Well I went to Big W (Walmart) to see if they had broken AU release date like they usually do. They did. But while I was there a salesperson walked up and asked which game I was after. I said Dark Messiah. He said "Nah we wont get that, we only get the big name games like Sims 2."...

Mainly due to how buggy it is and how thin the story is. Repetitive dialog and the combat system were said to be other issues.
Thats kinda disappointing, but Gamespot tends to always be the one site that craps all over a game that gets otherwise great scores everywhere else. Maybe they do it to stand out or something, I dont know.

right now i must agree with gamespot, this game is one major bugfest.

keeps crashing or freezing, demo was much better.

hell its a source game, so what should i expect.

I recorded about 20 mins of video with fraps last night by accident while playing and didn't even notice (the quickload key in the game is the same as fraps default record key). So I guess we are in fact playing different games, since mine is buttery smooth and I've still only had one ctd the entire time. I'm now on chapter 6.

I suppose that's par for the course though, since I read tons of feedback about bugs in games and beta video drivers and I can almost never reproduce them on any of the pc's I've had for the last 3 years. I'm either extremely lucky, or take better care of my systems than most people.

I'm not saying there aren't bugs, just that I've not really seen any.

I've had the stuttering bug occassionally but only when reloading a save a few times after getting wacked. Seems like it's a memory leak, or at least that's what might be causing my particular problem. Other than that it's been running smooth. Load times are 35 - 40 secs, not too bad.

I'm on the Epilogue level now moving in for the final battle (I guess it'll be the final one). Fun game. Kicking enemies over a ledge or into spikes, or taking body parts off with a power move, is a blast.

The reason I like Gamespot is because they ARE tough on games, especially PC games. They usually take the game as a whole instead of trying to divy it up into graphics/game play/etc. They just look at the whole package quality and subtract points for bad stuff. I haven't had a chance to play this game outside of the demo, but based on my impressions of that I think the score is about right. It's not really a fair assessment, but I am willing to give the game another chance.

reason to the low rating could be due to the fact that the game is very buggy..you cannot say the game is great or anything when it has alot of annoying bugs..i got the game myself but i decided not to install it till a patch is out, i dont want to ruin the fun of the game..i really enjoyed the demo and i think this game would have had a higher raiting if it wasen't..so dam buggy..
