On Wii!

I'd prefer an HD remake but this'll do plenty fine, specially at that price :-D

Such a great game, criminally underrated - an HD reissue would be very welcome.

Couldn't agree more, flex. Actually this and Rogue Trooper (same developer) would do well to be updated for 360.

Although almost everything Rebellion have done this gen has been pish, sadly.

Rogue Trooper was excellent. Great cover system too, actually better than later games that get credit for "inventing" it too.

Presuming you mean Gears (since you've flogged this dead horse once or twice before), I don't see too many people claiming they invented it, only that they popularized it and serve as the real reason why so many post-Gears games went in that direction.

Not Gears, Rainbow Six Vegas. At review time everyone touted on about the "innovative cover system" that had actually been done *way* earlier (and possibly even earlier - I think Kill.Switch lays claim to the first incarnation of this sort of cover-based action).

It's just a problem I have with American gaming and American reviewing. Nowadays if it doesn't sell in the states and it doesn't get mentioned in the US press then it didn't happen.

Kill.Switch is indeed the game usually cited as the "progenitor", but Gears (which came out before R6:Vegas) is quite rightly the one everyone credits with its subsequent proliferation. I've never read anything proclaiming Vegas over Gears as far as popularizing cover mechanics goes.

I think you'll find WinBack on the N64 was the first game to introduce cover.

;)

Not Time Crisis? :p

To back up my argument, I shall quote the ever-reliable wikipedia:

"Kill.Switch is considered the inventor of the modern virtual cover system"

(citation needed)

Allegations that I wrote that line are to be directed to my press secretary.
