<b><a href="http://www.spacesiege.com/spacesiege/index.php">Space Siege</a></b>, the Hellgate: London of 2008, has been getting disappointing reviews right and left. Up next is <a href="http://www.crispygamer.com/gamereviews/2008-08-26/space-siege-pc.aspx">Crispy Gamer</a> with a score of "fry it".
<br>
<blockquote>In fact, so much is made of the struggle between cybernetic enhancements and true humanity that I can't help but suspect that part of the game is missing, that someone somewhere ran out of time. This missing center of the game only draws attention to how pedestrian the rest of Space Siege is. You ride a subway to a new location and kill more aliens. You ride an elevator, activate an item and wait for your new orders. The sense of disappointment wouldn't be so acute it Space Siege's developers hadn't spent months talking about the dramatic choices you would have to make in their story. The plot and some items point to this concept being central to the original design, but all we get in the end are corridors of nasties that need to be cleansed.</blockquote>

Oh the humanity!

Hmm... Maybe that's it? The whole "what does it mean to be human" is actually derived from the meaning you get wandering around looking for the missing moral choices. Chris Taylor truly is a geenyus.

That's what you get for not spending $20 mln to bribe journalists and get you some serious hype so even teddy bears tearing up ass and leg will seem like heavan to retards.

I usually hate "professional" reviewers, but with Space Siege... I actually feel sorry for them.

Yeah, that job sounds way worse than cleaning toilets or fighting in the army. :roll:

Yeah, being beaten and raped sounds way worse than slowly having your throat cut inch by inch over days. :roll:

Yeah, having Achey Breaky Heart stuck in your head 24/7 sounds way worse than having to sit through a school play of Othello, preformed by 2nd graders. Three times a day.
