That is one of the best, if not the best looking game that I have ever seen. It seems to have completely captured that original 'Panzer Dragoon' feel too. OMFG!!!

Looking Far Better than I expected it to.

Every gamer should download and watch this trailer.

This is totally unrelated to PDO, but I just downloaded the Crimson Sea trailer & that one's another beauty. Do check it out, it's from Koei. The trailer was at Team Xbox.com although there might be another link in the Official E3 announcements thread. back to PDO...

Romier - I have to admit that I don't know -jack- about the Panzer Dragoon series, other than the fact that there's dragons in there somewhere.
The trailer looks pretty amazing! Is there more to it than a "aerial dragon shooter"? Meaning, is there a story or some sort of adventure in there as well?
I might pick this one up as long as it's not flying and shooting only.
Sweet ass graphics though. :eek:

You guys want to here something crazy? I have deprived myself of all Panzer Dragoon videos. I've not seen the game in motiona at all, and do not wish to until I first play the game... Same for Metroid, Zelda, Mario...etc. Not seen them in motion. Hearing everyone go nuts over these videos is making me so happy. I know that I will be in heaven upon first spin of these games.

Being on 56k helps my restraint in video downloads I must admit.

That is the brunt of the gameplay. If you want some idea what the game plays like give REZ a try on the PS2. REZ plays very similiar to the PD series. (minus the emphasis on music:))
The additions to the gamplay that do make it a bit more than just flying and shooting is the morphing abilities of the dragon (also was present in Panzer Saga). Its adds a bit of strategy to the gameplay as you need to figure out which dragon to morph into for a given situation.(Power=more damage Stamina=more speed so forth and so on).
Also they added a speed button now to slow the dragon or make it move faster. The ability to rotate the camera around the dragon and fire behind and to the sides has been a staple of the series but god does it add allot to the gameplay.
One final note is that the there is a long running storyline through all of the Panzer Dragoon games. The story was light in the first game and served the gamplay well. They ramped things up in Zwei (which had an interesting and involved story for a "rail" shooter). Finally you have Panzer Dragoon Saga which has one of the best stories (albiet a tad short)out there, second only to Xenogears IMO. (Which is also why I almost fell out of my chair when I saw Azel in the Orta trailer!)
If you don't like shooters Derrick I don't know if this is your cup of tea. You can always give it a rent when it is released.

Thanks for the info Romier. I'll give it a rent when it comes out and see whether it grabs hold of me or not.
