Fair

An overdone story... who would of thought.

The story engulfs this game. And not in a good way. Its as if they put the fighting system aside and focused on the story too much. I spend the better part of 70% of this game walking to my destination, and talking. I dont need alot of action in a game, but an economic system and leveling based on kills is more appropriate. Before you rent this game, bear in mind there is a leveling system. However its more based on the "deeds" you do than actual experience fighting. A good way to sum it up, you level up based on Achievements/Trophies. Which is awful. The quests in this game is more like World of Warcraft. Go here, talk to person, return to original person. Get a 'deed' done for leveling up moves. This is an interactive movie. Not a video game. Awesome story though! If you like Grecko-Roman mythology, then this will be fun. Just expect a lot of walking and talking.

Horrible

Not worth the time

I decided to rent this because of the few good reviews saying this game was a hidden gem. Man was I wrong. This game feels like a horrible god of war spin off. Graphics do not do the ps3 justice. Played the game for about and hour then it went back in the envelope and back in the mail box. Another thing I did not like is that the game has to install approx. 2.5 gigabytes of data for 5 year old graphics. So in the end save yourself the time and don't rent this let down.

I am primarily an RPG consumer, though I occasionally play other games as well. The fact is, if a game has a great story, I'm sold, so long as the graphics are not as God awful as Two Worlds. I passed this game up because of all the negative reviews that were out. Point blank, if you are even considering the idea of trying it and really enjoy a game for its ability to tell a story, get this game! I am so happy that there was a dry spell of good RPGs that forced me to go back and reconsider my biases.
