Excellent

Great game

Not much can be said than what was in the title. The game is very solid. Lots of platforming, and lot's of action. Overall it keeps your inerest. The characters could have been a little more interesting especially trip, but the story still draws you in. The ending isn't the best but it's okay.

Over all the action is pretty intense and the game manages to keep you from getting board by spacing out the platforming and the action pretty equally. I started playing it and didn't want to put it down till it was finished. Definitely worth playing!!

Better second half

Firstly, the combat system is very simplistic, with only about 4 combos, a stun and damage long range attack and a shielding system. That fact combined with the "fake" platforming aspect, the actual gameplay was interesting only in a few areas. The first six (out of 14) chapters seemed to drone on, and I was hoping the story would pull through on the second half. Luckily there were a few moments in the second half that were entertaining, as the last chapters seemed to flow much better. As for the story, I did enjoy their rendition of the old tale, though a game that survives on mostly story should try to have a cinematic longer than 1:30. So if you're playing this for the story, I'd suggest reading a synopsis and maybe finding the 20 minutes of cutscenes online, cause 9+ hours of tedious gameplay did kinda get boring at times. Though all in all it wasn't bad, but it could've been much better. Kudos to the awesome acting and well represented facial expressions :)
