Game was overall a good play. I've always been a fan of games that peak on the strange/out there mentality and this one hit that tone for me perfectly. It was creepy without going too far at any point (for age appropriate of course). I love a good combo style attack style but on the same note I wish there was a combo stacker that keeps track of your kills as many other combo games have.
It had a good lengthy story line that actually took me around 12 hrs of play (goofing off and searching for all memories/bottles/etc included =P). It was a tad annoying realizing this was a sequel after the first couple of minutes of play as you find yourself in a whirlwind of who did what and why in the first game throughout the entire campaign.
All in all great game to rent but I do recommend, Get The Prequel First!!

Not having played the first, or even knowing this game existed until I saw it on here, I was not expecting much. But having played a decent amount of it, I will say its actually quite good. The beginning is a little slow, even that being so the design of the game should be enough to make you want to continue playing(especially in regards to the opening cut scene). Combat feels good and smooth, though I would argue that it is one of the weaker areas of the game. The enemies look like effort was put into their design, and each requires their own set of tactics to defeat. You'll find yourself using all the weapons in a good number of the fights you find yourself in. What I wasn't expecting was the large amount of platforming that you do in the game. I normally don't like platforming in games because I'm abysmal at it, but I enjoyed it more than the combat so far. It isn't too strenuous and If I can do it, I'm sure most people won't find it to bad. The dialogue is good and the voice acting adds to it. Everyone sounds like they're insane, which is expected but well done. Graphics aren't bad, I'm sure it would look better if I'd played it on my pc. There is some ugly textures that will also pop in from time to time, but I am able to over look this because, as I've already stated, the game's character and environment design is really cool looking. It also has some of the best hair physics I've seen on a console.
Ignore the non-user review on this one, its a good game worthy of your time and most certainly better than a 6.5.
