Excellent story and dialogue; some really funny stuff in here that typically doesn't work well in games. The actual gameplay could be more involving and interesting, but this deserves a look.
Really enjoying this. It's fun and the puzzles involving darkness are very cool. Dialogue is spot on and definitely not for kids
A pretty solid third person action game. Good story and pacing and excellent cutscenes make for an enjoyable experience. The combat becomes a bit repetitive as the game nears its final quarter. All in all, a pretty generic third person action game made better by a great story, superb voice acting and a unique style.
A brilliantly insane game, buoyed by a puerile,.childish and brilliant sense of humour. Slight annoyances are present, such as short running time with no replay value, occassional gameplay issues and each difficulty achievement needs an entire walkthrough. Otherwise a great game, a must rent. Achievement difficulty 3/5 if that..
Although the gameplay does get repetitive fast. The voice acting and script is top notch and keeps you entertained all the way through.
One of the craziest games I have ever played but guaranteed to make you laugh. Great story, reminds me similar to Resident Evil 5 with the aiming, reloading and switching weapons. Awesome game!
Great game a must rent. I have been playing games for almost 5 years and havent seen anything like this was really fun and enjoyable. At first wasnt sure about the absense of automatic aim but was surprised how well it worked. The dialog between the two main characters (garcia and skull) were witty and interesting. The only downside was that fact that it ended very quick and hasnt got any multiplayer.
I must admit that when I first started playing I wasn't convinced I stuck with it and I'm glad i did. Dark environments off set with school boy humor and with later changes ingameplay mechanics to keep you amused looking forward to a squeal. 4 cilla blacks out of five! I hope you like dick jokes :)
