My copy of the game arrived last Wednesday and I finally got to play it a little over the weekend. Here are my thoughts about the issues raised.
1.) The Label - It's functional and serves its purpose. Not a deal breaker. Something for Piko to fix on future releases.
2.) The Manual - It starts out fine but then about half way thru comes the spelling mistakes and words running together. Not a deal breaker either but an easy fix especially with Spell Check. My manual had no physical damage to it.
3.) High Score Screen - This is a disappointment as this problem should have been discovered during testing and fixed prior to release. It's not like the program crashes if you do something unusual. Since the game does not have a save feature, this error is more annoying than anything else. If an error can be easily discovered by consumers, the company's play testers should have found it. I do commend Piko for addressing the problem and accepting responsibility for it. Their offer of a partial refund and coupon is more than fair. Hopefully going forward they will take a little more time and pay attention to the small details.
My biggest disappointment has nothing to do with the game. It was the fact that the post office delayed delivery by almost a week without any explanation.
I don't believe any of these issues should stop someone from ordering the game. I found the game to be fun and if you want Switch Blade on the Jaguar here is your opportunity.
I look forward to future Jaguar releases from Piko.
