SOMI: SE review up at IGN

Just wanted to let you all know that a review for the XBOX live version of SOMI:SE has been posted. Pretty positive review overall. I'm pumped for tomorrow!

Hey thanks for adding the link, I probably should have thought to put that in my original post. Anyway, I know I'm gonna try to convince as many people as possible to purchase this tomorrow so that there are better chances of continued special editions... I'm really hoping for a MI2:SE

The adventure will last you five to ten hours, but there isn't anything to explore once the credits have rolled.
What a strange thing to say!

Haha, well it's better than the usual, "lack of replay value" bull**** reviewers used to be so keen on.

Yeah, because everyone wants to play every game at least 10 times through and find something new each time.

Yuck. Good quality writing from FOX NEWS... er... IGN.com.

I stopped reading when he used the word, "cartoonish." Real journalists don't just add "ish" to a word. Ugh.

I bought it on steam, and when I went to download it, I found out that it was over 2 GB in size. Seriously, wtf? Unless if all the backgrounds are uncompressed TIFFs with a 1600x1200 resolution, and all of the voice files are uncompressed WAVs, then why is the game this large in size?

It's made for 1080p flat screens. If you hook up your computer to an HDTV, I guess you could get the most out of those 2 GB.

2 gigs does seem like an awful lot though. The XBOX version is only 530 MB. What could possibly be in the PC version to make it 4 times the size?
