Huh, I guess I got a glitchy game as the only time I have/had to tap the space bar was on lifting doors and shite. ie Press E sit back and watch the cut scene for the boss fight.

Great. Just great. On top of it being an UGLY pos its also a BUG riddled POS. /sigh

Reviews on games are purely subjective, there is ZERO benchmarks and the like to use to give an objective opionion on them. Maybe its because we are (mostly) mature gamers here at HWC that we dont like it. Maybe if I was a 13 year old again the idea of getting a BJ at the start of the game by two blonds, 3 breasted monsters, wall titties I could slap and get squirted with milk, steal a turd from a toilet, knocking out a christian bale like character and the other (painfully) low brow humor would be "pure win". Id like to think more of most teenagers but maybe I am wrong. IDK. YMMV, etc etc.

Sounds possible they were targeting the game for the age group of how long the game was in development. Maybe they just wanted to get the game off their plate and stop everyone criticizing how long the game took to come out.

It took 15 years to come out, you would think they would still have geared the game toward those whom grew up playing it, guess not.

I'd question the validity of that review site, as it gave LA Noire a lower rating

and look at what they gave Homefront
