I've played pretty much all the big titles of 2011 so I decided to go into my backlog. I chose a title that I actually received last Christmas in Lords of Shadow. Replaying the beginning which I previously played in the demo, I was beginning to question my decision. The first few chapters are just okay. Your abilities are quite limited and you have very little health. I should note I decided to start on Hard mode which had me screaming at my TV for the first few chapters due to constant deaths. But damn is this game great once you get into the meat of the game. I'm afraid a lot of people started this game and gave it up before it hit it's stride. I've heard the ending is utterly fantastic so I'm looking forward to it.
I'm not sure it sold too well which is depressing. The visuals and art are stunning at points, and it really feels like people poured their heart and soul into making this a great game.
Anyone else played this lately?
