  1. I was hopeful for this game because of insomniac games but when I found out the publisher was Gamestop I was curious to know if the budget was adequate.

  2. Marin in the bottom left looks like a young boy because her hair is so dark and blends with the grey background.

  3. Fuck I get sick of looking at reviews and thinking I might play that tonight… Saturday night got nothing else to do, yep might just aaaaaand it's not out till next week. Fuck you gamespot fuck you!

  4. I work at Gamestop and since their punishing this game they've been on our ass about pre order of a game no one wants.. hopefully with the so-so reviews they'd stop..

  5. Recently, Gamespot has really surpassed IGN in terms of review quality. While I generally prefer metacritic, video reviews are a welcome pastime. IGN's have been going steadily downhill since Colin and Greg left, so its good to see that there is another news source that is making some decent reviews. Cheers.

  6. I can't wait to play this until then I cannot really say you are right in only giving it a six but the footage you have is great to watch on mute till Tuesday.

  7. Thank you sooooo much for uploading all your review vids in 60fps. It represents gameplay really well. I don't know why some other review sites are still stuck in the 29 format.

  8. As I understand it, the story and world are based on Irish folklore. This is why I wanted to download it off Steam and review it for my blog Fairy Tale Fandom. Unfortunately, now that I've downloaded the game, I can't even get it to load.

  9. This review feels like you are smearing the game for being "uninventive," but also smearing all the things about it that are different from other Metroidvanias, like the puzzles or the patience of "waiting for your boost to recharge (which is only whole few seconds of waiting). You can't have it both ways. Also, you slammed "the generous health allowing you to just pummel your attackers without much need for deeper strategy," while at the same time complaining about the one-hit-kill squids. I'm confused, do you want MORE challenge? Or less challenge? Again, can't have it both ways.

  10. just finished it and i have to disagree with the review. the controls arent tedious. i found them to feel spot on for an underwater environment. the puzzles are fun and fair. and having to drag items through the environments is part of the challenge. the game is worth playing and easily worth buying at $15.

  11. ummmm… this actually IS a book as well. Despite some of the repetitivenes I personally really enjoyed this game a whole lot, but to each his own.

  12. This is a really strange review. It seems to be full of positives, followed each time by an attempt to spin the positive as actually a negative. Worthless review imho.
