hahahaha.

I bet you was dancing around with excitement when you heard that on TV.

Ok, just read PC Zone's review - 75%

Not quite a classic then.

Oh well.

Hahaha, you should never listen to reviews you should always just see for yourself as thats the only good way of seeing if you like it, it wasn't for me but thats because i am not much of a new console gamer, there are bound to be people out there that have a different opinion.

what have i got to be bitter about?

I'll wait to hear about it from the majority before I take it as a bad game - as your opinion is slightly bitter-fuelled and therefore inaccurate.

I bet it was it was like "phew" for you weren't it?

You were just "itching" to give this game a bad review after you basically trashed this thread, so naturally you have some bitterness in your post.

Iíll wait for the full review, or betterstill, a review from posters who can give a neutral opinion, thanks all the same.

Rubbish, better games have been released on tapes (paperboy).

The casual gamer has no taste.

well just played this game for a bit and it's dire, saves are every 20 seconds and the graphics are laughable, it's terrible and i don't know how they plan to get away with it.

If i were you i'd go for Dead to Rights if you want just a max payne style third person shootie game, Overdose is a console game ad should have stayed there, no improvements seem to have been made graphically and the fact that they have 10 levels of graphical choice is amazing as the top setting is ps2 or lower quailty.

I preffered it to the original, it seemed less cliched and the environments weren't all built in huge square areas. I also thought the upgrade system was much better and the combat seemed to be more fun too.

Taking apart ED209 robots with a crowbar was quality too.

"I am ED209!"

"I am a cyborg with upgraded strength and a magnetic pulse upgrade"

"Oh ****"

I thought it was average at best. Poor storyline, a led by the hand dynamic and little of Spectors genius shining through.

I want to see System Shock 3 done with the Doom 3 engine dammit. It's perfect.....
