Summary

One of the very best console games.

The Good

The most beautiful, alive, inventive game I've ever seen, and the fictional universe I'd most like to step into. The interface and gameplay are perfect, and every puzzle and monster is creative, but the best thing here is the overwhelming imaginative rendering of the game's 3D universe, the landscapes, towns, and dungeons, each with its own music and atmosphere and personality, in which, to some extent, you can wander around at will and take your time.

The Bad

The game has an ending. It should go on forever. Also, a little too much running.

The Bottom Line

A total masterpiece fantasy adventure game.
