Gamescom Day 1 Round-up - what impressed us most?

The first day of Gamescom is over. Tomorrow, it opens to the public... only not all of it. While they're seeing all the demos we were playing at E3, we'll be playing exclusive behind-closed-doors demos of the very latest games, then telling you about them right here on GamesRadar.

We'll be posting previews throughout the week, but to get you in the mood, here are Owen Hill from PC Gamer, James Jarvis (formerly of GamesRadar) from CVG and myself, fresh out of our back-to-back appointments to tell you what impressed us most today. Take a look:

Keep an eye on our Gamescom page for more news and serviceable reportage from the show.
