Guardian writes: "Delay is seldom a good sign. The games industry's position as the preeminent "popular" art form, having usurped both music and movies, means that as well as the substantial-going-on-vulgar profits available, there are also the same indicators as to a project's state of health as apply to music (umpteenth remix, for example) or movies (second director fired, seven different names on the script). Think of the Stone Roses' Second Coming. Think of 1998's The Avengers. Delayed and delayed, and then delivered – to indifference at best and heartfelt raspberries at worst."
