      I'm always suspicious when a game just appears out of nowhere with no advance notice. Mother-in-law games generally suck.

        This game has been advertised for months now. Why would you say it just came out of nowhere?

          Because I was referring to the fact that it arrived in the dead of the night wothout a "gone gold" or shipping notice. I see that as a strategy to get sucker buys before the poor reviews start rolling in. Apparently that's the case here with OXM (hardly known for its tough scoring) giving the game a 2.8.

            Hmmm...interesting that the UK OXM gave it an 8.2 and the US OXM gave it a 2.8.

            Is it possible that they played two completely different builds of the same game and the US OXM palyed an earlier, incomplete build?
