    Cautious to buy, but in the end it was worth every penny- and then some. A solid 9 out of 10

    I started playing this last week, and OMG am I enjoying it. After reading an FAQ on the combo mechanics, the challenges are starting to open up for me as well. The extremely smooth fighting, the compelling story, the genuinely rewarding search for riddles and trophies, the Metroid-like progression achieved by finding new gadgets, this game has everything.

    AA is an awesome game, almost ruined by ridiculously large biceps and an endless parade of boss battles that ignore all of the abilities you collect during the course of the game. This is a great start, but there is plenty of room for improvement in AA2.

    I'm not finished with this game yet, but I think it's awesome. I've been playing for 2 days now and I've gotten tons of achievements and gamer score. Although I don't like the point of view (third person and to an angle) I like the fighting alot. Thats pretty fun to.

    Overrated trash! Nah I'm kidding, I LOVE THIS GAME! But it is pretty hard.

    It definitely has all kinds of gameplay. We've got puzzles, stealth, and head-on action. And even though they're getting old, Kevin and Mark still have their talent.

These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-striking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
