I want this game, too bad I have so many games on my backlog.

I'm the same way. If i didn't just load up with games on Black Friday, i'd have bought it already.

It's a pretty fun game. Lot of easter eggs in there.

That's ok for this budget of game I think.

Not bad. Maybe I'll pick it up later when the bugs are fixed.

Game is fun, but has crashed 3 times on me so far... so not the most stable of games.

Pretty good. That game probably has a bit of staying power. It's the kind of game your average joe-blow sees on the shelf and says "Why not. This'll be a romp."
