This game has been cited as one of the hardest games on the PS3 and that is absolutely true. Even the first level I found myself constantly dying and getting frustrated. Once the first boss has been whooped the game opens up to you and you can upgrade your character. Finishing each level is very rewarding
Graphics are awesome, scenery is bleak in places but appropriate.
It is definitely NOT a game where you can just pick it up and play it - each level requires at least 30-45 minutes to finish and there are no save points in levels which means dying takes you right to the start.
This game has infinite re-playability because every class (chosen at the start e.g. warrior, ranger, knight) is different. As well as new game + (and up to new game +++++++++ apparently).
My favorite PS3 game - why haven't you bought it already?
