CGRundertow QUIET, PLEASE! for Xbox 360 Video Game Review

I’m not sure why, but for some reason, it’s become the community consensus that the longer a game is, the better. When in doubt, add more crap. And if it takes 30 hours to finish, you better make it fifty. Let me proudly state that, for those of us with balance in our lives, that approach sucks.
