...but maybe half way through it started freezing up, and then it would not load past a certain point. Game Over. I looked this problem up online and it is, sadly, fairly common with this game. My PS3 chugged along HARD during the parts I was able to play.
The half that I played was really great! A moving and brutal story with well-crafted game play. Oh well. Kind of a bummer, but at least I didn't drop $60 on it and end up frustrated about that.
The 7 rating is because this problem is common and the game designers should have known there would be lock-ups.
Amazing narrative gaming experience, don't miss it

Extremely powerful character development and a strong narrative propel this title to new heights in gaming. The scavenging mechanic slows the pace unnaturally, but does manage to create that survival tenseness it strives for. Many scenes in this game will challenge you and stay with you for a long time. You owe it to yourself to play this from start to finish (which will run you about 15 hours).
