Thats an 8 page review I would like to read.
Ok someone start scanning :)

Over too soon seems to imply less than 8 hours - that just doesn't seem fair for $60. There was a similar issue with Gears but it was so immersive and realistic that after playing the game you almost felt as if you had been in a war (that is far more artistic than most action movies and most of the "modern art" crap to all the idiots that suggest games cannot be considered art). Plus there was an online element (and the hardest difficulty level is tough). If this is true then it seems that HS is a rental - after all, there is no online play to extend the experience and you can play it twice in a weekend.

Note to developers - if you are developing a game, please plan for at least 15 hours of solo gameplay or include online gameplay.

So HS would probably have been a AAA titles except it was too short - cause an 8 is not a AAA - it just means it is worth playing (either by renting or purchase).

It is bad that they are short, didnt read the whole article but did they play the whole game? I must say i didnt like Gears campaign at all, but the multiplayer was probably one of the best i ever played.

What happened with all that space made possible by Blu-Ray? I want excuses, people!

Panthers4018d ago

Out of those 3, Uncharted. But I also want Lair.
