Good

Needed a little more....

OK I just completed this game and I have to say I myself feel incomplete. From beginning to end there was just something missing.

I really liked the voice work a lot.

Pigsy was GREAT and definitely deserved to get his own addon content (which I am not purchasing), but still he was funny and enjoyable.

I liked the plat forming yes its simple and idiot proof, but the way it was implemented was smooth. There were other things to annoy you....

The cons

Sometimes the voice audio didn't match up with the video so you have that old school kung fu movie dubbing look.

Where the jumping was simple the complete opposite can be said about that dam hover board. A lot of do over cause of that thing you'll see what I mean.

Those masks that you collect really serve no purpose EVER! Unless you're going for the PS3 trophies it's a waste of time. After you get about 2 you're good don’t bother searching for the rest unless you really want to see the visuals.

Many of the upgrades were really useless or unnecessary. The key ones being health, armor and the combat choices were hit or miss. Guess it's all about play style.

The ending......what can I say? It felt so quick and short and it definitely left room for a sequel......sort of. It's upsetting to me that a game with a lot of potential to be a mega hit missed its chance simply due to some better testing and maybe a more complete storyline. Maybe a future release will provide that, but unlikely.

Key words that will pop up in your head when you play

Matrix and .....smeagol? o.O

It is a fun game, just sometimes in my opinion the controls are sorta slow.

Too much jumping

Good to rent but don't buy. There's no way to fall when jumping. The controls are clunky. Camera is awful, hard to look around. Graphics are ok.
