    Hmm, when I read the title I thought this would be like a game based on Goethes poem! Thank God its not [​IMG] That masterpiece should stay untouched!

    The game looks similar to Ghostbusters. Not my type of game tbh but I haven`t tried it personally...

    I'm really interested to know what kind of WiFi this game could have to offer. There doesn't seem to be any info on this game at all.

    I gave it a go.....seems like a decent enough game. Nice graphics and smooth gameplay with quite a bit of tutorial going on as you play. Controls using a combination of dpad, buttons and some touchscreen use to change and/or upgrade your spells. Looks very playable to me.

    While I agree that movie games tend to suck, it's obtuse to summarily dismiss them as bad without even trying them. This one does not seem like shovelware at all. It actually seems like at least some effort was put into it. I'd say it's at least worth a look.

    My movie of the year i hope, watching it when it comes to the cinemas in my country.

    been waiting on the game for awhile now, i hope it's decently good, at worst. =)

    Edit: Right... so how do i pick up a medkit? it doesn't tell me how, and none of the buttons seems to work.

    What's the timeframe to forge the first merlinean spell? Seems to be less then 2 seconds, which is impossible? Or maybe i do the minigame wrong. :S

    You've never heard of Headstrong Games? They made House of the Dead: Overkill and Battalion Wars 2.

    This looks decent, I thought it would be some crappy shovelware, but I must say, it kinda stands out. [​IMG]

    Just walk over the pick-ups to collect them. That's funny, I've got way more time than that. Could your copy of the game be faulty or something?
