I feel almost bad giving this game an 8. I loved the gameplay, story, graphics were top notch and the controls nailed it. My beef = Boss's are very easy and you dont really fight them its a button timing fight and is easy and frustrating at the same time. You'll see. My other beef was the ending was abrupt and it left me feeling like all hype and no reward...... there is plenty to do around the island even though its all the same kinda thing. I am glad I played it and I do recommend this game to any level of gamer.
