It's a lot like "God of War". That's because they hired the level designer of "God of War". They said "he's one of the best in the industry", and their goal was to beat "God of War" in that genre. (I wounder if having the God of War level designer had somthing to do with Sony getting the Divine Edition and not xbox, since God of War is a Sony exclusive.) It's definitely a hack & slash, action-adventure game. And there is a playable demo on PS3 & 360, downloadable content too.
I'm looking forward to their "Dead Space 2", said to be 2011.
This game has a great story. It also has a lot of bad fixed camera views. So bad you can't even see what is going on 33% of battle time. I got bored vary fast. It could have used some better music. The only thing I could say good about this game is the visual graphics. Errr can't take my game save to all my PS3's. PSN has a copy lock on it.
