Halo 2: marketing budget of $10 million plus, 65+ team (programmers and artists designers and producers).
Mr. Robot:marketing budget of as much change as we can fit in a coffee jar, 1 artist, 1 programmer, 1 dog.

New, lovely, lovely, Mr. Robot review in Windows XP Made Easy magazine (Issue 115). Mr. Robot scores 9/10 and I could quote any line of the review here - it's all good. Most amusing thing about the review however was we are alongside Halo 2, which only scores 5!

Maybe it's the dog that makes all the difference...

Some quotes:

"Mr. Robot has more charm in a single screen than 20 big name releases"

"What's immediately striking is the beatuiful artwork and design"

"easily one of the most attractive looking games we've seen for some time"

"spend a little time with Asimov and Mr. Robot reveals hidden depths"

"the puzzle, platform and rpg elements complement each other perfectly"

"the robotic cast shines thanks to a witty script"

Am I the only one who thinks it weird that Halo 2 would be reviewed in Windows XP Made Easy, considering that it's Vista only?

Sorry, it's full title is: "Windows XP (and now Vista too) made easy magazine". Smile

I've seen those results echoed in a great many places though. As I recall, Mr. Robot scored fairly high in PC Zone/Gamer, whereas they both thought Halo 2 was pretty pants.

The fact of the matter is: Mr. Robot is the Dog's unmentionables (so to speak), whereas Halo 2 is simply a pile of poop.

I never understood why people got excited over those Halo games anyway. Certainly they're pretty, but they're oh so shallow aswell.

What all this is direct evidence of however, is that it doesn't take a large development team and lots of funding to make a great game, quite the contrary. And that's awesome. Now if only most of the World's gamers realised this, we'd be set.
