Anyone else picking this one up?  I was a huge fan of N+ and this one has the same feel to it and the reviews have all been glowing and they say the challenge is high.

I have had to put down the open world 3rd person and 1st person games as they seem to be causing me to have panic attacks. I always knew there was a problem but after 30 minutes of free roam in Red Dead yesterday the camera movements really screwed with me.

Just finished the first level. Very fun and there is plenty to do for such a simple game.  The dark world levels are going to be rough down the road.  I also like how the different characters have different abilities, which are beneficial on certain maps. (requires you to find a zone or enough bandages)  So while playing a level you are going for the speed run, looking for bandages and possible warp zones.  Then you get the luxury of playing the dark world version of each level which is just that (think many saws and you are a piece of meat).

For 800 points this is a steal.

As I further my way into the game, for 800 points this games is a highway to carpal tunnel syndrome. Difficulty is too high for me. Wish there was a way on XBL where you could gift a game, like PSN.  There is now way I would even try to go any farther.

So I picked up Limbo and Toy Soldiers to see if they are all they are cracked up to be. So far I am liking Toy Soldiers, especially that you can enter the shooting modes and fly planes around. Limbo I will be trying tonight.

I got to Level 2-1.  I think it was 2-1, possibly 2-2.  I spent so long letting the bloody thing kick my arse red raw that by the end of it I'd completely lost track of such details.  Oddly, I hadn't died at all before that level, and then spent an hour doing nothing but...

Did you do the dark levels and the warps on Level 1?  Those are pretty challenging. I already spent the 800 points on the game so I guess I will keep trying but man it makes N+ seem like a breeze in comparison.   There is also a glitch they are going to fix where if you get a bandage and die the next time you get it you will not see the little bandage outside on the level map. It does credit you for a bandage though.

Okay I am through. After racing poop in the boss level 3 for an hour and then going through level 4 (aptly titled - HELL) only to encounter freaking lazers.  Good luck with 4-16 for those who get there. I want nothing more to do with this game. 2,565 deaths is more than enough for me.
