I brought this game as time filler until Black and White is released. Little did I know that this was going to be one of the best games I have played in a very long time. The graphics are completely amazing, and the shadow and light effects have to be seen to be believed. What I find to be the most fun part of this game is when you sneak up on a snoring victim, (and yes you do here him snoring) hack is head off and see the blood pour out onto the floor hahahahahaha. With 100+ weapons and god knows how many attack combinations, this game is going to last a very long time. Note: It is "bloody" hard.
