Section 8 – New FPS looking to Fail or Fly?

Although our focus has been on Killzone 2 recently, I have been hearing the name “Section 8” quite a lot lately, so I decided to go and see what all the fuss was about.

Turns out that it is a new first person shooter that will be releasing on the PC and Xbox 360. I t seems that some dung hit the air-conditioner a little while back though as it was thought that it would release on both Xbox 360 and PS3 but later confirmed to only be releasing on the Xbox 360 console.

Some are calling it a mix between Halo and Crysis, which does sound at least a little bit interesting and from the video above, it is clear that there is some potential there, however I cannot help but feel that this game may become another Haze, quickly forgotten and for good reason.

I have put up some early screenshots, after the jump.

I really haven’t seen enough of this game to really say how I feel about it, but I honestly can’t help but feel like it just doesn’t have anywhere near the required amount of polish to take on big boys out there like COD, Crysis, Killzone 2, Halo and all the others.

Anyone else notice that the beginning of the video felt a bit similar to the introduction to Quake 2?

Section 8 is set for a 2009 release.
