Eurogamer.net gave it a 10??

It's actually pretty fun. A top-down puzzle game where you have to shoot/bash/punch with split-second reflexes rather than match 3. It's not a 10, IMO, but it's good. Very challenging and inherently unfair (you vs 14 guys and no weapons to start with), but not really "unfair" as there is always a solution if you have the skill.

Here is me playing it for 45 minutes. SPOILER ALERT: I end up getting the high score (against the developers, no less) in the last match.

I played it for about an hour this morning and I couldn't figure out how to create different profiles or teams for local play either.
You can't. It's all tied to your Steam user name. Just have to put all your teams in at once.

I can see both sides of the equation on doing a review, but I simply am not able to play enough of the game to evaluate anything that would remotely constitute the level of detail I require in writing a review. As a comparison, SotS 2 was better off (if you can believe that) and playable enough (and I even waited a week on that one) to render a verdict and talk about what was missing. In the case of LoP, it seems like large chunks of the game are missing or wholly underdeveloped. This doesn't even count the large number of bugs that cause corrupted saved games and crashes to the desktop.

I honestly have nothing to write about. If I did a review, I would be making analysis up based on whatever features are described in the manual. I did send out a tweet regarding this issue, so everyone should simply avoid the game until further notice.

Why?

A bug corrupted my campaign and I'm not starting it over until I am sure it won't happen again.

More confounding is that after SOTS2 someone has actually the gall to do this shit over again.

When a publisher gets a retail release date, the game ships whether it's ready or not.

This iteration brings a ton of enhancements besides the obvious graphics update

Like what? The game description is very vague on what they have added and improved.

Thanks Mr. Allen, Salvation Prophecy looks like something I'll pick up when I'm finished with SPAZ.

Good deal. SPAZ never clicked with me for some reason. I have been enjoying Drox Operative, however.

I still don't understand why some (or more) people up North don't have air conditioning. I was up in Pittsburgh for a week and it was hotter there than in Florida. My A/C clicks on a 5 AM and I'm fine with it
