    I really was excited about this game from what I'd read about it. Normally I rent them, but this time I didn't want to wait for Blockbuster to get this one in (since it's not a mass-appeal type game i didn't know how that'd be), so i bought it at best buy. Boy was I suprised. At how dull the game is, how backwards the controls are, and well that's about it.

    I haven't fully given up, but a word of advice -- rent it 1st.

    Fortunately, the Blockbuster close to me gets new releases (both big and small) on a relatively quick basis. I rented POW last weekend.

    The voice acting is atrocious, and either I suck, or it's pretty hard. Anywho, with Buffy and DTR now here, I don't see myself going back to it anytime soon.

    Although I may need to go off on a DTR rant pretty soon. The prison level is VERY annoying.

    The oddest thing I've noticed on POW is when the character climbs over a wall, he stands there, completely visible, for what seems like a minute before you can regain control and climb him down. In the meanwhile, the guards have likely caught on.

    A respectable idea for a game, but not at all compelling, boring and only decent graphically.

    This game is so flawed technically it is almost unplayable YET it has so many nice little touches. I can't help but think they were rushed by a deadline or something and just put the game out flawed. What a shame. I haven't played a game this technically flawed since The Mummy for the Psone.
