Not even the best rental
I just rented this game and a hour or two into it and already I am considering taking it back. At first the graphics looked good and smack-talking mask was interesting but I started to tire of the constant talking after a bit. Being told to kill, kill, kill and f everything up got hard to listen to after awhile. This is pretty much based on the God of War play style and the button mashing of x got boring quick. Also some of the special moves that you do on dazed enemies can't even be pulled off sometimes since you are in mid combo and can't stop. Also the stuttering of gameplay and loading screens between deaths was a little to long for my taste. I admit this might be solved by ripping it to the hd but I don't think I am keeping it that long. Maybe I would be more in the mood if this came out around October and with Halloween in full swing but right now it is a maybe rental if nothing else interests you or a cheap bargin bin pick up. Also what was the deal with the collecting pieces of a picture of your unclothed girlfriend? Creepy.
