Seems like a great game. I, especially, like the running and jumping around style which reminds me of Assassin's Creed given a first person twist and some tweaking to the moving around thing. Although, that's the only thing I've noticed in gameplay vids and the only thing I like. Would it be worth buying? I mean that's not the only thing I care about and I hear it got great reviews, so should I buy it?

I would, it's an amazing gaming experience. It has some downsides, mainly in how short it is, but the speed runs for each chapter of the main game plus time trail courses add on to the value (as well as playing through additional times anyway) and length significantly. Really, though, games this inventive don't come around often, especially from EA.

I love it. It's a different first person experience and a lot of fun when you get your running skills up.

It has some puzzle elements in it, too (usually where to go next and how to get there).

I'd get it.

Nice. I'll have a look at it. Also on a side note are their any good multiplayer games out there at the moment for the PC that I could buy or any good deals for such games that I could get on Ebay. I'd prefer if they were fighting games over other genres but other genres are fine too as long as it's a good game with a good multiplayer element.

I don't think they're planning to release a demo for PC.

My recommendation is to wait until it is cheaper. I would say this is a don't pay more than $25 for game due to short, repetitive gameplay and low replay value. I played through it's short campaign twice and am not only bored with it now, I felt it wasn't all that exciting throughout the story or climactic in it's ending.

First, the obvious, you really have to like jumping puzzles a lot to enjoy the game. Some of the jumps seem to have inconsistent results. Some of them you'll try them several times then suddenly they'll work even though most of the other tries felt identical in effort.

Second, perhaps another obvious, you really have to put away your I want it to be a shooter game feelings even when there are chances to use weapons, it's very limited and down right annoying in places.

Third, besides being very short, it's not fleshed out very well. Virtually all the puzzles are route finding, on the run scenarios, with no side objective puzzles to get to certain needed objects or tasks.

Most of the game is spent chasing down someone near to you that's been kidnapped. It's a very linear in both story and gameplay and uneventful. You really have only the acrobatic route finding to think about, which isn't enough to keep one interested very long, and perhaps part of the reason they made it so short.

Unless you like hunting for shoulder bags or the above mentioned speed runs, there won't be much in the way of replay and there are only 2 difficulty levels. I swear it seems some like it just for the novelty of being different than other games. IMO that in itself does not make a good game.

I can really only think of one particular melee battle in the game that was all that engaging and challenging which was a diversion from the content that fills most of the game.

Spoiler: Show
The ending though is extremely linear, short, and non combative. It's a real let down from a setting that could have been used much better.
