"Brilliant and Captivating"
5 stars"

This game at first appeared rather dark, something a bogan would play. I was wrong – anybody can play the game for hours on end, yet one is capable of putting the controller down for any period of time, be it two hours or two weeks, and pick it up, feeling as if they never left the game. Truly amazing experience, can't wait for a sequel.
