I wasn't going to buy it because I heard the PS3 issues, but once they got the patch for the install and I heard it fixed most of the issues, I decided to take a chance on it. I'm actually surprised it has recieved the glowing reception it has. Had it not recieved all the great reviews I wouldn't have been tempted to get it. So far after one day of playing it I have been totally let down. It all just screams generic in my ears and eyes and had it not been for the awesome combo system it would be bargain bin material. All in all I don't regret the purchase, and so far I would agree with an 8.2 rating. But had more reviews been 8.2 all along I would have skipped it and saved my money.
