I liked it, I didn't read up a lot on it before the release I just waited to see for myself I enjoyed the story the combat just about everything, but it has its flaws just like everyother game I'd give it a 7.5 or an 8 out of 10
Pro? Anti? It's like a bunch of 40 year old women sitting around arguing the merits of Team Edward vs. Team Jacob. You people even make the nostalgia-freak denizens of the FF XIII boards look sane by comparison.
P.S. 8.3. About even with 1 and 3, better than 4, way better than 2... but still a bit short of Bayonetta.
I don't know about reality hitting anyone, but I don't think this game got a standing ovation. Yes, there'll be people who will love this game and that's fine. But I think NT did go too far in hyping this game up. They also released way too many cutscenes and move sets, so there were no surprises to look forward to. --- Newer isn't always better. And I shall keep Dante's Force Edge polished and sharp till he comes back.
