Well, I could not wait and imported it last year! I got this in November and yes, I am still religiously playing it!!! I have sank hours into this game not because I have to (finished it many times) but becasue i want to. It;s just so playable!! then theres all the player vs player action as you forge the perfect character with the best combination of weapons and armour!!!
If you liked Resi 4 , monster hunter and RPG's in general, you will fall in LOVE with this game, but be warned, the game will never love you back, it will vaguely tollerate you and not try to befriend you. It will test your patience, fear and skill thresholds to the limits, you will have the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and spend hours thinking of ways to improve your skills, (even when you sleep) it will consume you. Oh and when another player invades your game and is there in front of you 1 on 1, wanting to kill you and take your body (and souls) , you will feel the adrenalin pumping through your veins!! the fight may be over in seconds or minutes, but either way you will be back for more, even though you will never really know why you are hooked on this game, you just will be. Enjoy, and be prepared to let the dust settle on ALL your other games for a very long time!! But ONLY if you are up for the challenge and are a competent gamer.
