Yeah, i know and agree

I was just wondering if Blacksite could be worth ordering together with it since itīs very cheap on the same store.

I bought this game alongside with Lost Planet and i just finished it. I have to say it was better then i expected. Yes, the game is buggy and stutters during the levels when loading. There are also some irritating things like motion blur that cannot be turned off, not possible to map side buttons for the mouse etc.

It looks good to me but the vegetation needed some work. Also, i really like the locations the game take place in. I wonder how this game would have been received if the developers been given 6 more months. But the game is actually fun! I found the firefights to be fun and the checkpoint system worked well.

All in all, i would rate it 7/10 but if it had been more polished i would have given it 8.5.

If you got nothing to play i would recommend it since it can be had really cheap, but donīt get pissed if you donīt like it at first because the opening Iraq level is really boring!

Well, well, off to the Lost planet

Blame Midway for this buggy game, they basically sold everyone an unfinished game.

Gametrailers says the same thing, their review is quite funny.

I enjoyed it for what it was, but I like almost every FPS (except Alpha Prime... screw that game).

It would have been a lot better with a long delay, and probably would have sold better outside the holiday season next to CoD4 and the rest.

I bought Alpha Prime too, but i donīt think it was that bad.... Pretty solid low budget title if you ask me, a 6/10 perhaps?

I had the same issue when I had my GX2. Sent it back and switched to an OC'd 8800GTX, much smoother. I noticed alot of stutter with the GX2, Assassin's Creed, this one, GOW - its the limited memory and bus speed of the GX2 that hurts it.

I could deal with the small amount of stuttering the game gave me, what pissed me off was no matter what patch I used, my game saves would delete every time I exited a game. Every.frickin.time.
