    I really enjoyed the "old" version of the game as sold on Desura, and I had quite some fun with the Sequel Alpha "Into the Ice".

    However, this Steam version is something different.
    Not in the sense of bugs and crashes, the game still suffers from those, but it´s amazing how much additional content has been put into the Ultimate Trash Edition, and the GFX overhaul is amazing.

    Still many people who rush through the level or lack the knowledge / wits to get the jokes will complain about what they don´t get (neither an over-the-top shooter nor a good adventure), but all of those with an IQ high enough as well as time and love for exploration won´t find a better entertainment value out there.

    Basically, if you don´t like the game you are either stupid or you played it wrong.

    You might hate the game for it´s technical flaws like occasional crashes, ongoing clipping issues and a very rude attitude towards usabilityYou might hate the game for it´s technical flaws like occasional crashes, ongoing clipping issues and a very rude attitude towards usability (the controls are questionable and can be changed only via a settings INI file).

    You might call the graphics mediocre (despite the fact the texture resolution is ranging between high and extrem) because of the lack of shining metal and polished surfaces everywhere.

    You can call the AI stupid as f*ck because IT IS.

    But if you call the game "not funny" or "not enjoyable" or even "not entertaining", you were too stupid to get the jokes. Or you are a heartless ****

    For me it´s one of the most entertaining games this year.
