    Anyone play this with a 360 PC controller? I could do with a little mindless fun, and I don't do console. Well, except for the Wii for some quality time with the kids.

    Seems like a good game. I have too many games to play now though, will think about it when it's $5.

    its a good game and 360 pc controller = easy to use for this game just plug and go, i enjoyed it greatly also bought it during the xmass sales for $10 well worth the purchase not very many games of its type on PC and while it might be a port,

    morphological AA works and the visuals are slightly cleaner on PC, cutscene video quality isnt that good tho that or my codecs were messed up at the time , videos were grainy blotchy looked like standard def but gameplay was great.

    I love it!!!!

    Its certainly not the best game out there but it is simple button mashing fun that I enjoy laying in bed with headphones on playing late at night. It reminds me of Devil May Cry 4 and the boss battles are pretty fun. The part where you ride on the back of some winged creature is really good. I haven't played the game in a while as I am currently backlogged after really spending during the Holiday sale. The Xbox 360 controller simply turns your high powered PC into a console simple experience where it truly is plug and play.

    yea the video option thing is bad but the game runs fine on cheap hardware, got it running on an athlon 64 3800+ and an 8600gt 256mb and its playable with a frame rate around 30-35fps so no video options isnt a terrible thing as just about everyone can run the game.

    Just ordered. Perfect game for me, since I don't really have time for the more in depth RPG's. Just want some fairly mindless play for when I'm brain dead at the end of the night.

    How the hell do you save game or exit the game when you are tired of playing? Can't figure it out...

    I've been playing this for 5 hours now .... my wrist hurts lol
    Definitely a game designed for a pad, going to borrow a friends to complete this I think, just can't fight fluidly with keyboard + mouse.

    agreed, definitely need either a multi-button gaming mouse or a pad
    it's actually a neat challenge to play this game with standard kb+mouse, considering the story is pretty cool :)

    Aye I'm trying but damn, how do you they expect you to hold onto to caps key whilst avoiding attacks and press a number key? Madness!

    Also avoiding attacks due is tricky due to loosing the dash key all to often :laugh:

    Biggest problem is I don't have a gaming keyboard, so I press more than 3 keys and I get ghosting.

    I fairly often need to do just that in this game XD


    By the way, I cannot reccomend enough forcing x16 AF and what ever AA you can handle through graphics control panels.

    Makes the game much less eye hurty.

    Using a 9800gt at the moment whilst my 6870 is dead, can run at 8x AA with no noticeable slowdown, might try for x16 : ]
    So seems it's a console port that's well optimised at-least even if everything else in the port was lazy.

    Basically should be able to runs this fairly decently with most cards.
