I'm been waiting for a review of BP, looks like it's turned out as I expected - good game, loads of potential, but horribly buggy. Is this what other people have found? Is it worth getting? Do the devs release a decent number of patches?

This eurogamer review is one of the best reviews I've ever read and it just happens to nail the game perfectly.

Is it worth it? I've been playing over 20 hours and I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of whats in this game. Yes, its horribly clunky performance-wise and it has some of the most stupid AI of any game in recent memory but as the review says, nothing is show-stopping. Theres a lot i could list that would put people off but the fact remains that I can't seem to put it down. I was up until 3a.m. playing it and I'm the type who is in bed at 9 p.m. most nights.

All I can tell you is that if you like the idea of an absolutely HUGE freeform world and gameplay and you can tolerate some performance and bugs (ok, a LOT) then by all means.....
