The concept of this one sounds interesting.  Only two reviews out so far, one good, one not so good, and both are from magazines, so we only have the score to go on.

I picked it up, but I haven't decided if I'm opening it.  Anyone tried it/heard anything about it?

I was looking forward to this one until I read the Game Informer review, and then I put the brakes on.  I was hoping somebody else around here would try it out and give a man-on-the-streets opinion, or at least a couple more reviews to come in. 

It doesn't have to be perfect for me to enjoy it, but I don't want to get stuck with a stinker.

I may have to be the guinea pig on this one.  It's sitting in my bag with the shrinkwrap on.  There was a positive writeup from someone at PAX.

Heh, absolutely not. 

This is sort of an action/beat 'em up/platformer game where your character is/was a detective who had his head taken off by the mob.  Some crazy doctor put your brain in a jar on your shoulders and reanimated you...or something.  As you play the game you can change your abilities by slapping on different heads.

The main character's voice is done by John C McGinley, who is probably best known as Dr Cox on Scrubs.

He's no Rik Mayall, though.

Games Radar liked it okay, though they think it may be too "cult."  Score: 7

So did Gamespy: 4/5
