I had pre-ordered the collectors edition of the game two months before launch and picked it up a day or two after release and really liked the game and the extras for the CE. Anyone else with me on this?
I returned it. Dont laugh but I couldnt do the music box level. I tryed for 5hrs over 2 days. It broke my will to live lol Shame but I dont think Ill ever go back to it. It made me want to play gow3 🙂
I cant remember what level it was I got stuck on, but it was fruustrating, lol.
The games graphics were surprisingly good, it was one of the best underrated games I've seen. Think of God of War but with a longer story.
If you're planning on finishing the game within a few days, you better be ready to put some good quality couch-time in...cause the game is pretty sizable.
As for my impressions of the game? So far the most over-looked game I've played in a few years (possibly this whole gen)! I can understand the gripes about the puzzle difficulty...myself, I found them just about right (although the music box lvl is a bit strenuous).
The biggest fault of this game (I equate it as the ONLY thing keeping this title from greatness), is the unusually clunky platforming mechanics. This is one of those games where you could put time in mastering the combat mechanics (great mechanics btw), perfect your timing to the point of not being touched while making you feel like quite the badass...
...yet make you die at least 5 times trying to get from one cliff to another.
Even with the platforming short-comings, I would highly recommend the game to those that are looking for a (quality)challenge.
Get back to me once you hit the music box level lol I still have nightmares about it.
And we'll soon get extra levels by DLC. Hope it's not as expensive as other DLC ($5 I can do on day one. $10+ means I'll wait for a sale).
My mom got me C:LoS for christmas, it was an awesome game.
Personally I like it better than GoW III~!
This game is on my list of games to get this year. What is it about the Music Box level that makes it so horrible?
Honestly the music box level isn't that bad...it's pure trial-n-error with a tiny bit of logic thrown in. Think it's the time limit that are throwing guys off(?)...but it's nothing that can't be beatin with a lil determination.
....just wish the DLC was as good as the rest of the product.
Only thing I didn't liked was how the CE had everything in one place instead of giving us a separate game/soundtrack disc case. Guess I won't ever be selling this one hahaha.
Saw the CE for sale in Gamestop.. packaging looked really good actually.
