XBOX 360 Operation Darkness (bwah?)

I saw this at the store. 30$ Fight Nazi's and Werewolves.

I'm so there.

Then I fired it up. It crashes on the movies and has apparent production values the worst Bollywood films. I put the controller down after the 'cut scene' with (this is WWII in Africa mind you) modern trucks and a B1 bomber in the back ground still shot.

Uh.

Has anyone played this? Is it worth slogging through the crashes?

    Goozex, it's worth 700 points. Trade it in for Psychonauts (400pts) and Stuntman: Ignition (300pts)

    There's active demand, so it should go right away.

    Use my referral link! (if you want)

    It got a 6.7 on Gametrailers. I would trust them over IGN. So, it may not be that bad.

    It's unplayable. It crashes the Xbox on ever movie if you don't skip it, and sometimes even if you do. It goes.

    Hmmm. Psychonauts huh? Tempting.

    Yeah, I really wanted this to be good, the concept's just too cool. But I tried the demo, and yeah it's awful.

    I concur. I was hopeful, but it was nearly impossible to play.

    I always thought it was bizarre how similar this and Valkyria Chronicles are, and yet this game sucks so hard while Valkyria is one of the best games I've played in a long time.

    I tried the demo. I would buy it at $5, not $30.

    I played the demo when it first came out and that alone convinced me not to purchase.

    Ditto. I'm so glad there was a demo out for this, certainly saved me some money.

    More like slowly. Battles are soooooo long and boring. I was so disappointed.

    By being a BAD DEVELOPER apparently. Such a shame, all those werewolves and nazis for nothing.

    Microsofts certification process is garbage if they let such a buggy game ship.

    I think I played this demo. Ended with two tanks? I actually enjoyed it... but not enough to spend cashes on it.

    You guys are missing a few very important part, it wasn't werewolves and Nazis, it was werewolves, vampires, zombies, dragons AND Nazis, and they still fucked it up!

    Man the real game was trying to fucking control the camera without it going bonkers.

    The rest was just a mini-game. That sucked.
