This game is awesome. Once again, most of the media has got it wrong. Well, except Gamepro, they got it correct.
The story is cool. The upgrades are cool. The combat (once you get use to it) is really cool. The only drawback is the camera, but I am getting use to it. The game provides a challenge from the beginning. For example, the second boss battle hones your ranged weapon skills. Other bosses, as expected, hone other skills and challenge you to find their weakness. I highly recommend this game.
