Deserves a second chance (New Trailer) Back Online!

I hadn't actually played this game since it was released and recently I started work on a series of articles that review older games that deserve a second chance and Oni was one of the first games that came to mind. After buying it and installing last week, I'm really suprised by how well this game holds up. Not so much visually but from a gameplay standpoint, the game makes modern combat games feel like Lego Start Wars in regards to their complexity and depth.

I made a new trailer to try and generate some interest in the game.

What do you think?

Love.  It.  Makes me want to play through again!

The only thing I might suggest, is showing some more combat, but that's just a minor thing when held up against how well this trailer works.

Holy H mushroom cloud! That's so bleeding epic I dont know where to start...........It's a great trailer and the way you started and ended those fragments aswell as the input of those lines were just perfect!

I was expecting some Griffin, Mukade and Muro lines but that was still one hell of a trailer!


-I noticed that the hackers of oni community made a lot of modifications before they locked me up, do you have any idea what they want with an old game? -Modifications? What kind of modifications?
-Hard to tell, without getting a look at things but it looks like they're repurposing it. -Why?
-Beats me, all the game has is brutal melee combat and furious gunplay. -I dont like the sound of that.....

Whoah, that's what I call a bloody good trailer.
Oni undoubtely deserves more than a simple second chance, because, when was the last time you saw a TPP beat 'em up? The graphics do suck, but the game catches that up with animations and level design. So big thanks for the effort.

Re: Deserves a second chance (New Trailer) Back Online!

the only problem i had with the video is that it gives the impression that vehicles play a bigger part in the game then they actually do...
but its an awesome video, nonetheless.
speaking of which, i wonder if it would be possible to make a level/mod where you glide with the glider, or race the motorcycle...? well, thats a topic for another thread...

looking at the last two posts. is it down now?

Phydur@ on the topic Muro's lair there's talk about getting vehicles to work in the city outside the lair.

Can you access the video? If not then it's down tongue

Epic epic EPIC! If the AE were to be released as it's own game with this trailer, only with updated graphics and maybe some updated gameplay, people would eat it up without chewing and leave no leftovers.

I don't know how i missed this the first time around. This was a really cool video, after seeing the comments I feel bad asking if you could redo it using some of the newer HD mods?
