The achievements look a bit challenging.

It's either going to be a really rough game, or way easier then I would expect.

Beat the whole game without dying in one sitting makes me curious.

These achievements are ridiculous. I just played the trial and died twice. The character moves way too slow and the controls are unresponsive. Good luck getting 200 on this one people.

I agree... and why am I required to hold X to run when there is never a time when I'm not running? I feel sluggish even when running though... like there is a second where the game has to double take what control I just pressed.

I would say less than a handful of people in the world will ever get 200GS on this after buying it (which I now regret) think its going to get poor word of mouth & bad reivews due to how hard & unforgiving it is.

If your going to make a hard game at least give an easier option in the menu with more checkpoints this is such a shame its so good looking & the atmosphere is incredible & utterly stunning in places but the level of difficulty is beyond ridiculous. 2nd level alone will take most people an hour just to figure out what to do the difficulty goes from easy to impossible.

Huge letdown for me I have now removed from my scorecard as I had 0GS cannot see me ever returning to it unless they produce a serious balance issue patch. Whoever did the QA testing deserves to be fired there is no way on earth this game could ever be completed by most players let alone not dying!

I finally completed this after about 7 hours of raging and very nearly throwing my controller at the TV numerous times. The last two levels are definitely easier than the previous sections but some of this game is ridiculously hard due to the pixel perfect jumps required and the clunky controls. I have no idea how anyone is going to complete it in one life because I swear some of the sections in the game were luck.

Respect as this controls/pixel perfect aspects made me rage quit for now its ridiculous how they messed the game up by not paying more attention to the most basic controls/timing/colission detection.

Should have been like Limbo 10GS for beating the game without dying once not 90GS thats stupid & will hurt sales badly. Who wants to grind the achievements on this for hours!!
