The graphics are very good, but the gameplay is boring. The moves/gameplay you learn in the 1st hour are the same moves you use for the rest of the game. There is no variation or growth, you can buy a few combos, that's it. It's a fairly long game, but only because you spend a lot of time lost running around trying to figure out what the heck you are supposed to do. It is a button masher with a pretty bad story line.

I'm a little confused as to the number of reviews that are ranking this game a 9+. Visually this game is an absolute playground, yes. The textures, lighting, atmosphere, and immersion experience are brilliant.

Game play, however, is downright boring. All of your slick demon-killing combinations basically consist of holding the right bumper, occasionally flicking the left analog, and then bashing the triangle button. There's absolutely no reason for a button-masher to get ratings this high with all the other excellent titles that are in the market.

This title is banking on name recognition alone, and name recognition isn't enough to make it a good game.

Sad to say... of the hundreds of games I've played in the last 5 years, this is near (if not at) the bottom.

Starts out with WAY too many cut scenes (it's a game, not a movie) and Way too easy. The fighting is repetitive and boring. The in-game upgrades befuddled and unnecessary. The load times reminiscent of an old Amiga and the enemy's all clones.

Then you get to a "Puzzle" that has no apparent thought needed, but a decent camera angle that's nowhere to be had.
Add to it the pitiful locked cameras that switch the direction your traveling at many points, sending you back out the door you just came in.

Really pathetic...
