6 8 8 i know these are not an average but come on xD. This game is getting great reviews. And not a huge amount of Depth well it is a Download game, if this game cost 40 pound fair play. But come on, stop reviewing it like it is one. And surely a downloadable game that last forever is good?

Oh well im sure ill enjoy it

And don't forget. BF 2142 is in the same boat. One game mode etc, but hey it is because its Battlefield right?

This is how the Left 4 Dead review should have read!

Fair points made about the game, though it's still fun. Once less people start playing it though and co-operation is a bigger part then it'll get better. Great idea though.

We're a website that runs reviews of videogames. If we don't like a particular game, what do you expect us to do?

Tom's review explains why he gave it the score he did. Some sites have picked out similar criticisms, while others clearly don't feel that these issues detract from the overall experience.

They've given their opinion, and we've given ours. Deal with it.

I agree with mydeaddog her. BUT i think the review scores should be made by user review scores. They have these similiar to gametrailers.com. Maybe that would even a few things up on this site?

Yeh my point is the score seems to low when you take in the facts.

The main flaws are

Not a huge amount of depth. Come on it is a a Cartoon action game. Like I said before Bf 2142 has one game mode. It is common place for download games.

Games seem to last forever and by that I guess you mean the stalemates. Fair point.

Tbh i would pick a flaw in the aweful uk pricing. But hey what ever. I do still think sites review the high end PSN/XBLA games like they are retail games

*Wipeout Warhawk BF 2142 etc* Sorry I dont know like any XBLA games.

I still think that
8
8
6

Even though you dont agree with averages is harsh, and personally thing 7 is more fitting as

I still would ask what did you really expect more?

Fair enough, that was probably a bit harsh. Apologies.

I think it's fair that these flaws significantly hampered your experience, but here's my opinion of it. As for lack of depth, anybody who's played Fat Princess well knows that it has a huge amount of depth in terms of teamwork/strategies/techniques, especially compared to the usual "aim crosshair at head+shoot" from most other online multiplayer games.

And then there's the long games, which I have no problems with since I play with friends with headsets and with enough coordination, the games for me has never been over 15-20 minutes. But even an hour long game, that's not long especially if you compare to games like DoTA or every single multiplayer "non-shooter" games, in fact, Fat Princess is quite short comparatively.
