Just have to say to the people who find this game hard, the secret is to ALWAYS block. ALWAYS ALWAYS and the game's not too bad. I have had the game for two days (played for about 7 hours) and I'm on Chapter 11....
Right now to the review. I would never of bought this game if my friend didn't tell me to. He said it was the best game on Xbox after Halo. So since there are not many good games floating about for the PS3 right now I got it. And boy was I glad.
The game is truly amazing. The graphics are quailty on both SD and HD. The in-game graphics looks sharp, and realsitic. The cutscene's look amazing as you would expect but the character models during the game really stand out. Ryu and Rachel in particular look really good. Rachel has a set pf physics for her boobs, so everytime she moves you can see them wobble lol, it is a really nice tough and makes the characters more real. Also, the game has a flawless framerate, not once have I experienced any slowdown.
The gameplay is really good. It can be frustrating at times if your not good at the game but if you remember to block your fine. The amazing thing is that the gameplay doesn't get boring or repetitive at any point, considering that all you are doing is running about and killing people with a sword or bow. The different weapons and techniques in particular for each weapon adds to the fun of the gameplay and shakes away any repetitiveness because of the sheer volume of different moves you can do.
The game sounds good as you would expect, some nice music which really gets you in the mood.
The only minor two negitive things that I can think about is that the storyline is a bit confusing at first, I am on Chapter 11 and I'm still not 100% sure of it, but that really isn't a problem because you can get the main idea of it. The second thing is that sometimes you start a new chapter and have no clue as to what you are to do, I think it was Chapter 8 or 9 or something that I started and I didn't know what I was meant to do, but after following some paths I got there.
All in all brilliant game which must be played if you own a PS3. I would say it is the best game on the console so far, and I own the likes of Motorstorm, Resistance etc.
