Available to download now: approx 360 meg.

Had a couple of goes and I'm sorry to say it's absolute shite. The least instinctive "fighter" I've ever played. It's almost impossible to get your character to do what you want - and it really doesn't help, when you have a "unique" control system, if you don't put any instructions on how to play the f*cking thing.

The whole gangsta schtick doesn't bother me. The fact it's an unplayable mess does.

Yup. I loved the first two. This just seems like a horrible mis-step. :(

Not my kind of game, but found the art style pretty nice. I really like the dancing city and spinning sky, good to see people trying different things.

I gave it another few goes last night - having glummed some idea of the controls from the kids on gamefaqs. You press up on the right stick to grab - then use the d-pad to execute a throw. What cacky-fingered genius came up with that?

It does look amazing, to be fair, and I warmed to it slightly having got to grips with the "scratching" idea... which is still too slow to implement.

Incidentally, word around the camp fire is EA put the wrong build up for the demo - and the game should be running twice as fast as it currently is.

Played the demo.

Made me think about just giving up on games completely.
