    This game is the most absolutely brutal thing I've ever come across. Do not buy! The new game engine is poorly designed which completely ruins the gameplay, and the wide-screen 16:9 ratio makes a blurry, pixelated game even harder to see.

    Brief, reasonably entertaining and mercifully cheap. [Feb 2012, p.103]
