    A friend of mine has already finished this, and he said he had less 5 hours worth of actual game play.

    It really doesn't sound like a great game.

    I do agree about the camera angles but I still love the game. Love it so much I am going to leave it for a little while as I don't want to be done with it so quickly.

    The last game i did that with was Dead space 2 (And i still haven't finished it after owning it for over a year!) :laugh: :rotfl:

    Camera angles can be a pain but its a great game. Using the blade is lots of fun and the whole game is just fast paced with great combat, silly story and ott bosses.

    One of my mates has finished it and his total gametime was just over 9 hours. Yes there probably is around 4-5 hours of actual gameplay but if I'm being honest i don't mind that one bit. I'd rather have an action packed 9 hours total time then a 20 hour + fest that can drag on.

    I'm pretty disappointed to be honest.

    I was really looking forward to this but at times it is painful to play, the camera ruins things, you feel great you're mowing down enemies and then the camera decides to go into business for itself and your looking at a wall why 3 guys hammer you.

    Couple that with the really bland environments (which I know are like that so it can stay at 60FPS) and for me it's a disappointment, not a terrible game, but certainly not a great game IMO.

    I can honestly say I've rarely had any camera issues so far and I'm nearly at the end of the game. I personally love it but each to their own. :)

    Same here. The only time I had to really adjust my camera angles was in the boss battle with mistral.

    Guilty admission, I spend way too much time chopping, slicing and dicing trees and cars than paying the main story :)

    That and restarting most battles to ensure I get at least an S or an A battle rating.

    Had anyone bought the grey fox blade yet? Is it any good?

    Lol i often stand there just slashing random things. I've not restarted any battles yet but will be playing through the game again on hard once I've finished it. Last night i beat monsoon and thought that was a great battle.

    Some of the codec conversations are quite funny and being a cut scene whore the game certainly delivers in this respect. Not bought that blade yet.

    I actually meant Monsoon. Wonder why Mistral got stuck in my head. That was a remarkable boss fight. As soon as I was done with him, I saved, shut down and haven't been back since.
    I should be back on tomorrow to try out his Sai blades in combat. But I really do love mistrals arms.

    I've heard the same thing from others, I don't know if it's how I play or what but for some reason that camera doesn't want to play nice with me, and it is so annoying especially when I want to like the game so much.

    Thats a shame if it's spoiling the game for you. Nothing you can do about that I guess. My mate had the same issues with ninja Gaiden and he wanted to like that game a lot as well.

    Im currently having a bit of a mare on the final boss. I know exactly how to beat him but keep rushing too much and being greedy trying to hit him too much. Really no room for error.

    Dodging is your friend. Don't parry.

    I'll admit defeat on my final boss battle. I knew picking hard difficulty would come back and bite me in the ass. I've had about 50 attempts and can only get him down to 99% (from 200%)

    A few hits from him and your dead and I'm just not good enough to keep dodging him. I've no idea what he's like on normal but he's a nightmare on hard.

    Great game though and really enjoyed it. I will YouTube the ending and then sell it on. :)

    Well had another few attempts and finally beat him. Squeaky bum time at the end though when we were both down to 12% health. I just thought sod it pile in and then got to the QTE's at the end. Phew job done.

    Very tough end boss.
