I hear a lot of reviews for this game from both critics and users saying this game is the best game ever and how it is perfect. This game is not perfect. It is really good. Definitely one of the best, but not perfect. The campaign is around 15 hours and I did enjoy it all the way through.
My one problem with this game is the storyline makes you want to keep going. You will want to play those 15 hours straight. When you do though realize how repetitive the actual gameplay is. Yes, the bow is fun to use, and sneaking around is fun, and I don't know if I'm the only one who noticed this but it's basically the same throughout the entire game. There really isn't a lot of variation in its core gameplay that makes it great.
I will say it looks great. It is a great looking, sounding, and fun game. I loved playing this game, but even I could see that there would need to be more variation to make me play it through again.

I will first say that I enjoyed this game more than I thought I would based on my experiences with Uncharted. This is a leagues ahead of Uncharted in every way. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement. I felt that too many of the encounters and situations were similar and it grew fairly tiresome after the umpteenth time you're stuck in a building or a small area and have to kill a bunch of people to get out, etc. In other words, some more varied encounters, and enemies would help. The story was pretty good, not amazing but good. The ending was really good. I would like to see more choices that affect the story. I don't mean choices like in Infamous: Second Son either where the whole game pauses and you get to decide, but more organically. I would've liked to have more exploration as well.

This is the kind of game the true story driven gamer seeks out. I purchased the game some time ago played it once and life happened so, then I decided to make time recently to get into it figuring I would have it tackled within a couple of hours.
Well, I have about 20 hrs of game play in and I'm still at it. Now mind you I'm the type of gamer that has to find every little thing and complete every section as thoroughly as possible.
But, having said that if you like scary creatures, great graphics, challenging fight episodes and love a deep storyline, this game is for you.
IT'S A KEEPER!!!!
