I caved and ended up buying it. I really need to find a better outlet than shopping for depression.
I was actually pleasently surprised by the game. Yes it's simple and linear and lacks replay value over the three characters, but something about it did catch me. While there wasn't much in the way of coherent story telling, what was told was interesting. And it was just simple, mindless fun. I enjoyed Diablo I for the same reasons. I've already finished it with the Culabine and have started with the Gladiator. My biggest gripe is that the stories don't really follow through. And getting to Aegis 9 was just a little too easy using an umbilical.
