Sorry I wasn't referring to your review. Mainly the GameSpot and GamesRadar reviews. Your review is definitely detailed. Although I don't agree with what you wrote about the cover system. It did take some time to get use to but overall I think it's done really well and adds to the play "fun" factor of the game. You're the only person that has said the graphics were good - which came as a surprise. They aren't bad that's for sure.

OK, I just didn't give the game a good score, so I assumed I wasn't being accusatory or anything; I just thought I might have missed something (goodness knows I'm not perfect).
My main problem with the cover system is that there were objects that I felt should be used for cover that couldn't be (some concrete barricades, wooden pallets, etc), which kind of destroyed my faith in the system.
I thought the game had a great level of detail; it was just too dark.

It certainly feels over exposed, but at the same time, with the money it makes every fall, is it any wonder Activision keeps pushing them out?

I know I would.

Speaking of FPS, I'm looking forward to Brink. I've largely avoided it up until the last week, but after watching a few videos yesterday, it looks like a blast.

Me too.

I had a response ready, but then I realized I just paraphrased my review. I can see the game's appeal if you can get past the issues I can't (heavy arbitrary scripting, poor camera angle, some objects can't be used for cover, checkpoint-only saves, dark shadows).

You'll notice the poor scored reviews go into no detail of the games features or gameplay

Which things did I not address?

My question is: how much different is this than the Enemy Territory games? The videos make it seem kinda similar.

It's a neat idea, but the path choices aren't as many as I would like, and the alien turrets are always in the same spot for a particular level.

It has some interesting concepts, if you like turn-based fantasy strategy games.

The only game I can think of offhand that was recently released that was even a PC exlusive is Shogun 2.

Just looking at Steam and Gamer's Gate for five minutes, I spy:
Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops
Dawn of War II: Retribution
Fate of the World
Men of War: Assault Squad
Cities in Motion
1... 2... 3... KICK IT! (Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby)
Theatre of War 3: Korea
Europa Universalis III Chronicles
Revenge of the Titans
Atom Zombie Smasher
SpaceChem
RIFT
Darkest Hour
Dinner Date
Dungeons

Actually, if there wasn't a demo, you'd probably want the opposite of what you asked: "are there any people who haven't played Dungeon Keeper who played this?"

I didn't play Dungeon Keeper, and I did not care for Dungeons.

Out of Eight gives Atom Zombie Smasher a 5 out of 8 because he sucks at it?

Plus lacking online multiplayer and the randomized units and the small unit upgrades, but basically, yes.

I would, except I feel kind of bad about it because that's somebody's game.

But here is my only 1/8 score (I have had three 2/8 scores).

I try to avoid playing crappy games and I get to choose what I review, so usually most of my scores are on the high-ish end.

Trapped Dead review throwdown!

P.S. I might have been generous with a "3".
