Yup you guessed it, 2 out of 5.

They had crash issues, and couldn't grasp the controls,


Darner, Endy, and Y2k was in the review.

Not that bad. Thankfully.

If you're still learning the ropes, expect to get spanked over and over again. While this is a little off-putting to the newbie, it does reinforce the fact that "Battlegrounds" is not a button masher.


At least they managed to get that right. This is better than the average review for OMF:BG.

Not that that's saying a lot.

But hey, they didn't make any errors that weren't based on opinion.

Well, the reason it got low marks is the crashes, and in my mind rightfully so...

True. But the crashes are mostly ironed out now.

This would probably be an average review for another game, but here, it's a good one.

But you can't expect them to use the prerelease pacth and the review was done a couple of weeks ago.

Of course not.

They delivered a honest, though not exceptional, review with no glaring flaws and no signs of going above and beyond what their job called for.

On a lighter note, the American Idol game got 1 of 5.

Lousy cash ins on TV shows get their due.

Did you realize that we haven't even given TUF at least a chance to post here?

Edit: Okay, Oak posted. Now I feel like less of a two person thread monopoly. Smile

These robots are shiny. In fact, the whole [filtered] game is shiny. It's as if the developers found the little code that turns on the shiny metallic effect hidden in your graphics card and applied it to every single surface in the game.


They kind of made a good point there :/ I think the glows are overcooked.
