This game screams diablo II. You collect equipment, runes and charms that give you bonuses. The graphics are amazing and feel epic. I haven't finished the story yet and I'm a little confused on some parts of it but apparently it comes together in some way at the end. Only a few complaints, the equipment tab is all animated and takes too long to load. It takes a second or two for each windows to open and the time you will spend going through it all, that means it will be a pain in the butt. Also, while I am used to them now, the controls are unusual, the right stick now controls your melee weapon and does not control your view. Also, while the enemies are pretty neat, but they are more or less all use the same tactics and there are not a lot of variety of enemies. As for a recommentation, I would try the x-box live demo quickly to see if you like this. You will either love it and get addicted or absolutely HATE it.
I've played the demo and i found the combat system to be easy. i played thru the entire demo and have told my friends about it and how i cannot wait for the game to come out. no its not perfect and people liked mass effect as well and although i beat that game as well i will never play it again because for 1 i know how the story ends; 2 the game and combat isnt enough for me in that game to want to play it again to see an alternate ending. if killer combat is what you're craving i would suggest ninja gaiden although the camera tends to anger me. i feel like im fighting the camera and the baddies at the same time in that game.
so never trust anyone's opinion but your own. just rent it
