    Seem to be getting mixed-to-positive reviews, this. Anyone played it yet (assuming it's out - should be today)?

    A bit tempted after reading the EG review, but others have panned tt for being too primitive and reliant on the 80's gag, so it'd be nice to hear from some real gamurz.

    Other than John Walker being a miserable sod all the reviews seem pretty positive.

    How could you not want to play it?

    My PC copy didn't start downloading until far too late for me to play it last night so I'll be giving it good go tonight.

    I'm downloading it now but won't get chance to play it until midnight going into the small hours. Which oddly seems the perfect time to give it a blast.

    I think it looks utterly brilliant and don't think I'll be disappointed.

    The opening music is very nearly the Terminator theme...that will do for me.
    Now onto the gameplay. :-)

    I'll be back

    Mk 4 style muthu-fucker. It is like 1984 C64 all over again, except it doesn't look shite :-)

    Played first half hour or so - bought a genuine smile to my face, the opening is just ace :) hope this is sustained - it's like Far Cry (any), but with the volume turned up to to 11 - its like Predator-meets-Terminator-meets-(bits of)-Aliens - music is spot on as well.

    So far so fab.

    Far Cry 3's combat was so polished and fun, that a less bloated eighties themed fun-focused Biehn voiced take on the same FPS mechanics just can't possibly fail.

    So is it an XBLA game? Or do you need FC3 to play it?

    Looks brilliant, how many MS points is it? I think I have about 2000 to burn!

    It's 9.59 if you're a PS+ member on PSN (11.99 otherwise).

    Not that I'd buy it on there as I paid about the same for the PC version from GMG.

    Just completed the save a nerd side mission, upon completion I was expecting a "you have saved ....enter an EGers's name here" to pop up on the screen ;-)
    Only played for around an hour, but Ubi seem to have nailed the 80's action vibe 100% and obviously the gameplay is spot on.

    Workday.

    End.

    Now.

    I'll be storming into my house after work shouting "EVERYBODY GET OUT" in my best Arnie impression so I can grab a shot of this. Checked at lunchtime and it's downloaded. It's just sitting there. Begging to be played. Damn you mundane weekday work!

    3-5 hours I think ?
    Still good value+reply if that is your thing. Good amount of items to collect. I'm playing on normal, which seems about right at the moment.

    Edit...also games always take me longer than the times quoted in reviews.

    Jeff Gerstmann of Giant Bomb said it took him 12 hours to do all the main and side missions, but he didn't bother with the collectibles. Sounds like you can get through just the main quests within an evening though.
