When this game came out it was one of the games that led me to buy a PS3. I read the review over and over.
Now I bought this game and i ca only say that I'm impressed and inlove by it.
The graphics are beautiful, the game uses Unreal Engine so you the engine its good. The gameplay it's good dispite the negative comments about that. It has its flaws like the camera that sometimes fixes to unwanted angles, the "invisible walls" that makes imposible to reach some places YOU know Monkey can.xD
storyline is kind a cliche but it works and in the end it's a story you will like. The voice acting and characters movements and acting is all REAL SMOTH and GREAT!!! you will "fall inlove" with the acting.
the game has lots of platforming so old-times SEGA and Sonic fans will like it...D
Lots of action but not like GoW because you will hve to think sometimes instead of jumping with the stick bashing heads... But it's rewarding making a strategy to survive.
You play has Monky, the wreker, but you also can commnd Trip, the lady in danger that sticks an exploding tyara in your head in order to get your help since you die if you dont obey her...xD
now for the bad news... Its REALLY SHORT.. Only like 7hours. if you want all trophyes the time triples because you get a trophye to finish the game in easy, normal and hard...
has some bugs, like in the blocking tutorial the game freezes with the message of how to block and made me exit the game. Bosses that crash into walls and keep running in front of wall even if you hit them over and over...
Some miss interpretaton of your location relative to the platform you are and where you wan't to jump because you will be many times trying to jump to a platform and instead you will rool...lool
And to finish, the framerate in the PS3 (don't know in the 360) is low when the environments are heavy, but it's a mather of getting used to it.
Resuming, it's a MUST BUY for gamers that wan't a game with good story, beautifull graphics, action and platforming and most of all... FUN...
Good gaming everyone!!!
