    I really love this game. I was really impressed with how the story seemed to develop organically and dramatically, even though I was uncovering it in an arbitrary order. People talk about it as if the...

    Considering it ran at about 5 fps on the computer I had at the time, I played quite a lot of the Die by the Sword demo. That was a slightly less silly version of this. You could still beat monsters ab...

    The circle game had novelty at first, but after maybe twenty minutes it was incredibly tedious. Not a fan of that segment.I have no opinion regarding God Hand.
