The game is beautiful. It plays very well. The story for Lora is stellar. This is the closest you get to an uncharted title on Xbox 360! That said, the inclusion of multiplayer seems forced and unfinished. This is the reason it does not perfect score. If multi layer was removed it would be a 10,
I'm blown away by this game. The graphics are superb (best I've seen on 360), gameplay is perfect (upgrades everywhere, easy learning curve, don't have to go out of your way to do well), and the storyline is good enough. If anything, you'll laugh a bit at the storyline, but the voice acting is decent. This game is all about gameplay. You'll have a blast running around. It's about 65% puzzles 35% combat. The combat system is fine, has a few problems, but easy to pick up.
The good reviews are right. This is a well designed video game, hands down. 9/10. I give it negative points because the story was pretty simple and offered no twists/surprises really.
