I even started taking notes in order to latter list all the issues I had with the game here on GameFAQS. Then I realized that I had been playing for over 6hrs and should stop in order to give my 360 a rest...but I didnt want to stop, I wanted to keep going. All I wanted to do the next day at work was go home and continue playing this game....which I did...all night!
Not an interesting story but pretty ironic, I hated this game and then ended up loving it despite its flaws
I am about 5 hours in and I am really enjoying it. Once you start to get some better weapons and level up combat is great fun. Also the side quests add depth and I find the characters likable. The game world and its locales are really nice and thoughthe adventure begins in a very linear fashionand tends to stay there, the various places you travel to and visit provide enough free roam variety to make this game well worth the purchase.
