Contract J.A.C.K.

I was too lazy to search if there are any other threads about this one, so I apologize if it's a repost... (I remember a thread about the demo, but that's it)

Anyhow, has anyone played the full version? I was planning on picking it up (Huge NOLF fan) but Gamespot gave it a 5.9, called it mediocre and said it's a 4 hour game at best. Not to say Gamestop is a good source of reviews (they gave True Crime a 7 something) but the readers even rated it in the high 5's to low 6's. Is the game really that bad?

Gamespot reviewed it.

Score 5.9

Last paragraph

Contract J.A.C.K. is sort of a backhanded response to all those naysayers who found Cate Archer's adventures to be too cute. The sense of humor, varied mission design, nifty Bond-inspired thingamajigs, and even the groovy 1960s threads have been swapped for a straight focus on action that strips the franchise of its identity and charm. It seems almost as if Monolith is sending a "be careful what you wish for" message to the complainers via one of the most uninspired shooters of the year.

yechh! Sounds like a really bad game. I was hoping it'd be better, too
