I’m almost finished with this game, and I’m so happy for numerous reasons. One, the game never really got that interesting. Every now and then, something would happen in the story where I would say, “Huh,” but then there wasn’t any real follow through. I’m guessing that when I beat the final boss there will be this huge revelation or some blah blah blah but I’m not sure I care.
For two, it is not comfortable to play this game for very long. I could play Phantom Hourglass for a few hours at a time, because it utilizes the stylus. You don’t need the stylus at all in this game, especially after you remove the touch function for the camera controls (which I highly, highly recommend) and after an hour of frantically pushing buttons to jump, attack, dodge/block, and glide, my hands freaking hurt. Not my thumbs, mind you, my hands. The rectangle frame just isn’t that ergonomic.
I plan on writing a “I guess I’m the only one who hates this game” piece over at Kombo whenever I finish the game, which I hope will either be at the end of this week or next. I guess I’m not in a huge hurry as I really have until November 17th to finish it, when Assassin’s Creed II releases. At the same time, I am in a hurry because I just want to get it over with.
I feel like I’ve had this attitude with a KH game before…oh yeah, it was about Chain of Memories, and hey, the games actually have a lot in common. Coincidence? HA!
