I wanted to leave it until a few chapters through but my first impressions are that i'm really liking this game.
The combat is quite simplistic but it strikes a good balance of action, fighting, platforming, and good storytelling.
I love the memory remix elements, where you try and affect the outcome of someones memory so they behave differently. Going through a scene and changing one or two (or more) things to see the outcome is really interesting as there are multiple ways it can play out.
I get the criticisms that the game is linear, but it is trying to tell a story so i'll give it that.
It feels quite similar to Enslaved, and I do have a feeling that this game might go the same way. Not a lot of attention on release but might pick up a lot once its in the bargain bin and has a built up bit of a reputation.
Very stylish game. Well acted, fairly well executed.
I would personally give it a solid 8/10 so far. Hopefully it keeps it up throughout the whole game.
