uh oh. seems like developers are so desperate to get the game into your hands they’ve dropped the price by $5. not a crazy price drop, like we saw with bioshock 2, but still!
i’m not as crazed about this game anymore, i have to say. i don’t think it’s worth $50 – more of a bargain basement price of $25 or something. reviews, something i have never put much stock into, are rating the game between a 5 and 6. some are being less charitable, giving it a blistering 3 or 4.
however, the reviews are worth paying attention to for this: they are almost uninanimous in saying that the controls are awful. they’re also saying the gameplay is repetitive. those are kind of elements that ruin it for any gamer, but for me it means bitching ad naseum on this blog you’re all so fond of.
guess we can only wait and see. as always, you are welcome to leave your two cents of worth.
