Let me start off by saying; as soon as I heard about this game I wanted to buy it. Thank God I didn't. This game requires a lot of strategy and is not easily one of those games you can just pick up, and play. This is not really a bad thing until you throw a little more dirt into the mix. The controls are spot on, and the powers are amazing if not a little creepy. I just had a hard time figuring out the storyline (besides being framed for the murder of the one you are to protect.) and how your character really fits into it. The combat. The part of the game that I was most looking forward to. It is not "bad" per say, but there is a LOT wrong with it. I remember sneaking behind an NPC to do a stealth kill only to alert him while performing the action. When you successfully get the stealth kill the game acts like it's in a hurry to get through it, and doesn't marvel in any of it's beauty. You've heard of the stealth attack where you jump from a building just to stab your victim in the head from above? Better get used to dieing a lot. Once again (repeat) The stealth aspect in this game is broke. I like stealth games. Games that do them well at least, and I am afraid to say that in my opinion this is not one of them. Regular combat is exciting, and challenging; consisting of left attack, right attack, and block. Use these commands with a challenging, and fun game and you have a winner. Here is what REALLY (and I do mean REALLY) kills the game. The !@#$ing loading screens. Did you die? Loading screen. Go 20 feet in one direction? Loading screen. Watch a cut scene? Loading screen!! If I were an unfair judge I would've given this game maybe two stars just because of the loading screen crap, but looking aat the game as a whole it is pretty fun, but the fun will pass quickly after beating the game one time.
