Cool story, but the swordplay is clumsy and extremely frustrating, especially when fighting multiple, larger, armored enemies whose attack radius cover large areas. And then when I just want to lower the difficulty to get by and enjoy the rest of the game in leisure, there is no option, so I had to start all over. Forget this. Why is it that hack and slash games have some of the worst gameplay mechanics?

This is one solid game. The storyline is compelling enough that you find yourself playing just to find out more. Let's face it, War is awesome (the character, not actual war). Silliness aside...
The game embodies what a game should be. Good story, enemies that scale up as you do, and mostly solid gameplay. The puzzles are challenging yet not impossible and also get increasingly more difficult as you progress (as they should). It takes all of these elements working together to make an excellent game. While some of the puzzles can be excruciatingly frustrating, it doesn't take away from the overall fun and solving the most difficult puzzle is a reward in itself (if you do it without looking up the answers... it's more fun that way).
There are few moments that get a little repetitive. Combos are more of an XXAX or XXX(Hold)X, etc. Some of the enemies can get a little repetitive as well. But the minor flaws are easily overlooked since the rest of the game is put together so well.
It's longer than I expected but that made it even better. More time with the characters and for the story to evolve. Don't pass this game up. It's worth every minute!
