Joe, one of these days I'm going to start a scrap book of all such unique phrases of yours.
Looking forward to your next article.

I am kind of disappointed by the review. I think this game is fantastic. I have been playing it for the last few days constantly. The graphics are great, the guns are cool and the vehicles are fun.
I like the story, sure its not the most complicated thing in the world but it ties in the sections of the game nicely.
I have no idea how long is left in the game, I killed green eye a few missions ago. I really enjoy fitting out my VS with 2 laser guns too :D. The bosses are cool to fight with also.

This game deserves more than a 6.

I guess you're too young to know what that is.

I hate to nitpick, but…

Vehicles play a large part in the game too and Wayne remarkably retains his ability to pilot a range of different VS robots – which made us question whether he even had amnesia at all.
Procedural memory (which involves knowing how to do things such as ride a bike or, in this case, pilot a VS :)) is separate from declarative memory (which involves facts and memories), and there are plenty of documented cases where an individual suffered from damage to one section but not the other.

Yes, I did just complete an introductory Psychology course. How did you know?

tbh I picked this up at Tesco for a mere 15 quid and I must say that for a mindless shooting game its a lot of fun. i'll agree that paying the full 30-35 for it would be a bit harsh but id give it a 7/10 myself.

I played it on the 360. Didn't care for it.

"nesercarily"

I can never ever spell that word. Not ever. I'd normally try to get as close as I can and then let word auto-correct, but that one I can't even ever get close enough for word to guess. It was very embarassing when I got a handwritten essay handed pack with it circled five or so times in my first year of uni, especially because I was studying English.

Did you mean vista ? or are you suggesting that most discerning gamers are still on win98 ? ;p

Fair review.

I'm not buying it on principle. Its not finished.

I'll pick it up in some distant play.com sale, but not before.

Played it, didn't like it, left it on the shelf to rot.

Good review, well said and accurate

You NEED a 360 controller not to feel like your struggling to even play the damn game. Luckily I have one, unluckily it doesn't improve the game much

My 'lost' experience was exactly 13 seconds. then i ditched the demo. Because i absolutly hate 3th person gameplay. And i also believe any 3th person game is a console ripoff.

He's not missing out on much, but with such a tunnel vision approach to what a good PC game consists of he's missing out on some other amazing games in 3rd person perspectives. Mafia was brilliant. Splinter Cell's 1 2 and 3 were awesome. (those are the two that spring to mind as they are on my desk in front of me)

Not forgetting games like world of warcraft...

Basically, not all 3rd person games are console rip-offs.

Sorry for being unclear; that's what I meant: games played from a 3rd person perspective. Not Lost Planet in particular, which I've only played a bit at the EBGames X-Box 360 kiosks and so can't really comment on.

Don't forget Resident Evil 4!!

Or any of the Tomb Raider games. Legend and Anniversary were very, very good.

If "3rd" is pronounced "third", that makes "3th" "thuth"
Thuth person perspective is sounds rather like 4th person perspective...so how would the 4th person view the events of a game?
I'm not having a joke, I'm just thinking whether it's even possible.

4th person is the guy watching you play in 3rd person mode over your shoulder :p

There was a game, seven I think it was called where you played in 2nd person perspective.. ie, the guy your shooting at. Like when you played goldeneye and used to watch the other persons quarter of the screen to know when to blow those remote mines. I always planned on getting it for the GC but I completely forgot about it... I don't think it went down too well in the end.
CardJoe 10th July 2007, 21:10 Quote
I remember trying an experimental PC deathmatch game which was played in the 2nd person. It was weird. You looked through the eyes of somebody you couldn't control who was trying to kill you and you knew that your controls were moving your own character around, but you just couldn't see it. It was great for ten minutes - it'd be 9 minutes of suspense and boredom, then 60 seconds of panic and confusion when the two characters happened to catch each other.

More on topic, this is how game viewpoints break down:

0st Person: No character controlled or viewed. You play no games and have no friends.
1st Person: you look through the eyes of one person and control that person. (I.e. Doom, Haze)
2nd Person: you look through the eyes of another person, but still control the original character (I.e. weird experimental game)
3rd person: you don't look through the eyes of anyone, are a disembodied entity who observes the character who is controlled. (i.e Tomb Raider, Lost Planet)

Thats all that is possible in the English language, though when I studied Stylistics at University we did touch upon other possibilities. There are clever ways of tricking into fourth or fifth person in certain poems etc through the use of subtext, but it's generally accepted that it's only possible in other languages and only then in the cases of specific phenomena, based on context.

Though, I suppose in game terms you could make that a fourth person game is a simulation or RTS game where you view through as a disembodied entity and control many people.

people r so harsh lol

just wanna throw it in there... graphic is gorgeous...

i got this game free when i bought Q6600 recently, and it was BEAUTIFUL!!

the cutscene, the action, the ... stuff!!!

that being said, i agree, gameplay is somewhat lacking... (found myself swearing coz the guy doesn do/go where i want him to)
story is somewhat lame...wait.. make that... it IS lame... lol but i still watched all the cutscene anyway.... did i say its beautiful?

but its fun. shoot, explodes, burst, and more shoot... and more explodes... its fun. really.

and the graphic... luv watchign how my guy stumble when he jumps over, fall over, got knocked down... extremely fluid animation and realistic actions... well, not REAL real, but yknow what i mean... physics is great.


overall, my point is, its a great run-n-gun action game thats definitely fun to play. in other word.s.. run-n-gun-fun. :D

would i buy it? no.
will i keep playing it? hell yeah.

just tossing my 2c in there :)
