The game is great for anyone that was a fan of the original game, but some of the side games although good at breaking up the game play can be a bit aggravating. I really enjoyed the art style and presentation, I think the game is very beautiful and whimsical in a dark theme. The enemies though are a bit uninspiring and some times difficult for the wrong reasons. but overall I enjoyed it and say its worth playing.
I really like this game at the beginning, but I didn't end up finnishing it since every level was essentially the same thing, and they're LONG!!! Being stuck in one world for over 2 hours only to go to the next and do the exact same thing over and over for the next 2 hours. I bailed about halfway through the fourth level. Solid combat system though!
