Such a shame when will it ever stop! Just money making that's all they care about.bring back avp1/2 and job's a good'un
A real shame as it had so much potential.

How do you trust a review where they cant even spell packed.
Firing off a grenade from the pulse rifle and the resulting sprite-like explosion took me back to 1990s, and Rebellion's classic AvP on the Atari Jaguar, running at 15 frames per second.
This is why you should wait for the review. This was in the must buy category, hoping of course it wouldn't be up there with Left 4 Dead or anything similar, but not any longer. Wouldn't spend 5 quid on it. It was always a bad sign when no reviews came out before the game was released.
And why release it in this state? The only reason is to fleece the customer out of their cash, I pity anyone who preordered. Puts me off buying anything from gearbox.
I don't pity any one preordering. It's their own stupidity to blame and preordering only benefits the publishers, not the consumers. Just stop preordering, stop.
True, I never pre-order, always wait for the review. The only thing I'd say in this case is that I do feel sorry for anyone pre-ordering off the demo and footage taken from that. There's at least one game site showing the difference between the demo and what was released and you'd swear it should've been the other way around. The demo looks class - great lighting and smoke effects. Looks like you are seeing the difference between different generations of consoles.
And seeing as it's topped charts following release, I can't see any publisher having a problem realeasing such a shoddy game with those sales. I hope those sales figures don't keep up.
