Ouch: Now This is a Brutal Review

The Library has been gradually adding Wii, PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 games to our collection. I almost bought this game over the weekend:

After reading THIS review, I am quite glad I didn't. Yikes, that's a scathing critique. Here's the money quote from the reviewer's conclusion:

There's more, of course. Between levels, there are some impossibly dumb minigames that give you no chance to figure out what you're supposed to do before they're over. There are times when you're supposed to wave your wand, but the game can't distinguish between a wand wave and an attack, which forces you to sit there for five minutes until you do the mysterious magical motion that gets it right. Ultimately, what you need to know is this: Anubis II is one of the worst games ever created and fundamentally broken. If you play it, you can never get back the three hours you wasted on this unique brand of torture.

Okay, so how do you really feel?
