Enchanted Arms review

You won't want to hug your 360 with these tired Arms

As tiresome as the fighting encounters come to be, the real ennui source is the strictly linear "exploration." Every step of the way is dictated by strategically placed debris and irritating "we shouldn't go that way right now" dialogue. The characters - the dunce leader, the incredibly effeminate sidekick, the quiet protector - are little more than one-note cardboard cut-outs in this supposed epic. Equipment upgrades top out at synthesizing a new weapon now and then, and the skills you can purchase don't make enough of a difference in the field.
