    Well, here is why I'm asking about it... My (poorly written) book is going to be based upon it and I wanted to figure out how many people knew about it!

    As a book it would be pretty good. As a game, I'm ambivalent - I love the atmosphere and the harsh, but fair, difficulty, but I absolutely cannot stand the pace of the gameplay. Everything just feels like it's drowning in frozen molasses, from running around to combat animations. I think if Platinum Games were to have made it, I'd have been a lot more willing to play the franchise.

    But gameplay issues aside, I really think it would make a good book.

    I love it, not the animations, I couldn't care less about that, but I love the storyline, which I think is more important than the slow-paced attacks, which really aren't that slow.

    Never played it. Heard lots of good things about it. Sounds like something my SO might enjoy, but we're too busy playing Smash. :p
