    how much did $ega pay for this review, I couldn't disagree more and here's why *MAJOR SPOILERS!!!!* Firstly you didn't mention the 172GB install over 3 blurays, I had to delete the entirety of knack from my ps4 hard drive to even get it to play. I was very, very, VERY sad :( Next the shoehorned in mini game where you team up with the cast of persona 4 to solve the mystery of who is stealing all the TVs. Look sega we all know you bought atlus but that doesn't mean you should be ramming cameos of characters from quality atlus games down our throats, we want sonic. Why wasn't knuckles from the new sonic game in this, he's far more likable than ryo. Also the hammy acting by morgan freeman in his role was just unforgivable, they should have cast pewdiepie instead for the role of narrator. Finally, the story seemed like it was written by a diabetic mute who has never heard of the term subtlety. Seriously, every chance the game has it's ramming its opinions about the nature of the human condition down our throat, just shut up and let me kill minorities. Overall it's the worst game ever 3.5/5

    So you're saying it isn't even as good as Halo Reach?

    Lies! No-one would feel sorry about deleting Knack. ;-)

    At first I thought this was a joke until I saw the screenshots and that giantbomb also reviewed it today. I decided to skip work and paying rent this morning and headed to Walmart to buy an xboxone (Screw you Sony fanboys) The lady there said the video game shipment wasn't yet and to check back in a few hours so I figured that will give me time to set up my new Xbox and install all the updates. My only question is does Shenmue 3 feature any Kinect support?

    I'm not used to seeing this sort of content until April 2nd because of my timezone. It was nice of you guys to sneak it in before the day is over :D

    Clever, but more than a little obvious, no?

    What do you mean? They give us the game, we review it... right?

    I don't get that this NinjaPopsicle guy is going on about... I'm playing the game right now and I couldn't agree more with this review.
