They had the world exclusive first review and I just got my copy yesterday. I couldn't read the review until this morning, so I skipped class in order to do it (:)). I'm glad I waited...and I cannot WAIT to get this game! It sounds SO amazing, even if it did rip off The Ring quite a bit...but I don't care! The demo is so much fun, and so awesome.

Ugh! COME OUT NOW, DAMN IT!

I think he was talking about his issue of PC Gamer.

I screamed in that hallway. I only just barely completed Far Cry because of those monsters which i found quite scary. This game though takes the biscuit. :(

Superklye can you give us any details of the review? The goods, the bads.. you know :)

Sure, I'll do that when I get home. I'm at work now and don't have the review at hand. Basically, from what I remember, they said that the goods were the graphics, the environment interaction/physics, the AI, the incredibly creepy mood and the slow-mo.

The bads were that it was a rather contrived story and borrowed WAY too heavily from The Ring and had a somewhat "cliched" story ending. But those weren't enough to mar an otherwise amazing game.

I'll post more when I get home.

Is there a date on this?
Been half interested, tried the mP demo and got a bit turned off, tried the SP demo and now Im really looking forward to this game.

Looks like yet another game to add to my slowly growing must have list. I am glad that the game is enjoyable beyond the demo. I was afraid they might not be able to keep up, and that it would dissolve into HL2 tedium for me.

I loved the demo, once I had everything running as smoothly as possible on my rig. I let my friend have a go at it and the ladder scene scared him s**tless. I of course knew it was coming so I was dying of laughter when he jumped.

I almost forgot:

HIGHS: Kinetic destruction in combat; propulsive narrative; genuinely creepy; movie-quality audio

LOWS: A bit too derivative of some key influences; surprisingly conventional plot

BOTTOM LINE: A highly entertaining shooter that makes good on its high concept.

Does the review say there's only about 10-12hrs of gameplay ?
