I do see some of the bad things that others have said, but looking past the few glitches and somewhat ps2 graphics the game play was amazing!!! It is fast paced and keeps you moving... I did not want to quit playing. If you like HUGE enemies and constant battle this game is good for you. The other reviews were correct about getting past the first half hour... it is kind of lame for the first part and really glitchy but as the game went on the graphics improved and gameplay was less irritating.

im not someone who listens to other peoples comments so i rented this game the story seems really good the graphics aren't all that great but what got me was how horrible the controls were its hard to aim and run around the best way i can explain is its really choppy i got to the third level and had enough so i sent it back
I was confused when I read the other reviews for this game, but now after playing it, I see that all the reviews are correct. Those of you who hated it all quit after a half hour. You shouldn've really kept going.
Did two different development teams work on this game? At the beginning, the graphics look like high end PS2. The monsters are dump, weapons are dumb. After meeting up with Vivian, the graphics become PS3 quality. The monsters are much better, except for those stupid werewolves that still hang around. You get the shotgun. And the game becomes very intense with several "gotcha" moments.
The game does continue to be extremely linear and events are heavily scripted. (Think Disneyland ride.) But with the major improvement in game atmosphere, you don't really notice it anymore.
I'm hoping for a sequel (by the 2nd development team) and hopefully they'll learn how to open up the enviroments by then.
