Gamespy has a review about it and and score it with FAIR (3 out of 5 stars)

It says it's just a a Unreal-Fps clone game with just interesting graphics and nothing else...it says something about not having a balanced fighting system

but for KOTOR it gave 5 out of 5 stars
and
for Deus ex IW 4 out of 5 stars

They would have been more correct in saying "It's an Unreal-FPS but with interesting graphics and an actual storyline, compared to Unreal not having any story at all. It was quite disappointing in that regards. Unreal reminded me much of Doom. Just kill stuff. That's the story. I remember becoming so bored with Unreal that I murdered a dozen or so tweakers who were in a crack-house down the street. But, I digress."

I hate Tea Leoni for her stupid face, her lame voice, her pathetic personality, her nenenenenenene. Grrrrrrrr. She's lame.
So I guess it's correct to say you hate Tea?

I bet if we crack your computer, we will find naked pictures of some lady with Tea Leoni's face photoshopped onto them with little message bubbles saying "Screw me, PenguinJim, screw me like I was your sister"

Right now XIII is running a 9/10 score for me, I can't say for sure 'til I finish it though. (I HATE it when they ruin a good game with a lousy ending, I hope this has a good ending!)

I'm pretty sure I'm near the end and I gotta say this game has really got something going for it...I played it for about 14 hours solid yesterday (well, on and off as I kept taking breaks to do family stuff...but I got 14 hours in on it) and I just can't recall the last time I put that much time in on a game in one day. (I think it was Unreal2, but I didn't enjoy the time nearly as much...it was more of a "have to get thru it, it MUST get better" ordeal there.)

I'm really digging this game. The plot is intriguing me and it's paced so that I haven't gotten bored yet, and the cel-shading is still working for me in a big way with the story-telling.

The only voice that is bugging me is Adam West as he's over doing it big-time and hamming it up a bit, but it IS Adam West and he's a bit like Shatner in that regards.

My only biatch is that I haven't figured out how to add my bullet-time binds yet, but it's really a minor quibble in the great scheme of things.
