All I'm saying on this is please try the demo before you buy. From what I played it has pretty poor controls and the graphics and character design are bad. The rewinding is a neat idea, and the puzzle pieces are okay but not really that creative. Past that, pretty poor. I'll spend $15 on a good game, but that's not what this is.

Commander Shephard from Mass Effect, just because I think it's the perfect balance between a default character and one of your own creation. The ability to choose your back story (although restricted) is a sign of what's to come in future games, not just visual and numerical customization, but history, mentality, etc. I'm one who hates even naming a character let alone creating one, but BioWare's choice to give you the option was great, and I've gone both routes in that game, default and custom.
I'll be choosing PS3 for this one, pretty much for the controller and remote play. Supposedly there is another "surprise" for PS3 users in store other than remote play, which either wasn't announced yet, wasn't true, or was announced but so dull I didn't notice.
Even back in NHL's heyday I didn't get the series on an annual basis, but the control scheme introduced in 07 rejuvenated the game and it only improved more in 08, so I'm very excited for this year's release.
I was able to get both Paragon and Renegade achievements on my second play through, actually getting them both up to 100%, so yes, it is possible. It's not really being either one 75% of the time, it's filling the corresponding meter up to 75%.
I've gotten slammed for this before but I think it was a lot like Oblivion, at least in regards to structure. There's a basic story line with multiple side quests that are tied together into their own little stories. I thought ME was much better for a number of reasons, but still I feel they share similarities.
If it was more than 5 bucks, possibly not, but for what it's worth you do get a nice amount of content. I'd say it was about 90 minutes worth. I honestly forgot about the content until I did a second play through and then something made me remember so I went and got it. Now I'm just waiting on some more, and this time I saved before the "no turning back zone."
I usually play based on what my reactions would be in real life (if real life involved me being a commander on an intergalactic space cruiser?), however I just had to go for the achievements so I decided to be totally good the first time around. Second time around I was completely evil. It's much easier to be evil. Nothing like lying to someone that you finished their quest when you really didn't.
Yeah, I read it after playing the game, which I think worked out better because it was easier to picture what each species looked/acted/sounded like and made the back story a little clearer. I think the universe created in this series is great and I'm looking forward to reading the second book and of course the second game. Just don't over do it, small doses are working well.
