BenTarrant commented on Review: Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition...:

Becuase the controls are unforgivable. They're uninviting and relentlessly Difficult. That in itself is an issue of accessibility by default. It's enjoyment is too Exclusive, much like the Souls franchise I compare it to. The point is definitely lost on many and that's undoubtedly a damaging aspect of the title, closing the door on many of the more impatient players. I definitely agree with @get2sammyb on this Too, where the devil is Move support!?

I appreciate the angle they come at and that's reflected in the Score but even the hilarious physics gets old after your 5th attempt at a heart transplant. It's nice to know you've been enjoying it though! It'll be interesting to see how the co-op mode affects gameplay for those hitting the accessibility issues..

The option to jump between first or third sounds like the best option here. Silent Hill fans can experience it the classic way while newcomers from the PT can continue the experience. As for 2016, that's a fair wait for hopefully a franchise defining release. Irrespective, I'd still take this all with a truck-load of salt.

I totally get people worrying about over saturating the console with Indie titles but a fair portion of them are fantastic. While AAA titles are a big deal, these smaller titles have a lot to offer and at their low price points (£5-£12) they're a far nice option to experience than picking up a naff £55 AAA title that's been rushed and being "fixed" in innumerable patches and expensive Dlc packages.

It's chess in Its finest digital form. Just nothing particularly different from the PS3 bar graphics. If you like chess and don't own the original then go for it!

I think it would diminish the gravity behind gaining a platinum trophy. Granted there are many PSN games that warrant it but many of them are... Somewhat easier to max out, people would be stocking up platinums left right and center. There should be a Uranium trophy, rewarded when you gather 100 Platinums.

In all honesty it focused too much on gimmicks for me to be swayed. It's innovative and a progression however the lack of focus was pretty disappointing. I think concrete judgements should be left for after E3 and all aces have been played. I'm still sold more on the PS4 but will be open minded until all the cards are on the table, especially considering both have near identical internal architecture.
