Excellent

Not for everyone

I had just gotten my new HDTV with HDMI cable and a fresh new PS3. School just let out so I was ready to lay back relax and kick it. Unfortunately this game game didn't provide the "kick" I was looking for.

Though this game is amazing visually (espically on the ps3) it is not my cup of tea. The load times are blazing fast, and things don't "pop" up like in the 360 version. Still I'm not a big fan of RPG and I don't have time to commit myself to hours of game play on one single game. Understand that I was playing Pokémon Diamond and FFXII at the same time of this rental.

Now if there was a software drought and I needed to find a game to occupy my time for two weeks or three weeks I would get this game. But if you are just looking for a quick play for 5-10 days Don't get it yet. Though it was a fun game with a lot of depth in it, I just found that the lack of acheivements and online features made it feel blah. The NPC are the most intelligent I ever seen, you could follow them all day if you wanted, but I rather talk to humans then computers all day. Still a great game though.

im not going to say this becuase i think ps3 is better than any other console, but its the truth. the playstation3 version runs smoother and has better graphics than the 360 version too and if you like runescape or something like that, this is a perfect game for you ( note that this game is for everyone and everyone will love it but mostly runescape lovers will like it, i think)

like i said the map is vary massive and large which can be a bad thing because it takes like a whole hour to get from one side of the map to the other side and you got to do a lota traveling so well lets just say get the pop tarts ready.
you get a good weapon selection so its fun, buts its only fun when you really doing stuff.
the game super sucks when you gota lota traveling to do.
