Maybe this game is really amazing, but I didn't want to wait to find out. Load times right from the start of 5+ minutes between scenes, and even after installing to the HDD it still took a long time.
When I finally got into the game, I was very disappointed at the gameplay graphics--pretty good I thought for the movies, but the gameplay graphics were just bad. I'm not sure what all the loading was for, but it certainly couldn't have been the graphics.
Also caused my system to freeze, and that was the end for me.

I got this game recently and I got pretty into it at first. I mean the graphics are pretty good I don't know what everyone else is seeing, and the controls are simple and it is very easy to throw in some devastating combos with the help of your sidekick witch. The storyline is actually pretty great don't listen to people who say it isnt . But there were some major flaws that I had to endure with extreme patience such as when heinrich becomes immobalized you have to button mash the x button a million times before he becomes whole again. Now I understand they tried using this as a challenge because while you are immoblized your sidekick decides to still attack and if she's dies you start over, there are ways to get around this button mash and that is to have gretchen give up more than half of her health just to revive, or you can keep using her magic to knock enemys back while trying to break your x button. The other pain is the boss battles they have so much health which isn't a problem because they are easy battles but the problem happens when you get there health all the way down and you mess up on the button your suppose to push during the cutscene of trying to finish the boss off and if you mess up the boss recovers 2 to 3 bars of health back. If they changed up the battles alittle this game would have been a great one.
