Perfect

Games Do Not Get Much Better Than This

From start to finish this game is quite near to perfect, which is reserved for a very small elite group. This game is a member of that group. The game keeps you intrigued and interested the WHOLE game, which is often hard to find. The graphics are great, not awesome, but this is understandable consider the long length of the game. The best part of the game is the story. The story is very original with excellent ending. The control of each character is perfect.

You do not need to love Chinese culture or the Knights of the Old Republic atmosphere to truly have a blast with this game.

Excellent

30 Hours of Solitary Confinement

I am typically into Racing and FPS games especially on Xbox Live, but this game almost ruined my marriage. It is very mystical. You are the person you want to be, Master Chief will always be tough and direct, but you can be a kind savior or a hard (only the strong survive) savior. I like that the game is semi linear so you don't get lost but you are free to make your own journey to self fulfillment. I wish there were more side quests though or you could replay game with all the power ups you acquired, That would have made the game a 10. As for the 25 hours of main quest, that's enough, any more and my wife and kids would have left me (I'm sure I wouldn't have noticed until I finished the game though).
