3DNews.net heeft een column gepost over innovatie in het FPS genre, of beter gezegd: het totale gebrek aan innovatie:
Innovation in first person shooters is at a standstill. Everybody is concentrating on graphics and visceral gameplay over truly changing the way the games are actually played. Take Wheel of Time as an example. (screenshot) It's a gorgeous game! It looks even better in person than that screenshot. Unbelievably nice graphics. But the gameplay?
Can you say "Doom"? Instead of a rocket launcher, you have a fireballl ter'angreal. Instead of a machinegun, a flamedart ter'agreal. Et cetera. It's the same damn game!
