Just to point out, you can still see our news page by clicking on the link on the front page that says "Headlines Disabled".  The Psi-Ops review can be found here.

You mentioned that it is "a bit easier than it should be" which is actually a positive for me at the moment.  I've slogged through some tough games lately, so I am looking forward to something that hopefully doesn't frustrate the me too bad.  I haven't played Psi-Ops, but the powers make me think of the Jedi Knight games, where the Jedi powers - if used (or exploited) properly - does imbalance the game.  I'm glad to see the control is good and the camera sounds intelligent enough.

I'm going to pick it up eventually, but there are so many titles out I need to wait for some to lower in price first.  It looks solid, and has recieved positive reviews, but it just doesn't have me salivating.  Your review got me a lot more excited.  I feel like this won't be money wasted.

I own it, I love it.

If I were to review it, mine would be even more positive than yours was.

The game does seem to be mildly short. I'm about 7 hours into it, and I can't imagine the storyline continuing for more than maybe 4 more hours worth of play.

However, the game is constantly rewarding. It's always giving you new extra content to watch, things like character art, deleted scenes (basically just a movie of someone playing through parts of a level that were removed), and quite a few other things.

The game does a good job of keeping you on track without being obvious. It might take a few minutes to catch on to what you're supposed to do in a couple of spots, but it's all very well thought-out.

I even found one strange item in the game, and it told me I'd found the evil dark dwarf or something like that, and it unlocked a special mission with very specific goals. Use only this power to kill this many guys in these odd positions in this much time, stuff like that. It's actually fun, and it adds a bit more length to the game.

I'll be playing it through again on a harder difficulty once I've beaten it in an effort to balance out the powers a bit, as on normal I've only died a couple of times.

Graphics are pretty good, not great, but they work really well and I haven't noticed any glaring problems or slowdown yet. The game generally sounds really good.

I don't know what else to toss in there really. I'm just having a lot of fun playing through it.
