a UPDATE!!! It's very bugged. The playback of cut scenes have sound issues (not to mention graphic issues). I just had some sound issues, whereas my partner he had the problem where he couldn't even pick up items! Like the copper on the ground. He tried with X and the L1 and neither one worked. People would not talk to him also. And this was at the beginning of the game! He hadn't even gotten his change of clothes yet!
So, this is very clear that it needs MORE work, and should not have been released when it was.
Currently playing the game, there are a few things that I feel I need to mention to other players before anyone else jumps headfirst into this. Minor bugging issue, for example the Tavern in Inner City Venice... yeah, I'm stuck there, can't get out. Don't know what I'm gonna do. If it comes to the point where I have to load data from many played hours ago, I'm just going to call this quits. Nothing irritates me more than that. But on a lighter note, I like that the main character is a female and I like that her armor and weapons actually change appearance as you equip new things.
First off I wanted to try the game even though I heard it was bad. I give all games the benefit of the doubt. The story started and didn't make any sense. Your a woman and people are attacking though I'm not sure why. After about 5 minutes the game froze. I reloaded it another 5 minutes of walking and it froze again. Six more freezes later I got to play for an hour before it froze.
The map was all over the place with no real way to figure out where to go. Just wander around and hope that you are going in the right place.
The fighting is little more than button mashing. Even gaining several levels I had a hard time fighting off the easy enemies. The AI is basically stupid but if they get one hit on you it takes so long to get up that they almost got you beat by the time you regain control.
