It gets MUCH better right after you clear the smoke

I didn't find it boring, per say, it's just rather unremarkable apart from the visuals and some of the characters. It was still entertaining enough to play, though.

Though I almost never find games these days I would be willing to pay $60 for. I'll just wait for a sale, rent, or buy used.

It does start quite unremarkable. Though I was having a blast by the time I reached the place where you get the means to dispel the smoke And it only gets better and better until you finish the story.

I will say though that it doesn't deserve the amount of 10s it got. Once you finish the story and start working heavily on the side content, you go back to the unremarkable times. And you get nitpicky at how repetitive things are, how many troll bosses there are, how dreadful the climbing mechanics are...and even how your characters can say stuff that contradicts previous events: they might discuss a certain character's identity, wondering who he is, when 2 sidequests ago they talked about this character (as if I completed the sidequests in a wrong order and it's my fault). And I just can't forgive it for the 3 bugs I ran into. I hate bugs.

The game has its flaws. And they are many. I think renting it would have been ideal to me so that I wouldn't have had time to see its weakest moments I might take a break from it, actually.

EDIT: I re-read what I wrote in the "last game you completed" thread and I can't believe I'm the same person :/ Let's just say that the other me just completed the compelling story, and the me that wrote here played a few more hours after that -.-

I got it for Mother's Day, and I'm playing it now. Made it to Alfheim (sp?)

Enjoying it, for the most part. The RPG elements bother me. I've never been a fan of that kind of stuff. *shrugs* It's always seemed like make-work for people who don't like baseball, but love statistics.

I'm also not a fan of the over the shoulder camera for melee combat. It's unnatural, and add so much artificiality to the screen. If I had the right camera, I wouldn't have colored arrows sprouting from my back.

Overall, I'm enjoying it though.
