This game is extremely frustrating. A chore to play. I wouldn't mind the weak combat and annoying camera so much if this game weren't so repetitive. There are some fun parts that save the game from bring awful. IGN's review where they gave it a 3/10 may have been a little harsh as some gameplay elements are actually really well done. Using your body parts as a grenade and using them to solve puzzles for example. The visuals and sound are both good. Those good parts are far out weighted by the annoying, frustrating parts though. I definitely can't recommend a purchase of this game under any circumstances, but if you're a huge fan of third-person shooters give it a rental. I doubt you'll have the patiences to make it all the way through this game though.
The combat is really what bought this otherwise good game down for me. And in an action game, that's unforgivable. This game is the worst game I've played in 2012 so far. Ninja Gaiden 3 wasn't nearly this bad despite it getting the same score from IGN and I have yet to play RE:ORC. Its really a shame; I wanted to like this game because of the novelty of it.
