    Just played the demo. I understand what the reviewer is saying about the continuity of having to press the analog stick. However, I think that's what makes the game unique because you are always involved and thinking about the next move.

    I definitely enjoyed it and will be getting the game. I guess some people will like it, others won't.

    Definately sounds like a marmite game and something you have to try yourself before you can draw any conclusions.

    GTA IV got rave reviews, it almost seems a bigger budget improves scores

    I'm realy not expecting to like this, if I do then great. Just looks boring to me & I'm not exactly an 'OMG MW2 R0X0RS' kinda guy.

    there was a website where you had to do some clue evidence thing and you were granted a early demo code to redeem on PSN store.

    The demo is up on the Euro PS Store now. I have it. Looks are awesome. Gameplay ... won't appeal to everyone I think.

    Playing it now, looks lovely, strange gameplay, I'm not a fan so far!

    EDIT1: Just had a fight, very clunky moves to be made & it's very unclear as to what some of them mean, didn't actually take notice of the scene much as I was waiting for/following the QTE prompts.

    EDIT2: I need to get me some of those FBI sunglasses! (ruins the realism though)

    tried the demo a few days ago, absolutely loved it - have put in my preorder

    was a massive fan of indigo prophecy so i have been looking forward to this game for a long time!
    read some great reviews on that metacritic link, thanks Barrichello
