Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII - hands on

What has become more obvious is just how dark and creepy this game's story seems to be. Yes, in Japanese, the image of soldiers herding innocent townspeople into metal boxes was startling, but coupled with the more salient details of the plot (1200 dead in one town; threats of genocide from a maniac who steals the airwaves to broadcast his message of hate) becomes much clearer in finely-dubbed English. It looks as if this might a story that will be worth the attention it'll inevitably get either way.
