OK, who's playing? How long before the first walkthrough comes out?

It's a shooter on rails. No need for a walkthrough.

Cheat codes are the last resort for me. If I have to resort to them, I
feel that I am robbing myself. What was the point of paying for a game
if I am just going to cheat and not play it?

A Walkthrough is far more useful (even then I feel a bit guilty)
because it tells you what you to do, but you still have to play the
game properly and fight the enemies properly to do it.

I'm in too minds about walkthroughs that tell you how to solve a puzzle
(eg. TombRaider or some of the HL(2) puzzles). Half the fun of the game
is trying to solve the puzzle yourself. But by the time I look for a
walkthrough, I've probably been trying to solve a puzzle for ages and
am getting frustrated with the game anyway.

The best kind of "cheat" is a strategy guide which tells you how your
weapons work best, and how to best approach certain monsters (eg. if
I'd known that the Fat Boys in FarCry were immune to explosions, I
might not have wasted so many RPGs on them...) Strategy hints like that
don't tell you how to proceed, but they still make the game a little
easier, to get past a challenging section.

Packaging? Well, if I'm reading correctly; 3 CDs and a very, very
skimpy manual. What I mean by skimpy, example only, is it does NOT
list the game controls. I had to write them down by going to the
options and see what they were. It uses the "Checking CD" copy
protection process when you launch the game to verify CD# 1. It also
requires a separate "VP3 Codec" installation; which I really don't
like, I don't like special >> system << software being required for
any game.

The on-line reviews/previews say it all about game-play, especially
the Dream World missions. As some reviews have implied, the artwork
in the Dream World missions does seem to be slightly better than Real
World missions.

I take back that you need a walkthrough. I am finding my way around
without one.

thanks for the info about the packaging... but neither you neither stoic
talk about starforce so fortunately it hasn't got it

> like, I don't like special >> system << software being required for

totally agree with you!
a bad point against psychotoxic needed special codecs when there are so
many standard ones available... its really unfortunate

> I take back that you need a walkthrough. I am finding my way around

not in every game so i don't know if i will need it for psychotoxic
lately i've been needing more cheats than walkthroughs cause games have
become less puzzle oriented and more hard with the aiming

He's been talking about (the box of) psychotoxic for quite some time,
it's just been hidden among the raving.
However, it's not like he'll ever buy or play the game. I get the
impression he might fondle the box in the shop a bit, though.
