GameSpy just published their review of Hammer & Sickle. They think the idea has bundles of potential, but aren't too happy with the execution. You can find the full review here.

Thanks for the heads up Decado

We'll see. Gamespy has been wrong on numerous occasions before, I'm getting the game to see for myself.

In light of his load time, the reviewers specs are fairly low.

I think he's right about one thing: HS shouldn't have been marketed as an RPG game. The SS series are tactical shooters with RPG ELEMENTS, not real RPGs.

I don't like that review - reviewer seemed to be expecting Fallout, not Jagged Alliance, and was severely disappointed.

What an awful review. See what he wrote under "Sound." This is supposed to be an action game indeed...
And again the reviewer is disappointed that it isn't more Falloutish when it's billed as an RPG.

Why do they get Soccer game afficionados to write reviews for games like SS?
