This is probably one of the best PS2 games I have ever played. It does take time to get used to the controls though and at first you may find yourself constantly dying. With patience you will quickly get used to the controls and the game actually becomes quite fun. Let me say that this game is very challenging though but not so hard you'll find yourself throwing the controller. What can I say: Great graphics, great gameplay, and an O.K. story. Buy this game because it is one of the most innovative games you'll probably play. I'm glad that Capcom went in a different direction, adding more action, more weappons, and a better story.
