Blacklight: Tango Down has adverts?

This ars review of Blacklight: Tango Down is quite scathing. What caught my attention though was this paragraph:

Also note that the game also uses the Massive network to deliver advertising to the game, which means every billboard and poster is advertising a real-world product. The game has a futuristic aesthetic, and the ads stick out in an uncomfortable way. If blatant advertising is a turn-off, this is not your game.

No other review mentioned the adverts so maybe they didn’t turn them on until recently. I didn’t see them in any Youtube footage of the game either. Anyone else noticed the adverts?

The game has been out for a little while now. That initial “something new” glow has to have worn off by now. Is it worth the purchase price?

Battlefield 1943

I own a few digital downloads. Trials HD, Splosion Man and Battlefield 1943. Of the three I haven’t played Bf1943 that much, probably because I have MW2 to keep me busy, and I can play Trials and Splosion Man when my son is around. (Ask him about Splosion Man, he loves watching that!)

Above is a gameplay video by NextGenTactics. It’s from last July. I really should try to play more it before Bad Company 2 comes out!
