    Ok, Mike, the "cut scenes" were being done in a way that emulated manga. Being an artist does not excuse you from acknowledging that, even if it is done very badly.

    Everything else is pretty spot-on, though. I had heard the development of this game was pretty shady, but I haven't read any details.

    I'm not a nice guy, I just play one in real life.

    I get the impression they didn't like this much, then.

    I tried the first game. I didn't really care that much about the blandness of the art/environments, since a game can still be fun, even if it's not a looker. But the camera was terrible, the constant interruptions were terrible, and the combat was kinda button mashy and not very exciting. It looks like the sequel not only does not improve on the first, but may actually be worse. It felt to me like an old PS2 era game that somehow got lost for ten years and then somebody found it.

    Funniest first 15 ever! I realize mike and jerry did not enjoy the game, but I eperienced so much joy watching them suffer through 15 minutes of consol gonorrhea. I'm not sure an STD is correct analogy because usually you have some amount of fun before you contract an STD; although maybe it's like toilet seat herpes?

    This game is now apparently being pulled from stores and buyers are being offered refunds.
