I also don't understand the fuss about Brink. Maybe I am wrong but to me it just looks like Wolfenstein Enemy Territory / Enemy Territory Quake Wars only just in very slow.

That's what I thought at first, too, but the more I look at the video series they are putting it, the more I like what they are adding to that formula.

3/8 is around 4/10? Seems a bit low considering what you've said about the graphics.

I don't weigh graphics highly in my overall scores, despite dedicating a section to them in my reviews.

I preferred action a lot more; some of the things you had to do (like using the darts) in the stealth mode were annoying and hard to get working correctly. Switching between characters was kind of dumb, too, and required because the friendly AI wasn't the best at staying alive or engaging the enemy.

I had played Breach not too long before SH and you can take cover behind anything, so that make the various limitations of SH stick out a bit more.

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.

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.
