The first few reviews are starting to drop across Australia and New Zealand, giving us an idea of what the ANZ critical reception will be like.
AusGamers was the first local review to drop, giving the game 9.0 out of 10. They had their criticisms, but they were larged relegated to niggles in a game they were otherwise very impressed with.
The rest of the media so far have been quite uniform. Official Playstation, GameArena, Games Blip and Zoo Weekly all agreed on an 8 out of 10 for the game.
Some people are grim on the co-op as a concept, but the consensus is that it's been well executed. Most of the negativity around the game, in fact, is aimed at relatively small problems like backtracking.
By and large, however, all local media seem to be agreeing that it's a well put together, incredibly lit and shot and intense sci-fi sooter with a lot to offer.
