MAN! it's good to finally be a member after reading this site for three years. ANYWAYS, I really agree with this review. I've recently played the game, and there is nothing better to relieve steam than setting people on fire and saying "HAHAHAHA! That's for hitting me on the heels with your cart in the supermarket!". Ragdolls help the game so much to make it entertaining. On the whole, spot on review!

Ragdoll physics are really fun, in this game or any (launching your guy out the windshield in GTA is always a good source of amusement). And taking over enemies' bodies = complete win.

Glad to see a review for this one, as (if anything else) it could mean that a Psychonauts review is coming soon (pretty please?)

If you want to see a horrible game, rent "Driver", or as pretentious people refer to it, "Driv3r". It's really just a cheap retread of GTA, where, if you run a traffic light, cops get out of cars and shoot you. Also, driving on the wrong side of the road evoke police helicopters. Also Also, they've introduced undercover cops, or as I refer to them, "F*KING CHEAPSHOTTERS". Seriously, one out of every 3 people is an "undie" cop and seems to have an uzi and a handgun somewhere in that trenchcoat, or skintight "whoresuit".

I reakky really really realy love this game, I've owned it for a few years now, and i agree completely with everythung you've said. One other thing that annoys me are those third level soldiers in the mech suits...you know, the ONLY enemy in the game that can't be lifted with telekinesis.

I have owned this game for some years now, but let me tell you that the ability to mind control a guard, have him shoot his comrades and then having him get down on his knees and kill himself never gets old. Canīt help but grin with satisfaction every time I do it.

I never got round to playing this game, but ragdoll physics are indeed magnificent.

I was playing Max Payne 2 and trying out a free sampler CD I'd got with a magazine. I was on the level at the construction site when I got shot to fuck and fell to my death smashing on many metal girders in slow motion while some miserable as fuck song by, I dunno, My Dying Bride was playing. Not only was Max's ragdoll slow motion plummet funny as fuck, but the miserable falling to death song was just the icing on the cake.

You actually could lift them, but you had to set them on fire first for some reason. Still a pain, though.

Yeah, the gameplay was absolutely epic, but the characters, plot, and dialogue sucked terribly. To the point that it was funny. My personal favorite part was tossing the technicians or scientists or whatever the blue guys were into the incinerator in the beginning.

Great game. Excellent use of ragdoll physics. Needs a sequel BADLY.

Outstanding game. Probably, in my opinion, the biggest problem with the game would be the co-op, though. Honestly, what were they thinking, making one person move and the other shoot/ use psi power?
