I've gone about 3 hours into the game and am so far not impressed. Luckily, I rented it.
It's not that the game itself is bad. The controls respond nicely, the bad guy AI adapts to you a little and it looks quite nice.
The problem is the characters and story is a little bland. The voice acting is a little weak and so far the story hasn't sucked me in.
SIDEBAR: You also don't control all 3 characters, which bugs the hell out of me, but is not a gamebreaker. The companion AI works suprisingly well. It's more of a personal gamer issue.
All in all, I'm glad I rented it. If I would have paid $60 for it, I might have been a little peeved. I'll probably pick it up when it drops to $20 or so.
If you have a Wii, I recommend this game. Just ignore the voice acting and you will be fine. I'm 25+ hours into it and I haven't even scratched the surface of what is here.
It's linear, so don't expect a "Bethseda type game" (Fallout or Elder Scrolls), but it reminds me of older Final Fantasies in a good way. The story is good, the RPG elements are good and the battle system is good.
Here's our party:
All level 3
We want to take him on, but we don't want the campaign to end if we can't do it.
Please no discussions/comments on "Do it or find out". We've been at this for 3 months and I want to move on. Our group is at a serious impass about this.

Now that President Bush and his Cabinet are almost out of office, I'm curious to see what "grade" everyone would give him and the reasons why.....in a civil tongue. :)
Lets keep it only A (Best), B, C, D, E (Worst)
I personally would give him a C. The reasons behind it are that, even though I am a Democrat and didn't agree with his policies, he didn't flip-flop to try and please everyone and I can respect that. Also, not getting attack since 9-11 helps too. Where he failed with me was Iraq (we shouldn't have gone there and they shouldn't have lied to get us there), failure to work together with the Democrats (which in all fairness, we weren't all that good about that either) and giving America this "Us versus Them" attitude about Republicans and Democrats working together.
Does anyone here think that a druid would WILLINGLY sleep in an inn?? (i.e. pay for a bed and sleep in it.) It is a subject of immense discussion amongst my D&D group with half of us saying that, while druids would PREFER to sleep outside under the stars and in trees, they also understand that a well defended city is safer than the outdoors. The other half's argument is that druids aren't all that fond of civilization and are quite at home with the "perils of the outdoors".
Tell me what you all think.
Okay, so this kinda off the wall, but I need some help
PLEASE GO TO:
AND VOTE FOR MISS PUSSYKATT! She is from MI and has one of the most amazing acts I've ever seen live! I've met her at her shows and she is also an extremely nice person that really deserves this! I promise it only takes a second to vote for her! She is thrown in as a wild card and without your vote she will be out of the competition.
Feel free to lambaste me, but if you could do it while voting...that would be swell...
My wife and I are always looking for more games we can play together that aren't FPS (since I win!) or Fighting games (since SHE wins :P). I know its probably kinda old, but we got Champions of Norrath on a whim, dusted (literally)our PS2 off, plugged it in and went to town!! What a GREAT game...even though it is the WoW universe!
