After years of hearing about this game I was so excited that a developer was taking the time to get it right. And then I played it. Take parts from great games, throw in blender, and waa-la, an unbalanced and terribly paced mess! Graphics ok, voice acting ok, story ok, and if you like hard puzzles there are a couple where you go through a portal, run to a large rock in the middle of nothing, and to unlock a door in the real world, YOU PUSH THE ROCK! WOW exciting I know. The only thing that saves this game is the combat! Its not perfect either but a least its something that feels like they took more then 10 minutes to make. Maybe you will like pushing rocks, wondering around a lifeless city and killing a mob then running what feels like a mile to the next mob. Oh and don't get me started on the 30 second scene every time you die THAT YOU CANT SKIP. The reviews that I read with a score of 8 or higher feel like people trying to justify paying 50-80 dollars for another over hyped let down.

THIS game is easily a 9.0 after much debating on whether to get the game or not i finally got it and i can easily say its one of the best RPGs ive played that were good i have yet to test out the online coop but for people that are not sure if you are going to get this game for any reason let it be the combat best combat system ive seen in a very long time why waste ur time button mashing when every sick move boulder has is at your disposal with a flick of your thumb I recommend this game to any one who wants to feel like a god the entire game the one thing that bothered me and very little i might add was the valkayre thing aprox 15 secs death scene its better than looking at a loading time or losing your exp u gained through hard work storyline is awesome visuals are beautiful if any one wants to play wit me online GT Sifer xNYCx
