Try not to read many reviews (or the manual) but instead play through it and you'll find a charming game with many surprises and twists.

The only thing that I would say is that it is a slow game with a lot of dialogue. If you like fast-pace, then you'll hate it. Then again in the age of trade-ins it's win/win!
Cool I got paid today, maybe I will tread myself :D
Let me know what you think if you pick it up.
I got a copy on Staurday woo hoo, only not had the time to play it over the weekend :(

The bit I have played, I really enjoyed, I look forward to giving it a serious play tonight :D

Just bought the new tenchu for the 360. The levels seem the same as the ps1 version. Nice enough though

Resident Evil 4 Wii edition purchased today. Only played the first few minutes, but the wiimote makes things much easier than the GC version. Mind you, I never played much further on GC...

Spiderman 2 GC has been getting an outing as I humm and hahh about Spiderman 3 for Wii. I didn't like 2 first time round so didn't really play it much, but this time I'm enjoying it. Bodes well for the Wii version if I can forgive its ugliness.

Onto the final level of Halo last night. Bit annoyed as I'd played a fair way through it and powered off, forgetting to save for the checkpoint, so I'm back to the start of the level.

Hurrican needs to get an outing.

- Corpse Killer on the 3DO. A damned fine game.
- La Pucelle: Tactics on the PS2. A damned game that has just PWND me. (don't kill the villagers - oh really?)
- Super Stardust HD on the PS3. A damned addictive game.

Got a bit stuck in FFX at the final run of bosses, so rather than spending hours grinding to level up a bit, I put FFXII in and had a quick dabble...
A week later, and I'm over 35 hours in and absolutely loving it! Best Final Fantasy yet in my opinion and could possibly be the first one I bother to spend time 100%-ing.

I've just got Tomb Raider Anniversary today, so I'll be playing that for the next week or two. I never played the first one, so it's good to see how it started (I know it's not exactly the same as TR1, but it's heavily based on it).

I actually completed a game yesterday! Been a while. It was the very first Final Fantasy, on my PS1 copy of FF Origins which I have owned for years but always given up on around Elfheim due to the tedious grinding. Once I forced myself to get past that I actually found myself enjoying it.
I used Fighter, Black Belt, White Mage, Black Mage.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

Still playing Final Fantasy XII at the moment, about 80 hours in now (sheesh!) and still loving it. Other than that, I've been getting into Colin McRae Rally 2005 and Rainbow Six 3, both on PS2.
