28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: It has a history on the first Playstation console, comes with net play, some dialogue scenes are spoken in French and it is a third person shooter. For what I was concerned it could not go wrong. I did not need more than a few hours however to realise that this game took a wrong turn.
