A REAL Review of Restricted Area
 
A REAL Review of Restricted Area [ Game -> Review ]

More info on Game: Restricted Area

The folks over at Gamespy appear to have written the first intelligent review of Restricted Area that I've seen. They completely bash in the game's face.

If you read our most recent preview of Restricted Area, you know we were looking forward to the final build of this Diablo-style action-RPG set in a post-apocalyptic universe. After all, the opportunity to gun down hordes of mutants, collect cybernetic gear, and wander the wastelands should appeal to anyone who misses the classic Fallout and Fallout 2 role-playing games. So much for that. Master Creating's title is laden with bugs, pathfinding issues, poorly implemented multiplayer, and tedious quests and level design, making it one of the worst titles we've reviewed this year.

...

Restricted Area could have nicely filled the underused niche of the sci-fi action-RPG, but the bugs, boring level design, and tedious pathfinding combine to make the game a miserable chore. Sadly, the game's official online forums were taken down after being flooded with complaints, about as sad an indictment as you can get. Even if you see Restricted Area in a $10 bargain bin months from now, think twice; I didn't pay anything for my copy and I still feel ripped off.

The review accurately states many of the horrible things that went wrong with this game. You can go and read the whole thing here.
