    This has the potential to be a good movie, as I think the story is good even if it is not fleshed out very well in the game. But the premise is very good.

    I guess we will have to take a watch and wait approach.

    Heh, I was just playing this tonight and was thinking how cinematic the game is. Looks like someone agrees with me. I'm mildly interested, but I know how video game adaptions go.

    Exactly, still waiting for a good video game based movie. Silent Hill came close, except for the bright light info dump sequence.

    I enjoyed the game well enough but the background material and story weren't exactly original or particularly compelling. And at least one major idea in the game is so blatently ripped from Pitch Black that I'm surprised there wasn't a lawsuit.
