Just got it today. I was looking forward to this becasue it is a classic IP and match that with the Wii it could be a game of the year. However there are a lot of issues; the camera is set to close to Laura making it difficult to kill bats, and bears (so you die often), the textures are to flat making it cumbersome to find your way, and it is easy (I went through several checkpoints within an hour), and when you are in the mansion you can't get out because all the doors are locked so just start the game! All in all it is a good one to rent (the controls make it better/fun); but not a buy. I was just as dissapointed as you; maybe Eidos will do another version; but maybe an exclusive and not a PS2 port!
I loved this game. The camera never seemed to get suck and the game play with the controls was fun. It is one that I might rent again. Plus, my daughter loved it given that it is one of the few games that stars a woman.
I don't know, it just seems like this title is getting old. It's like I've already played it...and I just can't get into it. The graphics are ok, the gameplay is ok, but I am just not blown away. It's nothing new... I wouldn't buy this, maybe just rent for a really cheap thrill. Game-off!
