Read it yourself!

Or just watch this... thing
  



Anyway, I enjoyed the demo. Cool running around an actual city in top-down.

Anyone get this game? How do you like it?

I thought the demo was kinda boring. Like a flash game or something.

There's a minigame in WTF almost exactly like it, albeit with horrible graphics.

Definitely not a complex game, but it does have quirkiness, and I like that.

No, they're built in and look like Google maps.

That would be kinda awesome, though.

The Last Guy and WTF are from the same developers, so that's not a coincidence.

I don't know about this game, its alright. The videos of it looked more fun than the actual game was in my experience with it. I can't really put my finger on it what exactly annoyed me about it either.

I found the demo to be quite boring myself.

The video review made me laugh though.

I'm surprised this got an "Editor's Choice" combined with a 9.0...I played the demo and I was completely unimpressed.

I don't understand how anyone could really pay $10 for this game, but I know this guy did it...for shame.

Thats to high. It deserves 3 stars, or a 7.

Uh, I'm not sure why you question whether I've played WTF but... I posted that on September 1st and Jeff posted his review on September 3rd, so no, I didn't "just read that in GB's review". The game that The Last Guy is clearly based on is one of my favorites in WTF.

After playing it halfway through, I'd probably give it a 7.0 on a 10 point scale for me personally. For $10, it should have more variety in the abilities of the character or something. There's just not enough variety. It is easy to pick up and play a round or two, though, so it has lasting value in that sense.

I thought the demo sucked. Just not my kind of game I guess.
