After playing the Xbox 360 demo I was pretty psyched about the game so I picked it up for PC instead and I can’t believe how horrible the graphics. The graphics are just ugly, flat, and dated. The game also doesn’t like recognizing gamepads too well either. BMG is full of mini-games galore where you have to work jobs to unlock the main quests in the game.
While there are about 10 or so types of jobs they get dull and boring really fast. There are games ranging from good delivery, racing, taxi driving, to working at the Honex factory. You can unlock art, arcade games, and even new costumes for Barry but it’s not really worth bothering for. The game has a busy world but it’s small, cramped, and everything feels lifeless. The game just falls flat on its face due to the terrible graphics. I expected the next-gen graphics but what do we get? The PS2 graphics. BMG will satisfy you with the first run through because of it’s great mini-game based action but after the first play through you’ll be done.
