It is a funny review but not a joke review. Regardless, everything he says is spot on. Again, if you played System Shock 2 you'd agree too.

Just got done with a runthrough of the demo... it's very kickass. Controls for each character took a little getting used to. Slight motion sickness but it's worth it.

The game even auto detected my monitors native res.Framerate stays at 30. I"m at 1920x1080 btw.. Overclocking didn't help FPS, so I'm guessing it's set at 30. Textures and animations are very kick ass.

Literature, movies, music and yes even games fall into the province of art. As such they are subject to personal preference.

Arguing that an opinion born out of personal taste is somehow objectively true is more flawed than any PC or console game in question.

For folks that can't grasp this simple concept you may want to hold off on pointing fingers at "unsophisticated console kids." You're getting ahead of yourself.

Good post I agree.

Well, I have no problem with people saying that they like on game better than the other, but saying stuff like "pc gamers are more mature than console gamers", well... Comments like this are true backwards...

One would imagine that more interactivity is better, but "WTH, its too interactive! This games sucks!!!".... is not an opinion... Its called "dont like challenges"...

I enjoyed the demo quite a bit. No it didn't even begin to suck me into the game the way undying did. It wasn't remotely scary either. It looked phenomenal though and ran smooth as glass at max settings.

I like the ability to change characters as it gives you a different approach to dealing with enemies. The interactive cut scene was pretty cool also. I liked it and took about 5 or 6 tries to get it.

Consolized or not, I liked it and am looking forward to the full version. I do hope the full version becomes more immersive though. I don't know if it was just the team atmosphere or not long enough of a demo to really suck me in or what but when you had to go at it alone with the ninja chick, It IMMEDIATELY became more immersive as subconsiously, I knew I couldnt rely on teammates to bail me out if I was attacked.

Unfortunately, I can see it being this way the whole game so I really do hope that there are plenty of those break away from the squad moments.


As far as bioshock vs systemshock 2, that's another apples to oranges comparison. No bioshock isn't nearly as atmospheric and immersive or creepy as SS2 but I think bioshock has a better game play style.

Isn't just generally true? I mean on PC's you get ping. On a console you get red/yellow/green? Why is that?

Obviously because the software developers did some research that showed that the average console gamer doesn't know what ping means.
