    Cool, I'd have expected Airborn to make it this far. I have to say, there are maybe 1 or 2 others in the Phase 4 finalists that can match the level of graphical polish of Airborn. Can't really judge gameplay however, but I really want to try Airborn sometime soon!

    impressive work, airborn goes without saying but I also like the look of some of the others planetstorm and warm gun look fun, some others also look like they have some inventive gameplay like that hazard game

    Renegade X was allowed to enter? That seems weird since their entire mission is to recreate an already made game.

    And yeah Airborn automaticall wins for good art with me, hehe.

    well they have the permission and support of ea to do it and enter the contest, a loing while it was not sure if they could enter because of the copyrights rules for the contest, but ea talked to epic and they are now allowed as they don't break any copyright laws. I think they could do better with less copyxing of the original game, but when their game is set, plugging better and more modern art above it isn't that hard.
    I played prometeus which looked so far like the most promising to me, i played alone and it was a bit confusing but looked like it has a lot of potential.
    it felt pretty huge, at least the space level, i'd personally drop the battlefield planetary level, and focus more on the space mission which was really cool so far :D
    Warm Gun dunno, not really my thing but will test it soon, i kinda like the gasmask indian but the rest is just not my style.
    The Haunted was very boring for me (it has more gameplay as airborn, no questions about that).
    The Ball also looked quite promising, i dunno if its a game a lot of people would play but from what i saw it looks the most like a finishable game.
    On Steamracers i couldn't leave the first room to get to the cars, haha :D it was the phase 3 version and i didn't test the phase 4 but that was a really bad thing for me
    i will definitely test hazard and archasis h and sanctum love the colourchoices they made

    Airborn is, no doubt pretty much art focussed so far, this is basicly because we started as a bunch of artist and our main coder flavius joined way later, i hope we can do a bit more for the finals, but i wouldn't count on that, as everyone whos helping is working in the biz, we are all very busy, so i definitely don't see us winning the finals. But who knows maybe crytek and splashdamage stop their crunchtimes and our members have some more time to spend on the game :D

    Congrats to everyone on the Airborn team, as well as the Toltec guys since I know they hang around here as well. Aside from The Ball and Airborn I am really happy to see that Sanctum made it.
