I’m not a big gamer (far from it) but I have to say this game does sound amazing. I’m tempted to give it a try and held back only by the knowledge that I’ utterly useless at this sort of game.
If any of you have tried it out yet I’d love to hear your thoughts on it – please share them in the comments.
