I was waiting for Jim Sterling's review, glad he liked it. He said it is one of his favorite horror games now. I'll take his word over IGN.

I'll confess to cherry picking good reviews. Though I feel like I have seen more favorable reviews to bad ones, which most people here have posted.

GodisaGeek 9/10 (thankya Jesus!)

Liked? More like loved. He gave it a 4.5 out of 5. Never saw that coming.

Seems like most of the reviews are complaining about the length and numerous faux-endings.

Disappointing though.

Disappointing how? There have been LOTS of scores above 7 already.

IGN review has left a real sour taste in my mouth. Everywhere else it's scoring comfortably between 7-9/10.

The IGN review is weird...how can be a unpredictable AI a bad point?
: /

Anyway, i like this mixed scores. When a game has 9 and 5 scores.....its a rare piece of art ;D

Because it makes the game overly difficult. When you're dying that many times, it takes the fun out of it.

How come a game like Dark Souls is praised for its crushing difficulty but A:I is criticized?

It's been said all along the game is difficult. That's the point. It's supposed to be an uphill struggle. If you don't like that, you probably ain't gonna enjoy the game.

I'm interested to see how I handle that kind of game.

There's a lengthy section, about three quarters of the way through, when the emphasis shifts hard onto the Working Joes as your primary enemy, and it's no surprise that this is the worst part of the game: a joyless slog against a one-dimensional enemy that threatens to tip the whole experience into typical action game mode, all guns, fire and bombs.

ROFL!
