I give this game a solid 8 I really like this game the combat is awesome. You get to chain attacks together to do really cool special moves. Great graphics and gameplay rocks. You should definitely give it a shot before you decide not to play it. I have played every game there is to play on xbox 360. This game rocks.
I'm nearing the end of this game, and remembered some of the other reviews I read before this game arrived from GameFly. First thing is the I'll say for those skimming reviews, is that you CAN skip the cutscenes. Back button on the Xbox. I'm assuming it would be the Select button on PS3.
Now, on to the rest of my take on this game. I felt I should post on it's behalf. First things first, is this a great game? Probably not? Is it unbearably bad? No. I'm enjoying it for what it is. The dialogue and story, at times, can be a bit laughable. But, it doesn't take away from the gameplay, which can be pretty fun. The power upgrades and combat have kept me entertained. I'd say give it a shot, everyone has different tastes, and maybe I'm just a little more lenient than everyone else. :)
I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this game. The time rewind mechanic allows for a bunch of interesting puzzles as well as enjoyable enemy take downs. The included Outbreak mini-game Moba style, like Dota or League of Legends and is still enjoyable even if I couldn't find anyone online to play with. Don't let the low score fool you, this game is worth a play through if you even remotely enjoy action / platformers. The only things I could say against this game is sometimes animation gets a little choppy and the lip-syncing can be glaringly off at times. The way the main character draws and sheathes her swords irks me, but it doesn't effect the game in any way.
