You know, this was an interesting concept. You play as a character from a good RPG, that is optional to the point that you can completely miss him and actually miss all references to him. You play as Vincent Valentine, a gun-toting and awesomely designed character that is intense and awesome.
What really drags this game down is the camera and controls. It's a decently solid title with some interesting moments and some great fun but it fails in some basic places. The number one thing I can remember is the camera. It was not responsive. The only other thing I can remember is the difficulty, it is sometimes easy as pie but the next level could be intense and frustrating.
For a game like this, it is hard to say I love it. I mean I stopped playing this game for about 3 years before coming back and beating it. The gun customization system was a pretty cool concept and definitely I would like to see more of it. This was not a bad game and I wish Square Enix had used the engine again (with some tweaks) because it was fun to play.
