasing Troy: Divine Playground to the masses. [br] [br] The Troy team aren’t finished just yet though, and to whet our appetite for the coming spectacle they’ve developed an in-game movie showcasing many of Troy’s features. They haven’t *ahem* officially released this yet, but a quick look in their media section will reveal it’s ready for download. [br] [br] Just click here, in fact. [br]
[br]Having watched the video, I must admit mixed feelings for Troy: Divine Playground. Positively, the character models and weapons look amazing, the combat is frantic and there are a load of inventive ideas such as ladders, spirits and divine powers. However, there also seem to be a lot of animation bugs that occur when attacking with both ranged and melee weapons; and the environment itself doesn’t look very impressive. Hopefully the team will manage to iron out any discrepancies before the final release. [br] [br] To view the Divine Playground website, click here.
