    I'd be interested if it was a studio that had made something I like, this will probably be a cheap abortion to soak up the cash from a superb tv show.

    Has there ever been a good TV tie-in game?

    If the game is anywhere near as good as the TV show it'll be good.
    I just can't imagine what the format would be?

    All the things that make the TV show great are things that I can't imagine being easily transferrable to a game. :(

    In theory could be good.
    In practice... Dexter doesn't actually kill that many people.

    Dexter doesn't just go after serial killers, he goes after anyone who has escaped the justice system.

    QFT. I agree about the whole "Mark Ecko" game studios point, but with any luck they'll put Getting Up behind them and develop a game that's in character with the TV show - I for one can see it failing, but most likely, I'll wait til its down to a tenner or something and then pick it up and give it a go. Or wait for Bit to review it first! :D

    I just hope they get the balance of humour, seriousness, and disturbed right. With the odd echo (no pun intended there folks, honest!) back to "The Rules Of Harry".

    Could be good, most likely will have sucky elements most of the way through.

    I could see this working as a sort of hitman clone.

    I really liked the TV show but I think it will be difficult to make into a game. I think it could be done, and it could be very fun, but it would require a lot of originality and great design and production to pull it off without it turning into a cheap, generic and boring spin off.

    TV series was great, book series was terrible... got to be a first!

    I wonder if the game will be even worse...

    Why would you go by the books when the game is based on the show and the show has strayed so far away from the books which for arguably the first time in history is a good thing.
