To convey the level of quality this game achieves , I really only need
to give you one example: After I finished playing it for 3 days
straight, the game asked "would you like to start again on hard mode?"
I said yes and now I've played the game for 5 days straight. Nasty
gamer labels like 'addicted' and 'obsessed' are clearly less important
to me than collecting all 32 gold bolts, 13 holo plans and every
weapon and gadget. While this example speaks for itself, I do feel
compelled to explain why I've lost sleep over a game I've already won.
The reason is simple: constant rewards. Bolts (the game's currency)
are constantly chu-chinging and your weapons level up through use, so
even if you're dying all the time, you're still making happy progress.
The game is throws engaging and challenging tasks at you and makes
the best use of the six axis controller that we're likely to see until
the next sequel comes out. It lives up the gamer grail of being so
much fun; you never want to stop playing.
