can someone review bloodwake for me?

I am curious about this game. Looks sort of cool, but gamespot says its a 7.9... anyone own this? And is there a reason this game didn't rock? (Not that 7.9 is terrible, but it looked like it had 9 potential)

Thanks.

I've played it quite a lot and I think it rocks. If 9 is the tops I would give it about an 8 also. The lack of variety in multiplayer hurts its rating. The single player game is very addicting. The water enviornment is very real. When you are in stormy and rough water it is very hard to control your boat and weapons. Fast boats, big explosions, huge weapons....the only thing this game is missing is hot babes sunbathing on the beach. Oh well guess we can't have everything.

I give it a B. Better than average game but not the best in the world. I have had a good time playing it.

My friends & I have just started doing using the multi-player features & that is a big plus!

EGM gave it a 8.0, 6.5, and 4.5.

Highlights of each editors comments were:

"nothing is very ordinary about this surprisingly deep and original game." - 8.0

"repetitive mission-based gameplay risks preemptively abandoning ship." - 6.5

"I could stomach this mundane premise if the controls didn't work my nerves" - 4.5
