Technical disaster.By DeadnBuried (19 reviews) from Cornwall , 04 Aug 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I've played a lot of games in my time, but I've never once seen a port this bad before. This game's been on the PC for a while now, and it sounds like it was a pretty good game on the PC, but unfortunately it was then shipped out to a different developer to handle this console port, and to say that botched it would be a massive understatement.
Five minutes into the game I was already prepared to send it back; objects would appear sharply when real close, it constantly drops frames and stutters, it cuts audio off mid-flow, it's generally pretty ugly to look at, it's the worst port I've perhaps ever seen and for me at least, it made the game virtually unplayable. I'm sure it's a pretty cool game on the PC, but I certainly wouldn't waste my time with the console versions.

BAD ON EVERY SINGLE LEVEL!By a customer , 25 Mar 2013So bad! Everything about this is just wrong. Awful graphics, awful framerate, awful combat, awful voice acting, awful story. I can't find ONE single positive thing it's THAT bad. If I could give it minus stars I would!

One of the Best RPGs for ProsBy OldSnake (2 reviews) , 13 Feb 2013Epic game, Skill is required, isnt too hard so its perfect and its never too easy, isnt as glitchy as the 1st game with items and unable to do quests, i didnt have any problems on this game :D i completed it on PC on low graphics and im tempted to complete it on Xbox360 for the points and fun again.
Beyond Tragic.....By a customer , 09 Feb 2013I'll keep it short, I wish I didn't get any achievements, from this 'game' its tarnished my Gamertag cause you can not delete games from your played history once achievement(s) have been earned. I would willingly give up that 10GS.
Seriously, rent pong, you'd be far more satisfiedBy Givitup (3 reviews) from Notts , 27 Jan 2013This game is one of the poorest ports i have seen, if you have a pc play it on that do not attempt to play it on the consoles you will only end up ripping your hair out in large clumps. It looks nice the jungle looks nice etc but the controls are terrible the camera is terrible and the combat is woefull. Its merely a case of tapping x repeatedly to hit the enemy with the same old attacks, parry barely parrys, you'll find yourself dead to most enemies and if you aint a elder scrolls player you more than likely wont be used to having to make many saves which means you'll be punished on death by having to grind back through boring fights and boring areas.
Good idea if it didn't have the insects nesting!By TheSpiderman (19 reviews) , 07 Jan 2013Don't bother unless you like bugged up games with many problems and glitches. I thought the idea was great, and the story would probably be great. However, I stopped after a couple hours and I'm finally sending it back today. I wish I started it sooner so I could have sent it back before now. It has some major BUGS crawling around it. This game should NOT have been released like this. The characters skip like a scratched up CD, and in some spots they're in the way of everything else on screen while talking. The camera angling is useless even though you can turn it with R3-stick. Though, its the lip-sync that got to me, it was terrible. I've noticed with a lot of modern day video games that they just don't try as hard or the game has never been Alpha'd let alone Beta'd. Its like they're testing them out on us after we buy them and fix the problems with online updates. I just have to wonder where this one's update-fix is? The game regulation departments should make some new rules for a lot of these game developers to make sure games are compete and not bugged before release. If the film studios brought out the Matrix movies etc., with glitches in the CG like this game people would demand their money back and get it, but with a game, we're stuck! PS2 never had such incompetence!
