Yeah, I really enjoyed it - as frustrating as it was at points. I actually liked just free running around the most, trying to get a flow going. The jumping puzzles were a challenge, sometimes a bit too much so, but I got into it. The combat was the part I really didn't like, I wished it gave more options for avoiding conflict and dodging around, etc.

I do hope they do the promised sequel - and don't screw it up.

I can see how it is a love/hate game though - I can easily see how the things I loved about it would frustrate the hell out of some players.

Were your hands ever sore after playing? I played through the 360 version and the constant reaches up to LB on the 360 controller were seriously wrist-killing. I've heard the PS3 controller is better, though.

I wrote a long and ranty review of how much I hated the controls (and how I thought pvp combat was badly designed) here if you're super bored.

The pad of my left thumb is still sore AND numb, I think I damn near got a blister. I probably push too hard, but it was the rapid directional changes to do the wall jumps, etc, that did it. I had to do some of those levels (the Atrium was hell) over and over and over, literally for an hour or more until I got it down. I'd master one puzzle to get to the next - die and have to do it over.
