i tried it and must say :it is funny as hell...it is violent and basically an adult only game, dont let your kids play this one. after playing it and getting use to the controls it is really fun. after you initially find the milk game will end,but go through again and within the 7 minute time limit try as many things as you can. find as many weapons and stuff. sorta like gta and vice city style of a game.

Cool I dunno.

The game is fun for it's initial over-the-top shock value, there's gotta be something said about a game where you can hit a lady with a shovel and then chase her around pissing on her to make her puke before dousing her with gasoline and setting her ablaze.

I'm not exactly sure WHAT to say about it, but I'm sure there is something to be said.

It was a giggle, but I wouldn't buy it. The load levels are a bit between extreme and ridiculous and there's and awful lot of load points on the map!

But it does have a quirky/sick/gross/kewlness factor that is undeniable, I agree with the publishers opening statement about believing that disgusting and violent acts should be committed in video games rather than real life but still ain't sure the game is my cup of tea.

I was playing the full version for a while, but it does get awful repetative awful fast. There's just so many ways to piss on guys and light 'em on fire and such. (BTW-I LOVE the dead cat silencers for the weapons...I couldn't figure out why I kept finding catnip. )

LOL! I thought the game loaded insanely fast. Then again I have 768MB of ram.
Loading time was only a few seconds after selecting new game.

This game has some neat/disturbing ideas in it. and it's all goo and fun but i don't see myself playing it more then a an hour if i bought the game.

I think thats why they limited the demo to 7 min, if you could play as long as you wanted people would lose interest and not actually buy the game. I might pick it up someday in the bargin bin for some cheap brainless fun.

That's exactly what I thought about the time limit.

I didn't know about the time limit on the demo, but I have to agree with you. After only about 10 minutes the game really does get old, and the more advanced levels are just a whole lot more of the same.

BTW-I do however LOVE the way you can blow up vehicles by shooting the gas tanks...

A multiplayer version of it would rule and may even make the game worth buying.

Yep, sick twisted fun for about ten minutes. Then you stop and realize all you've been doing is hitting a dead body with a shovel for the last 3 minutes and there's not much else to do... I wasn't expecting anything more though.
