Regardless if you're a fan of the series already or a newcomer, you can guarentee that this game will take your fancy. I got this game for christmas and have hardly been off it.
I can understand why some people wouldn't take to it, as the graphics look childish and the plot of the game sounds rubbish when you first hear it, but when you play it it is really, really good!
Just make sure you have enough time to play on this game - it'll consume you!
Hope this helps :)
