It just shows what the PS3 can do when developers use it's insanely designed architecture to it's full potential. I also like that one of the best looking blockbuster action games also has great characters and voice work and a story that holds together.

It's done incredibly well and the game also has a lot of small references to a bunch of Lovecraft's short stories.
I'm gonna have to seek it out, I'm baffled as to why it's not on digital distribution yet.

I just loved how they generally never attacked if you didnt attack them first or touch the sisters, but they jusat pushed you away. As an old school gamer that was used to shoot at everything inn sight, learning that you could actually cross their way and go on, was one of the many pleasantly distiurbing things in this universe.

I seriously hope their role is expanded in the sequel.
I think it's become one of my favourite games (up there with Half Life 2, STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl and Rez), even if it does fall apart in the third act. I loved watching the Big Daddies and Little Sister's interact, such an atmospheric world. I have high hopes for the sequel but I'm unsure why multiplayer is there, beyond sales.
