I was suprised at this game. I thought it would be typical movie badsed game fare. But it has a good story, good quests and addictive collections. It is not just and easy 1000 gamerscore. I enjoyed it. But it is deffinetly a rent and not a buy for me.

WOW what a waste of time !! This game is just plain WEIRD and made by people who too rush this game out, no matter what!! It follows the movie O.K>ish I guess and the graphics are o.k. But what happened too the controls and the lack of camera use ?? Oh and a jump button would have been nice instead of trying too run fast (in a straight line) then somehow swerving off too the left or right and missing your target completely.
VERY FRUSTRATING !!
Let me try too explain a jump too as the developers say is a jump. You hit the (supposedly) button that jumps and your character kinda does a hop in the air (about a quarter of a millimeter) than likes slides. WHAT THE HECK IS THAT KINDA JUMP??
Here I try too describe a fight. You see a goblin or whatever enemy coming at you and you swing your bat, trying too hit your target, oh wait I'm near the edge or a corner and I can't see.
Last but not least the infamous non existing map. So you take stroll out in the woods, oh I need something back at the house, HOW THE HECK DO I GET THERE ?????????????
