View Full Version : Snow Blind or Pariah?…which looks cooler?

Which upcoming FPS do you think looks more interesting Snow Blind or Pariah ?……I think they’re both very promising titles. but I have to say I think Pariah looks a little bit cooler and it seems brand new and fresh, Snow Blind is also very cool but it seems like it’s a rehashed Deus Ex IMO….

I dunno. My first impression from the Pariah website is its just another vanilla shooter.

I like Snowblind a lot better.

You asked 2 different questions. Cooler? as which looks better...I would have to say Pariah. Interesting? as gameplay and weapons and stuff...I would say Snowblind.

It seems to me that the graphics on Pariah look a whole lot cleaner and realistic but then as far as intense gameplay which to me in the long run turns out to be a better game...it seems like Snowblind is more intense. Looks like a military game set in the future (my favorite setting).

From what I've seen from tv previews I'd say Snowblind. It looks to me like a Splinter Cell like fps (and I mean that in a good way).

Pariah will probably have a more powerful engine seeing as they will probably be using the most up to date version of the Unreal Engine. Though seeing as they worked on different UT games I'd like to see a bit more to see or they are up to creating a totaly different game.

Pariah looks cooler, even better than Halo 2, but I have a PS2, and Project:Snowblind looks very promising with the addition of vehicles and what not

I was thinking about this too.. First I thought Pariah because the maker of Unreal was making the game.. But then I saw the previews for this game, and it looks unbeleivable, maybe not in terms of graphics, but the innovative ideas and how there are multiple ways to battle.

My vote is on Project: Snowblind, it looks like its going to be an awesome game!

For me it's not an engine that makes the game. DOOM3 has a great engine, as does Half Life 2, however the one FPS that I enjoyed the most this past 12 months was The Chronicles of Rid****: Escape from Butcher Bay. The game has a great story and the play mechanics were phenominal. In terms of multiplayer, the most fun with an FPS was back when Planetside was fresh and in it's prime.

At this point, I think it's a little too early to pick a favorite, especially judging by eye candy alone.

I almost bought that Rid**** game. It sure did look cool.

Ahh, the language filter is fun :). Ridd.ick was a great game, probably one of my top picks of last year for xbox. On the short side, but that's not a knock, the game was long enough to keep the gameplay interesting and fresh. And the graphics were top notch for an xbox game. Who knew a licensed title would surpass my expectations so much. The movie on the other hand...

As for other FPS picks, HL2 is my pick for PC hands down. Nothing comes close in terms of scope for the story. The gameplay is constantly changing, the pacing is well done, graphics amazing, and the best use of in game physics I've ever seen. Multiplayer is a mixed bag, Counterstrike is a good multiplayer component, but might turn off people not interested in a tactical FPS. The MP they patched in is fun for a bit, but with a small official maplist the traditional deathmatch setting can get sort of boring. Still, with the amount of upcoming mods, it's likely to have something for everyone.

As for Pariah, haven't really been watching the title much. I didn't know it was coming to PS2 as well. I'll have to keep an eye out for upcoming updates.

I looked at Pariah a bit more and I don't see anything out of the ordinary in the game.

Now, SB has several things that look new or at least have been tweaked enough to be considered new.

Great auto-censorship there :D

Snowblind does look good.

I have surfed/searched/scanned every review of the game....
drooled over all the screen shots....
and watched in awe all the trailers...

this game has the 'potential' to be a dominating 'best of all time'...
with legendary fame above and beyond 'Halo'...

only one tiny little 'detail' holds back this epic moment...

this 'detail' is the one falling mentioned in every review...

and this 'detail' will make the difference between being a forgettable piece
of eye candy (like Doom 3)...
or a Top Gun Hall of Fame player like Unreal, Max Payne, Halo, Far Cry, and Half Life....

it is with that thought I must pitch a tiny 'plea'...

If you are gamers yourselves...

If you carry any pride in workmanship....

if you do only one thing with this game prior to launch...

we ask only this:

~*~ P L E A S E beef up the A.I. !!! ~*~

thank you,
a concerned citizen of the gaming community.

the movie trailers are incriminating on this point...
every one depicting the 'gamer' running circles around the enemy A.I...
literally running into or passing the enemy without him seeming to notice...
for a game with sooo much potential...
sooo much blood and sweat poured into the outcome...
'no AI' is a deadly and sad final answer.

Definitly SNOWBLIND!

it looks SO awesome! :D

8th Feb 2005, 14:07
Well some of the running around the slow AI is due to the "Reflex Boost", and the "Cloak" augmentation allows them to pass guards and etc.

From all the trailers I have watched, I have not seen any real player vs AI action where augmentations were not used. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

re: The Dude 442 and "auto-censorship". Thats not all they censor. I had to change my name just to get on these forums.

Yup. Snowblind... Snowblind... Online... AWESOME!

Ive just read several previews for Snowblind on my IGNINSIDER account, and I have to say, It looks... Awesome.

Quote from IGN.COM --

"We're definitely looking forward to exacting some vengeance, but we're obviously going to need help. This is why we're going to use Snowblind's clans, clan rankings (officers and soldiers), clan notices, in-game stat tracking, and cross-game friends lists (across Eidos games, anyway). Those functions should help us find some hard-hitting mercenaries to aid in our vengeful quest to end the online lives of all Crystal D QA testers."


Ohhhhhh yeah!!

Pariah includes the Make & Play Map editor which is going to add so much life in the game on PC(modding community) and consoles(share & play your custom maps online). This makes Pariah stand out for me.

I have an interest in Project Snowblind's story.gameplay mechanics and the mp sounds awesome. Both have strengths. There are still some unknowns for me as to just what features P: S will support for the Xbox and Xbox Live, so I'm still a bit cautious untill I know more. At the very least I'll rent it.

Pariah also includes bots for mp which is another plus. Honestly my excitement for Pariah is even more than I had for Halo 2. It has a lot to offer.

Like I said regarding P: S, my interest is certainly peaked.

If you're going to buy without the benefit of having played demos or read a ton of reviews, then buy Pariah. Less risk of getting a dud. The print media has been gushing over it for a while, whereas Snowblind is slipping in under the radar. I don't put any faith in a game being released before a playable demo or plenty of print media attention.

That's piqued.

Nothing personal -- just a love for my language.
