Finally some inovation...

on 9/8/2008

Solid game with few minor drawbacks. The controls get some getting used to however only takes half hour or so. Camera can get a little annoying especially since you almost no control, the only thing you can do during combat is to center behind you. Would recommend this game to non-japanese rpg fans, god of war and devil may cry gammers. Read More

Could have been a GREAT game...

on 9/9/2008

A long time ago, in a world not so far away... I really, really wanted to love this game. It's beautiful, runs flawlessly, and has my favorite type of gameplay: hack 'n slash. But, what it isn't, is fun. I have been looking forward to this game for at least a year. I love the developer, Silicon Knights. I have played and finished virtually every game they have published. They are the only company that I feel competes with Bioware in the story department. The story is epic, the voice acting is great, the graphics are phenomenal. Streaming the game off the disc gives you no load times and allowed them to create environments so huge that nothing else on a console can match. Looting in the game is pretty sweet, especially past level 30. But, I think the biggest problem is the control scheme. It's innovative and cool. But it doesn't quite work. And that makes the game incredibly frustrating. When you are being swarmed by 20 or so enemies, and you can't quite pull off the attack you need you die. And you die, and you die, and you die. It gets painful trying to get through one little area and you've spent a half hour killing 5 enemies. It's not that your character can't wipe the floor with them, but you can't get your attacks and skills to fire off correctly. Another issue I have is the scaling enemies. The problem is that you need to have certain meters filled to a certain extent, but they take pretty much the same amount of time to fill, regardless of your level (and when you die, you start at zero). Because the enemies always scale to your level, you can't combo/kill them any faster. So either a) the enemies shouldn't be able to keep up with you, or b) your own abilities should work quicker as you gain levels. I'm halfway through my second time. But I'm having to work to do it. And therein lies the rub... Read More
