I played it already and so know i will love it, but want to play it from the beginning now!

Thought this might get mixed reviews, it's defo gaming marmite..

If you buy it expecting your normal gaming experience you are gonna be dissapointed,
For me it's just a great interactive story i'm as much a fan of call of duty as there is but this is easily as enjoyable for me albeit in a compleatly different way:thumbsup:

To be honest, even pushing aside the reliability of a bloke from Teletext reviewing a game, this quote....
Teletext Review

Worse, despite the game pretending otherwise it's actually impossible to … Worse, despite the game pretending otherwise it's actually impossible to die in most of them.This makes your participation in proceedings seem even more pointless.

...... shows a staggering lack of understanding in terms of how the game works. You can 'fail' any and every quick time event, but the game doesn't end because the plot constantly evolves depending on the outcome. Whether this is a game that interests you or not (it actually doesn't really interest me to be honest), that is an extremely impressive feature and actually doesn't make the plot linear at all. The fact that he has failed to grasp this basic but essential feature makes his review all the less credible.

played the demo aqnd though some of it was really stupid especially the walking controls but ill probably buy it for the story when its cheap and cheerful

mixed reviewseh,isnt itlike 89 or 90 on metacrtitic, i thought the quick time event were intense

I haven't played the demo, but from what I've heard about it, it certainly doesn't look like my cup of tea and doubt I'll ever play it.

Sorry to contribute un-necessarily but if you enjoy it, good for you!

Fahrenheit failed, looks like this game is going down the same route.

Ahhh, the voice of idiocy has arrived

Im what way did Fahrenheit 'fail' ?

Will be buying it when its cheap.

It failed in that it didnt sell that many copies.

Commercially. This is set to do the same.

It is good but I suspect a 7-10 hour game with limited replay value is going to be flooding the trade-in market.

On my second play through...

I thought games like this have about 5-6 storylines?

Plenty of replay value there if you ask me.

Just played the demo and I have to say....not bad, but very slow gameplay, think I'd become very impatient with it.

Yeah know what you mean but you invest so much in the character's that you really care about how the story pan's out..

Plus once you have finished it once you start wondering how it would have turned out if you had made different decisions at key stages
