It's actually okay. Hard to tell with the difficulty. I find it actually a bit harder than part 6 but less unfair. There are obviously some mean trial&error passages, but they are quite rare.

As for the screen size: After a short time you get used to it. The graphics are actually a bit downscaled. So a bit tinier sprites but nice to look at it.

How much you pay for it? This gen titles are finally coming down in price and are worth a gamble on.

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Simpsons Road Rage
Sonic Adventure DX
All on Gamecube, 3 quid from charity shop. Only wanted Sonic Adventure, but couldn't resist expanding the collection.

Striker, boxed, Snes for 4 quid in a posh bristol charity shop.
My first ever boxed game for the SNES. Remember playing it, briefly, when it came out and loving it, so i was quite chuffed. Seemed reasonable deal too.

4 for £20 in GameStation:
Thief: Deadly Shadows (XBox)
Transformers (PS2 - the old pre-movie game)
Geist (GC)
Chronicles of Riddick (X-Box)

Mostly because I saw Geist and had heard it hyped up recently and always wanted Thief.
