I found it very fun, a good amount of different combos to keep me entertained and finishing moves and so on, not once did I get bored and I completed the game twice. Great game!

I too found this game a horrible atrocity in the gaming world. I had to force myself to play through it. Only part I liked was the little egg achievement picture, it makes me happy when I look at it. :P

I'm slowly trying to get through it but it's definitely not for everyone. I can only handle about 2 levels at a time before I want to pull my hair out. Then I take a break

Never played that but yeah, you should probably stay away from this game.

Yeah, there really isn't much to this game, both in the fights and the puzzle-solving if you could even call it that.

But, if you like a small, easily to remember ability list and a very linear path through the game so you don't have to work to hard, then you might like this game.

That's exactly what i thought of the game. I took me a week to beat it. I couldn't play straight through. Way too boring. Its bad when you can just run threw levels to beat them.

Eh? i thought King Kong was worse. Eragon was a good game based on the novel and movie Eragon, Deadrising etc.

The game was very boring and repetitive. It was a good movie, but once again the game ruined the movie's rep. This game is a MUST rent and NOT buy!

I am only 1/3 the way through this attrocious game, and if I didn't have achievement OCD, I would send it back, I think Microsoft must put some type of addictive narcotic in the little 'Achievement Unlocked' message...now it's back to beating this god-awful game

mchannon37 is absolutely right. I was playing this last night and just stone slumbered while in the middle of this battle to save the universe or wtf-ever. When I woke up, I still wasn't dead, but the compadre was suffering a little. Thanks for picking up the slack, Beor (sp?) I needed a little catnap.

Ach OCD--that's the god's honest truth.

Yeah this game is just not fun, maybe a little at the beginning but it falls fast. I'm just glad I beat it and wont have to suffer through it again, the last boss was pretty hard on hard, go figure.

Maybe i'm just weird, or maybe it's the fact i'm only up to level 8, but so far i am really quite enjoying this game!

From reading this forum i expected it was going to be really boring like King Kong or something but i have found it to be quite on the contrary.

Like i said before maybe i won't feel the same after 10 more levels So far so good though.

I find most games where you just play through the movie to be very boring, but it actually isn't that bad. Go download Luxor 2 and then you'll be VERY BORED quickly.

I was at Target and saw this game on clearance for like $8.00 so I couldn't not buy it. I'm not that far into it but it's not the worst game I've ever played; easy achievements, but I'm glad I didn't pay any more for it than I did.

After just finishing this game I have to say that I could not wait to put it in the mailbox and send it back to Gamefly. I almost cannot count the things that I hated about this game, with it's only redeeming value (in my opinion of course) being the fact that it's a relatively quick 1000 points.

To sum it all up, I think I'd rather sandpaper my sack and dip it in paint thinner before playing this game through a third time.

The level design is horrible and unimaginative. The two or three waterfalls in the game are about the only decent eye candy to be seen. The rest looks like something out a terrible Nickelodeon cartoon series. The cutscenes are worse than the regular in game graphics.

It seems like when they had a level that they wanted you to play longer they abandoned all creativity and decided to stick in a part where you couldn't advance until you killed x amount of x creature/guard which 98% of the time had you spamming precision arrow shots or throwing people off ledges.

To be perfectly honest, if I were a game developer, programmer, artist, producer...anything, and I worked on this game I'd leave it off my resume. I just can't see how anyone at the end of the day could make something like this and think to themselves that they had earned their paycheck.

If you want a quick but painful 1000 points, rent it and get it over with. If you have a gift card or some spare money burning a hole in your pocket, don't buy this game. Go buy an MS points card and get $40 worth of LIVE arcade games because there are definitely plenty of games in the marketplace that were crafted with more care and honest ingenuity than this pile of dung.

I wouldn't normally play through this game twice, it's repetitive and bored me to tears. The only thing that kept me going was achievements. I think they put subliminal messages in when you hear that "Achievement Unlocked" sound. Otherwise I would not have gotten through this game twice.

i actually am not having a problem with it. it reminds me of the old lotr games (the two towers, return of the king) a friend and i were going through it last night, and were laughing are ass off picking off people with a bow from miles away lol...

now when i go and play this single player it might be a totally different thing but with 2 people its fun, especially just laughing at thing like this one level we bowed these 2 guy is the face and they looked like that guy from hellraiser... or when you get a quick arrow off and it goes in one of the enemies throats, and they still continue fighting lol....

it was actually enjoyable.

I actually enjoyed this game, although the Ruins of Orthíad on hard gets on my nerves (which is why I don't have 1000 at the moment), but apart from that I thought it was good fun.

I just played a little bit of the game, and I don't really feel like doing it again. Not a game I would recomend.

Very boring game. I had to keep stopping to take breaks from it. I finally finished for the points. No way in hell i'd play it again.

I found it really boring. The only reason it was at my house is because my sister rented it. She got the achievements on normal, and I got them on hard. Pretty bad game overall, although it did sell a lot.
