It has a picture of a Chimera with the text 'Resistance 2' plastered across the front.

I had a huge list of 'must buy' games already and now 'Far Cry 2' & 'Dead Space' have come along & got great reviews from all over.
ARGGGGHHHHHH...I'll have to add these two aswell. An exspensive couple of months coming up.

Hmm, I can think of better things to do with £40, like burn it.

 

nah Im jokin, its not that bad, nowhere near a 9 though IMO and im a big fan of FPS and free roaming games.

 

Personaly I dont trust OPM, they are hardly going to give bad reviews to their own games. Ill stick with PSM3

agree with Rebmahc, certainly not perfect. But then i never trust an 'official' magazine review... too biased IMO. The SR2 review seems a little harsh, considering it has no more glitches than the last 2x PES games...

The reason i buy OPM is because usually, they get more exclusive screenshots and interviews compared to the other gaming magazines.

Sometimes they are biased but what do you expect? Its promotion right?

They are usually pretty spot on with there reviews for the none ps3 exclusive games but you do have to take what they say regarding the ps3 exclusives with a pinch of salt.

When someone scanned the GTA review it was requested by I think... Ben Wilson to be taken down.

pish posh, after last years debarcle of pes 08 scoring very highly I wont be so gullible with ANY mag reviews in the forseable future. I cant understand how anyone can get so darn excited that any "Mag" has given a great review, In the times of rental shops springing up all over, Why doesnt anyone just rent before buying, then we will have no more ranting threads..."sony...how could you !!!" From now on I'm renting before throwing the cash quite so readily, then if any screen tearing, trophy deletion or daft no hoping online gaming problems can be seen before shredding my cash due to some sweaty fellas that dont get out much to get a few extra pages of adverts for their mag just for my hard earned to get completly wasted on.....It's a recession kids, hard times ahead and all that, any game has to go through the sourmash trials before being blindly bought from now on....I suggest you do the same before buying and coming on here whining that It didnt quite hit the mark.
