Anyone got it yet? I'm getting AFTER the Nov dash update, but has anyone here tried it? Review are coming back very good. Good Game gave it a 9 and a 9.5!

Can't wait, loved the first, glad they didn't hype this game quite AS much.

My girlfriend should be bringing it home with her around 5:30... looking forward to giving it a try, and I'll post some impressions, but I will probably keep playing Dead Space until I beat it and get into Fable 2 later.

You sent your girlfriend out to get a game at 5:30am! You sir are my hero!

I sent mine to get Fable II. Came back with Lego Batman and a pre order for the Sims 3. ::(:

Played 1/2 hour so far. Not exactly what I expected but seems like it will simplistic fun. Reminds me of Beyond Good and Evil.

I find the voices hard to understand with the accents. Good thing it has subtitles.

Played the whole tutorial, which took like 2 hours somehow... or maybe I'm weird. In any case, the game looks amazing at times, and I like the general feel of the world, but like Fable it has a really clunky feel. Menus, interactions and even walking around just doesn't feel as smooth and polished as most AAA titles, and the interface is lame.

Still, I will surely enjoy the game, and look forward to getting further into it.

Played one of the review copies. My brother's best friend works at Lionhead. I actually saw the game being made. MAN world designing is hard. There's a bunch of stuff a normal viewer doesn't pay attention to.

The game is great! If you've played the first one, there's stuff from the first one. You see the same guild of heroes hall thing and stuff.

I loved the first one. I played it for HOURS and got all the abilities.

The first had a really long tutorial too. One which you had to complete fully to save. If you saved before completing it you'd have to start the WHOLE thing again...

I somehow just played the game for 5 hours without even realizing how long it had been... one of those moments where you look at the clock, expect to see about 2:00AM, but instead see 6:30AM.

So... I guess the game is better than I expected.

My friend and I tried the CO-OP, it's pretty lame, we went through a couple areas together, but your stuck w/out your avatar (gotta use some pre-built one), while my buddy got to keep the exp & gold he made in my game, that was it. I'm pretty disappointed in the CO-OP portion, horribly "tacked on".

But other then that the rest of game is pretty darn good, though I made the mistake of killing an innocent early on so I've been trying to fix my image ever since lol. Combat can lag with more then 8 enemies or so making it difficult to do special moves or use your will.

The game is quite beautiful though, and the story is very well done too. I already love my dog. The extra features of owning businesses, homes, etc. Is a nice addition to the game and good way to start building a steady income. The mini-games aren't bad either, I'm now a level 5 woodcutter and blacksmith! :)

I like how the game can be completely linear or not, there's so much to do on the path to wherever you are going it takes hours to check it all out, but it's enjoyable to do so. I also like that I can simply walk away from a main story person and come back to them later if I want to do something else, makes the game feel very open and free.

One completely awesome feature is that you can see your friends icon in-game (and it moves when they move too!) if they are in the same area as you, you even join a voice-chat channel if you are in the same area and can talk to each other. Me and two of my friends were in the blacksmith leveling up in the mini-game just chatting away. You can even interact with the icons and pass items/gold to each other. Very cool. :)

Thinking about trying this out this weekend. Just a question for those that put a few hours into it.....how is the aging process handled this time around?

I remember it being way too fast in the first game. I was an old man in no time in that game and it was pretty annoying. Did they slow down that process this time around?

So far I love the game. I only got to play for just over an hour but It was very fun. I love my dog too. I praise him and play fetch with him all the time. Every time he finds treasure I praise him up. When he gets injured I actually feel bad and heal him right away.

The graphics are simply awesome. The best I've seen on a console. As I stated before, I love how warm the game feels. Playing this game in front of a fireplace on a cold winter evening sets the mood for a perfect gamin experience. I make it sound way to romantic but the whole game is obviously trying to push the romantic feel of this world.

my biggest problem with the game is there isn't any sense of danger in the game. I never feel as if I am challeged in the fights.
