Best review I've read of this game, or perhaps just the one that best mirrors my own opinion.

The first and second halves of the game are like two sides of different coins. They're nothing alike. And one of the coins is a rare Gold Dubloon. The other is a dirty penny.

Mirrors the opinion I've heard of several other people whose taste I've come to trust. They really messed this one up good, didn't they?

I never got to this point in the game and now I'm not sure if I want to. Perhaps Fahr--pardon me, Indigo Prophecy, serves better on the shelf than in the console, forever keeping me wondering if the latter half can really be all that bad.

Well, it's not as bad as ALL that. I mean, it's still not a bad game. It's just that compared to what they set you up for in the beginning, it's massively disappointing.

I've actually reviewed the game before (over on the XBOX) and gave it a much higher score and praising review. I now look at that with a bit of confussion after a recent replay because the second half of the game is depressing. I still say that people should at least try the game; it's worth playing for the first half alone and the second half may not be as abbressive to everyone.

Thanks for the kind words on the review. I was unsure how it would come out as it was basically just a huge rant dressed up as a review.

It is not that bad, it is worse then bad.It is awful. How they managed to screw up such a good, promising thriller story is beyond me.

I tried the game based on a review from here. Lasthero, I think. I didn't like it, ended up getting rid of it.

Finally read this one. I'll send you edits by HG mail since there's a lot of them. Though I will tell you here that this really was a good review; I liked it a lot and pretty much agree with everything Janus said about it. Just one minor discrepency, though...

This does give you another chance to see a pair of boobs, though. Unless you’re American. Turns out you’re not ready for digitalised cleavage yet.

Yes. That's why they're all over God of War. You know, even though it came out months before this game. =P

Comment 2: XD Trust you to comment if there's even a hint of cleavage in a game. I think I'll go back to my Musashi review and replace all the typos I fixed in there just for your manly pleasure or whatever it is you get from it.

Wait till your birthday and I'll post a semi (not really) suggestive pic of a mermaid from that game. That'll make you happy. I guess. XD

God of War didn't make the sex interactive. Please your naked girl! Use the analouge stick to replicate your trusting! She'll be written out of the game in half an hour -- go on, ruin her!

Thanks for the catches and for reading my review. I hope the sex refrences didn't make you blush too much.

I remember the interactive sex. I got to play it in a ROM version of that mini game.

It sucks.

EmP
Half an hour? I thought the chicks were written out of the game the instant you were done doing 'em. Or do you get to bone other girls in that game. I do admit that when me and my friend started that game, we only played through to the part where you're going to that place on the back of the titan or giant or whatever and then decided to play something else and I never got back to playing it myself.

Lordy. I feel redder than that sunburnt penguin I saw at the zoo a few years ago. Though how much this is from what you said or what I said I have no idea. XD

You can nail two distinct girls. One only works if you take the time to woo her; it's more a reconnection of a dying relationship than the chance to lever off a bra. The second whips her top off faster than Boo vaccuums fries and rubs her nipples right in the camera, ignoring the fact that it's completly out of character for both the people taking part.

OD: You're mixing up IP and God of War.

Again, goes to show how very different the two halves of the games are.

Ah. I was confused as to what OD was talking about. In that case, OD: There's only one sex thing in God of War - it's a "mini-game" (QTE, really), where you watch a vase shake and eventually shatter at the end of it. You get a lot of XP orbs for it. That's the only sex thing in that game ever, minus the boobs everywhere, but that's not really sex as much as it is nudity.

And shutting up now before people start getting any ideas about me if they haven't already.

Ah, I see. With the way both games were being talked about, I got confused.

But all this sex in games talk does induce me to bring up my own pathetic disclosure: I was livid in Fallout 3 when you get the option to pay 120 caps to "share a bed" with the hooker in Megaton......only to find out she just goes up and lays down on the bed and then you get the usual option to sleep for "x" number of hours. 120 caps for that when I could have just warped to Arafu or whatever and slept for free in a bed there..... Of course, I didn't save that.....but still.....

BIGGEST. LETDOWN. EVER.

I like in Fable II that even though the screen goes black, you at least hear giggles and other sounds of enjoyment as a reward for sleeping with someone. It even lets you choose whether or not to wear a condom. I played as a female character and my options were mostly limited to lesbian romps. Even though I was playing as a female, I wasn't anxious to hear men appreciating the sex.

I had two different wives and tried for three, but made the mistake of going for a third in the same town as the second. One got jealous and I killed the other one and then the first one said "But she was my friend!" and sadly wandered off into the night. It was a touching moment. Then I got back home to the first town and someone was blackmailing me, threatening to tell my first wife about my indiscretions so I had to pay gold to silence the fool.

Ah, Fable II. A game that finally got sex right!

It does sound suspiciously like my own experiences with it. Thankfully it's optional.

I was always highly annoyed at the "sleep with me for 120" option in Fallout 3. It was a bit... literal, for my tastes.

ESPECIALLY after Fallout 2, where you could marry and then pimp off your wife to a brothel.
