8 or so bees in my bonnet
my copy of uru finally arrived,
on the very day urulive was 'put to bed'...
just my luck... (looked like it might have amounted to something)
anyway, the environs and soundtrack are luscious as ever
but progress is slow, as usual
this puppy is more fiendishly and mind-bendingly difficult than riven ever was.
still. when you hit a brickwall
you can always go on a photoshoot.
the control system takes a bit of getting used to
but really is quite intuitive
once you get used to it:
a first person shooter
without the shooting
if you see what i mean.
or you can always 'lara it up'
which is nice.
this incarnation of the ongoing saga improves on the piece on so many levels
(if you'll forgive the pun)
it's a shame ubisoft's accountants or whoever
couldn't bring themselves
to keep ubulive...live.
ever heard of a loss leader?
