    Personally, I like how the combat system is extremely loose. Infinite Ammo, Knockback, no cheap shots like headshots or quick scoping. Its got some sort of dodging so if your quick of hand, you can avoid getting hit by even the most persistant shots. Its a combat system that asks more for skill then weapon selection, and it is balanced without killing any fun or freedom!

    Expect what do I think of the game a bit later today. It's gonna be a LONG read. This will be from all of my experiences from the game.

    A typical response from someone who is still skeptical of playing the game because of the so called 'bad controls'.

    Nah, I'm just being an unhelpful dick. I haven't even played the game yet.

    I think even if they can be dodge, some are or about instant kills. Specialty when powers are added to it.
    While some things irk me (to name a few) like the orgs, tampora wizard, and the magnus stage, I like the game overall.

    You didn't like being Magnus? I found it kinda fun, nice change of pace (also that's like the second time you see him since the last time was in CHAPTER 2. Makes me wonder what Sakurai ment by saying Pit and Magnus were supposedly to be sort of rivals)

    It the fact the stage is cheap, specially at higher levels. The majority of his part was fighting far way archers without charge shots or powers. I like the stage, but if the enemies where more close fighting focus, it would have been better. The "wrestlers" there are just a bit cheap too, but it doesn't really irk me.

    I like to add the heart in Hades was really cheap.

    So basically, you didn't like it because it was a challenge.

    Dialogue. It's simply superb (I applaud Nintendo's Treehouse team). I'm glad Sakurai didn't demand a word for word translation or we may have got another Other M.

    I agree, some people wanted to turn the voices off, but I loved the dialog in KI. It was funny, thought was put into it, it didn't feel robotic, and it didn't treat you like you were five years old, or as is the case with many modern games, stupid. It really added personality and flare to the game.

    lolno Like the whole game?
    It just felt cheap to me period, whether it was a challenge or not.
    Agree.
    Also the sound track. Sometimes I got that Disney vibe.

    I find the graphics very beautiful.
    The Musics are good.
    The dialogs are funny (too bad the French translation is not always correctly translated*, and that there's only English dub. It's hard to read subtitles while playing)

    Lot of replay value thanks to all the weapons differences and treasure hunting.




    * They named Dark pit (pit two?) : Tip
    and changed some dialogs.

    Lol, no it was supposed to be a pun on how he's a clone of Pit. He's not Pit Two (2) but he's "Pittoo" kinda like his other clone, Put.

    And the music was amazing to, and I loved the banter. Its much better IMO then a lot of games people claim has "Amazing Voice Acting" (COUGHKINGDOMHEARTSCOUGH*) it fept like they were never really trying to be serious and it felt like a good break away from how so many damn games are SOOOOO dark and gloomy.

    Uh actually, they did name him Pittoo because he is the second Pit (as in it's clone). That was the point of the joke. Although Putt existed, they didn't take account to it when they made the joke.
    Now as for the game, It's superb.
    The single player (solo) is rather good and challenging at higher levels. The characters are lovable and the voices are rather good (which is kinda rare for a nintendo game to be fully voiced)
    Although it's the multiplayer that really keep things interesting. The combat system is fast paced and full of action.
    But my favorite thing in the game is the weapon system (especially the fusion system). So much combinations you can use to form your weapon, it's nearly endless.
    It's a game that will keep you playing for a very long time.
    (I decided to keep my message short, it was gonna be too long to RANT)

    Then you were supposed to say he is Pit two as in Pittoo, hence the pun.

    Actually, Zantigo was right. He's not Pit two, but Pittoo, because he's Pit # 2. The difference being, he isn't Pit Two, that's not his name, thus Pittoo is correct simply because he is a Pit clone, or Pit # 2.

    Pit: Pittoo...
    Palutena: Pittoo. As in Pit two. As in Dark Pit. Pretty clever name don't you think?
    There's the pun. I never said the name wasn't correct. I (and Zantigo) said where the pun comes from.
