I'm sure we've all played a game and been annoyed by a certain aspect of the game. Whether it be those blasted invisible walls or the fact the game is so darn linear. So the question is, what has annoyed you the most in a game?

Personally for me it's those darn 'Save the NPC' in RPG's. Virtually every time they have the most god awful AI, low stats and easily get killed by deciding against running back to my party where it's nice and safe instead opting to charge into the enemy and getting a sword through the head. I think what makes it even more annoying is that it can be solved so easily - just let the player control him/her. It's not hard

Yep, if it was 'bums-to-the-wall blasting action' it'd be a warning of an impending sex attack.

Balls to the wall sounds like a prison inspection. :'S

The tear is the closest smiley I can do to represent winceing at the thought.

Quality title. Equal to Halo for balls-to-the-wall* blasting action.




* I have no idea what that means.

That is generally the angle of the game, yes.
:D

Two player is amazing. So many times you save each others backs from green egglets or monkeys.



I've remembered a flaw of the game though:

The graphics were so grainy on one wall, that I couldn't even tell that there was an opening for a door in one section.

I love on SS how you stand in a huge open space, and knowing full well what'll happen next, press a button or take some item.

Everything just goes t*ts up and you see about 5,000 baddies appear on the horizon, and all charge for you..

Amazing game. Perfect for that "sh*t, sh*t, sh*t!" factor.
:D

The screaming kamikazee blokes are a brilliant addition.
