I played the demo last night. And I were disappointed - BECAUSE IT WAS TOO SHORT!!!!! I really like it.

But now I also first have too wait for the December holidays before I'll have the time to play the whole game.

Well I finished it and I must say. The gameplay is great, the story not so great. Once I finish Extraction Point I'll replay it guide in hand as a Swordsman.

Did anyone find a Stealth character a little to overpowered towards the end? I found it was extremely easy to sneak up on enemies and backstab, even when they saw me 2-3 slashes from the Temple Daggers would put any foe down...

Jesus, reviews sites just get more and more ludicrous every day. We have 2 ign reviews, one scores 7/10, the other 8.8/10. Then we have reviews like Gamespot (6.7/10), Gamespy(6/10), 1UP(4/10). On the opposite end we have game informer (9.25/10), Games Radar and Eurogamer (8/10), PC Zone UK (8.4/10) and PC Format - PC Gamer UK (8.8/10), and several more. Now which of these sites had drunk reviewers and which didn't? Cause it's quite possible these people wouldn't know if a brick hit them on the head!

How am I supposed to decide whether to buy the friggin' game?

did i mention that the lighting in the game is some of the best ive ever seen outside of offline renders??

some of the time i just was stuck gazing up one of the lift shafts drooling at the realism of it all.


its literally an understated milestone in graphics as far as im concerned.

like sillyeagle said, much better than oblivion - although a little flat and source-like (making for silky-smooth fps) the textures are fab.

did i mention the lighting was the best ive seen before?

the only thing bugging me was the hdr 'blending' or whatever it was, the blending between the exposure levels, wasnt smooth

who else thought the succubus was a sexy bitch?

Yeah, I definitely know what you mean. With 617 different caves on Oblivion you would've thought they could mix them up a little. But you're right.. every one of them look the same.

I'll definitely be buying this game soon. Loved the demo.

And, please. Gamespot can go to hell. Those guys are a bunch of crackheads. Always have been. I stopped reading their reviews when they gave "Jet Set Radio" a 10 in graphics and gave Enclave for the Xbox a 9.

For those uninformed, Jet Set Radio was a freaking cell-shaded cartoon game, and Enclave was breaking new ground with its incredibly detailed textures.

Absolutely ludicrous.

I don't trust anything that 1UP says. They're just a bunch of attention seeking douchebags that want to have a different opinion than everyone else.
