This game has gotten some very good press from RockPaperShotgun and Penny Arcade.
However most of the major "gaming news" places have not mentioned it much.
Why the hate towards a single player game?
I LIKE single player games. Reviewers like Yahtzee like single player games.
Why so much buzz about multi-player crap?
There are some good multiplayer games out there but honestly the single player experience is NOT DEAD.
And don't get me started about the whole "Needing Internet Access to Install a Single Player Game" thing. (And not have any internet requirements on the box.)
