Originality is refreshing, but if it doesn't equate to fun then the review should stand. I feel like it would have to compel you to continue to play despite it's perceived flaws. Though the premise may be original, it sounds like in this case it didn't make much of a difference since the mechanics were mediocre.

At least that's what I could gather from the review. Leave the CoGs alone.

You do this with your MAVI, a portable scanning/hacking tool. Speaking of hacking, this is probably the best hacking minigame I’ve had to play in recent memory; you have to match wavelengths using the thumb sticks. It’s a good way to keep you involved without it being annoying.
Was hacking like Batman: Arkham Asylum or was it more complex?

-1 CoG for calling it a MAVI instead of a NAVI. I can't be the only one who thought it.

XBLA games go on sale all the time. The discounts aren't as deep as Steam, but sales do happen. You just have to be a Gold Member to take advantage. In fact, this week's sale is Toy Soldiers for 33% off.

I did do a double take. Then suddenly I was overcome with a voice inside my head beckoning me to "listen" and fell into fetal position cradling what was left of my sanity.

I meant NAVI as in most Anime being a navigational computer of sorts. That's what Zelda had coined it from.

The game has achievements. ED would give it 5 COGs for that alone.

I hated that annoying fairy. I'll never finish OoT because of it.

I played the demo tonight. Totally NO SALE. Ugh. It felt like a subpar budget game from the get-go, or worse. Nothing made me want to buy it. Thank God for demos.
