    Game was supposed to release yesterday, 10/14, but no retailer in my area has it in stock yet. Regardless, as soon as I find it I'm buying. Always was a fan of the series and this one looks like a lot of fun.

    I thought Sega/Secret Level did a good job w/ the Incredible Hulk game so it'll be a must buy...when I can find it!

    Word on the street is that it's beyond terrible. And if you buy it I will point and laugh in your vague direction.

    I saw a "hands on" demo on xplay and it looked pretty crappy and didn't capture any of the spirit of the original.

    I guess then everyone will be laughing at me then. I tend to stay away from reviews. Only recent review I agreed w/ was for Iron Man.

    Please, send Sega a message by not purchasing rather than with buyers remorse :(

    I'd rather send today's Sega a message with postal anthrax.

    BRB, police at the door.

    That's really too bad that this is most likely really bad. I haven't played it yet but you know, I have suspicions. All the work that went into making this (well, some work, right?) could have been either put into making the next Sonic game better, OR they could have just went and designed a fun, downloadable 2D brawler like the old school Golden Axes.

    Man, why all the hate for a game that none of us have even played? Or is it just towards Sega in general?

    I've spoken to people who've played it, I've watched videos. It already looked like an utter car wreck, the opinions merely confirmed such suspicions.

    People who got the game for free want their money back, what does that tell you?

    They probably would have been better off spending the petty cash on an XBLA/PSN port of Revenge of Death Adder. Everybody pisses and moans that theres never been a good Golden Axe sequel, but nobody played the one that actually exists since it hit arcades in the SF2 era and never got a home port because the MD wasen't up to it.

    I don't normally judge games before I play them- and even this one is technically a "wait and see", but sometimes, especially those of us who've played games for decades, get that feeling in the pit of their stomachs that something isn't right with a game. Sometimes you get pleasently surprised, but not often. And, even if this turned out to get decent reviews, this is pretty heavy season to get everything that just gets decent reveiws.

    Also... no reviews until after the game is released... Spider-Sense tingling!
