I played this a lot over the weekend. It's starts out slowly with a lot of story elements. I almost couldn't make it through, because I found it difficult to keep all the characters in check and know what was going on. But once you break through the gameplay becomes pretty fun and enjoyable.
Did they ever add character names above the dialogue of who was speaking? I played the PC version when it first came out. I found the giants really hard to keep track of because of how similar they looked and their unfamiliar sounding names. Once you get to the human characters itís not a problem but the early section could have been made a lot better with a slight change in interface/art direction.
I still greatly enjoyed the game though.
