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.
The voice acting was terrible. The incessant internal monolog was so awful that I turned the sound off. The controls are terrible and unresponsive. The story made no sense. The graphics were unpolished.
