this was the first game i completed on the ps3 so i hav'nt had much to compare it to, but i couldn't believe how good it was. after stepping up from the ps2 it was just mind blowing how great the graphics were to the ps2. don't think i will be going back which i was thinking of at 1st. not just the graphics but the sound and gameplay etc was excellent, particularly enjoyed the sixaxis parts in the game. i've heard people say the game was too hard but i flew through it until the last few stages which was v.hard but not too hard. no point being easy. just hope the other games are going to be as good!!
