Free Daikatana

GameTap has word they are going to make you their… well, that they are offering the chance to play Daikatana for free through the end of this year. To accompany the free play, they have posted a Daikatana Retrospective that looks at the storied history of this first-person shooter from John Romero and ION Storm, robot frog-induced warts and all.

Add me to the list of people who finished this one. It wasn't that bad of a game. It had a couple of flaws, mainly your sidekicks, but once you learned to keep them out of the way, it wasn't too awful. The Greek levels were actually quite a bit of fun, and memorable.

The problem was that while it was decent, it was nowhere near what its marketing and PR made it out to be, which turned it into a pile-on whipping boy - I've found that 3/4 of the people who bashed the game the most had never bothered to play it. They were just trying to do the 'cool' thing.

It wasn't perfect, and the annoyances made it not worth a re-play, but it really was fun.
