Looks like the sort of thing Platinum would do. But comes as no surprise Grasshopper are involved.

If it plays as good as Bayonetta I think I'll be having it away on its little twinkly toes.

Sigh. I should probably try to finish this, but I've got halfway through and keep insta-dying - and I can't recall the controls to dig my way out of trouble.

I'm doing the bit where Paula chases you. She catches me and I die immediately. Am I just forgetting the run button?

Other than that: one of the most forgettable over-hyped games in years. Nerds need to calm the fuck down with their reccommendations.

I got to the bit where you get attacked on top of a small area on a roof and I decided that I'd rather play something fun.

Thank fuck I rented it.

I think I got as far as the boss that chases you through the market and you have to keep shooting the exploding light barrels. I got very bored very quickly.

They keep raving about it on Weekend Confirmed and while it's a shame it didn't do better, it didn't live anywhere near up to its promise and it wasn't even as good as other similar sub-Gears of War Unreal Engine powered games such as Wanted: Weapons of Fate - which I actually persvered with right to the end.

I loved Wanted - although the controls weren't the most intuitive. I'm still mopping up the super-tough achievements on it.

Yeah I thought that was very much an under-rated game. I also meant to try Dark Sector as that appeared to have a similar vibe and was also received in a rather lukewarm fashion.

I thought Dark Sector was OK. Can't remember who I gave my promo copy to in the end.

I STILL love Dark sector! Was thinking about a replay earlier today, actually.

As I recall, you hated it. And loved Condemned 2. I think that thread was where we began to drift apart, emotionally. ;)

Hmmmm could be right, can't even remember where it got reviewed (possibly 'the dark place that existed before AATG came back)

It's probably no consolation to you that I went back and had another go at Condemned 2 a few months ago and found it completely unplayable :)

So you didn't get to the boss on a horse that shits darkness and that was the way you killed it?

I don't mind weird but Christ that was just stupid.

@Whizzo - no I didn't get to that boss. Sounds intriguing.

I only persevered as far as I did because I wanted to try the 2D side-scrolling bits. Still haven't seen them in action.
