ARS: The game was a pleasant surprise, and it matches its high graphical polish with responsive controls and familiar-if well-worn-gameplay. A few battles felt cheap in places, and some of the swinging puzzles were a little touchy, but those are our only complaints. There is even an online co-op mode with user-created content called the Trials of St. Lucia coming in April... the game will be getting more content and modes to keep you interested after launch.
EA will be forgiven for "borrowing" with such heavy hands due to the quality and polish on Dante's Inferno. If you're in the mood for an action game, and don't mind some rough subject matter, this is a trip to hell you'll want to sign up for. On the other hand, most people won't care enough about future content to want to hold onto the game until April, and you'll be able to beat the game in under 10 hours or so if you don't mind not finding everything. This isn't an automatic buy, but it's much better than it has any right to be. If you do drop the $60, we won't blame you.
