Short, still a little sweet
If you needed more evidence that I lack principles, I invite you to read my review of Wanted: Weapons of Fate at thephoenix.com. I believe I've said on at least one podcast that I don't care what a game costs, and this review clearly puts the lie to that claim. But come on: $60 for a 4-hour game? I would be ripshit if I had paid that much money for this.
It's always a little bit tricky to translate the review in the paper (x.x out of 10) to the review online (1-4 stars). The web version goes with 2 stars, which sounds about right. In the paper, I gave it a 5.5 out of 10. Go ahead and add half a point for every $10 this game drops in price. At $20, I'd give it a solid 7.5. That's a recommendation in my book.
