This is hands down, bar-none the absolute best hack n slash game ever made.
Its only singular problem is the fact that half the game you change characters (which is not bad) and you backtrack the entire game (which is bad) with very little change in level layout. But thats it. Nothing else is wrong with this game.
Everything from the sound to the animations to the cutscenes to the voice acting is perfect for this FUN and beautifull action game. It can be picked up by inexperienced players easily (thanks to the automatic) but has incredible depth to its combat thanks to everything being based around timing and when you pull something off its extremely satisfying. Everything just feels....spot on. Its only flaw, the backtracking, is not that bad and i can excuse it because for a game where everything is so spot on and beautifull i truly dont think the creators wanted to make second half of the game this way.
