The game holds up well, except the lack of it being any fun, oh, and the fact you can't skip any of the long and boring story. It's pretty though, but it is seriously one of my biggest regrets buying this game. Don't believe the hype when it comes to this game.

It's a story-driven game. Why would you want to skip the main part of the game? Yes, it is a little long-winded, but the game has a lot of heart.

Thank you for giving me license to completely discount all of your opinions, past, present and future.

Believe the hype, what little there is. The game is one of the most beautifully crafted experiences to ever grace the medium. Almost every facet of the title borders of perfection.

As for being story driven, to a certain extent it is. But it still allows for a remarkable level of freedom not present in the majority of games. After all, extraneous content makes up the bulk of the experience.

Capcom is definitely regretting the decision for making the HD version for ps3 only.... the game got completely ignored and it sold very little... ps3fanbois prefer their ps all stars more i guess

You sure like to talk your of your ass don't you? Unless you care to back up your horseshit with a direct quote from Capcom?

Didn't think so.

Damn you're bitter. It's frankly hilarious. xD

How do you know the game was ignored and that it sold very little? Capcom nor Sony have released details on how much it sold.

I liked the time I spent with the game quite a bit. It is a beautiful world full of quirky strange characters. I think really the only negative that I had with the game was that the extraneous content makes up the bulk of the experience. If I hadn't had to spend so much time picking up treasures, reviving and feeding non essential plants and animals, I think I would have enjoyed a streamlined version of the game a little more.

I loved the world with the variety of locales, characters, and activities, and I do enjoy how the game builds using newly unlocked abilities to access new areas in new and old locations. For me it seemed gameplay driven more than anything else; the goal seems to be acquire all the abilities and use them more than it is to complete the story.

For what it's worth, I enjoyed it and look forward to finishing it. Also, I would never want to skip the dialogue because they are funny and well writter, but I do wish you could advance them more quickly. Minor gripe in a pretty and pretty great game.
