    Whew......this game is tough to get a handle on. I was really frustrated with the learning curve as it took me a couple of hours to get a good feel for how the game plays and several more to become p...

    Well it is finally here! To start off I have been waiting for this game since its original annoucement. And what I have experienced so far is a mixed bag. But the mixed bag leans way more toward ...

    Altogether a valiant effort but not worth the time. Bugs are haunting this game from start to finish (if you have the stomach to see it to the end) making it unbearable. It seems that every few hours ...

    Slowest game I've seen for the platform.

    This game sucks.

    Rated on January 02, 2006 by Dukeboy

    If you are looking for a good action game then stay far away from this game. The action is the worst thing about this game. The sword fighting is totaly repetitive and shooting a gun is completely po...

    It could've been great

    POC is similar to a 17th century grand theft auto, it is a must try for any gamer intrigued by the Content.
