one of best games of this generation for me anyway:p if maybe sony have been more suportive for this game like adding trophies or re-realase it later with all dlc but they dont give a s**t just like with ICO and SOTC in PS2 era

I am very sure Europe would have bought this game to near America numbers. I am sure this was a game to have legs and get some word of mouth, but unfortunately it took me about a year of searching to finally get a barely used copy with original book and cover at Gamestop. I would have preferred to buy it new to support the developers but I couldn't find one.

Hey Artur, when you tire of your house, would you mind giving it to me? You'll be buying a new one right? I mean, think of all of those builders, they're niche too. I'm also in the market for a car, so whatever you have is fine. Just let me know when you're getting a new one, and you can gladly donate the old one to me.

My friend ended up with a spare copy, so I got this game for free, but I never really enjoyed the combat, which kind of ruins the game. I also did not like that you had to have the exact right folk to acheive stuff, rather than being able to use other ones, even if it is trickier

Everyone. Preserve.

The 2nd and 4th world are kinda hard to get through. However.

From the 5th world on, you can't stop playing. It's phenominal. The story takes an absolutely HUGE twist. Marvelous last 2 hours or so.

It brought the game from a 7.0-7.5 rating to a 8.5-9.0 rating for me. Wonderful ending. Get to it. It's worth it.
