Lets start this out fast, I will give you pros, and cons, then if you still care, my opinion.
Pros: The game graphics are amazing, when he walks his dreads sway, and they captured his stance. The voice overs, although not Johnny Depp, you would never know. The game play isn't overly hard, and fairly realistic, you can kill an enemy with a single hit. The way you interact with your environment is cool, lot of sticking swords in things and swinging across. And the new duel challenge is lot of fun!
Cons: The replay value may suffer due to the fact that the levels are lot like running down a hallway, (not lot of branching off). When on 2 people, and one is the computer, the computer takes lot of damage and tends to get you in more trouble then they are worth. Other than that I dont have lot of complaints.
I believe this to be a great game, as a one or two times through kinda thing, i couldn't see it as a game i would buy just due to the fact that there isn't much to redo if you were to start over, its going to be the same thing.

Here are just the good and the bads of the game.
Pros: Nice graphics, Pretty good story line, easy achievements.
Cons: Every non-dueling sword fight is the exact same; you hit the A button three or four times and the guy spins around stunned and you slash him in the back or do a finish move. You can't do and different kind of sword combos like hitting A then holding A(Referring to Devil May Cry fighting engine). That's one major default to the fighting but the other is the Dueling, which you will find yourself doing at least once a level or so. Its almost luck really if you hit the guy or not. There is almost no strategy; except for if he blocks everything you lunge at him. You also almost always have to fight him again(like you beat him once then he runs away to a different spot and you have to fight him again). Last thing is where is the gore? obviously this was probably aimed a little to the younger side, but it gets almost boring not seeing any blood after you stab a guy in the stomach.
