I found it a little too slow and very much the same all the way through, definitely wasn't my type of game but a good game to play on a rainy day at this price.

Plus you can get the Download content which I didnt play so don't know if that was any good or not??

The downloadable content has recieved better reviews than the game itself!

I think this is an ok price considering other games like the dreadful kane and lynch which was released later is now 12 odd quid in some places and PES 2011 released a matter of weeks ago is 17.99.

Been this price for ages!

All that hype, all those years of waiting and to be honest I totally forgot about this when it finally came out

Loving your pic

No it's not a good game, it's a terrible game and not worth a fraction of this price.

The game is totally linear, you are never allowed to stray from any specific path and everything you have to do is spelled out for you all the way. It's a going-through-the-motions game, gaming-by numbers-game. No skill required, no thought required, no sense of achievement. Awful, just awful.

Great spot, have some heat

i quite liked the game plus you get the first bit of downloadable content free

That's a very harsh comment I think.

It seems people are expecting more sandbox games now with larger amounts of freedom to roam about and do nothing really. This is a very story driven game, and a creative one at that. You can actually stray from the narrow paths, but it's simply more dangerous as it's likely to lead into the dark wilderness. With a game as centred around the story as it is, it's important for it to be quite structured, and it does that well. I'm obviously not going to change your mind, in fact, I'm not even trying to, I'm just simply offering a more calm and logical response to the harsh criticism you unjustly gave the game in my view.

I will agree with you on the front that the "combat" can get slightly repetitive but it's not a bad system so it isn't painful thankfully.

I loved this game, not too sure why everyone hates linear games now.
