    All I can say is wow... I mean just wow...

    Ubisoft are really taking the piss here. We have the same game as the other two with a new skin.

    You're a handyman, and from the start you are again asked to see the boss, and get an emergency call.

    Then you're off on the road just like before, with the cars in exactly the same places. And get this, since when have handymen had sirens? Somehow a handyman is now one of the emergency services. You press the siren and people just move put of your way, because your an emergency handyman... there maybe a leaky tap somewhere! Quick get out of the way.

    But no, in fact your first emergency, which you sped to get to, endangering all other road user, is much worse than that. The woman's flash light doesn't work! Oh the fucking horror!

    On the one hand I have to congratulate Ubisoft on their uncompromising belief in pure undiluted capitalism, but it's starting to border on the lazy.

    Maybe Ubi-soft need to make up for money for the hype from Assassin's Creed? [​IMG]

    That is one crazy concept for a game. Who knows, the gameplay could actually be fun, with various touch-screen mini-games where you fix stuff. But you have to wonder at who would consider buying something like that based on the presentation alone? [​IMG]

    Haha so Curley wasn't mistaken after all! [​IMG]
    PS. I won't be surprised if Ubisoft's staff are made up of 3 year olds. The boxart says "3+". [​IMG]
