i wanted to like this game,i listened to all the rave reviews,and i was very excited when it finally got ported to ps3,i put the game in and i was amazed,i loved it,two hours later though i realized just how repetitive it was kill the same looking enemies over and over,go find something for someone,get the door open repeat cycle,and i had high hopes for the big daddy fights,everyone was saying how hardcore they were,they are simple to beat,and they do the same stuff over and over,the bosses on contra for the nes were better,i was let down,i sent it back the next day

Not knocking the mechanics, but...

I could never get over the settings. The arrogance of the writers to corrupt Any Rand's ideas by inserting some fictional goo that has instantly reduce such a place into a madmens' asylum. It's a bitter taste that has prevented me from plunging far into this game.

Just a side note on the two characters you've seen on the cover, where the mechanize creature is there to protect the child. Why does the writer demand you to destroy it in the first place? Is that child a slave to the whims of the monster? Are you there to 'free' her from it? System Shock was by far the better work by this group.

What's all the hype about?

I wanted to like this game, it was visually stunning, after the longest download time in history!

The environment was hugely creepy which is what I was looking forward to... but that's the only good thing I could see with the game... the controls were clunky, I felt like I was walking in circles. Sadly, I lasted 30 minues for download time and 1 hour of actual game time before I became bored and put it back in it's envelope

Darn it and I really wanted to like it... rated a 3 because of environment.

Maybe I am too generous?
