Yahtzee explains why Mindjack just doesn't work.
Whilst I find yahtzee an extremely funny and refreshing reviewer I've got to say I think hybrid multiplayer games can work. Left4dead is a great example, and I'm sure brink is going to be an amazing addition. MindJack is a game without anywhere near the necessary gameplay infrastructure to pull it off. There needs to be a LOT of in-game organizing going on behind the scenes and only AI controlled directors can be relied on to do it. But just because it's difficult to do doesn't mean it can't work.
