RPS didn't love it -

Wow, he craps all over it. Sounds like a disaster.

What's with all the horrifically buggy messes of games being shoved out this year? Are publishers forcing devs to release games before they're ready?

I wasn't going to bother anyway, but it takes a special kind of talent to fuck up a game that is only ever a reboot of the version that went before.

The one thing that the JC games needed was a point. JC was pretty awful, but JC2 made a lot of that right. You could hoon about blowing shit up, which was fun for a while, but always turned into the frustrating hunt for that one last destructible speck of fly-shit that you had missed but had to have in order to 100% the base and make it yours. JC3 kept all that in there, including the fly-shit, but added in fucking awful online 'challenges' that nobody on the planet ever cared about, but which would bombard your screen throughout your play session.

Seriously, strip the challenges shit back out, get someone to write a bunch of missions and script all those splodes into a narrative - job done no? Oh, and co-op. If ever there was a game made for co-op, this is it.

Well it is John Walker so I'd take what he is saying with a MASSIVE pinch of salt.

Eurogamer were a lot more positive.

John Walker: This game is a prime example of the patriarch exploiting the down trodden women in this neo colonial society!!

Mack: It's full of fuck'n fem-nazis innit, who wants burds in games?

Did anyone end up picking this up? Retail sales are down 60% in the UK on JC3. Another series that Square are going to have to give a rest?

No, I have great swathes of JC3 unfinished that will give me the fix should I need it. No interest at all in this.

Massive interest from me loved JC2 and JC3. But I've spent way too much money on stuff recently that I'll wait for a juicy discount.
