When you first put this game into your console, you will be greeted by a lovely, crisp looking cinematic. You will think that this game has potential, and the storyline pushes this, with it being based around eliminating demons from the land and restoring serenity. The fighting isnt bad either: you will often have to face demons that spawn through the ground, and these boss-like fights are really entertaining. However, this is only a 12+ so there is no blood or death: they just get sucked into the ground. With the presentation aside, im afraid this game is drop dead awful, and heres why:
The game is based around you collecting light orbs around maps, Sounds fine, but there are litterally hundreds, and honestly that is all you do except throw you controller on the floor with frustration as you cant find the last 10 or so. Its like a puzzle that cant be solved: you just jump around, climp, slide and fall along a landscape trying to find these stupid orbs. It is so very dull. After about 20 minutes, you will be wondering whats the point. Next, there are so many boring cut scenes of the 2 protagonist talking about things you really dont have much clue about. You even get an achievement for having talked to the NPC for a given amount of times. Honestly, being spawn killed on C.o.D. is funner...
Next comes the actual map: you will open it up and see areas that are covered by evil darkness and ones that are not, and have been made pure. Okay, fair enough, sounds cool. But the only way to redeem the darkened places is by COLLECTING THE ORBS. Why? Why cant we just go to the place and fight some demon to death? It is so repetative and you will just feel like hitting the off button.
All in all, this game is a major disappointment and I do not recommend it to anyone.
