A Vectorman game for the Sony PlayStation 2 was announced, but was soon cancelled, perhaps because the redesigned Vectorman looked too much like Halo’s Master Chief. According to initial reports, it was to have been vastly dissimilar to the 16-bit games. [info from Wikipedia]

    And I thought Bomberman Act Zero was shameful. Even a person who hasn’t played the original Vectorman (but have seen at least one-two gameplay videos) can understand the difference with this abomination.

    I play-tested this game for Pseudo Interactive before it got cancelled. I had never heard of Vectorman at the time, so I wasn’t comparing it to a game that already existed. But what I found was: the physics engine was awesome, and the AI was incredible. At the time, I had never seen a game where some AI will hide behind walls, others will run and gun you, a couple will try to sneak around to flank you… the AI programming was simply amazing, and it was all done by one guy.

    What I did NOT like about the game was how confusing I found it to figure out where I was supposed to go next. But this was probably because it was in the alpha stage and the texturing wasn’t done yet.
