So, I bought the game last Friday, had it beat by Monday, and am already working towards beating it a second time on recruit.
Alot of my friends have complained about it, but all their complaints are looking at it from an action shooter. I see it as an amazing new breed of RPG with one heck of a story. Not to mention how much you can change the story yourself. Nevertheless, it's definitely made me play my 360 more than anything within the last year or so.
