That's a little disheartening, I was excited about the story for this game, but if that's the gameplay, I'll probably skip this title. Oh well, I've got a Sly Cooper game, Dishonoured, The Last of Us and the latest Hitman to keep me interested.
I tried the XBLA demo and it was boring as hell.
Just shooting and sand
and more sand
Oh and I got the joke.
Hm, sounds like a terrific idea, marred by uninspiring gameplay. I'll wait for reviews.
