    enlighten me fellow eurogamers, is there another review embargo at play here to hide a shitty game?

    i sure as hell hope not, because i want this game to be good. i want me some classic western style shootouts, but the fact that there isn't one single review out yet, despite the game being on store shelves as of today, slightly bothers me.

    maybe somebody played this already? if so, let me know if it's any good

    What's the penalty for embargo breaking? It can't be that bad if you break it when it's on the shelves, surely?

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    Ah ok - cheers mate. Not in UK stores until Friday.

    I too have a bad feeling about this one, really want the game to be good but something is telling me it's gonna be pants.

    When did games start coming out on a Tuesday, isn't that a Harbinger of the apocalypse?

    ah, yes, i remember living in the UK where retailers actually stick to street dates. i wonder how the publishers get 'em to do that, here everybody sells new games the day they come in

    Check metacritic, theres a couple of reviews up there also. Reading them, it appears to be pretty good although not as good as it could/should have been. Might be worth picking up though.

    metacritic only has reviews for the 2007 original, no reviews for the new one yet:

    Well, cannabis is legal is over there so the publishers probably give up once Mr Store Owner says 'Duuudee the world is like sooo big'

    Oh and they fine stores here, rarely happens unless its for a big game though.

    I really liked the first one and even if this is the same with more levels I can't wait to play it.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    9am PST - so 5pm BST, i.e. in ten minutes :-)

    First rule of games buying. If its on sale before the reviews, treat with immense caution.
