    It's gotten middling 7.2-ish reviews across platforms per gamerankings, with most complaints being that it's repetitive and wears out its welcome quickly.

    There doesn't seem to be much middle ground, with reviewers seemingly either giving it a 5 or a 9.

    @chrisguy

    9, huh? What is repetitive about it?

    I ask because I once played through an entire The Office browser game start to finish in one sitting.

    I feel like Stache is channeling Kory with the green type.

    Castlevania demo was okay.

    Strengths:
    Open-world is compact but fun to explore
    Controls and settings are highly customizable and work well (dual analog shooting mode is a big plus, not sure what hte Wii version's controls are like)
    Game has decent mission variety in the story path and in optional activities

    Weaknesses:
    Parodies everywhere, most of them lame, but at least they don't last long
    Last bunch of story missions are frustrating


    All in all, mostly good, a little bad, nothing too great.

    I'm afeared to try that Castlevania demo.

    @Guillaume
    Supposedly, Sony has released tools that make it easy to port PS3 games to Vita. I dunno how, but...

    Parodies no good? Maybe I should get this game..

    Did you play the Dikembe Motumbo Old Spice game at all?

    Well, hopefully, it doesn't suck eggs.

    @nate38 Are they parodies of movies or parodies of games?

    Wow... Retro City Rampage actually released? I have been anticipating this game, reading about this game, and wondering about this game for years. Perhaps the longest of any game (at least the longest of any game I have had a mild interest/curiosity in). And now that it's out (and I realize that it's been out for a while on other consoles), I'm questioning its worthiness. I'm still happy it finally hit the Wii Shop Channel, though!

    Both. Plus '80s pop culture as a whole.

    Castlevania demo was good, not great. It definitely needs a bit more but I assume there's a whole lot more to the game just like any other Metroidvania.

    Something I found funny was the first note left by some adventurer. It says (very paraphrased): "The monster shattered arm and then my shield. I will be killed by the third blow." Soooooooooooooooooooooo..........when exactly did he write this note?????????????

    @sirmastersephiroth

    Maybe he was dictating?

    Or he had access to a pause button?

    @Simbabbad

    You know, I JUST got that "dictating" joke. Only took me 20 years.
