A demo of the game is now available (for most) and it will be released next week on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Early review snippets:
It's never nice being mean about a game with as much ambition as this, but if we're talking sheer value for money then halfway through the 14 hours it takes to complete Maria II you'll have experienced one really good shooting mission and absolutely no decent car chases, of which there are only a couple in the entire game.

I had a great time, all things considered, but it would've been more satisfying to have felt like I was part of a story.

A tad worrisome, mostly the first. The demo was pure action, hoping for more of the same.
Hmm.. dissappointing. It sounded so promising.. looked so good.. had everything going for it.
Nahhh forget about it
Wow, this worries me :/
