GameSpy Review = GREAT! 4.5

Mods, can we have a sticky for reviews? This forum is getting a bit messy with all the traffic at the moment. I'm assuming that if Gamespy are reviewing it then we can look forward to plenty more. I hope Game Revolution review it. :cool:

Yep, sticky is a good idea.

Nice review.. although i find it odd that they claim the english is horrid, in my eyes it is far from it.. quite good in fact.. but i dunno, i suppose they had to make up something to fault it for to prevent a perfect score :P

Hi Imperial Dane - are you getting this soon or what? I kinda feel guilty that I'm about to start playing when I know you're a huge fan of the demo like me. :-P

I haven't noticed a real problem with the dialogue either, and I'm a high school English teacher. :) This is an excellent review. This game will do really well once people realise how much fun it is.

This is what I had feared. It's good that rest of the game gets the appreciation it deserves. Hopefully this latter trend continues.

@Zhuangzhi: Yeah i've gotten a digital copy for now, but when the boxed version comes.. i'm gonna get that as well :D

@Pkt-zero: I would say that comment from gamespy is rather erroneus as things are far from that bad, yeah they will be there, but not at that level and i suspect they are just exaggerating it to prevent the game from getting a perfect score ;)

For the first point, the demo suggests otherwise, so unless the text for the full game has been rewritten, it seems accurate. For the second point, I can see why they'd deliberately give the game a lower score than to huge, overhyped titles, but scores don't mean much, at least to me.

I do find some of the dialogue sounds a little awkward at times, but far from horrid.
