This game shouldn't have got so much of a bad name before release.

The gameplay is good, you really have to be stealthy in this game, much like the original, but it pays off when you get the kill. I found quite a few glitches with this game, but maybe its just me. There were a lot of instances where the enemies would get stuck between the environmental items and run in circles or just stand there and not move until you make them (which isn't the way it was supposed to be, its an obvious glitch). And when you run to the shadows after you have been discovered the enemies sometimes stay engaged to battle but stand in the fight stance looking at you but kind of "freeze".
This game was pretty short but I saw it more of an interactive movie than a game, which is a good thing. The story is there and has a good premise. It is a nice moment when it all comes together in the end.
The executions are cool. You follow the on-screen prompts to make the action happen. Which is fun if your in a well lit are of the game to see whats happening. If you're in a dark area it is hard to see the kill.
If it was just me or if you can get around the occasional collision detection glitches and stuff like that, then this is a pretty good game. It's worth buying, gameplay wise and to show Nintendo that we want these kind of games, they say the Wii is for everyone, make games for all gamers, not just kids and non gamers.
Now I guess I'll touch the controversy. I'll make it short. This is a good game and people should experience it before they judge it, as with all games. The violence comes with the horror genre in any art form, and yes video games are art. Console companies are the ones that restrict AO games, not the ESRB or anyone else. Someone needs to come up with a way to tell these companies that they shouldn't restrict this anymore, that's why I thought they put parental controls on their systems. We didnt have parental controls a few years ago, thats when we needed the companies' restrictions, they need to update their policies.
