    Hey guys some of you may know that I got to play a Xbox One last night others may not.

    Well this is my review after going hands on with Microsoft's new console.

    Well it didn't start off good typical Microsoft got lost when delivering the consoles to Game, which delayed us by a hour till 9PM.

    This wasn't good for me as I had to get the train back at 10PM....

    Anyways lets get to it.

    When we finally got inside we was greeted by Games staff and Microsoft who provided us with some refreshments and pizza as a gesture for setting up late.

    Microsoft then got down to the finer details such as no photos or videos where allowed, Whoopsy I had already ninjaed one before they said that :LOL:

    There was six Xbox Ones lined up to play on each with games on.

    We had Forza Five, Killer Instinct, Ryse, and Dead Rising 3.

    First off I had a go on Forza Five.

    On the game we had we got to take a lap around the famous track Laguna Seca.

    The graphics are amazing so much better then a 360.

    The sounds from the car such as engine noise and gear shifts are spot on.

    This is reflected also in the new pad with the force feedback vibration triggers which I will get to in a minute.

    Now for the controller.

    The controller has a nice smooth felling to it when your holding it and it's a lot lighter then the current 360 pad.

    This is probably because there is no big battery pack sticking out of the back as they have removed this so the batteries go inside the back of the pad itself so it completely flat on the back.

    Now to some gamers this may feel wired but to me it feels a lot better and it would be easy to simply pick it up and get on with some gaming.

    The force feedback is sweet for example when you change gears on Forza the triggers will vibrate as your shifting up and down.

    The triggers are a lot lighter then the current pad also so no heavy pressing to aim down your sights it's nice and smooth feeling which in my eyes is a lot better.

    Now onto the next game ;)

    Next up I had a go on Dead Rising 3.

    [​IMG]

    Talk about zombie games god damn this is absolutely amazing it's outstanding.

    The graphics are epic it feels so smooth and it's easy to jump right into which is what we had to do thanks MS !

    There must of been at least 1000+ zombies on screen at once to take out with your flamethrower, chainsaw and petrol bombs.

    Now you think it would lag out or push the console to it's limits with that amount of zombies going on but it doesn't and the gameplay is fantastic.

    I spent around five minutes playing it and I didn't relay like the old dead risings to be honest but this is a must buy if you love zombie smashing.

    Next up I had a quick play on Ryse Son Of Rome.

    [​IMG]

    To be honest I wasn't that keen on this the controls need sorting out before they release it as there far to fiddly just to pick up your pad and jump into it which is how Microsoft set it up for us.

    The combos are outrageously stupid you need to press about five buttons to just do a simple jump and slash your enemy's head off.

    Beneath the undeniably stunning graphics, some of the game is still slow through.

    This is a big, combat-driven hack-and-slash action epic, but one that seems dependent on carefully timed responses to what your doing in the game.

    Finlay I had a quick go on Killer Instinct.

    [​IMG]

    It's like Tekken mixed with some mad werewolf's to take down.

    Definitely a button basher as I got my ass kicked on it :LOL:

    Overall it's very good gameplay is nice and smooth and the combos are easy to pick up.

    The game is based heavily around these combos as you have three different ones.

    "Auto-Double" and the Ultra Combo, which is an an automatic combo that can only be done to end a match and you go all out on your opponent racking up a massive combo to whoop some ass.

    And that's it guys overall I can't wait to get my hands on the console again on launch day.

    Yeah some games need a few tweeks here and there but most of them are still being devolved and finer issues could be sorted with a title update.

    Anyways check out some pics I managed to :ninja:

    Sorry if there not that good as we was warned if we got caught taking any we would be thrown out.
