1. That link seems to be dead.

  2. It appears Ubisoft has pulled the link, I’ll see if it’s been reuploaded.

  3. to coincide with the game’s HD release on the Playstation Nework and Xbox Live Marketplace.

    Yeah, too bad the PSN version is delayed to “later this year”

  4. Cool. Thanks. My google-fu was failage.

  6. I’m in the middle of a replay of this game and it’s prompted me to reflect on my selective memory. Before I bought the HD version on Xbox Live Marketplace I was singing the praises of it to my wife: “the smart story!” “the relationship between Jade and Pey’j!” “the innovative world!” “the excellent music!”

    All these things are still true. But what I’d forgotten, or perhaps what I’d subconsciously elided over in my desire to love the game was: the wonky camera! those stupid fucking mines in the interior moats of the slaughterhouse! the interminable trial-and-error stealth levels! the frustratingly impossible mini-game in the Akuda Bar! the hollow emptiness of the city! the fact that Pey’j gets ripped from your side early in the game and you spend most of the rest of it trying to get him back!

    But that said, the game still holds up. I wish they’d stop talking about the sequel and finish the damn thing.

    It can be done. Basically you just have to start off with a bang and not let up.
