This is the ultimate character interaction game where you can decide if you want to fight for good or evil. I recently, picked it up about 2 weeks ago and haven't put it down since. You are going to start your own character based on a class that suits your needs. For me, I like playing as a soldier but I am already trying to decide what class I want to play as the second time around.

So what makes this different from any other role playing game you might play on the 360. Well, a traditional RPG will give you a paragraph of items or things you are supposed to do on a quest. However, this game sets its' self apart from the others by actually having cut scenes where they explain the quest. This helps the people that just don't like to read. Really, stimulates your brain in the visual aspect. I think every RPG developer should take a note from them.

The storyline in this game is awesome. I don't want to ruin the plot or story, but it takes place in space and you are going to be on a quest to help resolve a conflict. You are going to make decisions of either to fight for good or evil. From the looks of it you might think it is a shooter, but that is not true at all.

You are going to be controlling one guy/girl that you create. Along with them you are going to be controlling two others. It is not really a squad based RPG. The commands you will give them are more like cover or go to a certain spot. They will then fight independently, as you fight alongside of them.

Controls are good, but there is a degree of know-how that you are going to have to master before getting deep into the game. For instance, if you just go around shooting everything you will learn very quickly that you are going to get blasted to smithereens. I made this mistake for the first hour of play.

But, the gameplay is amazing and feels insanely natural. Aside from the occasional idiotic AI that will act silly at times. For instance, your group member might just run into a spot that is invested with tons of enemies. However, this is probably not the AI's fault, but rather mind for not controlling them correctly.

The bottom line is the game is amazing. I have heard there are going to be three installments of this game and haven't even got bored with the first one at all. You will get your moneyÂ’s worth out of this game, for sure.
