The game is very good. A couple of issues are the massive amounts of cut scenes. I clocked the ending to be an hour and 15 min. Motion capture is very Japanese,(you can tell by how female characters move) not really sure if thats a bad thing. Also, as complex as the story of the whole series is, you would think that the story behind the Beauty and the Beast characters would be more interesting. Instead they had put together some typical tale of childhood trauma to cause them PTSD, though it sounds more like insanity to me. Watching some of the cut scenes gives you an idea of how Japanese soaps are like. Another thing is the controls for the very last fight w/ Liquid is just stupid. For a game that tries to sell CQC, they had done very poorly on it when it comes to the last fight.
The good parts of the game is the overall gameplay. Graphics, controls(besides the final fight w/ liquid) and sound. They didn't hold anything back on multiplayer either.
Overall, playing this game is very satisfying. Well worth the buy.
First off let me explain that the game is really short but the game play is exceptional because of how exciting you can go from 3rd person to 1st. Being in stealth mode most of the time is really fun. Overall i wished the game was longer but still worth to buy.
